Making Room For Baby!

 Hello again!

Life has been a little crazy since the last time I added anything to this blog so I'm sorry for the huge gap in time...

Our business has grown & we've added so many schools to the calendar that honestly, I've even had to turn a few jobs away.  I never dreamed when I started on this journey that it would grow so fast - I am SO blessed!

The biggest change & blessing though would be that our family grew as well, adding this amazing little human we call Dex to the mix in January!  I will post some pics of his cuteness soon but first I'm excited to show you his room that I finally finished today!

The first step was putting a much smaller bed in the room since this will room will also need to double as a guest room for now.  Everything robot in this corner actually came from our baby showers :)  We were lucky enough to have 2 of them this time around - one with a few close friends & another with our new friends @ Zack's co-op!

A mobile was really the only thing I knew for sure that I wanted to make for him since I had made one for Zack.  We went all out for Zack's room but this time around I found myself with a lot less time, energy, budget & for most of my pregnancy, I believed that we would be moving soon after he was born so I wasn't sure there was much point...

So I seriously did NOTHING until about a month before he arrived & then decided to see what I could come up with.  Luckily, I had leftover felt from other projects so it ended up costing me nothing & actually came together pretty quickly!

For the next project, I fell in love with a book that my friend found named Boy + Bot & really wanted to incorporate it somehow but didn't want to ruin the book or make it so I couldn't actually read it to him so... I decided to make some copies instead & I am loving how it turned out!  The other picture above the crib is something that another friend of ours bought for Zack to color so he got to have his little part in the room as well :)

 Next is my favorite project that was a last minute idea that popped into my head.  We had this HUGE corkboard in that room already from when it used to be my office & when we took it down off the wall, I really had no idea what to do with it.  And then I leaned it up against the wall on it's side & it started to look different.... I found a smaller corkboard that we also had no use for & a robot was born! lol

 I did have to buy the chalboard paint, square shelves & baskets for this project but I think it was worth it since that wall looked so empty before... not to mention the best part that the boys will have another activity in that room as well!

So, I'm excited to say that I can finally mark this off my to-do list!  

It may not have an awesome mural like Zack's room (check that out here if you want!) but I'm still loving how it turned out & hopefully Dexter will feel the same - once he actually knows whats going on - lol :)

Sarah, you by far have achieved the motherhood award! You are so creative, loving, caring, amazing...I could really go on forever!! Your Dexter is a very lucky boy as well as Zach. They both have the best parents anyone could dream for. I only wish I could have done as great of a job as you and Ron have. You both blow my mind. I love you both and thank you from my soul for everything that you have done for us. You my friend are amazing!! <3
