Bennett's Nursery and others...

Here are a few snapshots of Bennett's nursery! Don't have everything hung up yet but getting there....Rita gave me several Radio Flyer miniatures I'm planning on putting on a shelf. Also, gonna throw some of Mack's babseball things in there. He has the coolest collection of several of the balls he pitched with in high school, all with little scribbles on them about who they were playing and who he happened to strike out that game:) I love it...He's gonna build a little dispaly shelf to put them on which I think will look really cool. Just have to note my thriftiness...I fell in love with the wall murals that matched this bedding with the retro tricycle, scooter and wagon. I found a Radio Flyer tricycle that I wanted to get eventually that I thought would look so neat in there. Soooo, i was at my friend Alisha's house-going through her maternity clothes and little girl clothes before they had their moving sale. When I spotted a Retro Radio Flyer tricyle in the corner, my eyes lit up! I thought-it couldn't hurt to ask and so I did...'are you selling that tricyle?' to which she replied 'I'd sell my vehicle if someone offered me enough for it'..lol, love her. So I asked how much she wanted for it(I don't think Jamie wanted to get rid of it for the girls' sake) but they both said $15 and I said wootwoot! SCORE!

And here is my hospital gown I made! So excited not to be wearing little blue pyramids this time! Maybe not what I should be worried about, but seriously? could hospital gowns be any more hideous?! pattern found here:http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/hospitalgown.php

And this is me at 36 weeks. I go back to the doctor Wednesday and am anxious to hear what he has to say. I'm getting so ready to meet Bennett and at the same time, a little nervous to have 2:)

34 weeks

Well, I made my doctor's visit yesterday-along with miss priss who decided to make her presence known with a VERY stinky diaper while we were there :/. He said I was making some progress and stated 'you'll probably make it 2 more weeks...' umm, excuse me? So, i say-'So, I won't be making it til July 3rd?' to which he replies-'i can't say for sure, but you're moving right along.'. Oh my. I've been feeling like maybe he would be early but I was giving myself another 3 weeks...and who knows? He may not come til the 3rd, BUT, when the doc is saying 2 weeks, that's a good indication. so, now it's time to get down to business-for real. At least his nursery is ready-mostly. Gotta get car seat in...I got some of my pjs together last night. I think I was nesting a little...stayed up til 11:30 folding clothes. Tagged some consignment items for the Dittos for Kiddos fall sale(http://dittosforkiddos.net/) trying to get it done before Bennett gets here. Hoping to pull in a little extra cash for my maternity leave. I am now 36 weeks and don't have a 35 week pic...but above is my humungous belly from 34 weeks.

I can't wait to meet my little baby boy!
