Smelling The Roses...

Obviously, I've been really tied up with a lot of stuff at work and at home for the past few months that I neglected my blog already :o(

Well, I'm exhausted... and today, I decided to just stop and not think of anything else, let my brain to slow down a bit.

I thought I'd bond with my baby as I sit on the glider and gently rocked myself and my big belly. I was staring at the entire room, my my my... I guess we've come far along to get the nursery ready for our Anikka.


I looked around while I tried to remember what the room used to look like... and then I saw this...


It hit me to the core... that the only one missing is a baby in the crib. That in about 5 weeks from now, she's going to lie down here wrapped with this soft, warm, swaddler...

Wow, I'm going to be a mom in a few weeks - the most selfless "profession" in the entire world!!! Exciting but very overwhelming at the same time...

Thank God, I was able to savor this short "pause time" and recon how lucky I am that I have everything else that I need... it's just so worth it to slow down and smell the roses at times...

ganda ng nursery ni annika =D. talgang labor of love. kami, nd ko sure when matatapos, we've only started! i made a related entry in my blog.

enjoy the last 5 weeks. sleepless nights will follow, but im sure it'll all be worth it =D

berns, had to ask pala where you got the beddings of anikka. we're eyeing the same baby cot, but totally clueless as to where to get the beddings that would fit. thanks so much!

hi gracie dearie! thanks sis! took us about 4 months to get everything together for the nursery, aheee :o)

oo nga 5weeks to go, super lapit na nya talga. but i always talk to anikka na hopefully, she would stay inside me until her 40th week and sana wag ako parihapan na matagal ang labor, hahah. i have a gut feeling she's listening naman :o)

oh btw, regarding the beddings. we got it from babysupermall.com. they have tons of stuff in there kaya medyo overwhelming when you choose. i believe they ship outside the US as well, so check it out. don't get anything below $120 kasi we noticed that yung mga beddings below that price medyo matigas na. i personally love these 2 brands: cocalo and lambs & ivy. the one we got is lambs & ivy. super soft nya and comfy.

if you have any questions, drop me an email. i would love to share tips with you :o) tc sis and enjoy your pregnancy :o)

hi che! yep, super lapit na talga. im still trying to condition myself na wag matakot sa labor. or else baka mag panic ako and end up not being able to relax... which means i wouldn't be able to get her out easily. yaw ko mag C-section, haha. mas takot ako dun.

thanks for appreciating our nursery :o) about 3-4 months in the making yun, hahah.

will check your blog sis. don't stress too much on it as much as i did. basta as long as you're having fun doing it, that's what matters. pag na stress na, then there's no point.

anyhoo, you tc and enjoy your baby :o)

tc sis.
