Is This Real Life?


Sometimes I don't believe it when I think about the fact that I'll be a mom in less than a week. It is so crazy to think that time has gone by this fast and frankly, I am scared out of my mind. Being a mom is all I have ever wanted and I know without a doubt that this was the time Jordan and I were supposed to start our family; but that doesn't change the fact that I have no idea what I'm doing. For this reason, I am so grateful for the gospel and to know I can completely rely on prayer and inspiration to help me when I'll need it, which will most likely be 100% of the time. As unprepared as I feel, I'm as ready as I'll ever be!

Jordan and I finally finished the nursery. There are a few things we still need like a garbage can, but overall it feels finished. I love how it turned out, especially when I see pictures of what that room used to look like...



Jordan's dad designed and printed this art work for us, painted the wall gray, and hung them all up. Thanks Scott! We LOVE it!

We found this for a ridiculously low price at DownEast, as you can see below. It was the first thing we bought for his room and we were pretty excited about it. 

Don't mind the garbage on the floor... I told you I still need a trash can.

Forgive the pictures... we don't have a high-quality camera so those were taken with Jordan's phone. I don't think they do the room justice, but for a phone they aren't too bad. It feels great to be finished and know that at least I'm prepared in that aspect. The colors turned out fun and even though I know decorating was more for us, I'm glad my baby will have his own cute little room. I love walking in there and am excited to actually have a baby to change on the changing table, put into the crib, and cuddle with in the rocking chair.  

On Halloween, my 39 week mark, we were able to have maternity pictures taken! My friend Summer was kind enough to take them for us since I'm pretty much awful at documenting our lives. Our main form of documentation is Instagram, and I think we've posted like six pictures. Pathetic. I need to be better so I can capture all the fun family moments that are soon to come! Anyway, we love how they turned out and feel so grateful to have some nice pictures of us for once since our wedding. Thanks, Summer! 

3 more days! Ready or not, he's coming!
