Well, I think we can call it complete - for now. Although it is missing the key component, a BABY! We've worked on this room for months, from painting old furniture (that bed was the most hideous honey veneer), to emptying closets and hanging shelves, Steven and I have really worked together to make our little guy a place to call his own. This was our spare room for the past five years, the room where guests would stay when they'd come to visit, or people could crash for the night if they really shouldn't drive home. The two closets in this room were all mine, in addition to one of the two in our master bedroom, and I used this as my dressing/getting ready room daily. A few months ago I felt a sense of panic when I realized I would need to move all of 'me' into our master bedroom. Well, it did take some work and a whole lot of purging, but we did it. I am fully and comfortably situated in the master, all of my clothes fit and I even have a space to do my hair and make up (perhaps I'll post photos of our bedroom someday soon).
So, basically, we're ready. The suitcase is packed and in my car, and the car seat is installed. Now we're waiting. Our due date is November 15, but I would be happy to have him make his entrance into our world at any moment. Do you hear us little guy - we're ready for you!!
