Custom Moon Prints from Breezy & Co.
Custom Prints from Breezy + Co. || Moon & Back, Dream Big, Moon Prints, Nursery, Space Theme

This post is extremely over due, because I received these custom prints from Breezy & Co before Grey was born andddd now he's six months old. Sorry, Bri! When I told her what I wanted in my nursery she started designing me these pieces and kept me in the loop throughout the design process. I couldn't be happier with how they turned out! You can buy these same prints in her shop, here and here

Breezy & Co doesn't only do custom prints though. She does blog design and other graphic design projects as well! She has so many great reviews from her previous clients, and I am just as satisfied with the work she did for me! If you're looking for a fresh look in your home or on your blog, she is your girl! You can contact her here. Scroll down to see the hidden treasure I found in the package she sent me...

How cute is this extra print she included in my package to pay it forward? It made me SO happy to turn around and share this sweet print with someone else. There's nothing quite like the feeling you get when you uplift and serve others. So just go check out Breezy & Co. I promise you won't be disappointed. 

Pregnancy Diary: 33 weeks
Pregnancy Diary: 33 Weeks || ADOS

It's starting to get really real over here. At my appointment on Monday the baby was measuring at 4 lbs 9 oz. I'm well on my way to having another 8 pounder. Insert distressed emoticon here. My doctor suggested I think about being induced at 39 weeks because my last delivery was so difficult. I can't believe how much comfort it brought me to hear him say those words. Knowing that's an option and that my doctor wants me to have an easy delivery brings me such peace of mind.

It's not really until now that I realized how traumatizing my first delivery was. As the day is approaching to have Grey, I am feeling more anxiety and fear that it will be exactly the same as last time. While I've received a lot of encouragement from family and friends that my body knows what to do now, I can't help but think about how I felt like a failure for the first three and a half hours of pushing with Turner. Granted, I didn't have much of a coach throughout the process. I only saw my doctor 5 or 6 times in the 10 hours I was at the hospital. 

Still, it was frustrating to me to think I wasn't strong enough to push out my baby. He was in the birth canal for 4 hours before he arrived. I feel completely responsible for his stay in the NICU.  I have prayed so many times that with Grey it will be different. That it'll be a smooth delivery. That I will have the strength and ability to ensure a healthy delivery for him. I don't know if an induction will help me do that, but I'm hoping to be inspired to know what will be best for me and my sweet baby boy. 

Until then I'm choosing to stay hopeful. To have faith in myself and my experiences. To trust in my Father in Heaven. I'm choosing to be grateful for a healthy child and an uncomplicated pregnancy. For the blessing to be a part of creating another human life. I'm choosing to think about the first time I'll hold my precious son in my arms, and when he will meet his incredible father and his big brother. That day will be the sweetest of days. And although I'm afraid, I'm dreaming of that day to come.

Turner's Big Boy Room || DINO-MITE

Over the holidays, Matthew and I talked about finishing the bedroom in the basement for Turner before the baby arrived. Of course, the next day, I started creating an inspiration board for Turner’s big boy space. I wanted it to be modern, with pops of bright color. I wanted it to start as a dinosaur room (his current obsession), but able to evolve with him, especially if we’re in this house with our third baby. With a few changes, it can be easily transitioned for him and Grey to share the space.

This inspiration board was also the inspiration for Turner’s birthday party theme on my last post. I love the way the black, white, gray and lime look together! It was very important to me for there to be lots of storage space for toys and books that are currently spread all over the floor of our family room. Haha! My favorite elements are the lime green bug lamp and lime accent storage bench from Ikea, the wall hanging, and those triangle shaped display shelves. I'm almost more excited to decorate this room than I am the nursery. Almost.

This mama is nesting big time and I’m hoping we can pull it all together before Grey arrives! I’ll keep you posted. What other elements do you think are necessities for Turner’s big boy room?? Let me know in the comments below!

Nursery Mood Board || Little Moon Boy

You guys. We're having another BOY! Turner is going to have a little brother! I cannot tell you how thrilled I am about this. We had a second option boy name picked out when Turner was born that we LOVED and decided to use it for our next one. Grey Matthew Salter.  

I've been nesting big time now that I know the gender. I'm a total freak when it comes to decorating the nursery. I've completely torn apart Turner's room and gone through all of his old clothes. (So glad I kept them! The newborn stuff is so little and got hardly any wear so it still looks brand new!) It's getting me SO excited to have a little baby around the house again.

We're going to try and get the third bedroom in the basement all finished/remodeled so Turner can move down there and I can get started on baby Grey's vintage space themed nursery!!! I created a mood board -- because I love creating them -- and to guide me while decorating before baby arrives! All items are numbered and linked at the bottom of this post.  Let me know what you think!

One more thing...what do you guys feel is essential for baby #2? It's another boy so clothes are pretty covered. We still have a car seat, crib, changing table, baby carrier, single stroller, bumbo, and bassinet. I feel like most things I want for baby #2 are for my enjoyment and because I'll need to accommodate two children instead of one. My main things on the list are a double stroller, covered goods nursing cover (my old one was a pain), huge diaper bag/backpack, puj tub so I can bathe newborn separate from Turner while still super little, but still do all the bathing at the same time. Those may seem like silly items to some, but I feel like they will make my life so much easier. Please help me!! Leave comments below with your must haves! Lots of love!
