It's Beginning to Look Alot Like A Baby

We have been so busy since we found out we are having a baby boy! This past weekend Randall "Baby Daddy" worked hard and said "It is all about my boy now!" It was so cute. He gave up weed eating/ edging to work on baby stuff....and if you know Randall you know that is huge!

This is an antique high chair my Aunt Babs bought for my cousin to use 8 years ago for her baby girl. The white wood looked good in her bright colored kitchen and Claire looked even cuter in it! My cousin, Hollye is a lot like me. She waited a small forever to have a child and also wanted to try to make her baby things blend with her house.
We also did not want a big plastic high chair in the kitchen that we worked so hard on redoing last fall (call us selfish or even snotty..but at least we are honest), so we are using the white antique high chair that Hollye had. We made a few minor changes to it, as you can see! It blends so well in our kitchen and Baby Boy L will look like a little prince eating out of it next Spring/Summer.
The fabric on the high chair is the same fabric on our dining room chairs. Baby Daddy is so crafty! (the tray was still under construction when this picture was taken)

This past weekend also brought us a special guest...my Mama. She was thrilled to get to see my growing belly and she even got to feel our baby boy kick and watch him move around my belly. It was most fun. He moved for all to see the 2 times we talked to his Aunt Juju on her birthday. She is very proud of him being so smart and is already in love with him. I can't wait to see how he reacts to her once he meets her in person. I think I may have to lock him down to keep her from taking him from me!


This is the baby's room under construction. It was a bright yellow room and now it is a soft khaki color...Navajo Sand to be exact (Mama is painting her bathroom this color because she loved it so much). We picked out and installed a ceiling fan and cleaned all the office and exercise stuff out of the room. It is getting more real as the days go by!


I am going to have a little country boy. He is going to be so cute on this little John Deere tractor, peddling up and down the long drive. He is going to make his Daddy most proud.
Randall's parents brought this to us last weekend from their house. All the previous grandchildren and my niece and nephews have ridden this in their drive. They are letting us have it at our house and I think that is super sweet and speaks tons on how excited they are that their boy is finally having a baby!


Stay tuned for the name reveal coming up soon....I know you are on the edge of your seats!

I love the high chair! You did a fabulous job painting it. I love the fabric on it! I think the little tractor is precious! I am so excited for you.
