The Nursery

Look! Two blog posts in a row! And this one has pictures. I can't figure out how to get the pictures from our camera onto the computer, but I did figure out how to use the camera and e-mail on my phone...and voila! I'm quite proud of myself. Here is the nursery, just waiting for baby. The rocking chair is a hand me down from my brother and sister in law - Chari and Joe -and the crib we actually bought ourselves - something we don't do very often with so much helpful family around! We are so grateful for all of the help and support we get!

Here is the other side of the nursery (the other side of the room is storage, I'll spare you). The dresser was a great $1 find at a garage sale by Danny's parents and the car seat is another of those great hand me downs from Chari and Joe.

My boss made this fun quilt for baby Oliver with the cowboys on it. And the cute one in the crib with the jungle animals Danny's momma made for him. It's so fun, she stitched messages into the quilting for him, it has his name, our names, and the words to "I am a Child of God."

Still Pregnant

I'm not actually due until the 26th, but I was so counting on getting out little guy out early that it feels like it's taking forever.... However, I know at this point that it will be absolutely no more than 2.5 weeks from now, and that is a relief. We are so excited to have a son! Meanwhile I am getting huger (is that a word?) every day and don't fit into most of my maternity clothes anymore - so I'm stretching out Danny's clothes for him. Why on earth do they make men's clothes fit pregnant women so much better than women's clothes? I don't think I'll ever understand.

My boss at work has been great, she has me scheduled for like 3 hours per day so I get to get out of the house still but I don't wear myself out. Up until last week I was still working 10-12 hour days. Ugh!

Everyone cross your fingers little Oliver comes soon! We love him and can't wait for him to get here! Actually - it would be preferable if he came on Friday afternoon since Danny starts classes tomorrow. We'd love to have the weekend together. Thanks!
