Tonight, Kanyon and I rush to Midland after I get off work and head to Houston! I'm so excited. We have lots to celebrate there like Kanyon and Dad's birthdays, a baby shower for Brindle (!), and a close family friend's wedding. I'm super excited. My head's starting to spin a little bit already, though, with all the people and events we'll have going on.
So the last couple weeks have seen some progress on the nursery! Nothing has really been installed yet but its been bought and is in a box waiting or is being shipped. Such as a lace canopy for the crib, curtains, and an upholstered glider. Kanyon also bought a beautiful twin sleigh bed a couple weeks ago at an estate sale that he just went to to help a friend load his purchases. He got it for a steal and its brand new. It will be nice to have for her "big girl bed" later on. But that is so weird to think about having a toddler that I'm just calling it another guest bed. I'm thinking ahead to Christmas when Landon usually stays in that room when our big family all comes into town. I'm sure he won't mind getting up with the baby all night for me, right? We love having people come visit so we like having lots of places for them to sleep.
Ok, some pictures...
I really need to find a good place to take baby bump pictures but my work's bathroom will have to work for now. I took this last week to send to my brother. I'm about 32 weeks right now. That just makes me freak out a little bit.
Some recent purchases for the nursery... bumper pads, my diaper bag that I kinda want to make my purse already, and the glider.
As far as her bedding, I didn't pick out a set or anything. I had this image in my head of cream and tans and different fabrics and textures with a couple cute colorful pillows. So I've kind of been making it up as we go. Which makes it really easy for people like my mothers who are trying to help me create it. Sorry, y'all...
I got a gift card for my high chair from several of my cousins and that weekend it went on sale for about $30 off and free shipping online so I snagged it and had extra money on the card to spend. I knew this was what I wanted to use it on immediately. I couldn't find it anywhere online, even Target where I got it, so I was scared it was going to be gone.
My awesome glider! I love it. Vaughn and I found it at Kidspace in Lubbock. I'd been scouring the internet for weeks trying to find a good quality upholstered glider at a good price and in an attractive fabric. Not much luck there since when I would find one at a good price, it'd be at a website that I wasn't sure about and was not interested in paying shipping for an item I may not like. So this was super exciting to find. Why, you may ask, did I not just go look at furniture stores to begin with? Because I live an hour away from the nearest children's store, so there. I know, I know, I could have saved myself some frustration.
This is the fabric I chose. NO. Its not green. My phone would not register the right color at the store for some reason. Its a really pretty brown - called Taupe. I couldn't decide between this fabric or a linen fabric that looked like burlap. In the end, this was a little cheaper and much softer. Sold. Can't wait for it to come in!
And last but not least... pictures of a couple of my nephews and nieces! I get to see this boy in a couple days! This is Preston.
And this is Addalie, who I get to see all the time (YAY!) since Sena and Daniel moved to Lamesa. One of the best things ever that has ever happened to me. Addalie cracked me up one night at a church block party when she was sunbathing on the bounce house.
I have a new honorary nephew that I would love to show pictures of because he is gorgeous but his momma hasn't posted any pictures of him on the internet yet and, of course, I want her to be the first one to do it. But you can catch me scrolling through my "Magnus" album on my iPhone all the time, dying to see him in person.
Magnus's mom is Ali, who was my brother and I's babysitter growing up and basically our older sister. She and her parents are originally from the UK and they all live there now. Mom gets to go see Magnus in April and I'm still undecided about when I can finally get over there to meet him! I figured I should try and wait to book a flight until after I have Brindle... though I'm squirming to book them yesterday.
Anyway, I am going to get a little more work done before I head out to meet Kanyon and head to the airport. Have a great weekend! I know I will!
