getting ready

Tomorrow we go in for our 30 week check-up. Can I just say what a relief it is to have made it through the 20 weeks? Safely in the 3rd trimester, so grateful! If she decided to come early, which I hope she doesn't, I can handle anything in the 30 weeks. But she will cook until the end which I want her to. I must say that I will enjoy having my bladder, stomach, lungs and other such vital organs back once she is born but I will miss the thrill of feeling her every movement. That is my favorite part of being pregnant, feeling her move around. Colin and I have just been starring at my stomach watching her move around and it makes us literally giggle with delight! Oh she is already wrapped around our fingers!

We still have a lot, A LOT, to do before she comes. Slowly we are making progress on her nursery. We decided to put new flooring throughout our house, starting with her room. We have ripped out the carpet, tore up the tack board and taken off the baseboards. Our new flooring isn't here yet and we still need to pick out new baseboards and paint her room before we lay the floors. Let me restate that Colin still needs to paint her room, hahaha!

Here are some pictures of Colin putting together her bookshelf which will double as a changing table

Here are some pictures of her nursery (crib, closet, rocker that is a work in progress)

this is her fairy quilt that is part of her bed set (coordinating crib skirt and fitted sheet) SO CUTE!
