We have a nursery ... almost!

We painted, painted, painted, cleaned this weekend! Now we have a nursery, a place for the little guy to call home. I'll add more pictures later but this gives you an idea of what we did. It looks great and we are both really happy with how it turned out.

We are so lucky to have been given a crib, changing table, and a ton of other stuff. Today we bought the baskets on the changing table, the changing pad, and a few other things. Seems like I am getting over my fear of Babies R Us and apparently not a moment too soon.

This picture is a little dark, but the elephant on top is my absolute favorite thing. I bought him in Santa Cruz and I can't wait to see Tiny Sheff dragging him around by his ear.

I still can't believe that we are going to have a baby in this room soon. The hus and I have both walked by the room and just stared in disbelief. I think we are pretty much ready now, but are new parents ever really "ready" or "prepared"?

This picture was taken at 34 weeks! I am 35 1/2 weeks now. I am officially delivering at the UCSD Birthing Center with a group of midwives. They are amazing and are 100% on board with the type of delivery we want.

Nanna will be making the drive as soon as we call her. Hopefully that will be within the next 6 weeks!
