The One With Birds, Babies & Apartments . . . Oh My!

Well, well, well! We are just about all settled into our first place. I only have to open 2 more boxes, but I have some random things to put away and organize too. Thanks to Rick our bedroom & kitchen are both all done and our front room is mostly done. Our sweet father-in-law bought us a new washer and dryer for Christmas that will be delivered this weekend. How nice of him!!!! We have the hookups in our apartment, so it will be so nice to not ever have to run to the laundry mat (especially with the baby), even though we have several close ones in our complex. We don't have the internet quite yet at the new place, but hopefully we will soon. I'll post pictures when I do. I was very surprised at how much storage we have, especially in our tiny kitchen. It's so nice, I love it! Paige also has her own room now! I put all of her things in there, even her clothes are hung in the closet. It makes me excited.

I had my monthly doctor's appointment today. I gained 10 pounds in the past month. Eeek. But the dr says I am right on target for everything. She did try to hear the heart beat, and every time she would find it, Paige would move. She couldn't believe how wiggly our little girl is. Yeah, yeah, not the first. :) She should be over 1 foot long & over 1 lb by now. It's crazy to think that she's a real little baby inside of me. We're very excited to be able to see her. It would be awesome to go get the 3d ultrasound, but they are a little pricey for us right now. It will be so neat to be able to see and hold her when she comes! :)

A friend gave me these images, and I am in love with them (and birds in general) right now for Paige. I am trying to think of what to do with them and how to incorporate them into her nursery. Let me know if you have any ideas! If I were more ambitious, I would make her a quilt like this, but I know that's biting off more than I am willing to chew right now. :)

Beyond adorable! I'm sure with your creativity and awesome photography skills you could put something ultra cute together!

Just have them printed nice, and frame them in cute light pink, white or even green frames and hang them up. Then you can just get other bedroom stuff in the same colors.

OR you could get them printed into sticky decals and decorate her furniture, like dresser, crib and changing table with them.

Those are so adorable! I think that making them into sticky decals or those pictures that rub off from the paper to your wall would be cute!

Those birds are so cute! I can't wait to see your new place. Hopefully I'll be able to find this one. :)
