Getting ready for baby

This past Sunday was quite a productive one. Since it was raining for the 3rd straight day we chose an indoor project for the day opposed to working outside. Its been making me crazy that the room baby girl is going to use for her nursery was still a fully intact guest room. So many things needed to be accomplished in there before moving forward with the transformation. With Brady kicking and screaming I forced the guest room clean out. Pictures had to be taken off the walls, closet cleaned out, bed taking apart, stuff packed away, not to mention I had to move out all the many loads of stuff baby girl has already acquired (thank goodness for gracious friends with lots-o-hand me downs). Surprisingly we got a lot done in there and even decided to put the crib together so we could try to arrange the room to get an idea of where everything was going. The crib was given to us by a friend (thank you, April!) And the rest of the nursery furniture is a collection of odds and ends. My dad bought my mom an antique bedroom set when they where married a ba-gillion years ago. Mom gave it to me a few years back and its been our guest room furniture ever since. We are going to use the dresser, as a dresser and the vanity as a changing table. The full sized bed will have to be packed away until baby girl is big enough to use it. Brady's Aunt Cathy picked up a wardrobe for us to use as extra storage in her room, (a girl can't have enough storage), we just have to go to San Angelo to pick it up. Brady and I found a rocker in Brownwood at an antique store many years back for $8 (what a deal, couldn't resist) that we are going to fix up to use. All the furniture needs some fixin up, but all and all, its it awesome condition and we didn't have to run out and buy a 2nd crib, changing table, rocker and so on (Kellan is still currently using all his stuff). Point to my story is, while were doing all this, right under foot helping, as always and he wanted to try out baby sisters goods. We couldn't resist the photo op. Enjoy !!
Kellan testing the shocks out on the sisters bed.

Kellan helped himself right up into the rocker, after he kicked Bella (dog) out of it. I know the chairs in sad shape now, but I promise, I have a vision !!

Kellan checking out his handsomeness in the mirror on whats going to be the changing table. Seems like its going to work out as a great changing table, he laid there for ever.Beau checking out what Kellan's doing laying on the furniture ??
