We had an exciting baby-related weekend.

First of all, Scott spent the weekend at what he has been calling his "Baby Bachelor Party"! He and a bunch of guys from work traveled down to Connecticut to the casino after work on Friday to witness a few boxing matches and gamble. Everyone had a great time, won a bunch of money, and even saw a guy get knocked out in 21 seconds! He got home at 6:30am on Saturday and spent Saturday recovering. I think he may have stumbled onto a concept that many soon-to-be-dads would appreciate!

While Scott was living it up a couple of states away, Lisa and her mom were sewing up a storm, creating things for the nursery. We still have a ways to go before the nursery is finished, and so we planned another day real soon to get together, but here are a few items that we finished this weekend.

First, we created a foam filled, vinyl covered changing pad for the top of the changing table:

Then, we made a cover for the changing pad. I'll make more of these before the baby arrives, but the first one came out awfully cute!:

We made lots of headway on the crib bumper (we still need to finish the ties to secure it to the crib). I think this is our favorite project so far! Aww...

We also made a matching crib skirt:

At the end of the day on Saturday, we were both pretty tired, but excited about our progress!

We still have a few larger projects in the works, so watch for those posts in the coming weeks. We are working on the curtains, crib sheets, hanging organizer, cross-stitched birth record, more changing pad covers, laundry bags, and more!

Thanks so much, Mom! We appreciate all your help so much!
