Progress!


We got our new bookshelves painted and on the nursery wall!  I have to say, I really love them.  And whoever thought of using Ikea spice racks as book storage is genius.  (I wish I could say it was me)  We will probably add another set at the bottom, but I have to regain mobility again.  Apparently it only takes minimal effort these days to render my body completely useless. 

I also sewed up a quick crib skirt, I am *this close* to finishing up the baby quilt and I am halfway done with a less sucky ruffled lampshade for my beloved milk glass lamp.  I'd show you now, but I think it's so much better to see them finished, don't you agree?

I'm now 30 weeks pregnant and working on the nursery helps to dissolve the anxieties I have about giving birth in two months.  I will be spending a lot of time in here...

That looks soooo cute! What an adorable nursery!

And about giving birth in a couple months... YOU CAN DO IT! :) I remember the high anxiety I felt before having Brielle. I was sooo nervous, and it ended up being a really horrendous labor, birth, and recovery experience. But then when I was pregnant with Aislynn, I wasn't nervous about it AT ALL. Even though it was so hard with Brielle, it taught me how manageable and empowering it is to give birth. I was actually excited to do it again :) I can't wait to hear about your experience! I bet it will be wonderful.

Awww, it's looking adorable! And yes - Ikea spice racks to hold books IS ingenious. I just wish we had an Ikea around here so I could be a copycat, too! Hahaha! :)
