This weekend was my baby girl’s “babyborrel” (which literally means “baby’s drink” in Dutch). Merel threw her first party so she could meet all mommy and daddy’s family and friends. Isn’t she a sweetie 😉
Off course Mom was in charge of decorations so during Merel’s oh so spare nap time, I made some paper tissue pom poms from scratch. These are to be honest, ridiculously easy to do. You can find a very handy DIY video tutorial over here.
So yesterday I was wondering what I should do with the remaining pom poms. A few where already donated to eager nieces but I still had some left and I’m not the kinda gal to throw away much (a.k.a. I’m a hoarder). So since officially there Merel’s poms I decided to decorate her playpen with them. I also added some bunting to make sure we don’t forget whose crib it is 😉
And off course afterwards I couldn’t resist to check Pinterest for even more nursery pom pom ideas. And I found much more inspiration if I want to take this paper pom pom idea up a notch!
Well here she is, my beautiful baby girl Merel.
My life has improved so much since she became part of it. I love being a mother but, allow me a confession, I never thought taking care of a tiny weensy baby could be so much work! Sure I realized she would change everything but to be honest not quite so drastically! I always thought I would still have a little time for myself throughout the day while she was napping. Well turns out little Merel isn’t such a big sleeper… Can’t really blame her since her mother apparently was the same 🙂 And she’s also got a big appetite, just like her daddy, so there is not much rest for the weary new mommy 🙂
So therefor I already apologize for the lack of posts. I hope it will improve soon once we have a bit more of a rhythm going on. But to be honest at this moment family comes first… Thanks for understanding!
I have a confession to make. I’ve been keeping a secret from you my dear readers. And it’s a big life changing one. So let me come clean and let tell you the happy news: this June me and the hubby will become first time parents. Our darling firstborn is on it’s way! So expect a lot more nursery posts in the near future!
When our 1st wedding anniversary came along it tought it would be a nice present for both my hubby and myself to get our wedding posted on a great blog. Well it took a bit longer but I’m so happy to got featured on Beyond & Beyond!
I’ll give you already a sneak peak and you can see much more over here. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did…
Ideal if, just like me, you’re not quite ready for a real tattoo. That doesn’t stop me from dreaming… maybe one day I’ll be tough enough to permanently wear one of these beauties.
