Nursery Pictures :)

Even though it isn't done, I have to say everything is coming together beautifully. My parents are coming for a visit this evening & will be putting another crib together. My mom is also going to make her WONDERFUL pizza! I'm excited!!!

I just wanted to share some pictures with you of our 1st crib, dressers, & how the nursery has progressed in the past few days.

This is the bedding that each will have. The bumper is reversible so the middle crib will have the polka dots showing.

I love this dresser & it can grow w/ the girls since there is enough drawers & it will match their beds.

Jesse & Todd worked so hard to get this stripe on the 3 yellow walls. You can also see the start of the dots being painted on the walls.

This is the dresser/changing table. I didn't see any point in getting a changing table & then not using for anything later on.

I'm going to have to get more pictures as they put the furniture up in the room tonight. I'm so excited!

Oh I love the furniture!! I wish we could find a dresser/changing table like that... it's exactly what I've been looking for.

The knitted blanket with the zig-zag stripes made me smile... I have one just like it in pink and white that was MY baby blanket. :)

Great idea on the dresser/changing table! I got my crib/dresser/table as a set though.

So cute!! I'm so excited for you!

It looks great!! I am just in love with that bedding, so cool!!! I agree with the changing table thing too, especially with 3 cribs you start to run out of room and really have to go for the functional pieces. We ended up not even getting something to change them on, we would always use the floor, bed, ottoman.......so we just decided to not buy anything.
Everything is going so great, I am so excited for you guys!!

I'm Susanne and I follow your posts on the triplet forum. I have to say I am SO EXCITED for you! You're doing GREAT! I have been so concerned ever since you posted about cervix stuff and am thrilled you are so far along!!!!!! YIPPEE!!

Just wanted to say I felt much the same way you do. I actually lost weight in the hospital b/c I was just so sick and tired all the time. Right about where you are I just woke up, spent all my energy getting ready, napped, ate, napped, ate, napped...and then slept ALL night. I couldn't believe how exhausted I was. I felt almost immediately better after they were born. SO...all this to say it is normal and actually a good sign (b/c they are growing!!) and it will pass. I actually think that even the sleep deprivation following their birth wasn't as bad as those last 4 weeks of pregnancy (I delivered at 31.6). HANG IN THERE know you're doing a GREAT JOB!!!

Astrid- the furniture is just gorgeous! I love your idea aboutt he dresser/changing table. I'm gonna have to keep that in mind when buying ours. I feel for you on the small meals, nausea, and acid reflux. i got that going on here too and I'm only carrying 1 little one, I can just imagine how uncomfortable you must be! In my book you are SPW!!!! Hang in there sweets, you're getting so close. Todd is a doll for all the work he's doing. What a great dh and daddy! Love you gf! N~
