Baby Room!

We finally decided that with this being the official "full term" week of pregnancy, we should finish up the baby room. A fresh coat of light green paint, a new light fixture, cleaning, and new blinds. All the baby things organized.


A nice cozy nook with a twin bed...I see endless possibilities for napping, playing, resting, hanging out here.


Of course all the pets had to check it out. Lucy thinks the changing pad is really a cozy cat bed. Wilco thinks the stuffed animals are dog toys. Our kids are destined to have blankets rather than stuffed animals as their comfort items at this rate...


A lovely handmade quilt (thanks AnnaMae!) in bright colors matches the posters we decided to put on the wall. Posters from...the Pagosa Springs Wool Festival. Hee. Every year we've been they have a gorgeous colorful poster, signed and numbered. So, sheep, angora goats, and alpacas in bright colors, perfect for the baby, right?


We still need to buy a few things, but mostly we're set. I have a bag with things in it to take all ready too. Seems like this has gone so fast, but also, so slow. A time warp of sorts.


I think we're ready to meet the baby. Our daughter. Exciting, scary, new, fun, so many things. I can't wait.

OH! So exciting! :)

Our kid will be stuffed animal less too. The dogs, they love the stuffed animals. Love to shred them. :)

What a sweet baby room! You will definitely make use of that twin bed. We had a spare little mattress on the floor in Owen's first room and it was great for sleeping near when he was sick and for the parent who was trying to quiet the baby to be away from the parent who was sleeping.

That's a lot of tails in that room! Hee hee! If you're concerned about Lucy napping on the changing pad, try sticking tin foil on it til the little one arrives. That's how we taught Squeaky that the crib was NOT a delux cat bed! Ha ha!

You think the pregnancy went by fast? Just wait chica, you'll sneeze and the little girl will be 18!
