toddler room haul, owls, birds rice, cute, nursery, decor

 Olivia’s toddler room project.

So as many of you know who follow me on Youtube we have recently moved to a bigger place and Olivia has her very own room now! I am beyond excited to begin decorating my little daughters toddler room. As many of you know I have gone with a owls and birds nature theme for many of her baby items. I have now decided to add a quilted patch work girly floral flare to her room theme as well!

I hope you all are excited to come along on the journey of creating a super sweet and adorable nature inspired toddler girls room for Olivia.

Now lets get started on some of my recent purchases and surprise gift!

etsy shop, custom made letters, Olivia, owl theme, room decor, toddler room, etsy

First and foremost I have a special sneak peak of a very important and precious addition to Olivia’s room. Her very own custom designed wall letters made generously for Olivia by Lindsay who is an etsy shop owner of Lewis&Court. I am so in awe of these beautiful creations! There will be a review and full reveal of all the letters once they are hung to Olivia’s wall. Lindsay has also agreed to a giveaway which there will be more info about that in the coming weeks! Check out Lindsay’s shop she has a lovely assortment of custom made letters to browse through and she is open to special orders. Lindsay is a truly lovely person to come into contact with!

Toddler Room Haul Owls, mushroom pillow, nursery, owls

Two very sweet additions are these adorable pink and polka dotted pillows!

The giant mushroom house is by a line called Room Seven which I got from a shop in Munich ”Engel&Bangel”. The shop is worth a pop inside to browse for unique and lush children products…

Now the Musical Owl which Olivia ADORES I found at a stand in Munich and the owner said its an original so I have no link to share for that.

Those are the newest items I have to share for her nursery but I thought I would show you some delicious toddler eating supplies before I go! 😉

Mushroom toddler plate and fork and spoon set, toddler meals

The four course mushroom toddler meal plate and spoon and fork set is made of a sturdy toxin free plastic. The products are designed in Denmark and made for a fair wage in the third world. The line which the products are from is called ”rice”

Have a peep at their website there are many fun decorative items!

Owl Mug And Floral Plate

The last two fun items is a owl mug which my mother in law gifted to us and another creation by the rice comapany. How lovely is the floral polka dotted bowl? Lovely for a morning porridge!

I do really hope you enjoyed that haul! I will leave you some adorable pictures of Olivia now! She is also excited for mommy to make a nice and safe play environment for her!Read to me

Dont Forget To Watch My Youtube Video Update:

4 weeks pregnant, pregnant belly, second pregnancy, daniellebabybliss, pregnancy blog, pregnancy vlog, danielle zavala

I am so very excited and happy to announce that I am expecting my second baby June 2014! My estimated due date is June 18th! 

 We are so happy and shocked we conceived so quickly. Basically I spontaniously decided to go for it and have un protected sex though I was unsure if we were ready… but ready or not! 😉 For more details on the full story of ttc this baby check out my youtube video where I talk all about it in detail.  But long story short first try BAM here comes baby #2!  😀 😀 😀

I have decided to do the same questionaire I did with Olivia’s pregnancy weekly on my blog and youtube channel!

How far along? 

4 Weeks

Total weight gain:

My pre pregnancy weight from 2 weeks ago is 157 pounds but I lost 3 pounds since then so this week I weigh 154.
Maternity clothes?
 Not yet I have been bloated alot in the evenings but nothing to bad yet 🙂
Sleep:
Sleep has been pretty bad. Between Olivia and I being sick its been rough. I have also noticed very vivid dreams.
Miss anything? 
Not being sick 😉
Food cravings:
Nothing that stands out so far. But I have been really enjoying mushrooms as they are in season and also cashew butter on rice crackers is my new favourite treat!
Anything making you queasy or sick?
Coughing up mucous all day is pretty gross!
Gender?
I think this time I really want to find out like we did last time with Olivia. It was a wonderful experience! To clarify no we have no gender preference that is a very FAQ.
Labor signs?
NO
Symptoms:
SORE nipples and breasts! It was not this bad this early with Olivia maybe its because I am breastfeeding still. Nursing is challenging every day it gets more painful. I am also tired but I cant tell if its because of the pregnancy or the flu. Sometimes my tummy feels a bit upset as well. I have already started noticing the round ligament pain this is happening WAY earlier than it did with Olivia also!
Happy or moody most of the time?
Though iv been sick I have been in such a great mood I am so excited!
Looking forward to:
Feeling 100 % healthy again and the weekend!

Mid wife appt update:
Everything is looking great! blood pressure is great, urine is clean, vaginal ph is good.
AND Olivia is HEAD DOWN like I thought! her head is engaged deep in my pelvis! so shes in perfect position, my mid wife thinks since her head is so deep & engaged shes not flipping any more YAY I sure hope so! she deffo hasnt been flipping in a while I noticed. Mid wife also remarked she thinks Olivia is pretty big, it was super easy for her to figure out the position. Olivias heart was beating a 165 BPM and she was sure to show the mid wife some of her cool moves! :p I now see my mid wife every 2 weeks and Friday the 27th we are going for our hospital registration to discuss our birth plan and we will see olivia in a ultrasound! so exciting! getting close! also i have gained 25 pounds so far. mid wife says im looking great and will probably gain another 5 before shes born which is good 😀

 Symptoms: Well there’s quite a few actually! Firstly I have started experiencing some lower back pain. It is not constant but if I am out in town a long time it will ache a bit.  I have been doing lots of pelvic tucks and using my birthing ball loads to help with the back pain, but its really not that bad or all that often. Iv been alot more snappy especially when I am uncomfortable I get irritated easily.  Braxton Hicks. My braxton hicks contractions have been a little more frequent I get them anywhere from 5 to 7 times everyday all at random times. I also am experiencing a little bit more pressure on my pelvis but its only sometimes. 
Belly button in or out? 50% 50%

 Best Moment of the week? Going Blueberry picking was amazing. There is this little place about a 25 minute walk from our house in the fields where you can go blueberry picking and there is a little mini farm where you can buy cakes and there are beds to eat outside and pigs and goats and a corn maze. Its amazing I will have to film a video there. I cant wait to bring Olivia one day!
Looking Forward to: I have got lots to look forward too! I am looking forward to my midwife’s appt this wednesday! I love seeing her and Im eager to know what position olivia is in. Also our stroller could be here any day now, we ordered it a month ago and they said it could arrive 4 to 6 weeks after we purchased it so hopefully SOON! I am also looking forward to getting the nursery done!
