We're Ready, but this baby isn't

I LOVE BEING PREGNANT! (umm, I'm trying really hard to convince myself of this truth, but it's not working out for me) Anyways, I'm running out of things to do while I wait for this child to make her entrance.
The nursery is done. Mike did all the hard work and I did the bossy part.

Before: When the basement was finished in our house it seems like the finisher slapped up some drywall, threw on some mud and then painted. They never bothered to sand the mud, grout the tile or finish the closet. Mike finished off the closet and I grouted the tile. Mike also did some major mudding and sanding. And we got new carpet.

After: I know this child is a girl, but we had a gallon of blue paint. It looks like the sky. We're trying to teach her that she can fly. :) 

I did the colorwash on the wall and Mike did all the other work. He put up new trim, painted, set up the furniture, etc. Thanks babe! It looks awesome.

In other news, Alisha, my sister had her adorable baby early Friday morning. (I'm not jealous. I'm not jealous.) We are happy that she is doing well and home now.

I might never forgive Jennie for being 4 days late... those last days can be so tough.

If it makes you feel any better, when I was pregant with my first I made the entire crib set with blue fabric, knowing full well that it would be a girl.

I will think labor-ish thoughts for you!
