I had a doctor appointment last Thursday. It went well, but was pretty uneventful. My next doctor appointment is September 29th, and I'm assuming I'll go again two weeks after that (although they may want to see me every week after the September 29th appointment, since I'll be nearly 37 weeks along by then). By the way, it would be GREAT to give birth a week early, like I did with Sydney. That means October 15th, so everyone pray for that date! (It would be much easier, logistically, to have her then, because Chet is due to leave for a field exercise right around the actual due date. He will probably be home for the birth, even if he's already left for the exercise, but having him here to drive me to the hospital when I go into labor would definitely help my nerves.)
I finally finished painting her letters, so here they are, hanging on her wall. Sorry for not taking more pictures of the room yet. It's coming along, but isn't quite finished, and I like to take finished pictures. :-) There is very little we need to buy for Lorelei, because she will be able to use most of Sydney's hand-me-downs. But there are a few things we need to finish off her room, such as another changing pad for the changing table...things like that. On that note, I FINALLY registered at Babies 'r' Us and Target for some things. A few different people encouraged me to do it, even though we really don't need much. We didn't go into the store to register; I just did it online. (Side note: The nearest Target is 20+ miles away, and the nearest Babies 'r' Us is in Louisiana...not what I'd call convenient.)
Back to the room. It may be hard to tell in the picture, but the letters are mostly navy blue and lavender. Her furniture is brown, and it looks much more grown up than Sydney's room. Probably because of the colors. Anyway, my inspiration for the room was from Pottery Barn Kids. I really liked this nursery (even though it's a boy's nursery):
But it needed to be more girly, and I was adamant about not using pink. So I chose the navy blue/white bumper and navy blue/white crib skirt from the boy's nursery and combined it with the purple dotted sheet:
And here is the rug I'm using:
Anyway, I am very happy with it, and cannot wait until it's finished!
