Making Room for Finley!

Slowly but surely Finley's room has come together.  It took me a long time to get started on it.  We were less than 12 weeks away from her arrival before I made the first purchase.  Soooo, the room looked like this for a long time...
A storage room after our move with paint samples painted on the walls.

But once we got started and it all came together rather quickly.
Come on in...
My creative sister, Camille, made the monogrammed door hanging.

 The view from the door.
The monogram painting on the floor is again by my sister Camille.  It will eventually make it to the wall above the toy bin and rocking chair, but we are waiting on one more picture to be framed this week.

Crib:  Pottery Barn Kids
Bedding/ Changing pad cover:  Rosenberry Rooms
Rocking Chair:  Cracker Barrel
Glider/Ottoman:  Best Chairs via USA Baby
Mirror:  An antique from Finley's Great-Great Grandmother Tollison
Dresser:  Flea Market Bargain
Shelves:  IKEA
Chandelier:  Thrift store antique find by JaJa (my mom)
(She bought it before she ever knew we were having a girl.)
Personalized cross stitch:  Mrs. Daley Perry
Lace trash can:  Bed, Bath and Beyond
FINLEY door sign:  Mrs. Jessica Robinson

We are still a few things, but they will be finished in time.  We love her room already and can't wait for her to arrive and get to enjoy it herself.  Only 3 days left!

Baby: Weeks 34-37

Wow I am quite behind.  And this post won't even catch me fully up, but here is a post nonetheless (side note:  what random english professor decided you could shove 3 words together without spaces to make 1 word...why not just keep it at 3 words.  No one was tweeting or texting with character limits back then??)

Week 34 or 35...Sadly I can't remember what week this photo was taken.
Finley weighed in at 6 lbs at Week 35 according to her ultrasound.  Babies gain about a half pound a week right now, so we probably won't have a little baby.  (However, ultrasound weighing is give or take 11-14 ounces or practically 1 lb.  so who really knows.)

Week 36.  Welcome to the 9th month of pregnancy.
"Wow" is right.  My belly has become very prominent.

Week 37

There isn't much about the 9th month of pregnancy that is more fun than the rest other than the fact that you daily get closer to meeting your bundle of joy.  AND at the end of week 37 I finished working!  It feels so good to be able to rest a little bit before our baby girl gets here and takes up all my "me time" for a while.

I will try to get up a week 38 picture before she arrives, but considering we are under 5 days until her big debut I make no promises.  The doctors are going to be weighing Finley again this week before her arrival so I guess we will see how accurate her ultrasound testing really is.

Happy almost birthday Finley!
