I'm Bringing Home A Baby Bumblebee

We got the crib, bedding and other accessories for Jackson's room this week and today we spent the better part of the day putting the bed together (actually Seth did this part with help (more like hindrance) from Matthew. I decorated. We still have to find a dresser, mirror and buy some more accessories for the room but I think we are off to a good start.

I love the bumblebee theme!!! Adding the snails, frogs and dragonflies make it a little more boyish but I love the song "Bringing Home A Baby Bumblebee" and so does Matthew so we chose the bumblebee theme for Jackson.





I got creative!! I found these little bugs hanging on springs and decided to hang them from the ceiling. I am a master at crocheting but never finishing projects so I found where I had crocheted these little squares and decided to use them to hang at the ceiling where the little bugs were hanging. I have to make them more permanent but this is how they look right now. I got them at JoAnne fabrics this summer as part of a clearance sale. (they were like 1.00 each)





Here is the crib with the bedding on it. Behind the crib we have matching decals that just stick to the wall. It works great so we don't have to put a lot of holes in the wall because when he gets older I know he will want to change the decor.





This rocking chair was given to me by a very dear friend. We have a lighter color wood in Matthew's room so we put Seth's old rocking chair in Matthew's room. This darker color matches Jackson's darker wood much better. Behind the rocking chair are little honeycombs that we found at JoAnne fabrics for like 2.00 each at the same clearance sale.





I can't wait to bring home my baby bumblebee so he can see his room!!!

P in the Pot

Thank God I am getting another little baby soon =) Matthew is just growing up WAY TOO FAST!!! Tonight he went Pee Pee in the pot for the very first time. I can't believe it...they say that it takes longer for boys but I have seen little girls that are older than Matthew that are still in diapers.

I am one proud mom tonight!!!

We got the crib and bedding this week so hopefully this weekend I will be able to post pictures of our little man's room!!!

Have a wonderful Friday everyone!!!

Jackson's Crib

One thing I have been so lazy about is getting Jackson's room cleaned up and ready to set up the room. Today we decided to buy the crib online so pretty soon I will be forced to get everything ready. I found out that JCPenny and Target are having a huge baby sale and we got a great deal on a crib from Target.







We decided to go with a bumblebee theme for Jackson's room. One of Matthew's favorite songs is "Bringing Home A Baby Bumblebee" so I thought we would use that idea for Jackson's room. Here are some pictures of his bedding and other items I am registered for at Babies R Us.







Hopefully in the next week or so I will be able to post the pictures of Jackson's completed room =)

Happy Friday everyone!!!!

Matthew at 20 months and Jackson at 23 1/2 weeks

Matthew is now 20 months old...I can't believe that in less than 4 months he will be 2 years old. The sad part is that I will be 2 years older too!!!



Here is a picture of Matthew at 20 months old.



Just for comparison...here is Matthew at 8 months old.





I can't believe how big he is getting. Wow, pretty soon I will have another baby just in time for Matthew to start getting out of the baby stage.

Here is Jackson at 23 1/2 weeks. (and me of course)
