baby girls nursery:)

her room is coming along! still needs some final touches, but we are getting there.
 i still have the sewing machine set up, just since im still using it and doing projects. i'll probably keep it in the closet so its handy. im sure i wont be using it for a while after she comes.
I took the curtains that were in our room and put them in here, and I love it! Need to figure out some sort of room darkening solution....but for now...
flag banner i made.

 crib skirt i made.
its nice we were able to keep the queen bed in the room. i didnt want to get rid of the guest room. so its good we can still have overnight visitors. 

still figuring out what to do with that empty frame above the bed. i got it on freecyle last summer. thought it was fun over the bed.
i attempted to make a changing pad cover...and was surprised at how easy it was and how nice it turned out! the fabric was $2.00 and i had the elastic! much cheaper than the store bought ones:)

blanket my nanny made me when i was a baby.
nap nanny all ready to use passed down from erika. micah loved it, and then emmi used it and loved it, now its my turn to use it!

still need pictures in the frames etc.

My mom found this book, the story of New I just need to find the story of New Hampshire!:) 
we had been given this changing table from someone at church. it was white, but i thought itd be fun if it was painted. so chad painted it pink! i think its fun. still have to organize the shelves and hang something above the table. 
so there you have it! we're getting there!:)

32 weeks

8 months!
sometimes it feels like ive been pregnant with this pregnancy forever. but then again, its crazy to think theres only about 8 weeks left! we're excited to meet her!!

We took callen to a circus yesterday. We were supposed to go Friday night, but when we got there the tent wasn't even up yet...and we were told a piece broke to the tent so they canceled it. Thankfully they were in town for two days. Callen was so excited for it. So we went back Saturday and sure enough, the tent was up! 

Poppy gave callen some money to buy something there, so thIs is what he picked.

Callen wanted to ride the ponies, so I saved our seats and chad took him. I would've taken more than one pic;) but glad chad got this one with his phone. Callen had fun!!
We left at intermission. Callen had fun, but he didn't quite get the concept that everything was a show for us to watch. Each new "act" callen kept asking if he could do it. So before he ran out into the circle, we left:) it was fun!

It was so nice that my parents drove down to visit. They got in at 1 in the morning on Monday and left Tuesday morning. They have a busy life and schedule so it means a lot when they are able to sneak away. making such a big effort to see us. Love them so much~

Callen loves riding his bike. He calls it his bicycle or motercycle:)
He came over to me- his gas station. I asked if he needed gas. He said yeah, regular credit. 
I said what did you say?? He said fill it regular credit. I started laughing. Haha! He hears his jersey girl mom (and dad) when we're at the stations getting gas. Us jersey folks don't pump gas after all:) 


Our lilacs are blooming! We always think of auntie Erika as they are her favorite:)

Crib skirt

Here's the crib skirt I made yesterday. It's still in the works. But for now, a little sneak peak.

Poor callen is sick...again. Started with a cough, then Friday he started complaining about his ear, and all of a sudden he was miserable. So to the drs we went. And sure enough another ear infection, in his other ear this time:( he just had one in his other ear...two weeks ago. the dr told him that he was a smart boy, being able to tell me he's sick. So thankful he's able to let me know what hurts!

So, more medicine, a different kind this time and he does not like it. He's had 3 doses so far and each one has been a battle. 8 more days to go of it. On top of the ear infection he may have allergies? Not really sure yet. But very miserable. Runny nose, eyes and an awful cough. No naps the past two days. And up first thing in the mornings. He hasn't been eating much, which is so not callen. He is a great eater. So we know he's not feeling well. It's been a rough day...for us all?? Hopefully he gets some good rest tonight.


We ate at Denville dog and grill today for lunch. The perfect day to eat outside. We ended with a root beer float for us and ice cream cone for callen. It was so fun!
