Hayes Happenings

Somehow I am surrounded by sickies and have managed to stay healthy. While I am grateful for that, I'm also ready for Moses and Jeremiah to get well. Moses has a lingering cough that keeps him up half the night and just as Jeremiah was getting well he now has something else. I'm just hoping it's not strep throat and that Moses and I manage to not get it. I would like to send a memo out to humanity: If you are ill, stay home. Thank you!
On to happier news: THE NURSERY IS DONE! Waa hoo! And, go figure, the camera has bit the dust. These pictures, taken with my phone, will have to do.
Here are those sweet flowers I told you all about. We painted them pink and cream and I think they turned out lovely!
We searched high and low for a side table and settled on this one from Target. It was the color of Pepto Bismol so Jeremiah was nice enough to paint it for me.
Sigh, so so cute!
And her name, hanging right over the sweet changing table that belonged to my dad.
This is odd, Moses was born the day before my dad died and this sweet little lady is due the day after his birthday.
We have named the little miss Sarah Elizabeth Hayes. We just love it and it feels like it is what her name is supposed to be. BUT! If we see her and feel like it just doesn't fit we aren't afraid to change it!
Less than SIX WEEKS!! The end of this pregnancy is much more uncomfortable than round one and the "3am dates" have returned. While I would rather have a full nights sleep, no feet in my ribs and be able to waddle around pain free.. it's really not that bad. All part of being a mama, right?! And in just a few short weeks I will have to share this little lady, right now I've got her all to myself :)

Love it, Susan. Can't wait to meet her. The dresser also turned out beautifully. Good job!!

Her room is BEAUTIFUL and so is her name! Love it all! Hang in there, you're almost there- but you're right, you'll never get to experience her the way you are right now!

LOVE the name! So excited for you. :) Are you still coming to the Q this weekend? I'd love to see you!

I was a little sentimental reading through this last post. It seems like only yesterday we were preparing and picking a name for Judah! Time flies so fast! I don't think it will ever get old preparing for another little one. Truly what a treasure they are! The room turned out lovely! And I love her name. I knew, just knew, Elizabeth would be a part of it! Sarah Elizabeth Hayes...awwwwww!!

I came across your blog through Sarah Sloans blog. I thought it to be wired that I would write something about your blog. But I could resist when I heard that you were naming your baby Sarah Elizabeth...that is my sisters name too! So cute.:)

Thanks ladies!!
And not weird at all, Julianne! I'm so glad you like it! :)
