Girl = Pink?

I love pink just as much as the next gal. Seriously, I do! But my baby girl's outfits, blankets, or room decor will not be limited to the color pink. First of all, we'd love to reuse decor for baby #2 and secondly, I'm a girl and I like other colors. Won't she? Just sayin'! (And yes, I do realize that my blog color scheme is pink and black ... I do still like pink. This isn't a ban against all pink, it's a welcome for other colors as well!)

Hopefully I'll have pics of the nursery (green and brown) to post soon, but for now here's a picture of the bedding and theme I chose: (Picture from NOT our actual nursery)

Say Goodbye, Say Hello

We're so excited about our move to Hardin; everything has been WONDERFUL so far. We love the church family here, the small town life, and the proximity to my parents!

But, I do have to admit, I'm super bummed about leaving our loving little birth center in Madisonville behind. Hopefully, we'll still be able to follow through with our plans for a natural birth, even though we'll be in a hospital setting.

At least we'll still get to be under the care of a midwife (Candy, who I already LOVE!) And, we're also seriously thinking about hiring a doula to be a support during the labor process (perhaps more for Daniel's sake than for mine!) I know everything will work out!

Goodbye Women's Wellness & Maternity Center...

One of the rooms where I would have possibly given birth:

Hello Jackson Purchase Medical Center and Candy Riehl, CNM!

One of the L&D rooms at Jackson Purchase... Not too hospital-y... I think it'll do!
