Weekending + Pink Paint

Ah, the weekend. Two more left before baby girl arrives! And we are in HUSTLE mode.
Our weekend was made up of lots of projects around the house, sorting through newborn things that have been packed away & preparing for the return of never ending baby bottle washing. Bedtime couch snuggles & early morning hammock swinging. Painting the nursery PINK & joking about how we may have just jinxed ourselves into this one ending up a boy. A kid free night out filled with nachos and good rock & roll, Boston + Kansas at our favorite outdoor concert venue. A quick dip in the pool & homemade pineapple popsicles. More painting & furniture rearranging. And a Sunday night Netflix marathon, late night bowls of cereal & endless entertainment watching our two crazy girls on the baby monitor while they went to sleep together in the same room.
Hands full, hearts full.

Hope you all had an amazing weekend! XO

    I'm not going to lie, I was pretty skeptical when I saw that pink paint colour on Instagram but it looks great!! Love what you did to that dresser too. We just bought a dresser to redo for our little one coming this fall and I can't wait to find out what we're having so I can get started!

    Girl, skip the bottles and let that baby nurse, nurse, nurse! Bottle washing is for the birds.

    Reading "Hands full, hearts full" legit gave me chills, I love that.I have one, but we've decided to not start trying, but stop NOT trying, if that makes sense. Ugh babies.

    Sounds like a wonderful weekend! I really like that shade of pink in the nursery too, girly but not an obnoxious "in your face" type of pink. Very pretty πŸ™‚

    My sister just had her 2nd girl in April after the doctors told her she was having a boy and the nursery was all finished in brown, navy and red trains… surprise!! (Although they told her very early on and then couldn't tell if she was a boy or girl in the following u/s so she maybe should have waited to do the nursery). Good luck with baby girl #3!!

    i love the colour of your nursery. We are not finding out the gender this time around, so we are going neutral for the paint, and I'm hoping to find some cute accents after baby is born!

    I really like your glider/rocker. I actually wanted one similar to that, but ended up getting something completely different.

    Agree ^^^ while it doesn't always work out for all mamas, I loved nursing. No mixing, warming, testing, washing… It actually saved me so much time. πŸ’— hugs!!

    One day I'm going to be blessed with a full house..but for now it's infertility and adoption. Regardless I am so happy for growing families no matter how it happens!

    Hi! Totally not trying to butt in here, just thought I'd mention that she has blogged about the fact that she's had trouble breastfeeding in the past and she needs to use her pump quite often, hence the many bottles and tiny pieces she needs to use. I've been there- it's a lot of work but so worth it to still get that breast milk to the baby! πŸ™‚

    Oh I know, I've read for a while! More nursing means less pumping though, and therefore less bottle washing. Trouble breastfeeding in the past does not mean trouble breastfeeding in the future! Just trying to be encouraging!

    Yes, I have been reading this blog for years and recall that. There are plenty of options and support/ resources to help with supply and feeding issues. Colleen is right on point about pumping & nursing. It is not always easy to nurse, but as mentioned, it is definitely possible, even with previous issues. Just trying to offer positive reassurance πŸ’•πŸ’—

    Oops sorry, just trying to be helpful with the info. It didn't sound like ya'll knew she's had previous trouble. I had trouble with 2 babies and pumping was definitely a lifesaver for me! Surely she appreciated the words of encouragement. πŸ™‚
