The armoire and changing table were my summer projects. I took several pictures of furniture I liked and put them together to make these two pieces. I call it my Diane Wagner Collection. A co-worker of mine's favorite vacation spots were near the beach and I always thought that sounded heavenly. I could imagine this furniture being in some beach-side cottage in Mexico. The fabric choices were based on the three pictures that Mom, Ashley and I found in Evansville at Thanksgiving. A trip to the Farmer's Store for matching fabric yielded the bed linens and curtains to match.

Here are some pictures from the nursery. The rocker we have came from the Executive Inn in Louisville. Two years ago when we were there for the Farm Show they were remodeling and I think I bought the rocker for about $20. After a coat of paint and new cushions it looks pretty good although I had to endure Tim's harassment for buying for quite some time. The cradle was made by Tim's dad, David. It is made from cherry and maple. We were very thrilled to receive it as a Christmas gift. My parents bought the crib and brought it down after the New Year and put it together.

On Monday we'll be at the 8 month point. Yesterday's dr visit went well. Measurements are consistent with the time in weeks so everything seems to be on track. By February 25th the dr. said we should be at full term and it is safe to have the baby anytime after that date. I'll try to post some nursery pictures next week. We haven't gotten everything in place yet but it is starting to look like a nursery.

I went last week for the 7 month check-up and all is well. We've been able to get started on setting up the nursery. Mom and Dad came this weekend and brought the crib they bought us for the baby and helped us assemble it. I've been working on the bumper pads and curtains too. I'll try to get some pictures up of it soon. I've put a couple pictures up from Christmas. One is of mom and I at Grandma & Grandpa Storey's house and the other is of Jessie and Sarah with the doll houses we gave them for Christmas.
