Nursery Pics

So here are some pictures of the nursery so far. Its almost done. Just need a hamper and to get the shelf finished so it can be hung.
These Japanese lanterns are in the corner kind-of above the babies' crib. My dad thought they were balloons and asked me if I actually thought they were going to stay blown-up for months.

We were given these Willow Tree figurines at our shower. They are going to go on the aforementioned shelf when its installed but for right now they're on the windowsill. They are just like our family- two parents and two babies!

And lastly is this bolster pillow I made. Its going to go in the rocking chair whenever it gets here. Right now its sitting on the changing table. The curtains are also made out of the dot fabric and the little chair and the lamp shade are covered in the apples and pears fabric. More pictures of those to come.

I am feeling really conflicted just now. I don't want the babies to come early AT ALL. Our goal is 38 weeks (7 weeks from now) but I am SO ready to not be pregnant anymore! It is really getting to be hard on me. We went to Wal-Mart tonight to pick up a few things and I'm exhausted. I had the hardest time walking around the store (and I'm pretty sure Steve was tired of me walking so. slow.) and I had to sit on the bench while Steve paid. I told him I think I'm just not going to be going out in public for the next 7 weeks. Which will be worth it if we can get the babies here as healthy as possible.

I'm hoping I'll be able to go to the beach with the family for Labor Day weekend but at this point, I just don't know. That's still 3 weeks away and at 34 weeks pregnant with twins, I'm not sure I'm going to feel like it. Its not that long of a car ride, we live pretty close to the beach but still... Then there's the whole issue of family photos at the beach! I don't want to be memorialized in formal family photos looking like this!


  1. You should really turn that pillow into a hat:

  2. HI-Came across your blog by way of multiples and more.

    I have 10 month old twin girls. Your nursery looks great! I bet you are getting really excited/anxious!

  3. I stopped working at 32 weeks, had the girls at 37 weeks...I did nothing, nothing for those last few weeks. It hurt to do anything! ;) I know your uncomfortable, just hang in there. I kind of wanted mine to come early too because I was so uncomfortable but they didn't. And they had zero NICU time. It was worth the pain. :)
    We have 4 of those willow figurines. They were in the nursery until mine got big enough to reach the shelf! ;)
