Updated Nursery Pictures

I had plans to post pictures from last weekend tonight, but time got the best of me and these were quicker to get together...there are not as many of them!
Tomorrow is my first day with the class of 2019. I met most of them on Friday at "Meet the Teacher" and it seemed to be a good group. Tonight I made our lunches and ironed a week's worth of clothes. I have set the timer on the bread maker and there is homemade yogurt in the fridge. I have morning duty for the first week of school and am determined to start the year by getting to school on time for once.
So...I leave you tonight with updated nursery pictures.

There is still a lot of work to be done, but the visiting Irishmen have left the country, so the transformation from guest room to nursery continued this weekend. (I could write a whole post about how bachelors are different from other house guests, but I'll save that for another time...)

The resident Irishman yet again resumed his swearing came out of DIY retirement and put the changing table back together. We have already rearranged the furniture since I took the pictures this morning. The round thing in the picture is a laundry basket given to us by one of Morgan's co-workers. It has a giraffe and elephant on it, but I think with a little decoupage, I should be able to make it work!

We still need the mattress, bedding, and wall hangings, but they are all in progress. It is coming together!

P.S. I plan to officially announce the baby's name later this week. Many of you know already because the Irishman and I cannot keep a secret, but we haven't said it online yet. = )
