Caution: Masterminds at Work...

Ah, yes! Project Nursery update!!!

Okie dokie so first adjustment in 'Project Nursery' we have a change in our crib choice and color:

Since our fabric theme is a bit of the darker side with bright accents I prefered a white crib to aid in the color balance. So speaking of fabrics here we go:



Ek, aren't they just ridciculously cute!!!! So, the scheme is as follows:
Fabric One: Fitted Crib Sheet
Fabric Two: Crib Bumper [will have teal accent piping and ties] & Inner pleat of the Crib Skirt
Fabric Three: Outer Pleat for Crib Skirt & accent material for curtains

Accents to get:


Eco-Friendly and pretty much odor-free [good for all you preggos that are getting ready to paint :)]

Color Palate

Doesn't this just scream afternoon nap :)! I haven't decided if I want to just do an accent wall in this, 2 walls or the whole room...decisions decisions!

Well now our nursery is on its way...sort of we have to move first, come on September 1st, lol! :)

Other news:

* Appointment with the scary doctors today...hmmm

* First actual nursing shift on the 19th!!!!! [yay for being a big girl!]

*Glucose Test July 28th

I may make you cry

I know there is much to bring you all up to date on but it will have to wait because I must share this moment with you all.

I was just on my home from hanging out with my favorite little tyke Haylee and my bestie Nicole headed back towards the beach. The fireworks were going off at the beach and could be seen from the interstate. Add a bit of music and preggo nostalgia moment ensued. Livingston Taylor's "Somewhere over the Rainbow" had begun playing as I was driving towards the spectacular colors and shapes. I began to cry. Sweet little tears began rolling down my cheeks as they reached the little smile I had begun to display.

I had started thinking about all the wonders Jimmy and I are about to embark upon. I know we have roughly 3 months to go but I honestly couldn't help thinking about all the memories we will be making with our own baby. Seeing Jimmy hold his son for the first time. Wesley getting his first "Marley bath". Watching him grow and reach all of his milestones. It seemed like everything I had been worrying about and "over thinking" just went out the window and I began to feel calm and at ease of the fact that everything will work itself out. 

That is all for now. Just thought I'd share

The Almighty Protector aka Big Brother aka THE MARLEY!!!!

Oh the Marley...

While we sometimes refer to our little furry bubs as the "cuddly puppy" here lately he has been quite cuddly and extra cute. As soon as two little lines showed up on the stick Marley has actually acted differently towards me and favored more of Jimmy's attention than mine. [sad momma bear!]
But the tides have changed my friends!

Marley used to sleep between me and Jimmy at night, now he sleeps just next to me and the edge of the bed.
His new favorite "hang out" spot is my lap cuddling right on up to Wesley :)

Just too cute isn't he!!!!!

This is picture makes me just giggle! He was laying on my legs with his head resting right where Wesley was currently kicking the crap out of me :) with his paws on each side of the expanding belly!!! Oh Marley pup you are so precious!

He is turning into great 'big brother' material. Even when I say the name Wesley to him he looks at me then goes darting around the room like he is looking for him [this actually may be because the in-laws dog's names are Rusty and Bentley with whom he has lots of playdates with but we will pretend he is looking for Wesley, mkay?!] 

I just hope that with all the toys that Marley has of his own he will not be going after Wesley's and for that fact Wesley's socks cause Marley sure does love Jimbo's socks!!!

You all think I take too many pics of the pup just wait for Wesley to arrive!!!!
While 18 weeks may seem like a lot to some people I have a feeling it is going to fly by!
That is it folk 18 weeks to go!

oh, oh, oh and I have a great "project dream nursery" update coming soon so stay tuned :)
