Getting the Nursery ready

Today is off to a great start! Darren and I decided to get started on the nursery now that we have the crib set and all of the colors picked out for the room. I think in the end I'm going to like his room the best in the house! Which I guess is a good thing since I'm going to be spending so much time in there the next few years. We decided to go with a vintage cowboy/western theme. Shocking I know. But everything is just so cute cowboy and farm like.

Here are the before pictures- The room is pretty small, but I think once we're done with it, it's going to look great!


Becky, My mom and Bob all come over the help and to hang out. After working in the nursery for awhile we decided to take a break and put together the stroller. Look how big my belly is getting! It was so much fun decorating and getting idea's for what else to do. I can't wait till it's finished and he's here.
Here is Darren working hard on the crib

And the final crib product, isn't it beautiful?! I can't believe Darren is so talented and can create things like this. I absolutely love it, and I hope our little guy does too. Who knows maybe one day it will be a family heirloom or something. So now all that is left to do is put up our new molding and chair rail this week, finish the changing table, make curtains and set up a few secret final touches. 7 weeks and counting down, now our little guy is going to have a room to come home to.

Shout out to Darren my wonderful, loving, & talented hubby! What would I do with out you?

YOu guys are amazing!!! I really wanted Gabe to build our babys crib, but we decided we were too lazy and it was too much work!!! Way to go Darren - its BEAUTIFUL. And Jules - could you be any cuter???? The teensy baby bump will melt off you - dont worry. As far as pregnant women go, you have to be in the like top 5% for maintaining cuteness. Look at Britt - you girls dont do pregnancy frumpy! I cant wait to meet your little guy!!!! ps - this was a response to the last few posts - just played catch up! I remember all too well that last trimester insomnia, rib pain, and instability. THE END IS NEAR!!!!
