River Anneliese Golder

River Anneliese Golder was born on May 6th at 12:50am, 6 days after her due date. After about 12 hours of labor we met our beautiful baby girl. She was such a sweet surprise to me because I thought I was having a boy the whole pregnancy (we never found out the gender of this baby). I would have loved a brother for Hunter but am beyond happy that I got my baby girl. 
These past almost two months have gone by so fast. I'm trying to soak it all up and really cherish every moment with her as a tiny baby because I know how quickly she will grow. 
She is such a good baby, very mellow, happy, loves watching her brother and is a great sleeper! Hunter also can't get enough of his baby sister and is always giving her kisses, wanting to hold her and so far hasn't shown any signs of jealousy. 

It has been quite an adjustment going from one to two babies. I've had some rough days and moments that have taken a toll on me physically and emotionally. I feel like I'm finally coming out of the exhausted, sleep deprived, newborn transition period and am really learning to take each day at a time. All the laundry, dishes, cleaning and messes can wait because more than anything my babies need me.

My brother and his wife just had their third girl last Saturday. Its been fun having kids the same time most of my siblings are (time to catch up Michelle!! jk ;) I love that all the cousins get to grow up together.
We are still waiting for our bundle of joy to show up, going on almost 5 days overdue....maybe we'll have a Cinco De Mayo babe! :O

Project 52: A photo once a week to document our daily lives
Week 17
We've been working on fixing up our backyard recently and I can't wait to have it some what ready for summer. Hunter loves to "help" outside especially if it's something with his Pa. I love watching him follow him around and mimic what he does. I'm so blessed to have such an awesome hubby who is also an awesome Daddy.

Nesting and a bathroom makeover

My husband thinks I'm crazy. I did this mini makeover on our second bathroom (which will become the kids bathroom when they get older) in about two or so days, last week (I'm 39 weeks). So maybe I am a little crazy. He doesn't understand this thing called nesting, sometimes I don't either. I get ideas/projects in my head and can't sleep until I do them. Like I've said before this pregnancy is making me a little OCD, if that's what you want to call it.
Anyway, this bathroom has been boring me so I decided to give it a little mini makeover with a very small budget. I didn't do any major construction just a little paint here and some DIY decorating. I love how it turned out!
Here is the best shot of this tiny bathroom after the makeover.

 Here are some before pictures, bad lighting, ugly wall stencil, boring.

 I painted over the ugly wall stencils three white strips with some white semi-gloss paint we had lying around. I found the two hooks in our master closet, gotta love old houses (Score!). The shelf was just a piece of 2x2 that was already stained laying on our side yard, thank goodness for a hubby who hoards ;) Just kidding babe I'm glad you keep random stuff like this, never know when you might need it! I made the starburst mirrors with a bunch of popsicle sticks I stained and hot glued them to the back of two mirrors I bought that came in a pack of 7 mirrors from Target. I got the tiny succulent from World Market for $3. Everything else I used to decorate I already had at home, so I probably spent about $15 total to makeover this bathroom.
