Room update!!

Sorry we have not been able to update sooner!!
Here are a few pictures of Briley's room...
Her tutu hairbow holder

We have accumulated more clothes.... :)

Wainscoting is done and crib is here!!

It's all coming together :)

I'm so proud of Daniel and all of his hard work for our little girl!

Here is a better view of the sleigh crib. We bought it at a unfinished furniture store in Ft. thing on the agenda is to stain the crib black.

What has been stained so far is the rocking chair!! Daniel was in the garage last night for over 3 hours staining it! We contemplated for a LONG time about the right mix of black stain and were very worried about how it would turn out. Well, I think it looks perfect and I can't wait for the crib and furniture to be stained too!

We had a wonderful spring break. We celebrated Daniel's 26th birthday with family and friends and I was able to get my swollen ankle to finally go down, YEA!! However, now that I'm back at work it is swollen again...what can you do!?

Here is our belly picture from last week...she has grown ALOT in the past few weeks. All my teachers at work said I had a growth spurt over spring break :)

Tomorrow we have our 4D sonogram at 9:30 a.m. I took a half day off work so please say a prayer she isn't camera shy and we can get some good pictures
of her. We will upload pictures from that as soon as we can!

Here is one last picture to wish you a happy Friday...

Gracie wanted her picture taken too!!

More renovations and fun in Canton!

Here are some updated pictures of the room..Daddy has been working hard as usual!

He added the chair rail above the wainscoting!!

Next on the agenda is to paint the wainscoting, corners, and chair rail.

He did get the ceiling painted white, which I love! We thought about maybe painting it pink as well, but I love the contrast from the white wainscoting, to the pink walls, to the white ceiling. As usual, Daddy did a WONDERFUL job. What would I do without my handy husband??

Along with baby room renovations, Daniel and I also made a trip to Canton this weekend. Our hope was to find an unfinished crib for Daniel to stain to match the furniture he is building...unfortunately we couldn't find a crib, but I did find a bunch of other little items that made me very happy :) If you have never been to Canton, YOU MUST GO. It was every woman's dream...rows upon rows of booths filled with ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING. I have never been so excited to shop in my life :) Daniel was very patient but I think next time he would prefer I go with a group of women. There was only so many times he could get excited with me about a hair bow!! So of course I want to share some pictures of my shopping extravaganza...

A sign for her room :)

Fun burp cloths!

A start to her enormous hair bow collection that I am predicting for the future!

An adorable bandanna dress that will grow with her as she grows...first it's a dress, then a dress with leggings, and then a shirt! I told Daniel how can we pass it's economical??

How could I resist bloomers that say "Gigi loves me"?? (my Mom's grandma name). Don't worry Nonnie (Daniel's Mom's grandma name) yours were special ordered that day and should be here by the end of the week ;)

An adorable pacifier clip with her name on it...yes I said her NAME!! We have finally come to a decision and spelling. The next picture will reveal it...

I'm sure my Mom is already on the phone ordering items to be monogrammed you Mom!

Our last and final purchase in Canton for the day was the...
...rocking chair!! Daniel and I love the idea of having an old fashioned rocking chair in her room. Daniel will stain this black to match the furniture and we already have our rocking chair pad that matches her bedding thanks to my Uncle Mark and Aunt Julie...thank you!!

Overall it was such a fun weekend shopping for BRILEY and I can't wait until we can find a crib and for Daniel to start building the furniture.

Hope everyone has a blessed week!

Daniel, Melissa, and Briley
