Christmas time

So kinda crazy Christmas week. I had a Dr. appointment on Monday the 21. There I was told that my cervex is starting to thin out, so I was put on modified bed rest. That means I get to be lazy... Then we found out that Matt didn't have to work the night of the 23, so we went to his parents for Christmas eve. That was lots of fun. Then Christmas day we went over to Tyra's and opened gifts. Natalie got some too. She got some more clothes and a crib! Christie and Reid got her the crib and Trya and Derrick got her a mattress, Yay! After hanging out there for a while we went over to Matt's grandparents house. We had dinner and exchanged more gifts. Natalie got more clothes from Aunt Trish and family. And we taught cousin Mitchel Mah-jongg. Then Saturday we set up the crib. I am so thankful for everything.

Natalie's Room

So I was starting to stress out and worry that we wouldn't have enough time or the means to decorate Natalie's room before she got here. I was telling this to my mother-in-law this past week and she came to my "rescue". I had a paint color all picked out, just wasn't able to buy it. Christie came over and had an idea. She had some leftover paint from previous projects and I had the sample paints we had bought earlier. And with that we painted a wall.

She had some fabric, bought for curtains, and she transformed the windows. She also had some tulle leftover from wedding decorations. And so we completed the room. All we need now is furniture.

Chistmas Time

I found it a little hard to decorate for Christmas this year, having a small apartment and little money. I wanted to put up some sort of tree but that would mean completely rearranging everything, and that would be hard to do. Luckily, though I had forgotten about it, Christie brought over a Teddy Bear tree that fit perfectly. Then I received a package from my parents and family. I bought some candy canes and had some iridescent pipe cleaners that I twisted into curls to finish my Christmas decorating. It's not much but it will do this year.

Two months to go...

My due date is Jan. 30, so as of tomorrow, Dec. 5, I have 9 weeks left to my pregnancy. I feel totally unprepared for Natalie to come into this world. I mean yes I'm ready for her emotionally, I think, but nowhere near ready for her physically. As of this moment her room is still a catch-all, she has nowhere to sleep, and I have no changing table (though I can probably use my bed for now). I waned to paint the room, before my birthday, but that didn't happen. I just feel like these past seven month have flown by. The only big ticket item I have is he travel system. So at least I have a car seat to bring her home. I guess I'm just a little worried and nervous that all I want to get done won't get done in time.
