Slowly But Surely

Slowly but surely we are getting ready for this baby!  The crib mattress has been raised (I hardly remember it being so high!) Clothes are washed. Swing and bouncies are cleaned up.  We bought a 2nd monitor (because we still like to know what Maria is up to!)  Car seat bases are installed in both cars.  Maria’s bag is packed (mine is still a work in progress)

Maria is also moved out of the baby’s room and in her new big girl room. It was a long process, since we removed the horrible plaid wallpaper. Once that was done, we had the 2 light fixtures and separate ceiling fan, replaced with one ceiling fan/light.  THEN we had all the walls refinished (because the wallpaper did not come off well) and painted.

BUT end result, she loves it. I still want to get some more things on the wall, but I just love how it turned out. We found the furniture for a steal on Craigslist, except for the bookshelf which is from Ikea.  My mom made the quilt, which I love!  She really loves having her own space, unless it turns into a time-out zone! 🙂
