I would almost call it nesting....

So inspired by this post by Kristan.  I decided to make some of these for not only Lily but for Claire too.  And if you ask me (besides Lily's being a little crooked) they make the perfect addition to their room!

I'd post directions on how to make them but I think Kristan did that quite well so if you are curious head over to her blog to check it out.  I of course didn't do the frames to save some money, so I just skipped that part.

10 fingers, 10 toes.....

So we had our Ultrasound on Friday!  I'm sure most of you have heard already that we are having another GIRL!  I'm excited, Adam is excited and Lily is pretty indifferent at this point.  I did manage to get her to call the baby by her name, and she knows where Claire lives. So it's pretty adorable.

I was waiting to post until I actually remembered to take some pictures of their room, I made some letters to spell their names inspired by some friends that have done it.  They turned out great and i can't wait to share them with the world.  However I have to remember to actually take the photo first.

Anyway, back to the Ultrasound.  We had to go to a specialist because of Lily's heart condition.  And thankfully all looked great.  Everything measured SPOT ON. and Nothing was off or anything.  The Dr. said the heart looked great but we should still do the Echo (which is scheduled for Thursday) to just make sure all is well.  So of course I'll update after that appointment.

For now we are just enjoying the fact that we are going to have 2 beautiful little girls!  What more could we ask for!

And the countdown begins....

That would be the countdown until the day we find out if the baby is a boy or a girl.  July 16th is THE day!  I can't wait.  I can honestly say I am not at all sure how we managed to NOT find out with Lily because I am already dying of curiosity.  LOL  I have so many things I want to do. 

If we have a girl:
Go through Lily's clothes and pick out season appropriate clothes (since they will be opposite seasons)
Make room in the girls dresser and closet for new baby's clothes.
Start pulling out baby supplies and checking for things we need.

If we have a boy:
Go through Lily's clothes and pull out neutrals and probably get rid of the rest (except for a few favs)
Start getting boy clothes
Start pulling out baby supplies and checking for things we need.

I also need to make a final decision on if we want to get a bassinet or not.  I'm not sure why I'm so torn.  Part of me thinks a bassinet is the way to go cause it's smaller than our Pack and play and it will fit in our bedroom better, but then part of me doesn't want to spend the money on one since we have a perfectly good pack and play with a newborn section in it that would work.  Of course we have a crib but I think for the first few nights at home at least we will keep baby in our room so that Lily can get used to having a baby around and hearing a baby cry before we shove it into her room with her.  Cause we're thoughtful like that.  I'm not super concerned about it though since Lily is a pretty hard sleeper and I think once she gets used to it it wouldn't be a big deal and she won't even twitch when baby cries. But I guess you never know til the time comes.

Anyways, my point is, I'm antsy.  I wanna do stuff and I can't do much (or at least it's pointless until we know gender) to go through stuff.

Then there's the question of, if it's another girl, do I re-decorate the girls room?  Which could be really fun.  Re-paint and stuff or just leave it?  It's cute the way it is so I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
