Getting ready!  
(for those of you who notice this is a drop side crib I called the manufacturer and this type was apparently not recalled because the hardware is metal not plastic)

She doesn't find it amusing I don't think

Itty bitty baby booties

Way too hot

With her new love stripey #4 George

More progress

She drew the picture.  I made the pattern and cut it out.  She picked the colors, buttons, and sewed it (with a little help)

Clean water for the ghetto pool

I'd say her uniform is a tad too big

Working hard at school

I hope little sister likes trains too

A glimpse into my fabulous baby shower

Someone took over the car seat and confiscated the striped monkey

Someone cut her own hair.  Thank goodness it was only a tiny bit on her left side.

 Finley's lunch.  If only she would eat it.

The baby may never get a new pair of shoes with all of these hand me downs

Artificial rain

One day of diaper mail.  Love the tiny newborn ones on the ends.

Yum!  The lemon lime wasn't actually bad.

Nesting? Maybe, maybe not.

I've been so lazy this pregnancy it is unbelievable.  I don't know if it's advanced maternal age or maybe just having to take care of a spunky 4 year old but man have I been sapped for energy.
I can say I've had grand plans to make a ton of cute things for the baby that I've seen on blogs or pinterest.  Guess how many I've done?  Yep, one.

I have a little over 10 or so weeks left and I barely just started trying to get a nursery area set up in Finley's room.  I guess part of it is that I had to paint 2 dressers and the inside of the closet.  After all the painting I've done in the last year the idea of painting anything makes me want to curl up in a ball and take a nap.

I decided to start out my nesting with a quick little sewing project I saw on Dana's blog Made.  With Finley I made some of those cute little burp rags where you sew cute fabric onto a gerber pre-fold diaper.  While I liked those a ton I wanted to try something a little different with this baby.

The new ones are just flannel on one side with chenille on the other side.  I did sandwich another layer of flannel in the middle to boost absorbancy.  For the middle layer of flannel I cut up a bunch of Finley's old swaddle blankets which I thought was a rather touching idea.

Oh, and the reason I made a ton of them is that Finley was a huge spitter upper and we went through a gazillion rags a day with her.  So if this next one is anything like her I will be prepared.
Just a little reminder picture of Finley the spitter upper.  This image is both a bit fascinating and disgusting at the same time. 

Ok, sorry about that.   Here are the cute little burp rags I made.
