Another week…a bigger belly! Thank goodness we’re in the home stretch (almost). My body is tired. I think I always do way too much on the weekends because by Sunday night I feel sore and exhausted. Or at least lately. On Friday, I had the bright idea to clean the baseboards in the house. Why not, right? I paid for that the next day. Hey, at least I have clean baseboards now. Perhaps just not something I would recommend to those with child. Or 8 months with child anyway.
So here I am. With my apparently 4 lb child.
Not sure this cami is going to make it until the end. It’s almost not doing the job anymore!
And now for why you’re really reading this post. I think we’re about done with the nursery (decorating-wise), especially since I got the finishing touch this weekend at my shower! So I figured now is as good as time as any to share with the world. All that’s missing is a baby. And me sleeping in the glider.
Just need to wash the crib sheet and we’re ready for a baby!
Can I take a minute to brag on myself? Good, because I am. See those canvases hanging on the wall? I made them! YEA ME! Talk about the most creative, artsy-fartsy thing I’ve ever done in my life (which…really, is kinda sad). I tried to match his bedding and they ended up turning out a lot better than I thought. Yes, I will make you some, and yes, they are a steal at $100 a piece! Get ‘em while they’re hot!!!
We were also lucky to borrow a bassinet from a friend of a friend. That will go in our room eventually and will be so nice to have at the very beginning when Jake arrives.
So so cute!
Here’s a sneak peek into his closet. I tried to get all the clothes in the picture and almost succeeded. I just love looking at all these clothes! And I still can’t believe he’s going to need so many more. We have gotten some precious things! And look at those tiny shoes on the shelf! We got some newborn-sized kicks this weekend at the shower. Yes, I will definitely make sure he wears those ASAP.
Well, there you have it. All this blogging today has officially worn me out and now I think it’s past my bedtime. Less than 2 months, folks!
