our little lad...

Hello abode lovers! That's right, I guess Mama's intuition was RIGHT! (and Daddy's intuition for that matter) We've decided to name our sweet baby boy Lochlan Patterson McBurney-- it's super Irish, and we love that since we are a McFamily after all...

Super mom made the ombre style blue cake... loved it! She also rigged up the "babykins" sign and hung the mobile that she made well over 20 years ago for me before I was born!
Mister Husband and I couldn't be more thrilled... we were so happy to see our sweet babykins kickin' like a champ (a soccer champ that is) and waving to us with his tiny fingers... sweet Lochlan melted my heart! Way to give your mommy and daddy a show... 


So... now the planning begins. Our little lad will be here at the end of July and he needs an amazeballs nursery... so I MUST get on it ASAP! Here are a few pieces that were already purchased before knowing the sex...

This puppy was certainly a splurge, but I'm confident I'll use it for every baby I ever have... all 8 of them... or maybe just 3? Anyway, I snagged this bad boy right after Christmas when they were running one of their deals... I got this crib on sale, thank God! It's not due to arrive until April, good thing I ordered it so early! 


I am planning on placing this beautiful crib in front of a large window, so I knew that I wanted a crib with some visual weight OVER the crib... I love this piece! 


Serena + Lily's Marlo bedding. (I've loved it for years for a boy or girl) It's no longer being sold, but again, I snagged this bedding right after Christmas when it went HALF OFF for the first time EVER and is now GONE for good! We won't be tying little bows on the spindles... I will be tying very masculine knots so that Lochlan knows that he is in fact a boy :) Although, I don't mind the sweet touches of flowers and little bugs... babies are babies, and I love this bedding! 


No worries abode lovers... there will be plenty of masculine touches in the room and color that will help "boy up" the space... this is just what I have so far! I can't wait to share an inspiration board soon!  


Thank you so much for all of your kind comments and well wishes-- this is such an amazing time in my life and can't really wrap my head around the miracle that is happening within me, but I know that I'm excited! I hope all of you abode lovers have a fantastic day and Hip! Hip! Hooray! for BOYS!

  5. Congratulations! Love the name! We like Irish names too, since my family is Irish. Loving the crib and bedding! That was the same bedding I had my eye on at first! (Then I decided to not do bumper pads so I could splurge on other items and since Hayes was 6 months when we adopted him)Can't wait to see what you do with the room!!!

  9. YES! I LOVE the Marlo bedding as well. It went on BIG sale before Hannah was born and I debated and debated. I ended up finding a Bella Notte linen crib set on craigslist for cheaper and went that route, but Marlo was the forerunner for her nursery =) Can't wait to see Loch's little space!

  13. Aw congrats! So exciting! I can't wait to start buying stuff for our nursery! I love the neutral colors! I'm wanting tans, whites, browns, creams and a splash of color. Our baby is due at the beginning of July and we haven't bought a thing yet! Honestly I'm trying not to overwhelm myself since we are buying a house and all. But as soon as we get settled in March, I am so thrilled to start buying cute baby things! We JUST found out the gender yesterday and are just over the moon! Congrats again to you two! That cake is amazing by the way!

  17. Magical spells really work!! I never thought there were still honest, genuine, trustworthy and very powerful spell casters until i met the spiritual helper, Olalude Abija. last week he did a love spell for me and it worked effectively and now he just casted another healing spell for my friend who has fibroid and now she is totally free and she is presently the happiest person on earth, she keeps thanking me all day..
    I just thought it would be good to tell the whole world about his good work and how genuine he is, i wasn't thinking i could get any help because of my past experiences with other fake casters who could not bring my husband back to me and they all promised heaven and earth and all they are able to do is ask for more money all the time until i met with this man. he does all spells, Love spells, money spells, lottery spells e.t.c i wish i can save every one who is in those casters trap right now because i went though hell thinking and hoping they could help me.i recommend Abija for any kind of help you want in life. his email address is: spirituallighthealing101@live.com
    if you want to ask me anything my e-mail is: mariambaurice@gmail.com
    Kind Regards,
