Preparing for Baby

It's still so surprising to me how little we have done for this baby's arrival as compared to preparing for Ellington's arrival.  But I must say, it actually is a lot more enjoyable just being really laid back about it all.  We still don't have a name picked out and have I spent almost zero time researching anything baby product related. I also haven't read any books about pregnancy or babies.  I am just going with the flow and I know it will all be fine. :)  As a whole I am enjoying this pregnancy soooo much more than I did the first time.  Maybe I should do a whole post about that!  

Last weekend we were able to check a few things off of our small to-do list.  We had the baby's room painted (it was previously the room of a little boy and the walls had definitely seen better days!), so once that was done we were ready to move forward a little bit.

Robert and Ellington put together the dresser/changing table.  She loooooves helping her Daddy with projects!

On Sunday afternoon they put together the crib!  We got a new crib because the one that we got with Ellington was very cheap and just not the greatest.  We wanted one that was durable and that we could use for awhile!

Sweet big sister :)

Ellington requested the one below.  Ha.  She thinks she is a model I am pretty sure.

What a great job they did! :)

Wednesday I had a diaper shower at work.  Yay!  If I could have picked any kind of shower, that is definitely what I would have picked!

Ellington enjoyed the balloons from the party :)

It seems like a loooong time ago when we found out that we were having a baby yet I can't believe how fast it has gone!  I was shocked when I went to my doctor's appt yesterday and she said I would start coming in every two weeks now.  Wow!  We are getting close. :)  We are so excited and can't wait to meet our new little girl!


  1. I had a dream the other night we were trying to go shopping for baby stuff for you but I couldn't find a baby sitter.

  2. All the newborn needs is pjs, diapers, and a place to sleep :)
    Ellington's striped dress is super cute!
    Can't believe you are going every two weeks!

  3. Yea!!! Room is going to be so cute and Ellington sure will be a pretty big sister.
