Nursery Reveal

Well folks! I finally did it! Got my camera and took some pictures of the nursery...
i'll let the pictures do the talking...

once baby gets here, we'll hang his name in the light blue stripe.
the letters are ready and waiting in the closet but we haven't hung them since we've had friends and family at the house wanting to see the nursery!

changing area... door on the left connects to a bathroom...

our awesomely comfy glider from Babies R Us...
and baby's basket of books that people gave us at the shower. 
he has quite the library already. i can't wait to read to him!

scooter loves hanging out in baby's room...

we love the theme of puppies and sports we went with!

the first gift we received for baby from my awesome BOFF jenn!

fun wall decorations!

overall, i'm SO happy with how everything came out! hubby did such an amazing job with the painting and i'm so glad we decided to replace the carpets. though i miss my make up room, i'm over the moon excited for this to be baby's room.

The blog is always the first to be neglected!

Yup, that's it... this poor blog of mine has been severely neglected these past few weeks. Work (and life) has been insane (in the membrane!)

But, i'm back to write a quick post to let y'all know that i am still here and waiting for Baby boy's arrival!

So, where are we now? Wednesday I was 34 weeks!

I probably mentioned in my last post that my shower was a few weeks ago, and it was fabulous. I'll try to do a recap in a separate post (promise) if i ever get the pics off my phone.

I had 2 dr appts, we're now on the 1 a week appts and i get hooked up to the NST every week. Last week I did have a BH contraction while on the machine, but i actually never even felt it.

Baby boy is a wiggly worm and he's definitely going to be a good sized baby in the dr's words.
And surprise, he'll also most likely be making his debut early according to the dr since my hypertension makes them much more cautious. He said it's unlikely i'll go to 40 weeks.

In other news, the nursery is complete! We have everything done including the set up of the pack n play in the bedroom which we'll use for the first few months. Pics of the nursery to come soon!

We also put the car seat bases in and I went and got them inspected at the Sheriff's office. They tightened them but otherwise they were in correctly.

Oh and we had our maternity shoot, one word, ah-may-zing.... i'll leave you with a sneak peek!

isn't my photographer amazing? she did such a great job. we went to a local park (yes this IS jersey!) and shot there. it was so much fun and i'm so happy i'll have these photos forever to document this wonderful journey.

next on the agenda, mama's getting the grays covered tomorrow and then next weekend, infant care class!
