Classic Winnie the Pooh Nursery Corner

Call me a mama bird and consider me "nested." As I've shared before, the intense desire to make a space for our baby bird surprised me. I'd imagined a classic Winnie the Pooh nursery for quite a few years, wanting those cherished A. A. Milne characters surrounding our baby. Rallying the forces of Pinterest, and Etsy, it's all come together. With crib set up, clothes washed and organized by size, and tiny diapers supplied, we're feeling ready.

I often come in here and try to imagine the living, breathing baby who will sleep here soon. I'll pull out a little newborn onesie and wonder what she'll look like in it. Although I feel her moving inside all day, I don't know it will be really real until we see her. As countless people have told us, our lives will change. We'll get up close and personal with a million diapers. We'll have sleepless nights. We'll make adjustments to how we spend our time. While there's a bit of nervousness for all those changes, I believe it will be worth it. Like the friendliest little bear said, "Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart."

Bring on the heart-takeover.

Heartfelt thanks to family and friends who have showered us and our baby with love. Thank you for the baby showers, the gifts, the notes, well-wishes. We're thankful for your support and look forward to introducing our daughter to you!

Note: While we're 95 percent sure about the name for our girl, we're not officially announcing until we meet her and make sure it fits. But, yes, I couldn't help but get the "L" ready for our little lady.
