She was an antiques collector her whole life, so to get one of her treasures was a dream come true for me.
I can't wait to get a new pad inside and get it ready for lots of weekly photos of our baby boy. She also gave us this Moses basket, I envision this being a spot to stash blankets, toys, and possibly the little dude all swaddled up.
Shaun's mom and dad brought over his old rocking chair, I just love how wee it is. Shaun tried to sit in it and we heard a snapping noise, so we hope it's still ok! Ooops.
My mom also fixed up my old bassinet, but it's still at her house so I don't have a photo yet. It is white, wicker, and beautiful! Our families are so excited about the baby, we can't thank them enough for all the great items full of memories. As for the new (to me), I finished repainting the dresser:
I used Pittsburgh Paints 'Grass Daisy' in a semi-glass finish, and THAT PAINT IS HORRIBLE. I bought both the closet paint and this quart at the same time, and they will both be brought back to Menards with my request of a store credit for my time and frustration. From going on like glue to having tons of lumps of paint in the can, I can't tell you enough how much this prego lady wanted to KILL someone while painting (4 coats!) on this thing.
And I still have to put the missing brass corners back on. Ugh. Thank goodness the color is fabulous and I love it! Baby Hilton is doing good at 31 weeks, here I am yesterday:
I've gained 28 pounds, have horrible heartburn every night no matter what, and can't sleep to save my life. I didn't let it stand in the way of having some St. Patty's day fun, though.
We stayed out until 11pm that Saturday! Watch out, party animals in the house.
