The Nursery!!!

Here is the progress on the nursery. It still needs a lot of work, but enjoy the pictures of the progress~~~
The closet door, there will be paneling on the bottom half of the room, that's why the paint is not all the way down.
The nursery window!!

The Beautiful crib awaiting the bedding!!!


There will be a matching upholstered chair next to the night stand. It matches the bedding! :)
Her very own dresser! The mirrors will go on the wall in front of the dresser.

View from the door to the closet

99 Days!!!

That's right folks!!! I am now in the double digits!!! 99 more days until Jonathan and I get to meet our sweet little girl Addison Ryanne "Addy". It is amazing to think that even though right now, our lives have changed very little, except for the way I sleep, or lack there of, in just a few weeks (approximately 12-14, unless she is stubborn like her daddy(hehe)) we will have a little one in our arms. This is so amazing to me. To know that God has entrusted to us this little life to bring up and raise in the fear and admonition of the Lord, is simply breathtaking!!! I know all too well that I have no clue what lies ahead of me, but I am up for the challenge and the love and the spit up and the sleepless nights. I think some nights I might just lie awake and stare at her sleeping, just because I know she is going to be beautiful and perfect in my eyes. In the sonograms, I think she looks like me, but we shall see. There is nothing wrong with her looking like her handsome daddy!!! My prayer these days is for our health. Not only mine and Addy's but for Jonathan as well as he is taking on some heavy loads around the house. Things I either cannot lift or change (the cat litter), and it is year end at his job really soon. So, not only stress at home with finishing the nursery (pictures REALLY soon, I promise) but also at work.
I have another sonogram on August 12th. Because I am still monitored by my oncologist, my baby doctor labeled me "high risk." All that really means for me is that I get to see sweet Addy a lot more! Hey, I'll take every chance I can get to see her stretch, yawn, move and grow.
Time has flown by. I have been told that the last few months will drag, but I am in the seventh month, and I have A LOT still to do, so I am happy that I have time. But, she will be here before I know it!!! :)
My next post will be of the pictures of Addy's room and closet (clothes). Stay tuned!!!
