This is an emotional post to write...
I'm sure partly to blame on these 36 week hormones and partly just because we are so overwhelmed by the love that our friends and family have already shown our sweet baby boy. To have people that genuinely feel as excited about Durham as we are is such a blessing and we know that we are so lucky to be where we are.
Let me paint the picture for you a little... we live in a 3 bedroom house. Before we got pregnant we were using one room as a guest room and one room as an office. BOTH rooms were FULL of stuff we thought we needed/were using but once we got to purging and organizing we were able to combine them both into an organized space that we really enjoy. (although we currently don't have a place for guests to sleep besides a blow up mattress ::sorry josh:: but we are working on that). Check out the office progress posts here and here and the office reveal here.
:::dun, dun, dun:::
the baby showers happened.
and as floods of presents came in, his room started filling up.
I'm not going to lie... Durham's room looked like this for a minute... haha. I slowly started taking tags off and washing things and organizing... but this big 'ol belly got in the way sometimes. This weekend (my last weekend off before he comes) the hubs and I hunkered down and finished up. I'm sure his room will always be evolving. Since we are first time parents we don't really know what will work for us so as we make changes I'll be sure to revisit and share. And, we are still shopping for a rocker/glider/recliner... we just put a chair from our living room in there for now.
check back tomorrow for the details/links post.
we are happy to share where we bought/got everything, or how we made it
so if you have a specfic want or need just leave it in the comments. :)
