Well, the nursery is very close to being finished. We have a few things we need to hang on the walls, and I need a changing table (mostly for the storage underneath). I registered for one, but if I don’t get it I am going to use my gift cards to purchase it. I really want to purchase it right now, but I am waiting until after my family shower in a week and a half. When it is complete I will post pictures. But, for now, I was going to post some before pictures of the room, and one sneak preview picture….
Please notice the BRIGHT red walls. HA HA.
And here is a sneak preview of the after….
I can’t help but feel so amazingly and abundantly blessed. After years of unsuccessfully trying to have a baby, and hundreds upon hundreds of negative pregnancy tests, it seems like just yesterday I finally saw this faint pink line…
And now, we are less than two months away from meeting this little bambino who is going to profoundly change our lives, and I just can NOT wait. I am trying to enjoy each day of summer before the baby, but it is hard not to be super excited.
I am starting to feel really connected to the baby, talking to it, and watching it move my belly in weird ways. For a long time, I avoided feeling a connection because I think I was trying to protect myself because we had suffered a pregnancy loss the first time around. But, after my scare on Monday, I realized that I am all in and already connected beyond my comprehension. While it was happening, I was so panicked and protective, and freaked out. I knew my motherly instincts were kicking in.
I can’t believe I am going to be a mom.
Thanks for reading!!
