Getting Ready For Scarlett

I thought I'd try to start a blog again to record being pregnant, Scarlett's birth, and years after, so I'd have something to remember it all by if I didn't get a chance to journal it all down.

Right now we're in the process of clearing things out so we can get her nursery painted and furniture set up. I really wanted to get it done before she's born because we've booked a newborn photo session that's taking place in her nursery...(so excited!) 
Here's Jeff painting the walls grey a few weeks ago:

Last Sunday we Jeff got the crib set up that my mom and step-dad bought for us and it looks awesome! I can't wait to finish the details up.

Here's the assembled crib photo (with bumper pads made by my mom):

We just got the mattress on Tuesday so the crib is almost ready to go. We're just waiting on my mom to make the layered skirt for the bottom. The only other big thing we need to complete is installing the closet system in there so it's utilized better (there was just a single bar going across with a crappy wooden shelf that barely held anything). 

Other things to note coming up:
1. Baby shower this Saturday
2. Just signed up for Childbirth classes for Sept 1st

Baby Shower Aftermath

I'm not sure where we're going to put all of this....yikes.
