Designer Room – Butterfly Boudior

A little girl’s room can be a magical space, especially with shades of pinks and yellows and delicate butterflies dancing all over the place. This room is anchored by a sweet sleigh daybed, girly butterfly bedding and a soft shaggy raggy rug in yellow. The Oopsy Daisy Baby butterfly prints tie the whole room together with an abstract artistic touch. And our lighting options add delicate flowers and beauty to her garden of flutters.

Pantone 2012 Color of the Year: Tangerine Tango

Recently announced by Pantone, the 2012 color of the year, Tangerine Tango. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Institute tells us more about the choice for 2012:

Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it. Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.

5 Pregnancy Fears

Today marks 19 weeks in my journey to motherhood. In exactly one week I will be at the halfway point of pregnancy and having my 20 week ultrasound where my baby’s gender will be no longer a mystery and I will get to see their sweet face for one last time until May (provided no complications arise). While this time is a very joyous one for me and my family, it is also one of fears and uncertainty. Below I will share my top five fears on this journey.

5. Breastfeeding. What if I can’t? What if it is too painful? What if the baby simply will not latch on? This could be a huge deciding factor on the health of my dear babe and I do not know what exactly to expect or even how to prepare for it. I trust my body is doing its part though, at least my new cup-size is telling me so.

4. A Strangers Touch. While watching last week’s Office, I could totally relate to the t-shirt Ryan and Kelly bought for Angela that read “Ask, Then Touch.” I’ve had a couple encounters with belly fondling so far, and it is shocking, and uncomfortable. I hope boundaries are more common once the protective layer of belly is no longer shielding my wee one.

3. Body Changes.
Speaking of my new cup-size, what happens when all the milk is drained from my once previously perky parts? (WAIT, DON’T ANSWER THAT!!) We all know there are changes that happen when a woman becomes a mother, that will forever leave their mark on their bodies. I’m just hoping mine aren’t stretch marks and a triple chin.

2. Dropping/Hurting the Baby. I am a klutz by nature, not coordinated at all. I have the bruises to prove it. I’m constantly knocking into things, dropping things, and tripping over my own feet (especially now that I can’t see them). But what happens when I have an uh-oh moment with a tiny person? Let’s hope there isn’t permanent damage. Hey! Maybe that is how I became a klutz in the first place?

1. Giving Birth. I am not only a huge klutz, but also a huge wimp! I’ve been known to cry over a menstrual cramp, so how will I ever find the strength to have a natural birth? Yes it has been done since life existed, and yes I am created as a woman to handle this, but that doesn’t mean the thought doesn’t scare me to pieces.

I’m sure I could make a list of 100 (or maybe 1,000) fears, but this pretty much sums up the top fears at the moment. I can effortlessly put together the nursery, but I still can’t figure out how to solve these fears. Any Mom’s or Mom’s-to-be with similar fears? Is there something more terrifying that I haven’t thought of? Any advice to calm those nerves? Or keep away the strangers wanting to rub your belly?

I would love to hear from you!
