Look Ma! I’m an Artist!

21 Apr

I absolutely loved my pregnancy.  LOVED it.  I know this sounds crazy (most women would tell you “OMG I was miserable – I couldn’t wait for it to be over etc”   and at times I was uncomfortable, but for the most part I was lucky because it was great), but I had such a FUN time being pregnant.  My little girl was super active and kicked SO much.  I tell everyone I would have gotten pregnant again the day I gave birth if I could have.  I know every pregnancy is different, but my experiences the first time around have made me want to have another.  My little girl was my first baby and she is about the best baby anyone could ask for. Babies are so addictive. With all that said, my next child will be Lucifer, NO DOUBT.  I’m preparing myself now.

Now, one thing that pretty much everyone knows about me is that pink and glitter go together like PB&J for me. When I found out I was having a little girl I was SO excited to buy ALL the things for the nursery that I always wanted for my own room.  Pink, glitter, sequins, pink fur rugs and boas… all of it.

Around my 7 ½ month of pregnancy, my doctor ordered that I stay home as much as possible to reduce stress and bring my blood pressure down.  It was the most AWESOME last month of pregnancy EVER.  (I know this was my first pregnancy.. but seriously, I had SO much fun)  The doctor told me that I should relax, no kids to be responsible for, watch movies, hang out with the dogs, snooze with the dogs, hang out with the husband, go get pedicures (eesh…. More on that later…), read my People magazines, sleep in, go to sleep early, drink coffee on the deck, drink coffee at Starbucks (my drink of choice:  Grande Java Chip Light Frap with whip, no drizzle thank you) … you get the picture.

All during these leisurely activities, I got a little restless.  We were renting a house in Washington state.  I didn’t want to paint the nursery because I am WAY lazy and was NOT going to want to paint it back to white should we move (which we did two months after bay-bay was born).  SO, I drew pictures with sharpie markers, highlighters, crayola markers and glitter glue. on some canvases to hang in the nursery.  I’m not a great artist but these are special—just for my little girl. These were the finished products (Though it looks like different shades of pink, the checkered pattern is all the same shade in real life…. also you’re eyes aren’t going wonky, several of the pics totally suck …. the camera pictures suck and are blurry, not the paintings… hee hee):

    I lIke all these but the duck & the cow are my favorites! So cute. You’ve been drawing like this since we were little. It’s very artistic of you, actually.

      Awe, thanks! Yea the duck and cow are my faves too! For some reason those optical illusion patterns were always addictive to draw for me. Did them all the time. Still do, HA!

      Thanks so much Christy! I had such a fun time making this pics. I don’t think Maddy really looks at them yet– but I can’t wait for her to see/understand the rubber ducky and cow!
