Getting Ready

With 5 weeks till our due date the Kelly household is in major nesting mode.  Jimmy has been tackling big projects like installing new windows in our house and I've been going crazy organizing and then re organizing the nursery.  We are slowly but surely getting ready for the next stage in our lives.  We are anxious and ready for our little guy to make his appearance into the world and for us to officially be a family!
Getting our cloth diapers ready to go!

 TJ's Nursery.  We just finished applying the wall decals.  Each leaf had to be individually applied!

We are now seeing Dr. Monroy every week and this weeks appointment was no different than the rest.  TJ is active, healthy and head down...ready to go!  I've been having an increasing number of Braxton Hicks contractions but nothing regular yet.  I say bring it on kid!  We're ready for you!!!!

This week I also did a maternity photo shoot.  This was not something I was looking forward to but so many people told me to document my big ol' belly otherwise I would regret not having something to look back on to remember my pregnancy.  So here is the first proof. 

I'm not sure how I feel about it but there it is.  I can't believe I'm still going to get bigger...YIKES!


  1. Em, you look gorgeous! I love the way you decorated TJ's room. I feel like it's been a million years since I've seen you guys! I wish I could come down there this weekend, but I have so much homework. Luckily two of my classes end this week and the other one ends on May 1. I will be done just in time for TJ to make his way into the world!

  2. Don't worry about it Court. Just get through school and then we'll have plenty of time to celebrate your graduation and TJ's arrival!
