My birth story is for another day and another time. It didn't go as planned at all, but in the end we ended up with a beautiful healthy baby boy. Here are a few pictures of my little potato.
Health and Happiness,
|At 25 weeks.|
|Mom and I painted the nursery over the weekend. Three walls are the Seaglass, and the window wall is Sonic Silver.|
|Shopping around we found this fabric shower curtain for $15 at Target that my mom cut in half and sewed into curtains.|
We also found a nice curtain rod for $8 at Joann Fabic, and curtain hold backs for $5 at Ross. Considering the curtains I had liked on Amazon were $45 by themselves, we got a steal! The green chair will be leaving us in a yard sale soon. The cute bassinet was from when I was a baby. We'll be using it in our bedroom for the first month or so.
|My dad made me these fantastic book leaning shelves (idea from Pinterest). The bottom shelf is smooth so I can put a cup of water and my phone there while sitting with the baby. The top three shelves used grooved baseboard planks so that they would perfectly hold leaning books. We don't have any baby books yet, so Kevin brought up some comics to fill the space. The glider we got for a great deal at a yard sale for $40!|
|My dad helped me make this tree branch shadow box (idea from Pinterest). After this picture we had touched up the white outer box. You can see it finished in the photo above. We had the outer box wood leftover from another project and we got the branches from the woodsy area by my house, they had already been cut down.|
|The changing table was a find from a friend's neighbor who was trying to get rid of it for $20. |
The storage bins were a present from my parents from Target.
|Another view of the bookshelves and rocking chair.|
|Kevin and I found this cute definition at a market vendor in Portland that had painted it on reclaimed wood (wanting $40 for it!). I took the lettering and embroidered it on a burlap frame I had used a long time ago to hang my earrings on.|
|My mom also helped me to put some adorable owl buttons on a cardigan I finished knitting a few months ago.|
|The parents-to-be. Do we look terrified?|
We're trying our best to keep our cool.
Excited but terrified!
|Here was the picture from our 14 week ultrasound. |
I point out a few features in the pictures below because
before I saw an ultrasound in person I could never
figure out what each part was.
