Odds & Ends

It’s been a busy few weeks! Our dresser/changing table finally arrived (about 6 weeks later than expected), so we were able to finish organizing and decorating Avery’s room. There are still some last minute things I’d like to do, but at least everything is in place now.

Here are a few pictures of the nursery. I'm a little disappointed, because the camera really doesn't do justice to all the cute butterflies and purple/green accents in the room.

We also installed the car seat and extra car seat base over the weekend and assembled the pack ‘n play where we plan to let Avery sleep when she comes home during those first few weeks. And, more importantly (just kidding, well, maybe), some very special accessories finally arrived in the mail!
Avery’s very chic hat and bows.
Avery’s first Christmas ornaments.
I’ve also had several requests for some pictures of my belly! I posted a few of the professional maternity photos a few weeks ago, but here is a nice comparison during the last trimester.

Me at 34 weeks and 37 weeks.
If our little girl maintains her stubborn streak (and since she’s my child, I know she will) and refuses to turn head down, we’ll be welcoming her next Friday morning! It’s almost hard to believe, but we’re so excited!!


  1. Love the nursery... and you look GREAT!!

  2. I think your nursery looks beautiful! You are getting really close. It's an exciting time!
