Quick Update

I've been wanting to post for awhile but work and shopping and wrapping and wrangling have kept me pretty busy these days. I also keep forgetting my camera so I can't give you guys any new photos to look at :(
Everything is going well...I have almost got all the shopping done! We stuck to toys I knew Sebastian has been eyeing and will get some real use out of. Jonathan was a lot more difficult since he REFUSED to give me any ideas and has everything he could ever want. We both are those type of people who hate asking for people to buy us things, we would rather save our money and get it ourselves. So, needless to say, shopping for him has been quite an experience.

Santa's little elf!
I had been toying with the idea of not creating a nursery for our new little one and instead just putting both the babies together. However, after receiving a few items and seeing how packed Sebastian's room already is, we have changed our minds! Our home has four bedrooms: Master, Sebastian's Nursery, a guest bedroom and an office...guess who is getting a makeover?!?! Seeing as that I DO NOT DO work at home, I get enough between 8a-5p...and Jonathan is graduating in May 2013...we don't really have a need for an office and our need for a baby girl nursery is much, MUCH greater, the office is getting the boot! It will be a challenge to convert because it has become our catch-all room, but it gives us a reason to spring clean. I am excited for the challenge...designing and decorating Sebastian's room was so much fun, now getting to do a girly one will be equally enjoyable!

She is in there!
When I found out I was pregnant with Sebastian, I pretty much started designing his room immediately and had all 8 months to work out the details. This time, we have procrastinated a bit and we are left with four months to get it all done. Which may sound like a lot of time but for a mama who has a full time job, a daddy who is a full time student and the holidays looming and a 14 month old who has grumpy nights, it will go by in the blink of an eye!
So, we went to some baby stores this past weekend to look at furniture for the room. It is a tight room, so we are trying to make sure we get furniture that will fit and be practical all while remembering she is a girl and needs to be spoiled!
It was a very productive Saturday...we not only found the perfect furniture but also ordered it...we got a white crib with a canopy top and dresser to match, along with a VERY comfy glider (for Jonathan and those late nights :) they will be arriving in 2 weeks so I'll be sure to post pictures when they are all set up! My mom and dad are the BEST EVER and helped us with everything!

Saturday Morning's breakfast consisted of marshmellows, cheerios and yogurt bites.
A Glimpse of the past:

Look at this adorable little guy just a few months ago...

I miss those days sometimes...but I love him being old enough to come up and just give me a huge hug or plant a kiss on my unsuspecting cheek!
