Getting Ready: Part Three

Been working on some of the fun stuff for Jackson's room...a customized pillow, boppy cover, and stroller quilt from this lady's cute shop!
Getting all of the clothes we have gotten as gifts organized in his closet!  These two were from Adam's (very nice!) boss!!
Finding cool decorations for his room...like this five foot tall giraffe and giant lion!  I saw them in a store locally, but they were so expensive!!  So I was going to pass.  But then I got some birthday money, and found them way cheaper online, and well...
I got them both for Jackson's room!  
They were totally worth it! I hope he loves playing with them!
I've also been working on gathering my photo props & ideas for his newborn photo shoots! 
(Totally kindof a frou-frou type preparation, but fun nonetheless!!)
Been cutting & assembling thank you cards (although it's a little time consuming, it is so fun to mass assemble a bunch of cards at one time!)
Perhaps a little unnecessary, but I made closet dividers for Jackson 
(and a friend - the pink set isn't for Jackson, promise!!)
 
Here they are in action.  I find them useful, since as you can see, we already have a few clothes in lots of different sizes!
I've also been working on Jackson's scrapbook & ordering pictures to date of all of our weekly pictures, preparation photos, & ultrasound pictures!
And I made a simple little wreath for his room door!
I still have a massive list of things I want to make/organize/purge...but I keep marking stuff off the list...so that's a good thing!! :)

30th Birthday Card

A super quick and simple 30th birthday card ( I know, I know, do I only make cards now?!) (No, but I can never find the time to take pictures of my layouts anymore! It's either too dark or somethings going on, etc. etc.)


 
And, in other news, my own birthday has come and gone again.  It was a fun day/week/two weeks. :)  I got some presents for Jackson with my birthday money (!!!!), ate a lot of cookie cake, got taken out to eat five times, had a doctors appointment and got lots of happy birthday wishes and gifts (all of which I enjoyed immensely). 

I think it was the best one yet. :)

Getting Ready: Part Two

These past few months have been very busy - we have worked hard getting mister Jackson's room ready...
 
And registering & researching for baby stuff!
Ordering, washing, ironing & cutting up fabric for the baby bedding....my mom has done most of this!
 
Painting! (Yuck! None of us are fans!)
Installing a new door in between our room and the room next door for quicker access to Jackson's room!
 
Finished assembling the crib (with some help from T1 & T2!)
 
And we got all the furniture moved in and our growing stash of baby stuff all put in his room!
 
And, perhaps most fun of all, I've been on the lookout for cute church clothes!  
So cute, it just kills me!!
 
I'm not sure if everything I want to get done will get done, but we're definitely trying hard to make it all happen! :)

Daddy (& Jackson's) New Ride!

A few weeks ago, we got Daddy (Adam) a new truck in anticipation of Jackson's arrival.
It looks like Barrett approves! :)

Little Sailor Card!

This card was for Adam's cousin's family to welcome their first child!  I got the idea for a sailboat by trying to match the baby bedding chosen by the mom-to-be!  I added a wave border sticker and inked the edges with light blue ink.  I never do any paper piecing because I don't usually have a lot of time but this was a fun card to make! :)

Taylor & Tori

A few weeks ago, I picked up the girls on my half Friday off to hang out and spend the night.  We were supposed to go to the park, but we got rained out, so we went to the mall instead.  I had $20 cash and told them we could spend it doing whatever they wanted, but then when it was gone, it was gone.  So! They chose to share a massage chair...
Get a cookie from the cookie shop and share a drink!
Do the bungee jump (which was expensive, but they loved it!)
Get an all day pass into the balloon pit...which we went back to two or three times! (They also pretended to play arcade games, because we were out of money at that point...but they didn't seem to mind!)
Then we window shopped at Claire's...
And stopped by Dillards to look for baby Jackson some clothes...they wanted to buy him everything, but we ended up getting him two cute little church outfits on a really good sale. On the way in, they found these "beautiful" moo moo dresses, which Taylor emphatically told me she would definitely want if they had that in her size. Haha!
 

Then we took "photoboth pictures" but with Auntie Amber's phone because, again, we had already spent our $20 limit...but we did it in the photo booth, so they were still thrilled! And hilarious!

Then when we got home, we toured baby Jackson's new room and convinced Uncle Adam to assemble the last piece of furniture - the crib, so they could "help!"  Which they tried valiantly to do, by toting and dropping screws and bolts all over the room, which resulted in Uncle Adam having to (repeatedly) help them find them.  Their intentions were PURELY helpful though, and Uncle Adam thought it was so sweet, so he was very patient and even let Auntie Amber snap some pictures!
We also did a few other things...like make cousin Sophia a little onesie, and play lots and lots of tic tac toe.  And we ate at a Chinese restaurant, where Tori fell asleep on Uncle Adam's lap very early in the night!  The next morning, we took Auntie Amber's favorite pictures the "good morning" pictures.
 
Then they asked to do more photobooth pictures, which Auntie Amber agreed to and can't believe she is posting online! This is what true love looks like....hahahaha! Then we finished off the morning with Chick-fil-A for breakfast & sidewalk chalk before heading over to their new house!  I'm really glad I got to have a fun weekend with them before I got too pregnant to have the energy!
