Getting Ready...

Our little man will be here before we know it! I am due in less than 3 weeks, but will be induced on Monday, the 15th, if he isn't here before then. Jeremy is supposed to be out of town for work (I know, I know, but it IS the NFL) the 5 days before my due date, so instead of risking him missing the birth ... we decided to schedule an induction a week early. I'm not really excited about the possibility of being induced and am praying Cooper comes before then. I was dilated 1.5-2cm last Wednesday, so we'll see!

Take a look at a few of the special things we have for our sweet boy:

I've been doing a lot of consignment sale shopping these days. Here are some of my favorite finds... Baby Gap, Kissy Kissy (my FAVORITE baby brand), & matching Gymboree vests :)
Possibly my favorite find so far...
a Christmas Kissy Kissy set that I paid $9 for...
Retail Value: $45-55
My sweet sister-in-law made a ridiculous amount of stuff for Cooper...
all of which I am in love with :) Here's a sampling of what she sent:
Fabric book, wipes case, & newborn burp cloths
She also made these matching shirts for my boys. LOVE.

And last but not least, she made this AMAZING quilt complete with chenille, minky dot, & Cooper's name embroidered in the center

I ordered these from etsy. Love love love.
And finally, here's a peek at Cooper's room. The lighting was kind of funny this morning, so I hope to take some better pictures another time of day. It isn't quite finished (missing mostly accessories that can be added later) but it is ready enough to handle a newborn baby!

We are using Carter's old crib, dresser/changing table, & rocker.
I somehow managed to put this room together for less than $150!
{Including paint and supplies}
The bedding and mobile are Pottery Barn Kids via ebay.
The curtains are from Target.
And the letters I made myself ... instead of paying $7-$9 a piece on etsy.
Nearly everything else I had laying around the house. Love that.
