Sutton's Room: A Work in Progress

My mom, Jeff and Brooke came in this weekend to see us and help work in the nursery. Thank heavens for all their help! We got pretty much everything put up as far as decor, now all we're waiting on is the actual baby stuff! It was so much fun doing everything with my mom, Brooke and Marli. We worked pretty much all afternoon Saturday and finished up this morning. Here's some pictures of what we got done:

I know one of the main reasons everyone came down (and Kolby and Marli came over) was to feel Sutton kickin' up a storm like he is so apt to do nowadays. No such luck! He was SO quiet all weekend. My mom finally got to feel him move a bit this morning before they left. Little stinker. Not 1/2 an hour after everyone leaves he starts squirmin' around and hasn't stopped yet. I can definitely tell where he's at now, I'm just not sure if the little bumps are a foot or an elbow and the big bumps are his head or his heinie. It's so funny when you put your hand on whatever he's sticking out and he moves away from the pressure.
We have a Dr's appointment on Tuesday morning, but it's just a check up to make sure I'm doing what I'm supposed to as a Mommy and Sutton is doing what he's supposed to as a growing baby! Our next appointment at the end of February should be another big one: gestational diabetes testing (we get to skip the screening test since I have a family history,) more blood work (boo!) and another sonogram where we'll have all his measurements taken to make sure he's as normal as a kiddo of mine and Rusty's can be!
Next weekend we're heading up to Granbury to see some friends of ours that we haven't see in TOO LONG and attend a couple's shower for some friends who are also having a little boy, just a few weeks before Sutton is due.
So ready to meet our son! I just can't believe we still have several more months until he's here...


  1. The nursery is so cute! I love it. Can't wait to have a shower. It is so much fun to look at all the little stuff but, I already have an idea about what I plan to get IF I can beat Mindy to it! Oh, and you know kids will never show off when you want them to! Maybe your Mom can sneak up on him next time!

  2. Tell me about it, Donna. I have to just grab Rusty's hand and put it on my tummy to let him feel. If I say something, he stops kicking immediately.
