The trials and tribulations of our journey to make a baby.

I would die for that.

Some fun pictures to share!

We had a busy weekend but, I swear I took it easy. DH painted the "baby nook" (that's what we call the little section of our room that baby will occupy until the economy rebounds and we can extend the house or move... you know when the kid is 18 years old.)
I layed in bed, watched him painting the walls along with some silly movies all day.

But, I did paint the dresser. We took DH's old dresser and added the decals that matched the bedding. Then we added a few coats of varnish and Voila! We had a dresser. And I think it's pretty cute! Here the front and the top... followed by the two sides.

Here is the bedding.

And here is the crib we ordered this weekend also. We ordered early because, "they" say that it can take up to 10 weeks... Well, my friends.. ours is coming in two weeks!! YIKES.

Then.. here are pics of the "baby nook" before and after. We are adding an overhead pendant lamp and hopefully we are going to figure out how to block off the whole front of the "baby nook" with a sheer green curtain with tiebacks so there is some nice separation.

The crib will go where the dresser is currently. Then the dresser will go in the right corner facing forward. Behind the crib we will hang the quilt as a wall hanging and on the right wall we will put a high shelf and some pics in frames.

Next, I have some 24 week shots and the "funny as hell" t-shirt that DH got me for Valentine's Day. I must point out that he got me a size too big. When I questioned that.. he looked at my belly and raised his eyebrows... so yeah... that was great. :)

Other than that... hmm... I think my shower is coming sooner than I expected. I told my Mom I don't want to be surprised.. and she basically told me to "go shove it". So, I am a little upset. I don't want to walk into my shower in my weekend attire of the ugliest, most comfy clothes that I have. So now I am going to be paranoid. She did say that she would take a dress from me and bring it to the shower so I can change.. but, I think that might look crazy. I am pretty good sleuth and Dh is pretty lame about keeping secrets.. so I may be able to figure it out.

I tried on the dress I thought I would wear... Isn't it funny how things can look cute on you at 4 weeks pregnant and make you look like a pregnant farmhand from Little House on the Prairie at 25 weeks??? Umm I need to shop for a new dress.

Other than that.. I have taken much better care of me this weekend. So I feel better. I have the whole week off and I am so excite to do nothing.

Oh yeah... My dumb dog cost us 400$ at the vet this week for... basically.. pink eye. Apparently, it went very wrong and now her eye is in all sorts of trouble. And my vet likes to "get you" for every penny. Sooo... No fun for me this week.. We spent all our "fun" on the doggie. She should be okay though... I am quite sure that we are done paying for this though. She has one more appointment next week.

So that's it. If you are still reading.. You deserve and award! This was long and not too interesting!

The baby nook will be great. The dresser looks awesome! "The Dingo ate my baby" is super hilarious!

Surprise showers? BOO. Hopefully DH will slip up...

And poor doggy. Hope she gets better soon.

Wow - that dresser is to die for! So cute. I am in full agreement about the lack of surprise on the shower. I mean, you know you're having one, so they might as well tell you when it is!
