Baby Shower

My baby shower was at the end of May, but my wonderful cousin who also happens to be a professional photographer {Kelly Lapp Photography} captured some moments from the day I just had to share. It was so fun to spend a day anticipating and celebrating our baby girl. Getting all the baby gear and adorable little clothes just made me that much more excited for her to arrive! I'm so thankful for the support system of friends and family who are surrounding us during this exciting stage of life!

Nursery in Progress

In the last week or two, we have gotten serious about working on the nursery. Which is a good thing considering I'm just about 34 weeks pregnant! I have had a vision of what I want the nursery to look like for most of my pregnancy, it's just finding all the pieces and doing all the work to make it come to life!! 

After our baby shower at the end of May, we were motivated to start finding homes for all of our gifts. That lead to a day of hanging bookshelves and curtains ( thank you IKEA) 

Then this week amazing Mom came over and helped me paint the birch tree wall for behind the crib. After searching high and low for the perfect wallpaper, I decided $300 was not worth it for an 8ft wall and I bought a stencil off of for $60. It was daunting and tedious, but with my moms help and talent, the wall turned out perfect! 

Now we're on the hunt for an affordable but cute glider and waiting for our crib to be delivered before the nursery is complete! We're getting ready for you baby girl!
