Week 27

This week is shaping up to be pretty busy and flying by like all the others. Last weekend I finished the bedding for Anna's room and we started to put things together. We still don't have much for the walls but I have ordered her monogram for the wall above the crib and John's Aunt Debbie is creating a painting for us based on the crib fabric/Beatrix Potter! We can not wait to see it!

We have our 28 week appointment on Thursday and then we go back every 2 weeks. She is moving so much lately and has added new acrobatic rolls and pushing to her activity list. It makes for interesting evening entertainment. She normally wakes me around 4 or 5 am to say good morning with a nice full body kick to the belly button. :) She is a dancer (although hopefully more graceful than now) already! We honestly just can't wait to meet her.

The crib bedding is complete! I am happily surprised with myself how it turned out! Now we just need to find the right pink crib sheet.

25 weeks & Anna's Room

So I am 25 weeks and 2 days today...can't believe how fast the time is going by. Over the past couple weeks we have been pretty busy...Blake & Leah's wedding, me in Colorado, Luke & John building a toy box and us getting a crib! I had a great time in Colorado Springs with Kristen taking care of Miss Emily Claire. I will post a video below of her giggles while we ate, but they were much better without the camera. :)

Here is my belly pics from July 6 and from today (stripe shirt)

Here is a picture of the WONDERFUL toy box Luke built for us and the crib bedding I started to sew.

I still need to fix the batting on the inside but so far so good!

Nursery in progress

Here is an example of "pregnancy brain" at its best. I go to Home Depot with my fabrics to pick out a paint color for the nursery. I found one that is perfect! I thought the name sounded familiar but didn't know why. So we get home, paint the nursery, it is perfect! Then John says as we lay in bed one night, "you know, the paint color in the nursery looks really similar to our bedroom". I was like, "no...couldn't be". OH, but sure enough, I found the paint can for the bedroom and it is the same..Coastal Beige. Sigh. At least I know I like the color!! The rooms do look completely different due to the beadboard in the nursery...but still, seriously???

Here are the fabrics I am using for the bumper and bedskirt. The tulle will be layered with the pink on top for the bedskirt. And the bumper will have the toile on the inside and the tan on the outside.

Here is the entrance to the nursery...all we have in there is the dresser!

Dresser...the drawers are still downstairs getting cleaned out. LOVE this antique piece in here!

New Floors!

Here are pictures of our new floors!! We just love them. All that is left to do is bring in the bookshelves in the family room (to the right of the couch), hide the TV cords and get a rug (and maybe an extra that we have more space after the rearranging)! We still are putting away items found during the cleanout and adding pictures to the wall. Enjoy!
