In the meantime, Dan headed back to Nashville after the graduation & shower and was able to get the baby's room painted while I was gone. I LOVE how the color turned out (hard to see in these pics though)! Then, when I got home we put the crib together. I just love it! We put it up on Saturday, and Sunday morning I did a double take when I walked past the room...it's a little surreal to see a crib in my home.
I also found a Moses basket that she'll be able to sleep in for the first little while. We thought it would be handy to have her in our room at first, and for only $10, I won't feel bad about getting rid of this once she's in her crib.
Our carseat & stroller!! Dan's generous Aunt, Uncle, & Grandma had this sent right to our doorstep. I can't wait to get it put together!
My house is quickly filling up with all of these items, and I am blown away by the generosity of our friends and family. A huge thank-you to all of you who came to my shower in Missouri and who continue to send gifts for this little girl. I can't wait for you all to meet her! And with all of these reminders sitting around, I'm realizing how close we're getting now. Only 2 more months and I'll get to see her sweet little face. Talk about anticipation.

You've taught me many life lessons, Dad, and today I want to thank you for a few of those:
And last but certainly not least, you taught me many lessons about life...and death.

Yuliya enjoying some Ukranian borscht she made for us -a type of beet soup that was delicious! She also made that salad on the plate which I was a bit less fond of - mayo, pickles, bologna, peas, potatoes. Apparently it's a dish they always serve at a holiday meal. I also made some rolls, which seemed to pass as Ukranian according to Yuliya - she just added some olive oil & fesh garlic for dipping.
