That's about all that's been going on around here in the F household! Stephen had been working on painting a rocker/glider black that I bought on E-bay for $30 bucks(!). It was finally finished last week. I have a fellow Ds group member here in Alabama making some new cushion covers for it. I can't wait to see the finished product. Stephen also repainted some brown wood shelves black to match the rest of baby boy's furniture. They are now up on the wall. I got some cool lantern lights from Target as well and they hang over the rocker. I order the last big piece of the room today. A decal from Dali Decals! I love their stuff. I got a decal for Rachel's room back in NC so I know I can count on the quality and the speed of delivery.
The branches will remain dark brown but the leaves will be lime green.
The decal will go in the left hand corner of the wall over the crib!

Now, I felt bad for my sweet Rachel, doing all of this stuff for the new baby so her room is getting a little update as well. She getting to be so big and fun and her room needs to represent that. I took the green rug out of her room and gave it to baby boy. She got a new pink, blue, green, and yellow striped rug. I also took the last of the pink bees out of her room - a pillow and the dust ruffle. I got a new cool hot pink rose looking pillow from Target to put on her chair instead. I also ordered some new cool decals from Dali Decals. Check them out!
They will be in hot pink, white and pistachio. I can't wait for them to get here!

Other than that, I go to my 37 (!!!!) week check up at the OB-GYN tomorrow. Holy crap. I can't believe we only have 2.5 weeks left before baby boy is here. We decided to get a repeat c-section for a number of reasons but the main one is so that we can have someone here to watch Rachel. Since we don't have any family members or close friends here, we can't really call someone up at midnight if I go into labor and have them come over to watch her. It one of those things where I want my girl to keep some normalcy while all this new craziness starts coming into her life and having to drag her to the hospital when I go into labor at whatever hour isn't good for her. So, we have a babysitter lined up but, I do have a nice neighbor who I asked to be our back up just in case this little boy gets somegoofy idea about coming earlier than 39 weeks and one day. :)


  1. The room looks beautiful! Super cool!

    I can't believe you only have 2.5 weeks left too! WOW this pregnancy has flown by..for me at least! LOL

  2. I just love those decals. Both are really appropriate! I can't believe you're so close to having him and can't wait to hold them both in my arms. See you soon!

  3. The nursery looks so sweet. I want to order some dino decals for the baby and I think I will use the site you had mentioned.
    You look so good, I am sure you are ready to meet your little guy.
