24 Weeks

Things are going well here at the Nelson house! I am 24 weeks now and grateful that this has been a very easy and uneventful pregnancy thus far. We are excited that my Grandparents from Michigan have moved down to STL and plan on seeing them often! Layna is doing great in her 'Big GIRL Bed' and loves sleeping there every night. My first VERY vivid baby dream was this week. Karl and I were at the hospital waiting for the baby to arrive and when it came- It was a CHUBBY baby GIRL with black hair just like her sister. She resembled Layna but it wasnt her- and the biggest difference was that she was even CHUBBIER!! Lord help me!! So I document this to see if my dream has any substance. We shall see...

This weekend my parents took Layna overnight on Sunday and all day Monday so that we could get her BIG GIRL ROOM ready!! Karl agreed to do wainscoting on the bottom of the walls if we didnt have to paint anything in the room PINK! I loved the idea of the wainscoting and decided to take a risk with orange walls. Paint has never scared we went for it! When it first went on the wall I was a bit leary but now that the room is put together..I LOVE IT!! I found this bedroom set on Craigslist for super cheap which I love as well! The bedding, curtains and pillows are all from JCPenny's.
Layna has been talking about her big girl room for quite awhile and has even mentioned wanting to sleep in there. We may try that in the next couple of weeks and see how it goes. The very worst that can happen is that she goes back in the crib for another couple of months! The rest of our time this weekend has been spent reorganizing, decluttering, pitching and CLEANING!! Some of my favorite things..literally! I know...its a sickness! We have even reorganized are storage closet and boy does it feel GREAT!! Thanks again G and G Z for keeping Layna busy so that we could be so productive!!

21 Weeks

Here are the latest belly shots at 21 weeks. I have my ultrasound this Wen and we are very excited bout that! The kiddos at my school had fun guessing boy/girl, due date and weight of the newest Nelson Baby- with the promise of a wonderful prize to the one who guesses most correctly. Overall I am feeling pretty good. Our big project this weekend is getting Layna's 'Big Girl' room ready!! Pictures will be posted as soon as its finished!
