Added bonus, I got my blowing glitter snapshot to top off the weekend.

We had a great scan on Friday. It started out a little choppy as baby wasn't cooperating with the tech when she went to go look at her bits and pieces. We thought we might have to come back in a few weeks for another look but somehow she got what she needed and we were off with a sealed envelope.

I thought about taking it to the Brooklyn Bridge or somewhere iconic to open it but Friday was rainy so we played it by ear and opened it at dinner instead. My sister in law thought to get some pink and blue cocktails to celebrate the big reveal.

Even though I was totally rooting for a girl, I just happened to have a boy nursery all planned out in my head with nothing for a girl. So I need to think on it a bit before I start putting my ideas together. Anyone see any fab girl nurserys lately?

  3. CONGRATULATIONS...!!! And for once I was right, a girl. Ok, so I picked girl because my oldest daughter's birthday is Dec. 29.......that's not really cheating, is it? Anyway I'm thrilled for you both.

    Love baby girls!  Course I have two so am biased :)  Very fun glitter shot.  Congrats!  It's been all over blogland lately but have you seen the white nursery with gorgeous brass pendant at Me Oh My?  That's me fave nursery I've seen lately.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh I hadn't seen that before - definitely gorgeous.  I love all white rooms but Im not disciplined enough to live like that :)

  13. Thanks Caitlin.  Its funny to say this because its my blog but I do feel a little guilty going overboard with baby related posts. In one way I can't help it because I blog about my life and thats whats going on in my life right now but Im trying not to bore everyone out of the minds.  Good to know some readers are happy to hear about the process and not just the end result.

    Aww! Congratulations!! :)
    I LOVE your glitter shot! Very cute idea!
    And I'm excited to see the nursery. Even though you've planned the nursery for a boy, I'm sure it's going to look amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Congrats!! I was in the same boat as you -- I really wanted a girl but had the name and nursery all planned out for a boy. So when we found out it was a girl it was like "what now?!" I'm due in 3 weeks and am so excited about how her nursery is turning out (we decided to go with gray and pink). I'm hoping to post a reveal within the next week -- hope you'll stop by! And please do keep us updated with all nursery developments, I don't think anyone would consider that boring or "baby overload." I'm just the opposite -- those posts are most exciting to me (even when I wasn't pregnant)!

    Congrats!  Great pics.

    ReplyDelete
  23. CONGRATS!!! I was positive I was having a boy and with a strong desire to nest, we started the nursery before finding out the sex. I stayed up all night perfecting mood boards and browsing http://www.zacandzoe.com/.  Never a fan of pastels, we used bold colors so when we discovered we were having a girl, it was easy to add feminine accents *the bird motif is subtle in her nursery* Let me just say, Girls are awesome. We feel like we have the best of both worlds because Olivia goes to ballet, plays soccer and rocks out on her ukulele. So here's Liv's nursery *which took 5 months to complete and is in a tiny 10 x 10 room shared with her Dad's office*

    I was the opposite, I knew I wanted to do a very similar nursery as this one, but it turns out I'm having a boy. If it's not too weird, I'd love to hear what you were thinking for a boy nursery. I'm really struggling.

    Congrats!!! With your style, you'll create a beautiful nest for the little one!

    Now if I might ask what may seem a ridiculous question - can you share camera settings and lens info on how you achieved the glitter shot?? Would like to do something similar of my granddaughter for a Christmas photo but am clueless how to do it.

    Many thanks for any help you can give.

    Ciao,

  67. Congratulations!!!  I'm a new reader of your blog and was pointed to your blog by my mother, as I'm also due right around you, Christmas Day, with my first, a little girl of my own... Can't wait to see what you come up with for you little one, I'm a firm believer that a girl will be way more fun to plan for.

  71. Hi Dee.  Since I wasn't behind the camera (hubs was at the controls), I had my camera set to P mode since that was easiest for him and set up on a tripod.  I used my zoom lens and had it fully zoomed (which helps create the blurred background but I was far enough away from what you see here that it would have been blurred regardless).  We were outside so we used natural light and no additional flash. I waited til the sun was setting so the light would hit at the side rather than from above.  Focus was at the center of the frame. Depending upon your lighting situation you might want to overexpose a bit to get more of a bright look. You could do this with virtually any camera although using an SLR will be easier since you dont have to account for shutter lag. The trick is taking lots of images so you get ones with eyes open and in focus.  I took at least 50 to get just a few good ones. As it turns out, I'm not very masterful at blowing glitter so my husband blew some back at me to create more sparkle to fill the frame.  Hope that helps!
