Baby Lovett is A…

This weekend I revealed the gender of our baby to family and friends at my baby shower. Other than immediate family, no one really knew the sex and it turned out to be a fun way to keep my friends and cousins on their toes.

Of course everyone has their theories. Like, you’ve been craving sweets so it’s a boy. Or, you conceived on a full moon so it’s a girl. I just made that one up.

But yeah, people take one look at your stomach and suddenly they think they have x-ray vision. They knnooow.

Me? I just go on instincts. I was right about my nephew so I was one-for-one and thought I was on a roll. I was so certain TH and I were having a girl I was ready to tell the ultrasound technician, I know, when gender was revealed. Instead I couldn’t help but utter, really? When he told us…


I was totally surprised, which was actually nice because that’s rare.

But what about my motherly instincts, I couldn’t help but think? Is there such a thing as fatherly instincts because TH was right. He called it and any time he’d say it was a boy, I’d roll my eyes.

I was already starting to scheme out a nursery for a girl. I was clueless as to what to do with a boy’s room.

But slowly the wheels starting turning and now I can’t even picture us starting with a girl. And if we have a girl next, well then she better like blue because they’ll most likely be sharing a room.

He’s an idea of the route I’m taking.

I wanted something kid appropriate but nothing too babyish. Something to grow into, if you will.

I first saw this wallpaper in our hotel room at the Soho Grand in New York a few years ago and when I was reunited with it, I knew it was the right choice. It’s a bunch of birds and serves as sort of a nod to the fact that my mother-in-law still calls TH baby bird.


Wallpaper, blinds and built-in are up but for the most part, room is still pretty much full of things that need to be organized and furniture-less, most of which should be coming in this week.

I’m hoping to have it complete by mid October. It’ll be nice bringing baby home to a finished room.


There’s Nora being dramatic.

It’s getting there though.

Happy Tuesday!
