The 60's!

We are in the 60's - 66 days left to be exact!  Yikes, entering 32 weeks and panic starts to set in. We have waited so long to be here and now it feels so surreal and a bit overwhelming.  Those of you whom have hit this point before us know the feeling for sure.   We will be back in Delhi in six weeks..gulp! 

Yesterday we painted the baby's room and built the crib.  It was awkward for us, as we have never really been able to successfully plan and create a nursery.  This picture shows the crib that Bo and Amy bought for us - turns out it is HUGE when built in our house - did not look so big in the warehouse sized showroom!  It is difficult to see but we painted the walls a light silver colour.  The sun was pouring in when Mark snapped this pic and it looks like we tried to make the walls look like clouds.  We have a mattress on our registry, so if we do not get it as a gift we will pop over and buy it before we head to India.

This week our last stage installment is due, and again, I feel like a broken record but we never thought we would get to this point.  It is amazing to get the email from the accountant reminding us of our payment due - never thought I would be so happy to get invoices every 8 weeks!

My Big Fat European shower is in a few weeks.  Looks like we will have about 40-50 women attending which is huge!  We also have a henna artist coming to add a touch of India.  I cannot wait to see all the older gals reaction to this!

  1. Whoo Hoo!!!! Congrats on the 32 week stage!! We are a few weeks ahead but know exactly what you mean when you say "never thought you'd get to this stage", as its our 4th attempt aswell. We fly to Delhi a week on Tuesday! 10 days!!!!! arghhhh, feel really nervous now about actually handling our little bundle of joy! When do you arrive in Delhi as we're there till September 20th, hopefully we can catch up! All the best for the next 6 weeks!!

  2. Wow that big shower sounds awesome! You'll have to show us pics from that, for sure :)

    The crib and room look awesome! I haven't put the crib together yet but I'll be painting another, final coat up on the walls this afternoon! I went with something similar to yours, mine is called "Silver Mauve." Looks exactly like this: http://images.myperfectcolor.com/repositories/images/colors/MPC00009354-1.jpg
