Our Big Little News

Well I certainly thinks this counts as the biggest DIY project we've ever worked on!




17 years together, 38 countries visited and 993 blog posts later, Baby Limestone is expected to make it's big debut this December.

I'm coming up on 14 weeks and its been quite an emotional and physical roller coaster. All to be expected but certainly turning our lives upside down already. Now that we have made it through the first trimester, I've made a promise to myself that I'm going to start focusing on the fun stuff and put all the scary stuff out of my mind. (Up until now I haven't even been able to write even a sentence in a journal or even think about nursery colors.)



I hope you'll like hearing all about nursery planning, memory keeping and other bundles of joy here. I promise to keep the less than adorable stuff to a minimum.

  33. Thanks Sara. The ultimate irony is that our baby is due Christmas week which would make any big birthday parties pretty impossible.  Poor kid will never get a proper blow out.  Oh well, thats the way the cookie crumbles :)

  57. Lauren @ chezerbey11:10 AM

    Yay! Congratulations! I remember the nervousness of that first trimester, but finally being able to tell everyone definitely made it feel more real. Of course, the worrying never completely goes away as there's always that next milestone or ultrasound to focus on...but my advice is to allow yourself to enjoy the ride and be excited! (At 35 weeks, I still have to tell myself that!) Can't wait for all the upcoming baby/nursery posts!

That's what grandparents are for! :) Hope you're feeling well, and looking forward to following along!!

  83. Congratulations! I've been following your blog for a long time and looking forward to following you now during this exciting time, especially since I'm due with my first 12/25. I too feel terrible that their birthday will be around Christmas, I"m hoping the baby will be early, so maybe they're at least still in school.

  85. Congratulations!  I'm so excited for you!  I'm still new to it (10 months so far), but being a mom is the scariest and most rewarding "project" I've ever been part of--you're going to love it (not every sleepless moment, mind you, but overall).  You and Mr. Limestone have collected a wealth of experience over the years that I know you'll love sharing with Baby Limestone.  Cheers!

  90. Im hoping it can be a little late (i say that now, im sure ill curse myself come december) so we can at least get to the first week in Jan.  Still not ideal but at least 2 weeks from Christmas is better than that week.  But either way, I'm not going to get too worked up about it.

  91. Easier said than done.  Im one of those people that would rather know than stay in the dark (even if it makes me crazy)

  92. Well you must be psychic b/c even I didn't know back then.  I honestly just thought the sign was funny.

  93. Well we don't have the kind of parents that would be able to watch our baby so he/she will just have to come with us!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Thanks!  I feel like most of my friends didn't have the same kind of worries about something being wrong as I have had. But Im just more of a worried/nervous personality.  Its good to know I'm not the only one :)

  98. ramblingrenovators2:08 PM

    So very happy for you Stefanie & Mr. Limestone! My brother was born on Dec.29 and yes, as a youngster he got a bit of a raw deal when it came to birthday attention. But last year, I threw a Pancakes and Pajamas birthday party a few weeks before the holidays and found it was a great way to spend time with just our immediate family and celebrate my baby bro (yes, he's 30 and I still call him baby bro). I'm sure you'll find a way to make your little one's day special, no matter when he or she arrives.

    Looking forward to all the DIY & decorating goodness to come. These babies have a way of pressuring you to get all the home projects done!

  104. CongratULATIONS!!!!  I took four pregnancy tests and then went to the doc's office to ask for a "real" pregnancy test but the doctor asked me, "How many tests did you take?" I said, "Four." "Were they all positive?" "Yes." "Congratulations. You're pregnant." Ha! He said the test wasn't necessary. And he's right... I have a babe sleeping upstairs right now ;-) Again, congratulations!!!

    ReplyDelete
  105. Congratulations!!! So excited to follow your baby related posts! Not that you are asking my opinion, but my vote is for the small room until baby is ready for a "big boy/girl bed". Only because it allows you to have a nicer guest room for a longer stretch of time.  Hopefully you will have some visitors (friends/relatives) around to share the special time with.  You will want them to be comfy so they stick around longer! I have a 2 yo and a 10 mo, they both like cozy sleeping spaces.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Ha.  My doctor didn't test me either after I told him how many test I took (and he stopped laughing!)

  114.  I agree. If you use the small room and later want to move him/her to the guest room, you will be able to redecorate the guest room without disruption.

I wish I had embraced the time more and hope that you will for you!

    Thanks for sharing parts of this wild ride with us!  ::crossing my fingers that you'll share every last detail you feel comfortable sharing::  Happy & healthy months ahead to you!!

    P.S. Mr FC & I had been together for 12 yrs by the time Quinn made her arrival.  I will never forget those memories as a twosome (threesome counting our pooch)......but now there's a different, more divine layer of meaning behind our memories.

  135. Mid-winter birthdays are kinda tough and you have to make an extra, conscious effort to keep them separate. My birthday is Jan 4 and my sister's birthday is Dec 10. As kids, neither of us really got the kind of birthday attention that
    our brothers (who were born in the summer) were able to snag.

    We sometimes compare notes and try to decide who has the worse birthday timing. We decided that earlier is only slightly better than later.  Her birthday is a bit overshadowed by both Thanksgiving and Christmas, but people are ramping up for the holidays during her birthday so everyone is in a festive mood. My birthday feels more separate from the holidays, but by the time it rolls around, a lot of people are burnt out on parties, hungover, and/or ready for a bit of hibernation.

  154. BTW my girls birthdays are Dec. 29 and Dec. 31. I always kept their birthdays seperate from Christmas because after all their birthday's are special too. The biggest problem was money and being exhausted by then.

    Yay!!!  I'm very excited for you!  I am currently 19 weeks preggers (Due 11/18) and have been reading your blog for a while.  Love your home and all your inspirational projects!!  I also have the travel bug and I would have to say for me, it's the only bummer.  I guess I'll be staying a lot closer to home for a few years.  And I'm so happy you made it through the first trimester!  It was tough for me to keep it a secret and of course, every little thing had me worried! 
    CONGRATS!!!!!!

    Congrats!!!

    Not that you want my opinion, but you could put baby in guest room, move guest room to your office, and then put your office in box room/ basement. It seems like a long term option.

    Congratulations to you two :)! I'm fairly new to the design blog world, but I've found your projects, photos, and links to be so beautiful and inspiring over the last 6 months. I'm sure you're hearing plenty of this already, but when I was prego with my daughter 4 years ago, she was a 'surprise' and came when we weren't ready at all, and I was terrified and distraught beyond description. Things only got better and better, and she is life's greatest joy to me. I'm wishing you all the best with this pregnancy and that peace has a way of coming over and resting with you.

    Congratulations!!! Wonderful news.
    Can't wait to see photos of the baby's space.

  161. Thanks for reading Laurel.  I think I might have confused everyone with the photos of the multiple tests though.  I didn't take lots of tests because I couldn't believe I was pregnant but rather I was making sure it was sticking around.  We were trying for him or her.

  162. We planned this so we sort of knew we'd have to curtail our travel a bit.  That said, we are still taking a few trips this year.  I would have really loved to go back to Thailand for my 35th birthday in October but despite my doctor saying it would be fine, I'm worried I couldn't relax.  So we're leaving the exotic stuff off the table for a little while.  Who knows what will happen once the baby is here but I'm hoping we can turn him/her into a master traveler too.

  163. Thanks Naz.  Im not so worried about what we do as a family but more sad that a Christmas baby never really gets a proper super fun birthday party.  Its hardly anything to be that upset about but you know how I love a party.  But really just such a minor thing.

  164. Thanks.  No bump (other than the one I already had from being fat) yet.  Once I get nice and round, I'll share some photos.

  165. Oh I had no idea thats what you did for a living.  (I just assumed you were in the design world).  Thanks so much for the offer.  At this point I don't even know what I don't know :)

  166. Thanks FC.  Its good to hear other long term couples with similar stories.  I sometimes feel like we are the only people on earth who intentionally waited til we were older and felt ready.

    Since we've found out, we've been to Hawaii and Vegas.  I'll be going to DC this July and then hope to hit Victoria & Vancouver BC.  Still trying to travel but keeping pretty close to home.  I grew up traveling with my parents and absolutely loved it.  I feel like it gave me such an appreciation for diversity and made me a more adaptable person.  I hope you can travel loads with your little one and show him/her the world! 

    Looking forward to see what you do with a nursery!!

    Congratulations! This is indeed exciting and challenging time in a woman's life. Our second baby boy was due December 28th too but he joined us 2 weeks early. Take care of yourself...motherhood is a fun, at times scary but the most amazing experience.
