Baby Girl's Room

I am so proud of this room! I have finally finished the baby's room and I love the way it looks. We rent our apartment and this hideous green is the color the owners painted this room. It was fine for a boy (I guess) but I thought I wouldn't be able to do anything for a girl. Well, it actually turned out pretty good and the green ties in well with the stuff on the walls. My mother-in-law made the crib blanket and the window valance and I made everything on the walls.

My friend Marie made the carseat cover and I LOVE it!

I'm way proud of this lamp, I had a skirt that I never wore so I covered an Ikea lamp shade with it. I also made all of the rings hanging on the walls.

And...I made these frames. I started out wanting them to be for hair bows, but I found this fabric for the middle and I just don't want to cover it up. Now they are just for decoration. I really am not the craftyess person in the world but all of these projects were so simple and I just loved seeing everything come together. Now I guess all we can do is wait...3 more weeks!

Baby Shower

My friend Michelle threw me a fantastic baby shower this weekend, we ate lots of yummy food and I got tons of really cute clothes. Thanks to everyone who came, I had such a fun afternoon. This is a picture of everyone who came, except my mother-in-law and sis-in-law.

The diaper cake and the little favors Michelle put together. I wish I would have taken more pictures at the party.

Here are a few shots of me opening gifts.

and my two little helpers, who would have thought that a 2 and 3 year old would be so excited about baby clothes

I really did get adorable gifts and i can't wait to dress baby girl in them. My mother in law made me a beautiful crib blanket and a window valance for her room. When everything is done I will post pictures of the room I can't believe how different it looks now.

Our rock star

Wes already loves his baby sister (i'm about 34 weeks in this picture)
