3 months left

Can you believe it??!! We only have 3 more months until our little biscuit arrives.
As for me, things are going well. I am trying to keep up my walks at least 5 times a week. My dessert cravings have died down a little, at least I hope. My feet are a little puffy at night and my fingers swell during my morning walk. But nothing that is not normal. I have kept up eating as much spicy food as I want and it does not seem to effect our little guy. I received the results from the glucose test which were normal as well as the blood count. I have been a bit concerned about my gums and teeth since I have super sensitive gums that bleed easily. But all is well, I had a cleaning this week and everything checked out okay.
The baby kicks quite a bit but seems to be rocked to sleep when I am out and about or on a walk. He is about 2.5 pounds now and probably about 16 inches long head to toe. The prego books say he should start blinking this week. Also, hiccups should come soon which may have already happened and I just didn't catch them. For you veggie lovers out there he is the size of a small cabbage. Interesting fact: Did you know that Brent saw a baby cabbage patch kid being born when he was a kid? :)

We start our Prepared Childbirth Classes soon. Brent and I are also in the process of figuring out all the baby items that we need. Which things we can borrow, buy used and what we want new. We are thankful for all of you and can't wait for you to meet our sweetie pie.

Digging her style

My friend Corrie Sullivan has a great sense of style. She is from Dublin and I really dig her stuff.
I just found out she is currently working on a line of woodland themed clothes for babies! I love the fact that she recycles clothing and puts a new hip spin to it. Her blog is AWESOME! Check out her clothing line.
Here is some of her work:

Baby Nook Planning

Imagine with me. The colors we want to use are: green, yellow, blue, orange, and turquoise. All bright colors. The theme will be wilderness animals but with an artsy twist. Animals like bear, raccoon, fox, owl, moose, etc. Some items we like are below.
This crib bedding is very cute from Ikea. But the problem is they do not have sheets of this print. Only duvet covers and pillow cases.
This quilt is adorable but we would try to find one with only wilderness animals, if possible. It is from Crate and Barrel kids line - The Land of Nod.
This rug is also from Ikea. As you can tell some of the animals are not wilderness but I love how they outlined the animals instead of giving them a lot of detail.

Somehow it will all come together. It all starts with vision, right? I'll let you in on other ideas as I find them.

No move here

We decided to not take the 2 bedroom or the apartment management job. It is for the best. The skate park was just too much. We spent last weekend moving around the furniture in our 1 bedroom, making space for baby. We are really excited to make this work. If any of you have any stories about taking care of a new born in a 1 bedroom I would love to hear about it.
Now onto the baby nook planning...
