The Nursery

We still have a few things to hang on the walls, but the nursery is just about done and it's so so cute! The room is pretty small and it was hard to get pictures that actually do it justice, so you'll just have to use your imagination, and imagine it 100 times cuter than it seems! :)

The before pictures are after we moved the office furniture out.

 This is the wall you look at when you walk into the room.
 We have some cute ladybugs that are going to hang on the wall above the dresser here.

 Two windows to your left as you walk into the room.

 Wall opposite the dresser. The door to the room leads out into the kitchen.
 Once we name her, we're going to hang wooden letters spelling out her name over the crib.

 The wall on your right as you walk into the room has the closet,
 and a little nook area.
 The changing table and hamper fit perfectly into the nook.



We rent so we can't paint the walls, but I think the dark furniture ans all the pink and brown really makes the room look cute! What do you think?

37 weeks

Well, since I've been so bad at documenting my pregnancy here on my blog and I'll be 37 weeks tomorrow, it's probably time for an update!
  • I had a wonderfully beautiful baby shower the Saturday after Thanksgiving. I have some pictures, so I'll save the details for that post...whenever I get around to it.
  • The nursery is just about done and is so so cute! I want to do a separate post with before and after pictures of the room, so I'll save that for another day too.
  • I'm still working(!) and plan to keep working right up until the 31st as long as I don't go into labor before then. I'm definitely ready to be done working, but I want as much time with my little girl as I can get when she arrives.
  • I'm tired all the time and my back is really starting to bother me quite a bit, but other than that I can't really complain. It's just difficult for me to get comfortable and stay comfortable.
  • I just went to the doctor on Monday and baby girl hasn't made any progress yet. I've gained 27 pounds so far and it feels like every ounce is in my belly.
  • Despite how huge I feel, everyone else seems to think I look small.
  • I'm so sick of repeating this a million times a day that I'm ready to tape a sign to my belly that says:
    • I'm due January 5th.
    • Yes, it's my first baby.
    • It's a girl.
    • No, we haven't picked a name yet.
  • I'm extremely anxious and impatient at this point. I just want her to come and I want her to come now!
