Transformation of the Basement to the Office

You've seen the nursery ... and here is where we put all that cluttery office stuff ... in our brand new basement office. Glenn worked so so hard for a solid 2 months on this. He originally thought he would get it done "oh, in about two full weekends" ... ha. It required a lot more detail work than he was anticipating. Needless to say he was glad to finish this project. The nursery was a sinch. I was so ready for him to get to the nursery so I could start decorating and putting things away and organizing everything to get ready for the arrival of Baby Boy O. Here you go -- I think it looks amazing. I'll spare you all the "in between/ work in progress" photos -- but here are the Before and After.

The handy man himself! Hard at work.

Photos! Nursery and the ever growing Baby O belly ;-)

I can't believe how fast time has flown by bc I didn't realize it has been over a month since I last posted. The last belly pics I posted were at 29 1/2 weeks -- well, here are some more -- you can see Baby O is having a bit of a growth spurt. And I've also posted some of our basement and nursery transformations.

Here is the old office -- which is what soon you'll see becomes Baby O's nursery after a ton of hard work from Glenn

We've taken everything out and put in to our NEW downstairs basement office - and here is the interim work in progress

Ta Da .. all decorated and ready for Baby O to come home ... his bed is made and ready ... the theme is dogs/puppies. We love it

A lot more spacious and open than the cluttery office, huh?

The following pics are a bit backwards -- most recent belly pics first -- but you can still see the growth of Baby O

Wowza!! Here I am on 4/21/09-- at 34 weeks - just about 5 1/2 weeks to go

I am really starting to feel pregnant as you can tell -- this past week I have reallllly felt pregnant -- but overall still feeling great. I have been sooo lucky. This is same 4/21 (at 34 weeks)

My how fast 3 weeks has gone -- and how I've grown so fast in that 3 weeks -- this is on 3/28/09 at 31 weeks ... Mom was here this weekend for my baby shower so Glenn and I actually got to take a photo together (our first family photo ;-)) ...
