Baby Stats Wall Art

Baby Elliott is here! Elliott Lochlan Thomas made his way into this world on February 21, and mommy and daddy couldn’t be more excited to welcome him into our family. I wanted to make a printed art piece to display all his birth info, and I thought it would be fun to share with all of you as well. So, if you or someone you know recently welcomed a new bundle of joy, this customizable baby stats wall art is just the thing you need to commemorate their big entry!

I went in for an elective induction last Tuesday. I was dilated to a 4 when I got there, and they got me going on Pitocin at about 8:30 in the morning. My doctor came in less than an hour later and broke my water: talk about a weird feeling! Last time, I had the epidural by the time my water broke, so I had no idea what it felt like.

When I was in labor with Davian, I remember getting the epidural when the pitocin level was at 7, so I wanted to see if I could go a little longer this time around. The nurse had it up to a 10 by about 9:30, and things escalated quickly! I went from having strong but bearable contractions every 5 minutes or so to having sharp, really intense contractions every other minute. I endured until about 10:45, and was more than ready for an epidural.

Once the epidural was in place (around 11:30), it was pure bliss! I was able to relax, enjoy some flavored ice chips, and even took a nap! I was dilated to a 6.5 by this point, and figured we still had a ways to go (based on my previous experience). When the nurse came back to check me at 1:00 PM, I was already a 9! She propped me up, and nap time was over. By 1:30, she had the doctor on the phone, and told him we were ready!

This is where things get crazy, hectic, exciting, all of the above—people coming in and out or the room—setting up machines, laying out medical equipment, getting prepped for the tiny human that’s about to join us.

My doctor came in at 2:00 PM, sat down, and one contraction and two pushes later Elliott arrived! I couldn’t believe it happened so fast! I was pushing hard for 45 minutes with Davian. To only have to push twice with Elliott was pretty much unbelievable. I was shocked. I think I even remember saying, “That’s it? You don’t need me to push anymore?” They say the first baby paves the way—that certainly rang true for me!

The whole thing really was an incredible experience! But one of the most special moments happened when they were cleaning Elliott up. He was exercising his newfound voice and crying nice and loud. Then, daddy started talking to him, and he immediately calmed down—it was like flipping a switch. The nurse cleaning him commented, “He recognizes your voice! Keep talking to him.” He stayed calm through the rest of the cleanup process with daddy there to comfort him!

It’s hard to believe it was a week ago that Elliott joined the Thomas clan! At 7 lbs 12 oz, he was a full pound smaller than his older brother was when he was born (and mama is grateful)!

I really love how this baby stats wall art turned out! I’ve had a bird theme going for Elliott’s nursery, and just had to include a pretty bird in the design. The file actually includes three different birds/color schemes, so you can take your pick.

If you’re not familiar with editable PDFs, don’t fret—they are super simple. But, before you get started, you will need to download the fonts I used (Befindisa and Cormorant). Once you have those fonts loaded on your computer, all you need to do is download my design, open the file in Adobe Reader, click in the highlighted blue boxes, and type in what you’d like. (The blue boxes don’t show up when you print, so you don’t need to worry about that.)

Enjoy creating your own baby stats wall art! Are you planning to make this for your own bundle of joy, or giving it as a gift?

      Aww, thanks Anji! Yes, it is so sweet to hold them and love them in their itty bitty stage! And sleeping does sound like pretty good advice right now. 😉
