3rd Trimester

Well as of yesterday (according to What to Expect When You're Expecting) or as of last week (according to Your Pregnancy Week by Week) I officially entered my third trimester!

How unbelievably crazy is that?! Where does the time go?

I've heard that these last 12 weeks (give or take) will slow down. I'm sure they will, but with being out of school and knowing how summer FLIES by, they might not!

Either way it is hard to believe that Warner will be here in 12 weeks!

I'm excited to have some upcoming baby showers and to hopefully finish the nursery. I'm impatiently patiently waiting on some important pieces of the nursery to arrive...

That's about all going on my way.

Oh and tomorrow is my 1 hour glucose test. Please pray I pass. I love cake too much!

Hopefully I'll get some pictures up here soon!

Sorry, faithful followers. I know I disappoint you... :) Pin It

Warner's Wardrobe

How many mothers of little boys have noticed that when you walk into a store the girl section is big and filled to the max with the cutest clothes and then the boy section is small and usually in the back or on the side and has considerably less?!

Discrimination I tell you! :)

I'll admit - Girl clothes are much cuter than boy clothes. If you read my previous post you already know that I am not in to sports clothes. Sure I have a complete man's man for a husband. He would have no problem dressing our child in outfits that say "Little Slugger" or "Mommy's Little All Star."

Once again I do not have any problem with those of you who like these things. Everyone is different and I just don't care for those things.

I am sure in a blink of an eye he will want to wear character clothing (i.e whatever Disney movie is out at the time) and jerseys. I will totally promote his independence in wanting to pick out his own clothes.

However, for the time being, I will do my best to make sure I have one cute, stylish little man on my hands while he'll let me!

So far Warner has some cute things!

Check on these graphic tees from Old Navy. Buy one, get one free. A little boy in my class this year had the "Boy Next Door" one. He was one of those little boys that was dressed adorably everyday. I wouldn't mind if Warner turned out like him!

Some cute PJs from Old Navy.

He has been showered already with onesies and PJs from friends, former students, and coworkers. Thanks Frankie, Emily, and Margaret!
I also had one of my Mom's give me a ton of stuff from her 3 boys. I didn't get a picture, but there are some super cute things!

My mom bought him a bunch of Polo stuff.
He is definitely his father's son.

Another cute purchase from Sue Sue.

My purchase today.
How adorable are these corduroy overalls? I'm in love with them.
I also bought him a basic John John, but it's getting monogrammed so no picture yet. I'm waiting to see if I should put his whole name or his initials. The lady is sending me some samples, because the letter Z can get funky in a monogram!

I think I better be careful! I could spend entirely too much money! I'm excited to continue his stylish wardrobe!

The Nursery: Thus Far

Every mom-to-be dreams of their baby's nursery, right?

Well maybe not every mom, but I sure did.

Since I was convinced from the beginning it was a girl I had everything picked out in my mind. I knew exactly what I wanted it to look like. When I found out it was a boy the nursery became something that I began obsessing about. I am not a football/baseball/sports theme nursery kind of girl. In fact, I find it hard to work with themes at all when it comes to decorating. You can either take it way too far or can't find anything.
I stick to simple.

For Warner's room I wanted to make sure that I made it bright, fun, and sweet all at the same time, but I didn't want it to be too frilly or not boy enough.

Do you see my obsession?

His room is FAR from done -- don't even ask about the bedding -- we'll discuss that in a later blog. But, I wanted to show what we have so far.

Mind you, this is very little. There is A LOT more to tackle.

(The lighting on these is not great -- I was taking them at night)

The Crib:
When I was first thinking about a crib I really wanted a white spindle crib. Very old school, vintage feel. I thought this would be adorable, but decided to hold off until we found out for sure what we were having. Luckily, I held off. I think Dave would have found the spindle a bit too girly for little Warner!
We both agreed on this crib. It is very simple. I am not big in to the convertible cribs (no offense to those of you out there who are). I like to have symmetry on both sides.

I am really anal...

The Light:
We found this cool light at IKEA about a month ago. Dave and I both really liked it. I knew there wasn't much use in having a fan in Warner's room. More than likely (fingers crossed) we'll be out of this house by next summer anyway.

This light proved to be a bit of a challenge to install, but thanks to my Daddy, Dave, Mr. Bob, and a medallion we made it happen!

The Paintings:
I completely fell in love with these the minute I saw them on Etsy. They are nursery rhymes made up with different textures of prints. There is a little closer of a picture below.

I also think we are going to copy Holly and do a family tree on one of the walls. I hope you don't mind, Holly. Our tree will only be the 3 of us though!

Here are some more views of the nursery.
The room is kind of oddly shaped and not as big as I thought, so it was hard to take pictures of everything.

The blue on the wall is actually a little brighter in person. We plan to use blues, greens, and oranges throughout the nursery. There is still A TON to be done. My mom was gracious enough to buy us a rocking chair that is being painting a light lime green color. It will most likely go by the window. We still have curtains, bedding (it's been ordered), the orange mirror that is sitting on the back porch drying, and the details left to go.

And we all know its the details that make the room!

We're getting there...

Lake Living

This weekend we headed out on the lake.
Ross was adorable in her massive life jacket! She did so well!
(I meant to rotate the picture -- sorry)

We made our way to Spinners for lunch...

Where we met up with the newlyweds.

The day proved to be quite the adventure, but it was fun nonetheless!

Here's to summer!!
