The day has come and I can honestly say we are ready for baby number three. Actually, just the room is ready. We don’t own a single diaper or wipe, but by all means – the perfect room is patiently waiting.

We are now in the fourth week of the One Room Challenge, and to say that we are ready for this room to be finished is an understatement. It’s one of the bigger items that needs to be checked off the baby to-do list preferably before Thanksgiving. The countdown is now on for this baby, and in less than four weeks, we get to meet the new he or she Baby Walther. The kids are ready, Mdub is ready, but I’m trying to wrap up as much work as possible; therefore I need about another 4 months instead of weeks!
Back to this sweet nursery. Remember that the gender of this baby is a surprise, thus picking colors leaves us skipping the traditional pink or blue. I saw this dresser about six months ago and knew the tassels had to be my inspiration.

It’s week 3 of the One Room Challenge, and that means two things: A – We are now halfway through the challenge, and B – We have less than less than six weeks until we are a family of five. Someone kick my booty into gear.
Neutral blankets have been washed, the closet has been stocked with wipes, and the carseat is clean and ready to go. All the important things – check, but the room, of course, always takes a little longer. And, nothing like waiting until the last minute. I work best under pressure!
I’m calling this the “too much going on elsewhere week” so the nursery saw no progress. The only thing that happened is that the drapes came in. This next week is a big week so hopefully I’ll have more to show you next Thursday. Until then – just pray this baby stays put so we can finish up more than just this nursery.

It’s week two of the One Room Challenge and we’ve made some big time progress. Deedee to the rescue! My mom came into town and said she wasn’t leaving until the room was complete. Well, of course that wasn’t going to happen, but we at least got the room cleaned out and ready for the fun.
Let’s take a look back at what we started with……..I can barely look it’s so bad!
And today……still a long way to go, but all cleaned up.

I mean – maybe it takes this One Room Challenge each year to get me to blog. To be quite honest, I’ve just needed a break and to cut back on some things in my life. The older I get, the wiser I get about having too much on my plate, and this blog was one of them.
So, happy to be back, but it’s only for a short while since we are expecting baby number three, and I’m sure I will be overwhelmed once again. Speaking of baby number three, it also takes this challenge each year for me to get my booty in gear and get a room together in our own house. It really is true what they say – that poor third child!
