29 Week Update in Pictures

The holidays were terrific. Hubby and I had almost 2 weeks off - it was SO nice being able to relax, get things done around the house, see friends and family, and enjoy each others company. Baby, who is now officially Emma Grace, got loads of great stuff for Christmas, which was so much fun. Below are a few pictures...

Emma's New Glider. Storkcraft brand from Wal-Mart - great bargain - about $160 and that includes the ottoman!

Emma's New Dresser
/Changing Table. Rockland brand from JCPenney. It matches the crib, which we are waiting to put together once the nursery gets cleaned out and we put up crown molding in a few weeks.

Emma's New Pack-n-Play. Graco brand in Townsend pattern. We'll use it as a bassinet.

Emma's New Clothes

Weekend Craft Project. I love the look of the pretty wooden letters you get to spell out the baby's name, but they are just so expensive. So I figured that hubby and I could make our own. He painted the striped "M," impressive, huh? We spent hours this weekend on this project - thankfully the baby's name is short. I still need to track down an "A" once Michael's craft store gets more in stock. The colors for the letters (and the nursery) are brown and pink, in case you can't tell.

Emma's Car Seat. Emma's cousin, Matthew, who just turned one, was nice enough to give her his old car seat, a Graco Safe Seat!
