Ali's Nursery


KK and I sweated our asses off this weekend (literally, it was 100 DEGREES today) and put together Ali's nursery!


It is so bright and cheery, and is exactly what I wanted it to be... I love the crib I picked out and how warm the bedding set is...We kept talking about how excited finishing it made us and gave us the reality that she will be here in just 7 weeks! The only thing left to do now is add the curtains that my momma is sewing, and put away all the clothes my good friend Jenn has donated to us. We are so lucky- Jenn has a daughter who is about 13 months older than Ali, which means hand-me-down city! She is a cutie pie dresser too, it's awesome! She has already given me 2 boxes of clothes.. she has another huge box waiting at her house for me to pick up..believe me, I am so thankful for great friends!


We also signed up for "Labor and Delivery" Classes at the hospital on Friday- they will start July 9th and we will go every Wednesday for 3 weeks. I have mixed emotions about taking the classes, but my doctor highly recommended that we take them, being 1st time parents and all. I feel like I have a general understanding of the whole labor process, while Kris is pretty much clueless. I'm hoping it isn't too cheesy and that we learn something- at least what to expect and to prepare us somewhat for what we hope is a normal birthing experience- and that my husband has patience and can get through them! Knowing our luck some freak show couple will magnetize themselves to us and make this experience as strange as everything else we do... but at least we'll have some idea of how to have a baby-right?


This week on Thursday we are leaving to go up to our cabin for the 4th of July weekend... I'm so glad we decided on that instead of spending it here in town. It will be nice to be gone and just relax- I find myself jonesin' to deep clean my house with nothing to do but stay inside the air conditioning. My plan is to read the 3 books I rented from the library today and plop my rhino butt into the river. Other than that- I'm just enjoying the summer and the time with Kris before our sweet baby joins the crowd!

Ali's room is soooo cute!

You should also sign up for KMC's carseat safety check/class. It's also offered through their education classes, just call and make an appointment...it was well worth it as I didn't have a clue how to properly install a carseat. The gal who helped me mentioned that 87% of carseats are installed incorrectly. Just an idea...I thought it was a pretty cool service. :-)

Have a great time this weekend!!
