Froggies and Duckies and Turtles...Oh My!

We have been in full baby preparation mode lately! As of this past weekend, the nursery is now completed...and it is AMAZING! It was a day long project that was made possible thanks to two of my wonderful and talented "sisters" Kim and Korrie. Korrie lended her artistic abilities and created beautiful scenery on the walls, while Kim offered up her handyman skills and put together some shelves and hung curtain rods. While they slaved away, my duties included fetching anything that they needed and lending an extra hand whenever necessary. Other than that, I can take absolutely no credit for the fantasy land you see below...



Man, is our kid lucky or what? We could all be so lucky to have such a beautiful place to rest our heads! We could not be more pleased with the way everything turned out. I think Todd and I walk into the nursery at least 10 times a day just to look at it. We truly are blessed to have such talented and generous people in our lives! And on top of that Todd and I can rest easy now, knowing that the nursery is done. No rushing at the last minute to get things in place. I was determine to have things ready early, with the chance that Baby Menor decides to make a premature arrival! You just never know! There are a few finishing touches we want to make and of course there are many things we still need in order to take care of Baby Menor, but we still have about 2 1/2 months to get things in order...hopefully! I have been a little nervous lately, having heard stories about people who have had their babies 5 weeks early! 5 weeks??? I have too many things to do before November 6th...I can't have a baby 5 weeks early! Well unfortunately I do not have control over that. All I can do is keep my fingers crossed and hope that baby keeps cookin'.

Well I hope you all like the nursery as much as we do. Kim and Korrie put a great deal of thought and hard work into their efforts...and the finished product is more than we could have ever asked for!

P.S. Thank you to everyone who helped us get our nursery ready...

VJ & Chris - for your help getting the crib to the house
Heather - for offering an extra set of hands on "Nursery Day"

We love you all!

This is the cutest nursery I have ever seen. Kim and Korrie need to go into the nursery decorating business, they are amazing. You have one lucky baby and I can't wait to see the nursery in person to get the full effect.

Kudo's to Kim and Korrie!!! That nursery is SO precious. I just want the baby!!! It's been so long since we added a new Menor. If it's a girl I'm gonna fall over! I have faith that the two of you will break the cycle. To be able to buy a Barbie or a dress would be awesome!!! Rest assured though, if it happens to be another Mr. Menor--Aunt Chris will know just what to do!! Lots of kisses and hugs....I patiently wait....

The Froggies, Ducks and Turtles look terrific !! You all have made terrific progress and the nursey looks so inviting, I'd like to cuddle up in there myself. Great Job, warm soft colors, a great looking rocking chair for the Mom, perfect for cuddling the little one. Continue to feel well.
