GETTING READY FOR BABY

 
The baby is due in June, and Jill is getting the nursery ready.  Since they have decided not to know if they are having a girl or boy until it's born, and since Jill has always loved animal prints they are going with that theme.
 
She's waiting to see if there will be some splashes of blues and greens, or pink and lavenders in the room, but now she had some giraffe print curtains with stuffed lion ties.  I talk to her today, and she said, "Mom, remember the Lion and Cub you painted for me, it's hanging in the babies room on the wall next to the Lion Ties on the Curtains."
 
I'm really excited that my Daddy Lion and cub will be hanging in the Nursery.  I saw this picture in a National Geographic Magazine, and fell in love with it.  I said I've got to paint this.   I love Daddy Lion babysitting while Momma Lioness is out getting dinner.
 
It's been a long time since I decorated a Nursery...How about you?

  2. Lovely painting, Wanda. Things are moving at our end and prayers are being wonderfully answered. Hope to have an announcement blog pretty soon. Thanks for your prayers. Prayer that all matters will go smoothly will be greatly appreciated for this next week. Love the animal theme for the nursery. We have four members of our family with birthdays in June. It's going to be a busy month for you.

  4. I will never understand a couple who doesn't want to know the sex of their baby to come ! I was so angry not to know when I was pregnant, but in 1973 it remained a surprise until the end ! I wanted a girl and had a boy ! I decorated the nursery in red and white. But for my grandchild I knew it ! My son called me as soon as he knew and it was .... again a boy ! I think my handmade doll house will end up in a vintage store, lol !

  6. What a thrilling thing it must be to have your painting hanging in the nursery.
    I just love the picture (Aslan and his child or children)
    This is such an exciting time. I look forward to all of the updates.

  7. Yes, it's been a while, but I still remember the feeling! There's just nothing like that nesting instinct that takes over during those last few months! Aw...how fun!

  9. I never decorated a nursery, but I had plenty of babies to put in one... I did, however, dream of decorating a nursery. Does that count?

  12. My daughter and her husband are also expecting in June, and also not wanting to know boy or girl ahead of time. (Our 1st grandchild!) We're going to their place this weekend to help with nursery preparation--not decoration yet... they need to do some work with the walls first.
    Love your lions!
