Thank you grandma!!

Charlotte's room is still a work in progress, but we recently received her bedding that grandma made for her. It is simply of a kind, and we love it. I know Charlotte will too! We know the walls are still quite bare, and have some ideas for them, but will wait a few weeks before we get out and about to start those projects. Here is a sneak peak though.

Flowers, polka dots, stripes...all kinds of fun patterns!!
You can't see the skirt too well, but it is striped with monochromatic flower pattern as a ruffled edge.
We will probably put her name over her crib with some fun lettering.

Close-up. The outside portion of the border is the same fabric as the pillow in the bed.

A dresser scarf to match too! We haven't put her picture in her frames much to do, so much to do! Thank you grandma and the Mickeletto family for the frames!
Accent pillow

The wall color is a bit off in this picture...the crib pictures are a little more true to the real color. The curtains are still to come.

Thank you grandma!! We LOVE how it turned out! One of a kind!!

Our precious gift has arrived!!

Counting down...3 weeks

We seem to be on the downward slope for Baby York's arrival. Officially, we have 3 weeks of pregnancy to go. We have no signs or indicators that she will be arriving early, or late for that matter. So for now, we patiently wait. George and I have both enjoyed having the last two weeks off of work, and we both dread returning to work tomorrow. We have been blessed to accomplish quite a bit over the break to prepare for our little girl's arrival, but yet looking back, and looking at the still lengthy to do list, it doesn't seem like we got enough done. Some of the things accomplished include; carseat is in the car, nursery trim is painted, nursery is arranged, clothes washed and put away, some of the last minute items have been purchased, etc. Things remaining to be done will hopefully be accomplished over the next week.

I continue to feel especially blessed. My pregnancy has gone so smoothly with few complications or concerns. I'd be lying if I said I felt wonderful all the time, I certainly have periods where I wear out quickly, or don't sleep well during the night, and the heartburn...OH! The heartburn!! But, all in all, I guess it comes with the last month of pregnancy. I have been exceedingly blessed with a husband who cares for me when I am weak, comforts me when I am scared, and lifts my spirits when I am down. I thank the Lord everyday for having such a wonderfully supportive mate.

We wanted to thank everyone for their kind words, encouragement, and support as we embark on this new adventure. It is humbling to think of all that everyone has done for us thus far, and the journey that is still to come.

Happy Birthday Caitlin!!!

Happy Birthday to our a whopping 8 year old niece!!
