Dear Santa

Does anyone else have a kid that keeps watching commercials or going to a friend's house and seeing something new that they want for Christmas?  Especially when you're DONE shopping??

We had to have D tell us his list so we can write it out - but when we go see Santa, we just hope he sticks with it :)

With all this holiday and baby stuff coming to a head at once, life is getting pretty expensive these days.  But it will all be worth it.  We're 7 weeks away from baby...and just 2 from Christmas.  YIPES!

Robot Nursery

It's been awhile - as my mother has pointed out.  I never thought I'd go so long between posts but life gets in the way sometimes!  Like when you're pregnant! :)  I'm 31 weeks today and can't believe how fast time is flying.

We're busy getting ready for the new guy.  We've been cleaning closets - painting the nursery - washing car seat covers - digging things out of my in-law's basement - etc. 

I realized I never really revealed on here what the nursery will be.  There was no vote this time, sorry :).  We decided to do a retro robot theme!  It's been really fun to think about and I'm trying to get things together in time but time and money seems to go QUICK.  I'm making the baby quilt myself and made pretty good progress.  Thanks so much to my mom who has agreed to quilt it for me once I have the top pieced together.

Now we're working on wall art, the rest of the crib bedding and everything else in between.  I had planned to do a lot more on my own - but by the time I finish the quilt and the mobile I may be wiped out.  So I'm employing full time!

Wish us luck!  Pics to come!
