Ta Da! We are finished! Our baby room is now officially ready to welcome this new little squirmy pebble. After what seems like countless attempts at completion Corey and I buckled down this afternoon and got it done. We even hung the shelves without a level (I know I know, a carpenter's daughter with out a level, embarassing to say the least.) which was in it's self a very creative adventure. I have sorted and re-sorted the change table, packed the diaper bag with everything necessary to be stranded on Gilligan's Island and even put our first ding in the wall.
So my question to you all is, why isn't she* here yet? I mean seriously we're ready..."HELLOOOOOO, come out". At first I thought she was waiting for the change table to arrive, that happened last week so that wasn't it. Then I thought she was waiting for my hospital bag stuff to be ready, done...still no baby. I served her an eviction notice, hoping she'd get the point but she is a stubborn tenant. Finally I figured, "Of Course! She needs to know her room is tidy, ready and available", well it is and still it's empty. I don't know what else this kid wants...Donald Trump to re-evaluate his comb over? - not gonna happen.
Anyways, here are the pictures to survey our work. Don't worry the stuffies won't be in the cradle or the crib at the same time as the baby, they are just keeping things warm. And if any of ya'll have any "Get Baby out Now!" suggestions please let me know.
*Please be advised that any and all references to "she" may need to be replaced with "he" after the awaited birth.*
