We found out the gender of the baby, just a week before Thanksgiving. Now that my family knows, I can share the news with everyone else!

 We have a little man on the way!! Here are a few pics...

It's a boy! His bottom is to the left, boy parts right next to the "y"

We're all absolutely thrilled. Pj is a little brother so I think he's excited that Olivia will have a little brother of her own very soon (I'm due April 26th)! For Christmas, we picked up a baby doll set with a stroller, diaper bag and bottle for Olivia. When my sister was born, I had a similar baby with accessories and I really loved it. Olivia is already carrying her other baby dolls around and feeding them plastic bottles. I think she will be a great help to me and a wonderful big sister!

Now that we know the gender, I'm getting all excited planning the nursery decor. I had so much fun decorating and sewing for Olivia's nursery but this time, it will be in our own home and we get to paint!!!
Like Olivia's nursery, I wanted a theme that would grow with the kid, at least for a little while. I also wanted something soothing for our little dude so I picked a nautical theme.

 The carpet in the new nursery is an orange color and as much as I would love to replace it,fencing in the back yard is my top priority, so we're going to work with it! We're painting the room blue and white and decorating with shades of blue, white and an orange-red accent to bring in the funky color of the carpet. I love the look of this dark blue with white but I think we're going to go with something a smidge lighter than navy.

As usual, I'm hunting around thrift stores for furniture such as a chest of drawers, a small book shelf and things like that. We're using the changing table that Pj built for Olivia and I picked out a convertible crib with no movable parts by Baby Mod, similar to Olivia's crib.

I sewed all of Olivia's bedding, using fabrics designed by Heather Ross so I will probably sew everything  for this baby as well. I haven't settled on anything yet, but here are a few fabrics that I am totally loving!

I love the whales but the sharp teeth is kind of scary!

Japanese import sailor print fabric- too cute for words!

I am SO sad that Target isn't carrying the Me and the Sea bedding anymore. I really wanted to grab a pair of those adorable sheets and re-purpose them. Maybe they'll bring them back (*please, oh, please!!*)

I found a few more super cute little things .....
