Update.....

67 days, really! That's all I have until this baby gets here.....*sigh* I'm ready but I think I need more time. As you can see time has not been my friend lately, I seem to run out of it frequently. Maybe it's the attention the little guy needs or maybe it's that my house is still in a disarray but we are coming to the end & I am happy to say that today we get electricity in the room & the tile in the shower will be done. Next weekend we will have running water! Then the fun begins, decorating! Any ideas ladies? Anything in your bedroom that you were so glad you put, painted or planted in there that you want to share?We did get a bed (our old one is a queen size) & bedding. I searched for bedding for hours on the internet, with no luck, it's so hard to tell the colors and what you are going to get quality-wise. So I was off to many different stores in our area & settled for some Martha Stewart Bedding from Macy's & was pleased once I got it home & the colors worked. I still need to get the bed skirt on & Matt is going to help me make a headboard. I found this link, it looks simple...so it's off to JoAnn's for fabric!
Jack had his surgery last week & I am glad to say is doing great! No infection, no split stitches & he can finally get a real bath tonight after 5 days! He was a real trooper. I got to save his little hospital gown & it now has a special spot with his older brother's hospital gown. Justin was 3 when he got his tonsils out, now when Cole gets here he will have to accquire one too!

Sadly knitting has still been scarce. Ruby has given me a little bit of a headache & I am thinking she needs to be put away for a little bit so we can get a break from each other. I am making a ring bearers pillow for my SIL's wedding in June so I have to start that. It's really like knitting 2 dishcloths & sewing them together, it shouldn't be that hard & my little man will be carrying it down the aisle. In the meantime I did start my conatiner garden on the deck & I love it. I have so many different herbs. Chamomille, Stevia & Catnip for tea. Rosemary, Basil, Thyme, Oregeno, Chives, Parsley & Cilantro for cooking. Around Memorial Day I will add the veggies! Yummy!

Hope all is well with you all.....

What a sweetie! I'm glad everything went well! Isn't pregnancy funny? You cant wait for the baby to come, but at the same time you feel that you don't have enough time! Can't wait to see more of your decorating/home remodeling. :)

Your remod is coming along nicely. What a sweet child--glad to see that he is O.K. Its hard to believe that in just two mor months you will have your new baby! Where does the time go really?

I agree, with Kailey I felt ready but nothing was ready! *L* Love the bedding that you found, and I saved the link for the headboard. It's the best directions that I've read to make one.
So glad that everything went well with your lil guy!

I am so happy to hear that Jack's surgery went well. He does look like a trooper. Look at that grin! I know I didn't have a smile on my face when my appendix came out ;)

Oh my, I completely understand your feelings about Cole's arrival. I was so different this time around. Nesting happened (is happening) much more after birth this time b/c I simply didn't have the time with Simonne being almost 2. Plus, it felt like it was around the corner and then the last month or so felt like f-o-r-e-v-e-r.

Take it easy and just enjoy! I am SO excited for you guys!

Hi. I just found your blog and it's been a fun read! I can totally relate...we are expecting our first baby in less than a week and we just started an addition on our little house. Things are a little crazy, but oh so exciting. I wish you the best.
