I am beyond late with a new post…so here goes. :)

Since my last post, we found out that we are having a baby boy! We are very excited to meet our Little Monkey. So far, everything is going well. I am still have morning sickness every day, and I am into my third trimester. But, only 3 more months of nausea to go, so not too bad, right?? My baby bump is well…a bump! I feel huge but I know I have a lot of growing still to do. Here I am at 26 weeks:

26 Weeks!

The nursery is coming along. My sister came down in January to help us paint. Then my husband installed a new ceiling fan. My father and my brother came down in February to re-finish the floor. It looks great so far thanks to everyone’s help. We still have plenty of work to do sanding and painting the trim and windows and building something to make the closet more usable. Hopefully we can get those projects done in April. Here are some pics of the progress:

My amazing mom also bought us a nursery set – which is an amazing and unexpected help. We spent some time this past weekend putting the crib and the dresser together. We still have to put the changing table together. After we set the crib up in the guest room, we realized it is too wide to fit through the doors, so once the nursery is ready, we are going to have to take it apart and put it back together!



My also super amazing sister is making curtains and bedding for the baby’s room. Here is a pic of the curtain fabric we picked out. So cute! I don’t know how she does it!

I know I should probably write some more, but being pregnant and all, I am really tired and need to go relax for the night. I will end with a Jovi pic from this winter. It makes me smiling just looking at it.

  1. Great post – love the pictures! The crib and dresser look great, can’t wait to see the room put together! I’ll aim to have the curtains done at Easter if I can so you can bring them home and put them up.

  2. I think we are all excited that it is getting closer to the big event, and that you are allowing us all a part to share in the preparation… It looks great so far and Jovi does make me smile, too.

  3. Hey girl! I think we are ready for an update about our superstar!
