Change of Mind...

SOoooo.... after doing that last post about Brooke's room a few things have happened...
I ended up ordering the crib and changing table after searching long and hard to see if I could find a better deal on anything I liked and nope this was the best deal out there for us! So we ordered it Monday night and the crib arrived here this morning.... with free shipping... WOW!!! I can't wait to peek in the box and see the color of the wood and thickness of it and all (since I never saw it in person). Hope it is nice?? We will not put it all together till the room is painted, which should not start happening till April'ish, but we have a crib YEAH!!!! What a huge moment for us :)
And for the bedding, well, I was going to make it and was excited about it and all but kinda stressed out about it too. First of all, I am not really the biggest seamstress quite yet so I was planning on learning on the bedding. Also, when to find the time with working full time and doing some photography jobs on the side and well, being tired and all, and then finding a teacher. I got a great point in a good direction from a friend of mine that commented on my blog (thanks girl) and I checked out the bedding at Babies R Us and found something I LOVE and that is totally on the lines of what I wanted and I think it will be cheaper to buy than for me to make all my own stuff, this is it...

I think it is super cute and goes well with the country type theme! Do you like?
I still think I am going to make her the blanket I have pictured below because I totally LOVE IT, but I will not feel in as big of a hurry and as stressed to do it. So yeah, that is my update for now. Not that you really care I am sure, but I am just so super excited about all this baby stuff and can't stop thinking or talking about it all, so yeah, another baby post. Annoyed yet??? If so SORRY :(
O and I got HUGE this week, all at once, it is crazy how this belly grows in spurts! I only plan on taking a picture once a month but I feel this growth has been significant so I had to post it since people keep thinking I look small in the pictures but in real life my belly does not look so small. SEE!!! I look SUPER PREGNANT and for all of you that have spoken to me lately, you are lucky to get a picture with my face in it :)

It's true...I think making it yourself tends to be more expensive. Sad. But I've always been a fan of the pink and brown thing and never been able to use it. So enjoy it. Plus, I NEVER get sick of reading about your excitement for the baby. Nothing is more exciting than a first baby. You're obviously going to be a great mom.

I really like that bedding. That's really cute! how fun for you guys!! you guys should do bead board on the bottom half. It looks really good and i think it would really go with the country theme. Then I would paint the top half pink or do dark pink and light pink stripes. you know what i mean?

Emily said...

That is perfect! I love all of it :) You are showing now, so is my sister-in-law! I think you are smart, you have so much on your plate right now!

Sarah said...

I really like the bedding in this post! The one before was cute too, but this one wins in my book. Good choice. And...you're looking so great! Love the growing bump!

Chris and Jenn said...

Look at your cute belly!! so FUN! Ok so I like the boy bedding just like your girl bedding.... crazy huh? I kept clicking on it on several diff websites but I have a few in mind so we will see. I have changed my thinking on having my sis make mine too... too much work and I just don't feel like dealing with it!! :) All of this is so EXCITING so I am glad we can be excited together!!

Liz said...

Will the 1st or 2nd Saturday in April work for pictures? I know one of them is General Conference, but I'm not sure which one! Just let me know because we will be in San Diego for both weekends!

The Gray Family said...

The Hardy's said...

Hey Mrs. Preggers!
Love the bedding. Good choice and smart move to buy it pre made! And good job on putting a picture with your face not cut out! You look great! And now when Brooke is born and looks at all of the pictures of her growing in your belly...she will know that her Mommy really did have a head! lol. Hope to see you guys this weekend. Saturday???? Oh, your belly has grown since Monday!!! So exciting!!! And FUN!!!!

Dacia said...

usually it ends up costing the same amount if you want cute fabric. I'd buy it too because it's so cute! Just like your belly :)

The Bruer Clan said...

I LOVE the pattern/blanket!! That would be SO CUTE! I LOVE the colors! Your belly is so cute and SMALL! I do have to say, SORRY for going STRAIGHT for it today at enrichment! Good seeing you! Hope you are doing good! ;)

Tammy and Chris said...

Cute bedding, and really cute prego lady!!

Amanda said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE seeing you all prego! It just makes me smile! And you look great in that pic. I just can't wait to see little Brookers!
I love the crib! And I love the bedding. Not that I don't think you would have made adorable bedding yourself, but I think your life will be much easier buying it. Still make her a blanky so that she has something made by mama, but I think it is fine to buy the crib set. It is way cute too!
You are going to be a mama!!! Can you believe it?!

Todd + Emily said...

Reading these posts and seeing all the cute girl stuff your kind of making me want to have at least one girl!!! And I'm glad you took a picture with your gorgeous face! your so funny!!! Ok so I like this baby set up better and it is so cute! Plus your probably going to spend more money trying to make it and save money and stress with just buying it!!!

Mashaide said...

Oh I love that set. I think it was one of my favorites when I was going through them. I just love pink and brown. Those are the colors I used for my reception. So exciting! It will be so fun to see you put the room together and seeing the final outcome. Because I know you will be taking pictures of the process. FUN!

The Picketts said...

First - you're stinkin' cute with that baby belly! Second- BUY it! Don't stress about making it! I had my mom make it - and it almost stressed me out too much just for HER to make it! You can always make something special for her LATER! (That's my 2 cents)

Heather said...

I totally feel you on the stress and cost, you'll be happy to know that you are right to do it this way! :) Working full time and trying to do by myself would have put me over the edge for sure! You look good and your belly is so awesome!!! Love it!

The Woot-en Clan said...

I love the bedding! It is so cute. You look great also :) How are you feeling? We all need to hang out soon!

The Perry Family said...

Cute baby bedding, cute belly!

Collin and Hilary Hanson said...

Sarah! YOU LOOK SO CUTE! I cant believe how big your belly is getting... i nearly feel off my chair. i cant believe i havent seen you for that long. oh and I LOVE the baby bedding. what a stylish little girl she's gonna be! by the way... i love hearing about all the baby stuff going on!

Anderson Family said...

The bedding is adorable! I love those colors together too. It's so much fun getting the nursery ready :) You look great, it's amazing how your body changes and that little baby get closer and closer to getting here!

Melissa said...

It seriously ends up costing a pretty penny to make your own... and not to mention at lot of time. I love the pink and brown... and that lantern is very chic!

The McPherson Family said...

I loved this bedding when I was looking for Cozette, but it wasn't what I had in mind for her. We ended up doing lady bugs. The nursery will be adorable! I love it!
