baby room pics



these are some pics of our baby's room. hubby painted shelves today that will be hung tomorrow and he's gonna paint the ceiling blue w/ white fluffy clouds this weekend.... i'm still trying to decide if we should add more animals or leave it as is... so maybe within a week or so, we'll decide. the beautiful quilt you see in the crib is the baby's quilt that my mom hand made for me. it's soooo sweet. it has numerous animals on it that she painted - horse, cat, duck, cow, pig, rabbit and a few others... so if you can't tell, i love animals. :) and i'm hoping that that love will be passed to the baby. and, i'm hoping that once i feel better, i'll be able to draw and paint a big vine w/ huge leaves on it above the door, and then paint his name either in the leaves or beside them... i think that'll be cute. we still have a few things to get for the room and for the baby... but at least it's starting to take a definite shape.... which is really exciting.

That's lovely! No lack of love there, that's for sure!
Standing by and ready to receive, right?

How are you doing?

tooners said...

thanks you guys... i think it looks really sweet too. i'm so impressed w/ how well the hubby did w/ the painting, it looks even better than i expected it to look.

and moody, i'm doing pretty good as long as i take it easy. i'm on meds to keep from going into labor and i take them faithfully, but yes, i'm ready pretty much. altho, it's weird cuz even tho i know the baby is inside of me, it's strange to think that we'll have a real baby pretty soon. and today, for the first time, i realized that i'll miss being pregnant. having the baby kick inside of you is an amazing feeling and something i'll miss, but, if i'm lucky, i'll have several more weeks of feeling him before i deliver.

still breathing, you're very sweet my dear.... thanks for mentioning me on your blog, and i'm glad you enjoy my blog. :)

WOW! Love it, Love it! It looks so boyish and cute. Wish I was there to help decorate. Mom loves it too.
It's a good thing you like it so much cuz you'll be spending lots of sleepless nights in there SOON! Hee Hee ha ha ha ha ha
Six years ago was along time for me but I do remember that!
Too cute sis.

Puppy said...

Tooners,

Did you receive my email?

Thursday said...

Looking good Tooners, looking good!

Munther said...

ok THAT'S IT ! I am spending the night at the baby's bedroom, looks cute ! :)

Leilouta said...

Very nice room. You make me want to get pregnant:)

tooners said...

munther, my husband says the same thing... i think he's a bit jealous! ;) you know, they say that the husband gets jealous of the baby... i hope i'll be able to separate the two but i think it'll be hard at first.

puppy, no, i haven't checked my email, but i will this morn.

thursday, thanks dear!

leilouta, i've been wondering about that baby issue and you... checked back in about 6 mths and then we can talk! ;)

olivia, that'd be a hoot!! at the very least... i hope he loves life. :)

Olivia said...

ooh i forgot to tell you the other day that my cousin can feel her baby hiccup. She says it feels weird. Hehe, I can't imagine!

Olivia said...

Sorry, my cousin is 6 months along like you and due on March 19 or so.

gazza27 said...

The room's beutifull,a lot of love and thought has gone into it.

tooners said...

olivia, you know, i'm 8 mths now. i was wondering about your cousin. i'm glad she's doing good and the baby is good. i don't know if i could tell if the baby is hiccuping, but maybe and i just don't know it. i know that feeling him kicking is something you can never imagine. lastnight i was playing music for him and he moved more w/ mozart, if you can believe it!! sometimes i'll tap my belly when he kicks me and he'll kick back right in the same spot. it's the sweetest thing! :) makes me laugh and i can only imagine the little attitude he'll have!

gazza, thanks for the compliment. i hope the baby likes it as he grows.
