Nursery Pics

It's been a slow Monday.  I had a rough night of sleep, but I think that is just par for the course during the latter part of the 3rd trimester.   At my appt last Thursday, he was 6 lb 3 oz.  I saw another OB because I accidentally went on the wrong day (my brain is turning to mush).  He said my cervix was like a green apple and it needs to ripen up.  Even though my OB predicted that he is going to come early, I have a sneaking suspicion that he is going to take his sweet time.   I went to a natural childbirth class on Saturday that my doula taught.  It made me a little more confident about my ability to handle a non-medicated birth.   It's going to be so interesting to see how the birthing process goes.
Without further ado, here are pics of Baby W's nursery!

The quilt above was my baby quilt that my cousin's grandmother made for me.  My mom gave it to me at my shower and my cousin was the one who hosted the shower for me, so it was really sweet.
So I suppose my theme is stripes and a mix of vintage and modern touches.  The biggest expenditure was the dresser, so I hope we use it for a long time.   We painted the room Benjamin Moore Wickham Gray.  I also installed FLOR carpet tiles - Tidal Blue - I've been real happy with it.

The last thing we are going to do in the nursery is install a ceiling fan and then we are done! It's been fun decorating it and I've also been napping in the twin bed.  Since our house is so small, I still use the this room's closet for my clothes and get dressed in there.  The nursery is right across from our bedroom, so we won't be far from our baby - don't think I will need a monitor.

On Thursday, I will be 37 weeks - full-term!  I can't believe that I've made it this far.  So very grateful and praying for a smooth labor and delivery.
