More Nesting!

Yesterday I hit 35 weeks.  This is the furthest I have made it in a pregnancy.  For the most part I feel great, but I will admit there are things that are no longer "fun" - Like getting out of bed 4-5 times a night to go to the bathroom, rolling over in bed takes like 10 steps, getting off the couch takes at least a minute or two, and this week HEART BURN has kicked in! Alright enough complaining, I know it will all be worth it in a few weeks.

Speaking of a few weeks, I have continued my to do list to get ready for Emmett!  Today I worked on the guest bathroom which will be Emmett's bathroom.  My wonderful husband had been using that bathroom for his various fish tank "things" and painting supplies.  Once I cleaned all of that stuff out, the cleaning and organizing began.  I have posted pictures below.

The tub.  I am reusing Trevor's baby tub.  The toy holders and bath toys are from the baby shower.

My favorite part of todays' project.  We have a small bathroom and I found this "skinny" 3 drawer cart.  It allowed me to organize the towels, wash cloths and baby washes.  I love this cart!
I love the monogrammed towels!  

My second favorite part of today's project was the towel hooks.!  Crazy I know, but I installed them myself (they were stick on) and they will be a huge help in hanging up the hooded towels after baths.  As you can see this is another monogrammed towel :)
 The only thing we have left to do is to put the crib together (we were waiting for hardware to come in) and to put the decals up.  I want to make sure the paint is cured before putting them up.  Other than those things we are set.  I have my bags packed for the hospital and all.  HOWEVER, I am encouraging my little guy to stay in for at least 2 weeks.  I would love to say I carried a baby to full term!  So Emmett, please stay put!  :-)

Organizing Emmett's Room

In 2008 when Trevor was born we had NOTHING ready.  He came so early we hadn't even had the baby shower yet.  This time, we have been better about getting things ready.  This process has of course been bitter sweet, preparing for Emmett and remembering Trevor at the same time.

When Trevor was born there was no pinterest meaning no cute ideas!  I have found some great ideas for not only decor but for organization as well.  This week we started with the closet.

We started with an organization system (the closet only had a shelf and a rod to hang clothes on).  We first bought a set off of WalMart.com and it was too complicated and not adjustable.  So off to Lowes we went and bought this system which is fully adjustable and easy to put up!

The next thing to go up in the closet was the nursery organization set.  Again, I saw this system on on pinterest and had to order it.  Luckily it came from Wal-Mart.com and was very reasonable.  Click here to see the product.

The next organization project was the diaper changing drawer.  We bought a new dresser to match the crib.  I wanted to be able to put a changing pad on top and use it as a changing table.  I designated the top drawer to house diapers and wipes.  I bought a few bins from dollar tree and I love the results.

That is all for now.  Dominic and I are going to Lowes this week and plan on buying some wall shelves as well as the window blinds.  I will post more pictures soon!
