all appliances are in!

(disclaimer -- this should be an update about my baby shower, but since I don't have any photos yet, it's about my appliances!)

All appliances are in!

Last week, Scott installed our dishwasher. The only thing left was the microwave, which has been in our home for over a month. It started in the dining room, was moved to the living room, and made it to the office where it remained... until today. With a little help from a friend, our kitchen is (almost) complete!

aaaand one last thing...

Scott thinned out the carrots in our garden, by removing these delicious sticks. The next batch will be heftier with just a little more space and growing time.

It's been an exhausting but fun Memorial Day weekend. We could all use a nap.

maternity session

A fellow social worker, Harper Levy Bauman, came to our home today to take a few photos of us in this exciting journey. Here are some of the shots, as well as a link to her blog where there are tons of other great photos.

Thanks, Harper!

SO many things...

This post should be broken into several posts -- but I'm super tired so I'll throw it all into one (and maybe get away with mostly posting photos!)

Exciting update #1:
My sister Melanie and my niece Adora came to visit for a week! During that time, my nephew Preston turned 1 and we had a birthday party at my mom's house. It was my birthday, too, but I didn't mind being overshadowed by the super cute kiddos. It was only a preview of what's to come

Sweetest girl in the world

Exciting update #2: Our kitchen is going to be completed one of these days! Scott and Jeff installed my range yesterday (forget that it had been sitting in our living room for a week -- Adora didn't seem to notice, which was very funny!)

new range... next in will be the refrigerator and dishwasher -- and soon enough, the granite!

I did, however, manage to come up with a microwave on my floor -- fortunately, it's significantly smaller and will (hopefully) soon be installed.

see, much smaller than the range!

Exciting update #3: Our garden is growing! Scott was able to eat his first collard greens and bok-choy from our garden. Which reminds me, I need to water it for him tonight :)

Also growing is the tree that we planted on my birthday last year -- strangely enough, it's not the only thing growing!
