It’s Time to Prepare–We’re Expecting a Baby Girl!

Aug 9, 2021

We’re pregnant! Did you see?

After years of not knowing if it would ever happen, we have a baby on the way.

And if you missed our gender reveal on Instagram, we’re having a baby girl! We’re so excited! But, we also have a ton to prepare. We’re first-time parents here with little to nothing for our baby. And we want the best for our baby. THE BEST! Here’s how we’re preparing.

We’re Expecting a Baby Girl

Would that have been your guess? I wasn’t sure what to think, but Scott was set on a girl.

At our 8-week ultrasound, the technician suspected a girl, but said she couldn’t tell for sure. Originally, we thought we would wait until our 20-week ultrasound to find out the gender, but then we decided to do the panarama genetic testing. The email came in, and I could have cried.

Honestly, I’m so happy to have a baby–no matter the gender–coming. Scott and I have waited so long. But having a girl sounds amazing. I know Scott is going to spoil her, and she will have him wrapped around her finger. And now I can’t stop looking at and dreaming of all the cute clothes she will wear and the toys she will play with and the adventures we will go on.

Time to Prepare

As I mentioned, we have almost nothing. I have a few things, very few, that I have saved for our baby: some butterfly dresser nobs, some wood animal decor…. That’s it.

Luckily, we’ve had a few wonderful friends offer items they are no longer using. That is going to help a ton!

What else?

We have a tiny room just for her. We cleaned it out already.

Part of our homestead goals this year is to prepare the nursery. So now it’s operation “turn this little room into a cozy place.” I have plans:

A bit of furniture: Rocking chair, crib, dresser, and side table for the rocking chair.

Theme: Woodland adventures with lots of cute woodland creatures and some adventure quotes.

Colors: Pink and green–’cause I love pink, it’s a girl, and green goes perfectly with pink and the theme.

We already ordered a rug; we got this bohemian beauty in green at 70% off!

It’s a washable rug from Mark and Day, and their clearance sale is still going on! Head over if you’ve been looking for an amazing deal on a washable rug. And by washable I mean you can throw it in your at-home washing machine.

Plus, my mom is embroidering some woodland creatures that I can turn into a cute mobile for baby girl.

What else? We did start a baby registry and have a great wish list of items. And we have a couple baby showers coming up that others have planned for us.

I spend way too much time on shopping apps looking at all the cute baby clothes and things I want to dress baby Comte in. I’m so excited. Can you tell?

Now to bring it all together before baby Comte gets here in just a little over four months.

Looking for Suggestions

We are first-time parents here. We’ve got a plan, as you can see, but we’d love more suggestions. Let me know what your favorite baby items are in the comments below. I’d be much appreciated. You have no idea. Give me all the recommendations, please! 😊
