My 2nd daughter was born 5 months ago and while it is more chaos as you say, the love that it brings–from spouse to siblings–is amazing.
I love the burning fire in front of the teepee– did you make that?! Awesome!

Can you tell me where you found your storage bench for the entry way? We’re having trouble finding one that’s not too deep! Many thanks…

I was on bed rest with all four of my kids, and all I can say is hang in there. Soon it will all be a memory, and you’ll have your healthy little girl. And don’t be too eager to move around at 34 weeks. I did, my water broke, and my little girl was in the NICU for two weeks. Time in bed always trumps time in the NICU.

Give your son lots of snuggles, read lots of books, and watch all the period dramas you can find on Netflix. :)

Could you tell me where the green and white paper in the back of your hutch came from? I LOVE it!

Lots to love about this home. Thanks for sharing!

Linda, best wishes for a healthy baby girl. I’m glad to see someone else aiming for a shared kids room…we also have an almost four-year-old and a baby due in May!

It must be so trying to just lay there. I recall after the birth of my daughter, I was unable to walk for approx. 1 month (pubis synthesis-ouch!) and all I wanted to do was weird and ordinary things like iron, sweep, wash dishes, make supper…all the things we [I] typically grump about. Although that was a rough and scary time in my life, it’s a chapter that I am glad happened. It gave me an entirely different perspective on many things and it allowed for an appreciation of the simplicity and wonderfulness of everyday things that when all put together make our lives extraordinary. I know this sounds a bit strange, but try to enjoy the stillness as you anticipate the birth of your daughter. Take this time to conjure ideas about all the wonderful things you will be able to do as a family of four! After I was feeling better, our first outing was to the beach! Daydream about simple pleasures and may that bring you sustenance in the next few weeks!
You have a beautiful and meticulous home. I love the green wallpaper (??) in the hutch. Stunning!

By the end I only fit in an old nightgown of my mom’s-and I willow a hole in it-but it all worked out. My babies were big and I had to be induced if you can believe it! Sending good thoughts to you and your little girl!

Hang in there, Momma! This will someday be a distant memory, and you’ll have a beautiful daughter to show for it!

I love the old dressers with the fun, colorful hardware (that I’m guessing you redid?), the old seed company boxes, and all your antique, blue glass.

I love the line about making work a family affair, and how you’ve obviously made your son the priority. You’re doing a good work :).

Linda, I am sending you good “stay put” vibes for that little one! I’m also due in May so I will be 34 weeks on Wednesday.

Here’s to happy healthy girls!

I love the zig zag blue and white rug in the second to last picture. Would you mind sharing more about it?

Thank you! Lovely home!
Abby

As one of my Irish friends put it, “Women are always in such a hurry.” :) Your daughter can’t wait to come out and see all the beautiful, bright colors of her home! I was on modified bedrest with my second. Everything will be ok especially because you are already at 34 weeks! :)
