Hooray! Miss Lucy is going to have a sister.
Since I think of myself as somewhat of an only child (my half brother and sister were in their 30s when I was born) it was a somewhat lonely childhood sometimes, although my parents did their best to make it fun, I longed for a sister. I did notice that as a kid, most of the sisters that I knew fought like cats and dogs, however as an adult I am totally jealous of those sister relationships and how close most of them are.
Take my mother, she is one of nine (yes NINE) children and her sisters are all her best friends (all six of them). They have the best times together and I am so excited for Lucy to have that. Although I'll say right now, there won't be that many brothers and sisters for Lucy!
So we are very excited! Now we just have to think of a name and we're totally stumped. Lucy's name was just so easy because after trying for so long we had argued and vetoed and agreed on the name months in advance. For this little surprise we haven't thought of one name we both like. Not to mention the pregnancy has been so different we were certain it was a boy!
Lucy was so excited to go see the baby at the ultrasound, so she was understandably dissapointed that A.) we were telling her that the baby was this black and white, fuzzy thing on the computer screen and B.) We didn't go and get an actual baby. She was extremely put out. Not to mention she did not like Mommy getting that gel stuff on her stomach, and not being able to lie on the bed with her. So all in all, Lucy was unimpressed with the 18 week ultrasound.
We've decided that we're going to keep the nursery the same for Baby Girl #2. We might buy a new mobile (the cat attacked one of the birds in the mobile and it has been leaking stuffing ever since) and maybe a new rocker as the one that I've used is aproximately 100 years old and incredibly uncomfortable! But bedding, crib, wall art, everything else will stay the same. I'm sure the baby won't mind! Now lucky miss Lucy gets a new room and since she ADORES "diney-soors" we're going to make her a dinosaur themed big girl room!
I was seaching for some decals today and found these on Etsy:
I was thinking of buying two sets so I could get two different colors up on the walls and to keep it somewhat girly I was thinking of choosing Lavendar and Metallic Gold or White to go on the sage green walls we have up there.
She is so excited! This new room is WAY more exciting than the new baby.
So...here we go again! For now I'm destined to be a girl mommy!
"How wide and sweet and wild motherhood and sisterhood can be."
