Her room.

For an update: at my 39 week appointment this morning it seems that there has been not a lot of progress and that little one is cozy and she is content. This seriously amazes me because this whole pregnancy, with my low progesterone numbers I've had a high chance of miscarriage and then preterm labor and here I am...39 weeks pregnant...seriously can't believe it.

Moving on.

I wanted to post some pictures of her nursery for everyone to see. I'm quite excited and even though I know she won't be in there right away, I love knowing that it's all ready for her.

To be honest, when I was first cleaning out and organizing her room it was a sort of out of body experience-it didn't feel real and I certainly couldn't believe I was preparing that dreaded "spare room that would hopefully please Lord, please Lord, become our designated nursery."

But, I did it and it is more or less ready for our sweet one (whenever you want to make your grand entrance!)!

Here's her room:

Her curtains I found at the thrift store for $2.99!!! Can't beat that-especially because the ones I originally wanted from Bed bath and beyond were $39.99 a panel!!

Here's a close up:

This is hanging above the glider. Her beautiful Aunt painted it for her:

I've had that guardian angel print for years, and so I found a $1 frame at the thrift store, painted it, and put scrap paper behind it so that it would go nicely in her nursery.

Like my wall of mirrors? Dollar tree and spray paint! So simple and so cheap!

I painted this sign to hang above her closet. I had all the materials already so this cost nothing to do! Wahoo for free decor:

Speaking of closet...little girl definitely has plenty of clothes! :)

And on the other side of the closet hangs some (and some folded) clothes that she will grow into. I was either given them or found them for a ridiculously cheap price on clearance. Goodness, shopping for little girls is so much fun:

And of course, her crib:

Her sign/name I painted for above her crib-once again, DIY=super cheap and easy! This maybe cost a total of $3 to make since I had most everything already:

Her first rosary:

A shelf that I put pictures on and displayed some of the dresses I love:

Like this crocheted cardigan and bonnet that my grandfather's mother made (I love the family history)...she will wear this with her baptismal gown:

And here's a few more random things around her room:

And lastly, our guest bathroom has never looked so sweet:


It's so crazy to think that that room, the room that use to bring sadness and bitterness at times, now fills my heart with joy and excitement.

There were so many times before we got pregnant that I would go sit in that room, broken, with tears in my eyes, begging The Lord to help us grow our family.

And now, throughout this pregnancy I've gone in there and my tears of sorrow I've been replaced with tears of joy and excitement and thankfulness.

Both my dh and I still discuss how it all seems so unreal and that we can't believe we are so close to meeting this little one, who has already completely captured both of our hearts.

It's amazing to think that she could be here at any moment and definitely in the next couple weeks....

Now, we wait.
