Baby's Room...Part One

I am only going to include partial pictures of the baby's room. Which will mainly only be the bedding/crib. The whole room is not quite completed. Sean and I need to figure out the flooring situation in the room. See some renter before us was obviously raised by wolves (and wolves that smoked at that!). So we (or more accurately Sean) have spent time cleaning the walls/ceiling and then repainting. The floor is also pretty disgusting. I have mopped and mopped the floors and they still seem to be filthy! So needless to say, Sean and I are on the lookout for different flooring. We looked at Lowe's the other day and found a few area rugs that would work, but not necessarily match; and some carpet, but I thought that it would give my baby rug burn! are the pictures of the bedding (and what little bit you can see of the room). I will follow up with pictures of what I have done on my next post. To be honest, I have the pictures of the dressers (all full of tiny clothes!), but I don't have my camera with me. So, without further ado, may I introduce my baby's bedding and crib :)

Oh and I have to mention that when I was putting the mobile together Bruno kept barking at me. See he likes bears (or really any stuffed animal), so he figures it is for him when he sees one. I will have to post a picture of the bassinett in my next post as well, for there is a little pink teddy bear (thanks Kathy!!!) that is soooo soft. Bruno also sat and barked at that bear for a day or two!

Baby Shower!!!

I should just change the title of my blog to "When I Get Around To It!" I have been meaning to do this post awhile ago, but I don't get a very good internet connection at my house, so when uploading images I have found it best to wait until I am somewhere with better reception.

My wonderful sister-in-law, Lauren, threw me a wonderful baby shower! She did such a wonderful job and I am so grateful. THANK YOU SO MUCH LAUREN!!! The shower ended up being a lot smaller than we anticipated as several ladies were sick and unable to make it, but it was still a blast. Lauren decorated the mantel with a bunch of onesies. The food was wonderful; cucumber sandwiches, roll-ups, fruit kabobs, this wonderfully AWESOME marinated cheese & crackers, and some delicious punch (complete with a beautiful ice mold with punch/strawberries/mint). Some pictures for your viewing pleasure (I apologize for the order, apparently Blogger likes them in this order better):

We then played two games. One was a bunch of ultrasound pictures where we had to guess the body part(s). Needless to say, it was fun and hilarious! My best friend, Monica, won the game with the most correct answers. The next game was to guess how big my belly was (with ribbon). Lauren and I went out of the room to put ribbon around my belly to see how big it was. We then waited for everyone to cut of a piece of ribbon symbolizing how big they thought my belly was. This was quite humorous; though I could see how another woman could get upset/offended. My former next door neighbor's grand-daughter won the prize...she had the ribbon just a hair larger than I was. My mom (who kept announcing how HUGE she thought I was) got second to last I guess she is right if she thinks I am that big. You could have almost gone around my belly twice!

I also have pictures of all of my gifts, but that would take forever to upload...not to mention bore you. Plus who knows where blogger would put them, and then you may be incredibly confused about what kind of shower Lauren threw me...traditional? non-traditional? Who opens presents first, then eats cake, and then eats the food??? I'll do another post with a few of my favorite presents :) Plus, pics of the baby's room!!!
