Baby's Room

Yay!!! The baby's room is 95% complete! We just have a shelf to hang over the changing table and then we're done. So, I thought I would post the pics of the room, including the custom piece of artwork that I made out of three gift bags from the baby shower and a few pieces of tissue paper.

The dresser and hutch in the baby's room.

A closer view of the hutch. The top of the hutch is lined with all of the different rubber duckies from my baby shower.

My favorite rubber ducky has to be the Cat Ducky.

That's a long line of duckies!

I just love this Ducky bank! A client of mine gave it to me. I love that it has a toy chicken next to it!

A sweet little plant I picked up from one of my favorite little stores in downtown Carson.

The baby's crib, complete with the artwork I created tonight.

A peek into the crib.

The comfy chair to comfort little Boss. We have a glider in our room for those late night feedings!

I picked up this sweet little chair at a garage sale for $3!!! It matches the rest of the furniture perfectly!

We're at the end of only 5 days left before my due date. Yesterday was my official last day at work. I'm hoping that by being off and really being able to relax/go into nesting mode will help this baby move down into position so we can get the show on the road! I bought an exercise ball today. They are good for doubling as birthing balls, and if you sit on them and bounce gently, they are also supposed to help the baby move into position. I bounced for an hour today.

Adam's parents bought us a camcorder for our Baby Shower gift. We went and picked it out today. It's charging right now, but I'm looking forward to playing around with it tomorrow. We're also going to finish cleaning the rest of the house. Adam wants to take everything out of the garage tomorrow and organize everything. We also had some mice staying with us for awhile, so he's going to clean that mess up, too. While he does that, I'll be super cleaning the fridge and pantry. I'm going to take everything out of the fridge, wipe it all down from top to bottom and then only put back the good stuff. In the pantry, I want to take everything off the shelves and reorganize it so I can actually find what I want.

Today, October 31, is technically not Halloween for Carson City. Because Nevada was admitted into the Union on October 31, 1864, the state of Nevada, and more specifically, Carson City, celebrates Nevada Day instead. What does this mean for us as far as trick-or-treaters go? Well, Carson City had it's "official" trick-or-treating night yesterday. How did it go? Since we live in THE neighborhood for trick-or-treating, we had an amazing turn out! Between 6pm and 8pm, we had 234 kids show up! We went through four COSTCO sized bags of candy. We had to shut down at 8pm because we ran out of candy! Between 7:20 and 7:30 alone, we had 63 kids!!!! The best costumes of the night went to the KISS army and the Pacman accompanied by his Ghost friend from the video game. It was a great night and we had a great time passing out candy with our friends Josh and Katrina (who brought their 3 month old, Jack, who was dressed up as a dinosaur).

That's it for now. Hope everyone is having a great weekend and I'll keep you all updated about when Boss decides to make an appearance!

Sure wish we could be there with you this week!

You've done a great job with baby's room, and it sounds as if you and Adam are in high spirits and ready for whoever comes!

Lots of love from Arizona, unfiltered by distance.
