In ONE month!

Dear Tula,
Mommy goes back to her first full week of work tomorrow! I have enjoyed the summer playing with your big sister, Ivy, organizing every nook of our home, and preparing for your arrival. I have had some not fun times completing boring grad school assignments, fighting heart burn, and dealing with insurance people. Overall it has been a fantastic summer! When God planned your arrival (with the help of Daddy and I) we decided it would be great to start the school year and then have a maternity leave. That is a super plan except for feeling the need to be completely ready for you 1 month early and the tiredness and fatigue that come with starting the school year at 36 weeks preggo! But for you my dear, you are totally worth it. We can't wait to meet you. Ivy talks about you daily and thinks you are going to come out playing baby dolls and candy land. :) Your room is complete.... well, except one thing... you! One month from today you will be in my arms. Can't wait!
Love,
Mommy

Tula's bed and name.... we so love her name! We were worried that we would not find a name that we absolutely love the way we do Ivy's but we really are crazy about it!

Tula's dresser and diaper changing table.... which will be adorned with adorable, cuddly cloth dipes this time around! We are excited- blogging about that soon!

Wall decor :) Daddy loves Tula so much because putting up that wall decal was rather tedious!

Tula's second-hand, looks like new rocker! We could not take Ivy's rocker (since we still rock... and plan to until I simply can't hold her), so an awesome friend offered hers for FREE because it had some minor stains. My mother in law took on the job of recovering it with a lime green polka dotted print and wah-lah it is perfect for rocking Tula Belle!

  2. Love her nursery! Are you having a C-section with Tula? I can't remember if you told me you had one with Ivy or not.

  4. Oh goodness, it's getting so close! Very anxious to hear about the cloth diapers...you're one brave mama! We're getting ready to do some decals in Bailey's room, so I might be asking for tips :)

  5. Just 1 month left, really? It seems like just yesterday you were posting your exciting news. I don't know about you but the planning of my #2 was much more laid back (maybe even too much) than the first. I figured if we had a bed and a carseat, that was good enough. Poor little guy, he's already feeling the effects of being the 2nd child - that doesn't mean he's any less loved though (:

  8. amber- we liked the name tallulah when we were preg w ivy but it was a little too long for our liking. this time around we stumbled on tallulah again, and thought awww if we had a little last name we could use that. then in the other versions of tallulah was the name tula. we immediately both fell in love with it and we were sold that if this babe was a girl that would be her name!
