I said before that I am checking things off my list, right and left, these days. Trying to get things in order before baby beep-beep arrives on the scene.

The baby's blanket arrived last weekend. When I was pregnant with H, my mom made a beautiful quilt that he has grown to love and sleep with each and every night. I knew that there would be no way that H would share his special quilt that "Grandma Nan" made for him so after admiring much of her work, we hired a friend of a friend to craft this beautiful blanket.

(Picture taken from

I love how it turned out, especially since all of our communicating was done via email. This is a gift from my dad (and mom) for the baby that I know will be treasured for a long time.

The baby's room is complete, my new diaper bag is here. Much of our Christmas shopping is done (but not all) and there are meals planned and frozen. J's leave is approved and he's tying up loose ends.

But there are still things to do...

I was sad to find out that Anthropologie no longer carries these glasses that we have displayed.

J, S, T, M, H

Every morning when I see the sun shining in on the glasses I think of how incomplete the shelf will soon be. Anthropologie can't (or won't?!?) share the vendor information and I've googled everything under the sun trying to find them. To say I'm disappointed is a major understatement. So I'm hunting for a new plan once we need to add another initial to the wall. (Unless someone reading can point me to where I can find one more glass...)

We're also working on preparing H for a new baby.

For whatever reason I get this bad feeling when I see him run to the baby's crib, climb over and into it and start bouncing as if he's on a trampoline. Perhaps when he sees a little person there, he won't be so inclined to do that?

H, modeling his new hair cut.

And just for fun, to help pass the next 29 days until my due date, I've added a poll on the side bar so you can vote on whether you think baby beep beep is a girl or a boy. The consensus at our house is that T says it's a boy, M says it's a girl and H says it's a green one. I think he's still hoping for four wheels and a steering wheel.

I'm thinking girl, and then you'd have two of each!

Green isn't bad either though. :)

Samara, just a thought...

We may not be able to be exact, but if you found a similar pub style glass, I could probably make something similar with glass would at least fill the space on your shelf, and from across the room would probably blend right in.

The quilt is absolutely beautiful. Well done Sarah! And I must say Simplicity, H is sporting a good looking haircut :)

H looks so much older with his new haircut; very "preschool-ish" now.
