Checking Off My List

I received our 2009 blog book. Wow. I know it's just a book, but to me it's almost sacred. It holds so many thoughts and emotions of the hardest year of our lives. Glad to have it in my hands!

The only thing I would change about these books is I wish the pictures were bigger. It's fine though because I have these pics on my computer and most even printed out.


Colson's bedding is ready. I love it!
Right now I am using a cream crib sheet, but I think I'd like a brown one too.

We ordered a book shelf but still haven't painted the trunk. Can't decide on a color. ; ) The nursery is coming together, although I have no idea what I want to put on the walls. I couldn't decide when getting this room ready for Reese either. I keep thinking I'll know when I see it.

Thirty weeks!

I like being in the 30's. Makes me feel a lot safer. ; )
Me trying to get a sweet picture with Zach. Not happening. He is saying, "No, go away Mommy!"

Our little Mr. Independent...maybe Colson will be a Mama's boy. ; )


"Who makes mouths?" the LORD asked him...Is it not I, the LORD? Now go, and do as I have told you. I will help you speak well, and I will tell you what to say."

Exodus 4:11-12

Oh my gosh that bedding & crib is FABULOUS!!!!!!!! I love it so much! You look so good & am so happy you've made it to the 30's with ease. (you know it is easy for me to say with "ease" since I'm not the one with child! haha!) Love the picture with Zach.. I'm afraid my little Hudson will be the same way... He's only 10 1/2 months & I'm already seeing signs of independance!

I can see that I'm agreeing with everyone else: 1) You look so beautiful! and 2) Colson's bedding is beautiful, and his room will be perfect!
I'm continuing to pray for you. I can't imagine the emotions you must be feeling, but I hope it still comforts you to know there are so many people thinking of you and your family!

WOW on the book, is more than a book " Memories in your heart" A treasure about a princess for sure.
I like the bedding and I bet your new son will feel right at home laying there,I can just picture Zach peeking thu the crib bars at Colson.
I don't think I have ever commented before but I have been reading your blog for a long time and have prayed many prayers for you and will continue to remember you as you prepare to give birth to Reese's littlest brother

Linds said...

Oh no! I think Zach and Brayden are so alike! Brayden already pushes me away when I try to get kisses or hugs. And don't even think about pictures!

Paige said...

Katie! Love the bedding--- very regal looking. HAve you seen the paint faux finish type stuff that looks crackled...it would look great to do the brown crackle with gold undertones. would match the bedding perfect....and a little less "wow" than red!! love the belly shot- you are the cutest pregoo ever!!

Reese Ray said...

Gorgeous fabric! You should be an interior decorator and specialize in kid's bedding/rooms. Then you can give me fashion advice :)
Peace to you today!

Katie,

You look beautiful! I always love to see your wonderful ideas for your family and your home.

People always talk about the "terrible" two's that their children went through or are going through. (I wish they'd change that term to "trying" two's...) Anyway, for both of my kids it was the "trying three's" and I'm glad to say we all survived! ;-) There were moments I wasn't sure we would, but the kiddos are happy teenagers now (is that an oxymoron?). Keep your chin up during those trying times.

I'm praying for you!

Lea said...

Katie - you look awesome!

What's this about a 'blog book'? sounds interesting.

Really like Colson's bedding, btw. Beautiful!

Kristi said...

The crib bedding is gorgeous! And the crib..wow! I think a dark red trunk would look perfect! :)

You look absolutely adorable and beautiful.

The blog book is lovely and will be so special to you always.

Way cute bedding! And you look sooo cute preggers!!!!

Robin said...

Katie-
Can you show us a page of the blog book so we can see how big the pictures are. Also, about what do they cost for a year? I am thinking of starting a blog just so I can get the "scrapbook" at the end of the year. What a neat story of your family.
Robin

Courtney said...

i have a blog as well and am hoping to get this year turned into a book when my daughter turns a year old in July. Are you happy with the way your blog book turned out? i would love to see an example of the inside. what website did you order it through?
