Baby & Nursery Update

I have been asked by several people to give an update on our little girl. First I guess that I just actually post the name that we have decided on. Last Fall, before we even knew that we were expecting, Tyson and I randomly started talking about names. He decided at that time that he loved the name Lily. The conversation ended there and then, in January when we found out that we were expecting a girl, we had to start up the conversation again. Tyson was still very stuck on the name Lily and right away started calling her that. Ann is my mother-in-law's name and also my twin sister's middle name so it seemed like the perfect choice. So, we settled on Lily Ann.
Alright, an update. This last week I hit the 30 week mark so we are over 3/4 of the way there! According to my doctor all is proceeding just perfectly. We had a problem earlier with my AFI level being low, but after increasing my daily water intake from 2 liters to over 3 per day everything is looking good. I'm also getting to the point of being very tired again, but I'm pretty sure that I can make it through. We don't have that much longer to wait.
Also, I am finally completely finished with Lily's room. I always thought that it was silly that people made such a big deal of decorating a nursery and such. However, I have pretty much gone all out. I don't know when I changed my mind about this, but I certainly did. In my defense, I did most of the work myself so it didn't cost me very much at all.
My first project was her bedding which was finished a while ago. I just finished the paintings on the wall today.
Again, had you asked me 6 months ago I would have said that the nursery letters were a little silly, but then sometime his December I decided that I had to have them so that was another little project. I found the dresser on Craigslist for $30 and brought it home and painted it. I thought that was a pretty good deal.
This was our big purchase and Tyson's way of spoiling me. He bought me this fantastic rocking chair and ottoman. The only problem is that he likes it a little too much, I have to fight him for it sometimes.


  1. Love it! I so know how it goes when decorating a nursery. I thought it was crazy, but after we found of we were having a boy, I was insane. I had to decorate. You're incredibly talented. Good for you being able to create your own haven for your little Lily.

  2. perhaps i missed this in an older post, but what do the paintings say?

  3. Very cute! What a great job you've done! What do the paintings say?

  4. Love the room, love the colors!! The nursery looks all ready for little Lily to come home!!

  5. Her room looks awesome! I love the wall colors and you did such a nice job on your projects. I really need to get started on the rest of my Lilly's room now!
