35 Weeks and Nursery Tour

I'm 35 weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 35 Weeks
Size of baby: Hollis is around 5.25 lbs - about the size of a honeydew melon
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 16 lbs
Maternity Clothes: I wear maternity jeans and pants but everything else is regular. I'm down to just a few things I can still fit into. ha!
Gender: It's a girl!!! Hollis Barrett Stamps
Movement: She is VERY active - especially in the afternoon and at night
Sleep: I'm sleeping pretty good!
What I miss: Nothing really - maybe sleeping on my stomach? Or bending over? ha!
Cravings: I've lost my appetite lately - I think maybe my stomach has run out of room?
Symptoms: Lately I've been having a lot of pressure - mostly because she is low and it's the second pregnancy. I have a hard time walking or moving period. ha!
Best Moment this week: Getting rest and things done while my parents kept Harper - such a blessing!

I've reached the point where strangers are commenting on how big I am. ha! I went a few places yesterday and several people walked up to me and said "Wow - you are ready to pop" or "Whoa - you've gotten big since the last time I saw you (said the T J Maxx girl) ha!" I told Scott that when people ask me when I'm due out in public - I'm SOOOOO tempted to say "What do you mean? I'm not pregnant?" ha ha ha ha! Just to enforce the rule that you NEVER ask unless you know for sure! ha! ha!

I've shared bits and pieces but as of last night Hollis' nursery is finally finished! So I thought I would share!

Looking in the room from the outside - I know these aren't typical girl colors but I LOVE how it turned out.
The day bed and the mirror with her monogram hanging above it
Her dresser and the frame I had made special from http://www.prairielaneboutique.com/
My friend Amanda made the cornice board that is hanging above the drapes. I love how it turned out!!!
I had her bedding made at www.polkatotdesigns.com and I think it's just perfect. Harper thinks so too - she climbs up in this bed at least 100 times a day. I can't keep her out of it. ha!
One side of her closet with her 0-3 months clothes hanging. Almost all of these were Harper's but I have bought a few new things for Hollis. (Several with her name on them - how could I resist?) ha! I want her to have a few things that were just her own!

Hollis' room is completely different than Harper's room and I had so much fun putting together both rooms. I wonder if this is a foreshadowing of how completely different my two girls just might be? :-)
