So, my family in St. Louis is hosting my first baby shower (Saturday, March 7th). Terry's family is hosting one in Chicago (Saturday, April 4th) and my beautiful friend Sherry is going to host one in Indianapolis (probably May 2nd or 3rd).
My 'lil sis, Karen designed the shower invite for my Missouri shower. It's super cute!!! Although, she describes it as "nothing special" I think she did a great job. (See the above picture)
Doesn't it seem so unrealistic that I'm over half way??? I can't hardly believe it!!! Although it doesn't seem real yet, I'm excited to finally start really celebrating our little miracle babies with family and friends. Yes, our showers are very early, but this was done so that I will actually be able to travel to them. We appreciate everyone taking my health and the health of our daughters into consideration when planning these.
On another note:
The decorating of the nursery has officially begun. Anyone who knows my procrastinator husband, knows that he's a great painter/decorator, but things must go at his pace. Which nine times out of ten is pretty equal to a snails pace. My downstairs powder room took almost 3 months to paint. So, I knew that we needed to start this process very early.
We have two spare rooms which both are 14x16. Just to make my explanations easy, we call one room the blue room and one room the white room. We decided to make the room with the walk in closet the nursery(the white room). Both rooms have furniture in them right now, but one set of furniture is obviously better than the other. So, we need to take the furniture from the blue room (the not so good stuff) down to the basement, and move the furniture from the white room into the blue room. This process started on Sunday, but Terry quickly found out that he can not do it alone. Obviously, I can not help so we are waiting for some friends to come over and help out. Once the furniture moving is done the painting shall commence. I will post pictures and updates of this process once it begins.
I was able to clean out the closet and transfer the stuff/junk from one closet to the other over the weekend. Although it's been a slow process, I'm OK with it. I still worry on a daily basis that something may potentially happen and we will be left with an empty baby nursery. So right now, I think baby steps is the best way to proceed!! As I learned in my readings this week.... God makes things beautiful in its own time. (Ecclesiastes 3:11) so I will patiently wait for it's completion.
