20w0d: Whoooah We're halfway therrre!

Yep, I have had "Livin On A Prayer" Playing through my head all day! I can't believe we are HALFWAY through this pregnancy! In just 4 short weeks, we are in viability land people! Things have been going so well and we are SO thankful and feel so blessed!! We pretty much finished the nursery (we had a blast putting it together!)We only need a few things to make his room complete and for us to be able to bring him home. By the time August gets here we will be totally finished and just waiting on him to arrive I bet! Here are a few shots of the nursery:
The other letter project I was working on for his room


We loved this quote!
This dude has TWO bathrobes! :)
This kitchen cabinet was on clearance so I re-purposed it!
                                          
Don't mind the shoes, I have my great-nephews for the summer!
                                      
  A place for me to sleep if he's being too fussy
                                         
Greyson has more clothes than me!
                              



I hope y'all like it! We had so much fun coming up with what we wanted and getting it to fit just the way we wanted in our space.. Oh and after hearing what you guys said about the rockers, we decided to move the glider/ottoman combo into the nursery:
This glider is super comfy!


 and this is the set up we have in our room:
This is John's favorite piece of furniture, Bruizer's too!

I love this bassinet! The Moses basket comes out!
I am guessing this set up will be just fine for several months, until we are ready to move him to the other side of the house to the nursery... And just so you get an idea on how far the nursery is from our room this is the lay out of our house:


As you can see, not the closest set up right?! So yeah, we are definitely rooming in for several months, until we feel comfortable with him being in the nursery that is.. Christy has been feeling good, her morning sickness is pretty much gone now (YAY!) so hopefully she will enjoy these last few months of pregnancy. Christy has also been getting things handled on the birth and hospital side of things. She "pre" pre-registered with the hospital she will be delivering at and everyone has a copy of the pre-birth order that needs one. Also she gave me some invaluable tips on traveling with a newborn by car since I have never done that before (Thanks Christy!!) I am sure she is gonna have to tell me lots of this stuff again though, LOL! I am still fighting the yuck that has had me down for the past 8 days.. I am finally feeling a bit better, but it's still pretty brutal.. I am hoping by day 10 I am in the home stretch of feeling back to normal...

Well that's about it for now, I hope y'all had a great 4th and are enjoying your weekend!!

    1. Jeni, you should come see the floor plan in person! :):) That long rectangle the master bath and kitchen is our enclosed back porch that we are going to make in to a fully enclosed air conditioned playroom (eventually!). I know isn't it crazy we are already blazing towards the 3rd trimester, EEK! :)

  5. You know, I wish we had built in some type of "if she gets fussy" sleeping because there are times we've needed it. But I think the nursery looks amazing. SO CUTE!

    1. John works 2nd shift so I definitely wanted a place in the nursery, I would feel bad if I am sleeping during the day knowing he was kept up all night! You could always put a cozy recliner in the nursery!

  10. I cant believe you guys are already 20 weeks! That seems so fast (although, I'm sure not as fast for you). I was behind a few posts and just his name - I LOVE IT!! Maybe I'm biased though since my little man's name is Graysen :) Great choice ;)
