The crib will be delivered at the end of next week!!  We're that much closer to having a completed nursery....yet not any closer to choosing a name!

My lovely mother sent us some really cute valances from Pottery Barn for the nursery so Casey and I went to Target to pick up some curtains to go along with them.  We found some really cute baby clothes on super sale while we were there (the sweater was $3.84 and the shoes were $1.87!!).  

Yeah, that's right....loafers.  My kid is going to be a super-prep.

The nursery feels nice and "glowy" with the curtains up.


We ordered our last piece of furniture today!  Yay!  Now we just have to wait to see when it will all be delivered........

Final Results!

The first picture is probably the best representation of the final wall color.  

Our first piece of nursery furniture - we need a dresser to start storing all of the clothes!!

"Ernest" - my contribution to the nursery.

Adventures in Painting...

After taking 30 minutes to decide on a paint color at Lowe's (Casey was ever so patient) - we went home to paint a wall in the nursery/office.  Casey, the amazing husband that he is, did all the painting while I painted a canvas to hang on the wall.

"Haggis in the Oven" (my brother's Christmas gift to me)

Belly Shot!


We're painting the nursery today!  Casey finally caved in and he's letting me paint the wall that the crib will be on!

Name Game...

So the name list has been revised once again (we deleted Callum, Tristan and Dylan).

We now have:


I'm thinking of letting people pay $20 to purchase a day and then if the baby is born on their chosen day, they get to name it!

I think he looks a wee bit like a monkey in that second picture.  Also, he might be flipping the ultrasound tech the "bird"!  She kept poking him with the ultrasound to get him to move his hand....I think he is retaliating.

We are definitely having difficulties picking out a name for our little guy.  We had picked out our name for a I'm not sure why we're having such a hard time settling on one for a boy!!  Here are some of our options:  (we're sticking mostly with Celtic/Gaelic names)


We can't decide!!!

Nursery Progress...

Casey and I spent all of today trying to clear out part of our "office" for the nursery.  My bureau is now in my tiny closet (you have to turn sideways just to get into the closet now!) and my desk currently resides in our bedroom.  We are planning on moving the antique bench into our bedroom as well - we'll have a bed, a desk, Casey's bureau, two nightstands, a trunk and two benches in our bedroom!  Amazingly, the room doesn't feel all that cramped.  

We bought a cute little bookshelf at Target today to put next to the changing table/bureau in the nursery.  The dang thing took forever to put together but it looks great!!  I'll be adding pictures soon of the progression of the nursery.   I'm still trying to convince Casey to let me paint!!!

We'll know on Wednesday whether our "it" is a boy or girl!!!
