It's Getting There...

The few weeks we have been working hard on baby boy's room.

We started with this...

And after moving and selling all of our office furniture,
we started the work on the room.

Dan worked hard on the bead board for the bottom half
of the room. It wasn't easy with the crazy walls this
old house has, but I think it turned out pretty
professional looking.

And then the painting began...
My dad came over and painted the whole room-
from the ceiling to the windows to the closet!

Dan even built me another little shelf in the closet- how handy is that!

Now the fun part can begin-
the dresser is in the basement waiting to be carried up,
the chair is waiting its' fate to see if it will fit in the little corner or not,
and the crib that was supposedly on back order until October should be here next week!

I can't wait to see how it all comes together!

Baby Gender Reveal

Last month, we had our ultrasound and were able to find
out if we are having a boy or girl in November.

The night before I made some cupcakes...
I had to be very careful to not mix up the
pink and the blue- wouldn't that be sad if I got them confused? :)

First, I tried putting the chocolate disks in the batter
before I baked them.
Which sort of worked, but some were hard to see, especially
the pink ones.

So, plan B was to dig out a piece of the cupcake
after it was baked and stick in the chocolate disk.
Worked like a charm.

My mom had bought some balloons and
there were some gifts for the little one...

And then, after lunch, it was finally time to reveal what it would be...


I took some videos of my mom and dad finding out.
I love their reactions!
