nursery? check!

Yay!  The nursery is done!  

Thanks very much to my dear mother-in-law for painting all the blue parts on that wall!  I know that was quite a chore.  I finished the rest of the polka dots on the other walls this morning and painted the back of the shelf blue.  And thanks to my parents for the awesome bumper pad (it's "breathable" so I don't have to worry about my baby suffocating) and for the great blue hamper!  The nursery wouldn't be complete without 'em!

So, unless I'm forgetting something, I think it's all ready for this baby to move in!  Let's just try and get him turned first.


Last night, Chad and I tried several things to get this baby to turn.  We put headphones on my lower belly, along with a flashlight, and Chad also spoke to him to try and get him to move down.  It might sound crazy, but these are all legitimate methods that people swear work.  And he did make a lot of huge movements like he was trying to flip once he heard the music and daddy's voice and saw the light.  It's possible he may have turned, but I'm not sure.  He moves so much all the time that I really can't tell.  But we'll just keep trying incase he's still bottom first.  I also tried the "elephant walk" on my hands and feet, but that seemed to do nothing but kill my back.

The nursery looks SO good!

I hope those tricks work to get that little boy flipped!!I wish I had some useful advie.
Maybe the day he flipped to breech last week was the day you got your strech mark. :)

Wow--that perfect little girl nursery looks completely transformed and awesome for a boy!!! I love it! Praying that baby boy turns! The headphones worked for us with Cloe! Maybe he needs a different style of music! :)

Wow, that's a great looking nursery! I'm a person who loves to paint, and that is an incredible job!

Suggestion for getting baby to turn. Try being on all fours, arching your back and then dropping. Even if this doesn't work, it feels great on the back. The elephant walk sounds painful.

As Holland Hospital's "Safe Sleep" champion (yes, it's true, I'm not kidding), I'm impressed with the breathable bumper.
