Preparations Gliding Along

As we hit 34 weeks, things are gliding along in the nursery … literally. Mom and I spent most of Saturday recovering the hand-me-down glider that Holly gave me in the cute fabric you see above. It's called “Hula-Hoops” but it reminds me of Froot Loops too. Neither of us are real seasoned pros at this, so we were very pleasantly surprised by the results we got which are amazingly good. And of course we had fun doing it together.

On Friday we received a gift from a college friend … a little green Vandy onesie, Vandy receiving blanket and Vandy baby bottle. Absolutely darling stuff.

And Matt spent most of his weekend in his shop, working on the end table. It's getting very close and we're both anxious to see it complete.
