As I said before, my mom has been here helping to get things ready for BABY ... (she had to leave yesterday and I miss her so much already!) I told her the only reason I was letting her go back to Mississippi is because I knew she would be back in a couple of weeks when Raleigh Grace makes her debut into the world!
She helped me clean the baby furniture and get it all ready...
After she left, I did Raleigh Grace's FIRST load of laundry-- I washed most of her newborn and 0-3 month clothes, some socks, washcloths, towels, sheets, changing pad cover, mattress cover, and changing pad liners. I still need to wash her blankets and some more little things but it was so fun washing and drying and hanging up/folding all her cute little things and feeling just one step closer to being ready for her arrival any day! :)

|what a blessed little girl already!|
|never have I ever seen so many pink things! :) <3 it!|
Since I washed the sheets and such I found it was an appropriate time time to "dress" the crib and changing table! Its coming together slowly but surely and get excited because I am going to show you a few sneak peaks!! The bedding just came yesterday also and I really LOVE it! The bumper is oober soft but the sheet is one of those that after you wash it it wrinkles times five thousand! I doubt I will ever have time to iron a crib sheet for heavens sake! ha! I will be reviewing it online since it wasn't cheap but that's really my only complaint. It really is beautiful in the nursery! (I am not posting full pics because like I said in an earlier post her nursery is NO WHERE near finished but maybe I will get it all done before her first birthday ha! I'm joking but not really ha!)
Feeling super motivated (or maybe intense nesting!?) I also decided to break out our fall decor and do a little fall cleaning!!! It has finally been feeling a lot like fall here in NC lately and I am loving it!! Hubs seemed a little concerned/surprised that I was already breaking out the Fall decorations but like I told him-- If I didn't do it now then it might not get done until after Halloween (been there done that!) ha! :) I haven't taken any pics of that so I will try to get some on here soon :)
Overall, very fun, productive day!! :) Now for a few sneak-peak pics of the nursery ;) (all pics from this post taken with the trusty iphone, sorry for the somewhat mediocre pic quality!)
