Rough Draft of the Nursery

I am finally updating my blog with 3 posts in a row so be sure and scroll down to the other new posts!
I am still not done with the nursery but it is getting there! I still lack some stuff on the walls but we are definitely gettting closer. As you can see below, we still have not even put the mattresses in there cribs. I am currently washing the crib sheet!
The wall hangings above the cribs are pictured below. The colors are not exactly how they show up here but you can get the idea. The border is green which is the same color as their changing table/bookcase. I painted the background a diamond pattern to match with the lattice pattern in the cutains. I thought this scripture was fitting for their nursery.
Picture below is a piece that I drew up and a guy at the flea market made for me. I picked out the paint color to match with the bumper pads. This piece will look a whole lot better once the 1970's computer is taken off...it is sitting where the changing pad will go. I also cannot wait to get some pictures to fill the picture frames on the top with! Hopefully we will not get those pictures for another 3-4 weeks!
I had to buy a smaller chair since our rooms are not huge in our house. This chair matched with the brown on the crib skirt. It is a rocker and glider which will hopefully come in handy!
My sister-in-law, Tina, is so creative with her gifts. She bought Reed and Braden their very first pair of 'cowboy' boots. The leather on them is so soft and they are John Deere boots. I think these will fit the boys around 9 months. The picture frames are ones that my friend Kandice made and they match perfectly with the nursery.
Needless to say, their Aunt Tina has already spoiled them rotten. She also bought them their own little chairs from Pottery Barn. I am getting their names monogrammed on the back. Thanks Tina!
Update on the boys: Two weeks ago, Reed was weighing 4 lbs. and Braden was weighing 3.8 lbs. They were a little concerned with the discordance between their weights so we have begun weekly monitoring. I didn't think a half pound was that big of a deal but it can be a problem with twins. So we are getting ultrasounds once a week and they have gone well these past 2 weeks. They check their movements, breathing, amniotic fluid, blood flow in the placenta, etc.. and they have 'passed' the previous 2 tests. We still need your prayers that these boys will continue to both grow and stay in my belly for another good 3 weeks. The bigger that Reed is the better for surgery! God is good and we know that He will provide but please pray! I feel great and know that I could carry these boys as long as they will cooperate. I am going to have to get onto them for giving me some lovely stretch marks...but I have only gained around 23 lbs so far. I welcome the stretch marks if that means they keep growing!!!!

Looking good! I need to come over and see everything in person before the babies come. We need to try to have a good girls night before you get super busy with the boys. It looks like you had two very nice showers! Maybe I'll run into you lucky girls eating your leisurely breakfast sometime soon!:)
