Mommies to be check in

Danielle - I know I didn't loan them out but we just moved over the summer and while the house was on the market we had stuff stored at my parents and his parents and then we got a storage unit that is packed floor to ceiling, front to back. I had left what I thought was all the clothes at the front of the storage unit but the 0-12 stuff isn't there. Its too cold to go unpacking and repacking the whole storage unit and with stuff still at the parents houses, it could be anywhere, so I guess Shayne will be getting all new stuff : )
I am not brave enough to take bare belly pics because I got terrible stretch marks with my first pregnancy, so here is a covered bump pic, this was last week, 34 weeks along:
Our nursery is green, I haven't taken any recent pics with the furniture in yet, but you can see the wall color in this one:
That's our new bassinet that my mom got, it has the music and vibration and it rocks or can be locked to not rock, I love it.
And this is our bedding:
(not the dark crib though, ours is natural wood color) I had looked at the same bedding as you Danielle, but my mother-in-law has called my older son "Turtle" as a nickname since birth so I didn't think I should do turtles for Shayne. I went with this one to add some darker colors since the room itself is so light. My husband is going to do a mural on the wall with a tree that we are going to make a family tree and have some monkeys hanging in it.
So, this past weekend I took my 4 year old to a sibiling preparation class and it was so cute. They taught them what life will be like when the new baby comes home, what toys would be good for the baby and what toys they shouldn't share just yet as well as all about not sharing food with the baby. They also learned how to hold the baby and change a diaper using an anotomically correct doll, it even had the little piece of cord still on the belly button and they taught the kids that the babies belly button would be purple when he came home and then fall off. : ) It was really cute and my son was so excited. Last night I was in bed and very uncomfortable and my son came up and started rubbing my belly and said "Don't worry Mommy, baby Shayne will come out on my birthday in a few days (more like weeks) and then you will feel all better" It was so sweet.

Danielle, Margie, and Tami- Your bumps are adorable; I love seeing bumps. We need more pics of those around here ladies!
Tami- congrats on a girl, you must be so excited! I didn't even know you were pregnant!! I really need to catch up!
Margie- your 4 yr old is so cute! I have never even of a class like that around here. Your son is going to be a great big brother!
As for me, matt just started eating rice cereal last week and had his first fruit yesterday. He loves solids and I had no issues with him eating everything. The formula, on the other hand, is still kind of a struggle. He never wants to finish his bottles, but the doc said it's pretty normal for him to lose interest. He's also starting to want to sit on his own, so hopefully any day now he will be able to!! Here are some recent pics of him:
