Pictures, Finally!

Well, I will start with the pictures of our newest addition - even newer than the playroom. Here is Reagan Dai...born Monday, July 21 at 9:26 am.
And here is big sister, Lindsey, holding Reagan in the hospital.

I can't believe she is here. I just posted about moving the toys into the playroom the night before she was born. We had planned to induce on the 5th of August (that gave me two more weeks to get things ready). But Reagan apparently had a plan of her own. We are so happy that she has joined our family and that she is happy and healthy.

Now for some pictures of the finished playroom and mess that went in there.

I thought that I had pictures of the new room with everything in it but I guess I don't. Something about being in the hospital for a few days last week has prevented that from happening. I will try to add those new pictures soon.

The Finished Room and the Mess to Go In It

Well, we are now finished with the playroom. We have had everything installed and inspected. The carpet is down and the fan is up. The touch-ups of paint were done on Wednesday night. We are so excited. I would love for you all to see it but for some reason the computer is not letting me post pictures right now. I have pictures of the finished room and the way too many toys in the living room. I will try to post them sometime soon, if the computer cooperates.

On Saturday, Robert and I had the chance to go through all of Lindsey's toys and sort them into piles. There was the pile to keep, the pile to give away or sale, and the trash (Robert's favorite pile!) Of course, Lindsey was not here for the initial throw away. But she did help once she came home and we got rid of even more toys and junk. Then Saturday night, we were able to move things out to the playroom. I was thrilled to get the mess out of the middle of the house and into its new home. I'm sure things will move again before they find their final resting spot but it is wonderful to see the changes. We still need a good bookshelf for all of the books we have accumulated, so if anyone knows of a great deal, let us know.

Now, Robert's job is to get up in the wonderfully cool attic and bring down the rest of the baby stuff (preferably before baby arrives). I'm sure he will jump for joy at that thought!
