Only a few more months to go!

Before I knew I was pregnant I had all of these ideas about how I'd document my pregnancy but here I am 6 months pregnant and only 2 pictures to show for it...where did the time go?

I am starting to come to the realization that this baby is coming sooner rather than later and we need to prepare NOW! It has been nice to feel motivated for once. We (Joel mostly) finally finished the coffee table and I love how it turned out. The boards are salvaged from Building Value and the legs are metal pipes from Home Depot. If you want to replicate it try to stick with as few pieces as you can, they start to add up quickly.

We have been buying the sweetest baby clothes lately. I keep having to talk myself out of buying newborn outfits because she won't have anything to wear when she's 3 months but they are just so much cuter when they're smaller. Joel was a little cowboy as a kid so his mom had to buy this horse onesie for the baby.

We also got this sweet little dress for her. I can't wait to see her in it!

Upstairs is a wreck but Harper's room is nearly finished. We chose a plum purple because the furniture is white. I thought it'd be a nice balance.

Our friends gave us the rocking chair and a little wooden chest. We already had a bookcase, the ottoman is from the living room, and my mom crocheted the rug for us.

This is just a sneak peak because we still need to get our crib and dresser. Things are starting to come together. We are getting excited and a little nervous but I can't wait to meet her.
