Getting Ready for Darby!

I figured it was about time to share some updated pictures of the nursery! I've been busy putting the finishing touches on it. There are still a few things I need to do - I want to find a corner wall shelf to go behind the crib and some black and white pictures - I'm thinking I will use ones of Darby when she is first born - for 3 shabby chic white frames I have for the wall.

I've fixed the curtains with tie backs -

.. and the changing pad/cover are ready with the wipe warmer (no wipes in it yet!) and today I hung the shelf . The 3 shabby chic white frames will hang on this wall too.

My friends Andie and Mandie (they're twins!) from college sent this cute "Bless This Baby" wall hanging that just matches the room perfectly!

Darby's crib is all set to go with her cute mobile (from my one in a million friend Angela and her hubby Josh) and some cute dolls/stuffed animals from friends and family!

Here is the bouncer I put together and is all ready and waiting for Darby! (From our friends Rachelle and Mark, who are expecting a cute little boy - Jackson James - in August!!)

Here is the Sweet Peace Infant Soothing Center - aka the swing!! (from Eric's Nanna, Aunt Sherri and cousin Jordyn) It is SO cool, we can't wait to get Darby home so she can swing, we know she is going to LOVE it!

Here are the outfits I got, one of which Darby will wear home from the hospital! The one on the left is a newborn size, and the other is 0-3 months. I have heard that a lot of times depending on the baby's size, the newborn sizes can either be too big, or not big enough. I'll just be prepared either way! It's hard to see but there is also a cute pair of frilly socks and a bonnet!

I think I say this every time I post, but I just can't believe we are already working on my 34th week!! I am still feeling pretty good, just tired and have been getting bad heartburn. Sleeping isn't easy, but really since I'm not working I can't complain because I can rest whenever I need to during the day!

The other night (and last night too) Darby has had the hiccups! It's so funny to watch her bouncing in there with the hiccups. I would think it would be horribly uncomfortable for her, but I guess it's not! Eric was feeling her hiccup on Friday night and said to me "Aww, I want her out already so I can HOLD her!" It was so cute.

We don't have much longer to wait!!

Everything looks amazing! I love everything about Darby's nursery! I hope mine turns out half as good as yours! I am glad to hear you are doing good. Keep us posted, and maybe another belly picture! =)

Annie - I am so excited for you. I love the nesting instinct. We're all ready for our Munchkin now, too. Can't wait to see pics of Darby!

I LOVE Darby's room! Seriously - if I have a girl I might just copy every square inch of it!
Can't wait until you and hubby get to meet her!
