Ready or not.... Here he COMES!!

WARNING: LONG POST AHEAD!

So...
I think I'm ready!
I've cleaned practically every little thing in the house and have finished all of the major projects I had in the works. I CANNOT even tell you how great it feels to be semi-prepared. I've been workin' my booty off these last few months/weeks to get to this point, and I'm so ANXIOUS to meet our new little bundle of joy. I still have over 3 weeks left, but I'm HOPING to go a little early (don't we all!).

I don't know why I think I'm even ready because thinking of pushing a human being out of me is a little uh... what's the word... FREAKY! Lily's delivery was so wonderful that I'm afraid it will only go downhill from there. We are praying all is well and hope that Gavin can make his entrance with no problems!!

We did a BABY POOL with Lily, and thought we would do the same with Gavin.

**That being said, leave a comment with the DATE, TIME, & WEIGHT and whoever gets the closest will when a PRIZE from me... it could be a craft, a custom vinyl order, or if I'm feeling lazy, a gift card or something.

Any who, here are a few pics of what we have been up to the last month...

Gavin's nursery... my mom made his bedding, the only thing missing is the Dr. Seuss crib sheet which I haven't put on yet.
A sign I made for the nursery.
A Magnet board I made

The rag quilt for the twin bed in Gavin's room.
Some wall art we made for the nursery.

I made some of these for the people who answered my craft post a few months ago, but instead they say LOVE or JOY (this one I made for the living room).

Burp cloths I made for Gavin as well as for some of those who answered the craft post awhile back.
Lily's room
More of Lily's room....
And Lily's new bunk beds which we painted and I made rag quilts for.

Talk about tiring!! We PAINTED both Gavin's and Lily's room in the last two months and have been trying to get them in order. I'm so glad to be done with all this crud I put on my own shoulders. I think more than anyone, Lorin is especially glad I'm pretty much done. :D

And then here are some family pics we took before Ryan, Lorin's little bro, left on his mission a few weeks ago. We thought we would kill two birds with one stone and also got Lily's 2 year pics done.
Recommendation: Don't ever get pics done when you're this pregnant!




My FAV!! I sure love this little girl!!

REMEMBER: If you want to be in the baby pool, just leave a comment and I'll add you to the list. In case it helps, I was 9 days early with Lily and she was 6 lbs. 7 ounces.

Oh yeah, and I'm due Sept. 26th.

Here's my guess: Sept 12th 7 lbs 1 oz. I hope you go early! I was so ready to go early with Abby and went when I wanted to, so I wish you luck! I also had super easy deliveries with both of mine, even easier the second time around, so I wish you that as well! Good luck!

Amy said...

Oh, and WAY cute rooms!!!!!!! Nice job :)

Kristi said...

okay, September 19th 6:30 pm 7 lbs 3 oz. Good Luck! I love the rag quilts. I need to learn how to do those.

September 18th - 7lbs 2oz.

Everything is so adorable . . . wish I had you around to decorate for me!

So cute. I can't wait until we finally have a house for me to paint and decorate. (I know I can decorate the apartment--which I do, but isn't the same.) I think that you should have Gavin on September 16th (our anniversary), and he will be 7lbs 4oz (same as Jacob). Good luck!

By the way how are you? It has been too long.

The rooms turned out amazing! They are so you. So cute! My guess is September 25 (only because two of my best friends share that birthday). I know you hope I'm wrong but I sure hope I'm right so I can get that craft prize! :)

Cute pics of Lilly. Gabi never sits still for pictures!

Jaylynn said...

You are so crafty! When I get a house I may have to use your expertise when decorating...love your house! My guess is Sept 20th 3:04 pm 7lbs 6 oz. Good luck! Can't wait to see what the little boy looks like!

you've definately been in nesting mode...and it's certainly paid off, everything looks so cute! Good luck these last few days/weeks. I'm guessing September 15th, 6:40pm, 6 lbs 13 oz.

September 13th Hopefully walking around gets you started. He'll be 7lb 3oz

First, your kiddos rooms are adorable! They look great- you are so good at decorating! So, I think Gavin will come on Sept. 19 (Kate's b-day) at 2:30 and he will weigh 7 lbs 4 ounces. Good luck!
