Here were are being SO excited for Thanksgiving Break!!Eli's room.
Ok this rocker and footstool belonged to my great-grandmother. It used to be just a plain wood color and the cushions were these gross orange cushions. My mom made new cushions and spray painted the furniture black, and it could not look more perfect! The chest used to be that old white chest that belonged to my parents for Josh when he was little. My amazing mother, once again, repainted it and put new handles on it and it looks fantastic!
Here are the curtains my mom made! I think they are SO cute!
So here is the crib covered in goodness! My mom made the little comforter and the ruffles at the bottom out of these super cute sheets we finally found at JC Penny's. The shelves were the gross "white" shelves that Wes painted black.
I need to take some pictures of some super cute things I have received for Eli. I feel bad because I haven't taken pictures of like the diapers or wipes, but those things have become like gold to me, so I am so grateful for them as well, but most people just want to see the cute stuff! Today one of my students bought be the cutest little fleece boots with the cutest little blue outfit! I will have to get a pic and update this! And one student bought me this little snuggly blanket for him, and it is so adorable as well! I love all these little gifts!
Here is my 34 weeks pic compared to my 29 week pic. It makes me laugh to see how Eli was laying at 29 weeks! I guess he was just trying to make sure everyone knew he was there!
Here is the bassinet that has been in our family since my aunts and my mom were born. I think they said every baby has been in that bassinet starting with them! So, that's kind of cool! Anyways, my mom of course redid a lot of it, including a new cushion, blankets, siding, and ribbon! It's very traditional boyish, which makes me laugh sometimes, but it is actually super cute!
