Shopping, quilting, and T's bedroom

So, Trayton, Deklan and I were on a shopping trip to Toys R Us to shop for birthday party present a couple weeks ago and we happened to walk past the baby department...Deklan and Trayton both found some things they thought their sister might like.  It was fun to see them so enthusiastic.  We didn't buy anything as we don't know how old or what size our baby will be, but it was sure fun for all of us to window shop and "dream" a little.

As many of you know, we have been collecting quilting squares from our friends and family to make what is called a "Bai Jia Bei" or "100 Good Wishes Quilt."  This is such a special project to us.  So far we have been sent 23 squares.  It is so fun to go to the mail box and get a square in the mail.  We look forward to discovering all the rest of the squares still to come, but here is what we have so far.  Each square represents a good wish someone has written for our little girl - so sweet!  Thank you!  All the good wishes along with a sample of the quilt squares and pictures of the "well wishers" are made in to a memory book.  I have included 2 pages from her memory book just for fun...

Ahhh, so it's been a couple weeks.  Trayton's bedroom is almost done.  We need to paint the closet area to match the rest of the trim and we are still waiting for the window coverings.  After that, we need to get all his new furniture in... Hopefully only a couple more weeks.  But, from the last time you all saw it on here, it is much closer to being done. Drywall is done, paint is on the walls (I grew some gray hairs doing that!), built in desk is in, carpet is in... Right now, the room is being used primarily for rolling on the floor and wrestling. Hee Hee!
