Obviously, a lot has happened, but far and away the most important being that we are anxiously waiting for our baby BOY to arrive! Weston should be here in about 2 weeks...but if he decided to come early it would not hurt my feelings. ;-) J and I are so excited and can't wait to begin the life-long adventure of parenthood together.
We've been very busy getting his room ready and I have to say I love it! I get asked a lot about what theme we are using and I always laugh because I do not do well with themes. Trying to match everything stresses me out. So J calls this theme "random with color" and I think that sums it up pretty well. :-)
We still have to hang some things on the walls and I have an idea in my head about a DIY mobile that could turn out to be a disaster, but here are a few pictures of what we have right now.
|We decided we wanted this twin bed in the room in case we need an extra bed for company, but I'm thinking it may come in handy on late nights too. :-) All the pillows were made by my mom.|
|This shelf was supposed to lie on it's side for a bench, but we didn't have enough room. Oh well, I still love it. The shelf and baskets are from Ikea.|
|This crib is a Jenny Lind (I think that's how you spell it) and it's the same one J used when he was a baby. My mom made all the bedding.|
|Embroidered quilt made by my sweet grandma. It makes me smile. :-)|
|Pillow made by the best mom in the world...mine.|
|This is an old desk that my parents had. They added shelves, painted it, and replaced the knobs to turn it into a changing table.|
|This is the one thing I did myself. It's made from an old board from my grandparents' house and will be hung on the wall...not lying in the floor.|
|Door hanger made by my talented friend Amanda.|
|Chalkboard made by another talented friend Allison.|
|And I had to include this picture of Dixie just because she's adorable and I love her. She also thinks this is her room. :-/ Our spoiled furbaby may be in for a rude awakening when little brother arrives.|
|This is Weston at 38 weeks with only 2 more to go! Holy cuss word! We will be parents soon!|
