We're Ready for Ya, H3 (well, kinda)

Three more weeks, people!! And Baby Hertzler (who we've affectionately dubbed H3) will be here. We're super excited. Seriously. We CAN.NOT.WAIT. to meet H3. Mitch and I had a discussion the other day about his/her room. And yeah, we decided it's definitely not on the "must-do" list. (There's the living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and mudroom that need our attention...yikes!!) Baby will sleep in our room in a bassinet for a while and really, there's no rush to finish the nursery. If it's a boy, it's not really going to change much at all. If it's a girl, there will be changes made. Which the prospect of more work is making Mitch cringe. It won't change much. We'll just add a sparkly chandy where Ry's ceiling fan was and throw in some pink in the mix. No biggie. (I say that now.)

And the boys are adjusting superbly to their new environment. They love being together in the same bedroom. I was really nervous about the whole thing, but they're champs and doing SO WELL together. Ryder literally falls asleep right away. Sometimes we hear Bryce singing/talking to himself and have to go in and tell him to go to sleep, but he's not disturbing Ry at all. That's a huge relief. I was picturing our lives in total chaos dealing with a newborn and two brothers who fought every night while going to sleep. It's such a relief to not worry about them.

We have a super cool idea for the boys' ceiling. You remember Ry's ceiling treatment? Well we wanted something just as cool (and inexpensive) as his and I think we finally came up with it. I'm going to keep ya in suspense, but just know--it's a awesome idea and if we can pull it off, it's gonna look awesome too...eek! So excited!

I'm waiting to put things on the boys' walls until I know exactly what we're doing in there (plus I think I have to gather more stuff for their walls). I'm thinking gallery walls personalized to each boy. It'll be fun collecting stuff that's uniquely "them".

So that's all for now. I had to use Mitch's computer for this post cause my laptop died. Darn technology! So hopefully it'll be up and running soon and I can check back in with you shortly. If not, have a great weekend:)


  1. OH MY bless your heart. Baby is filling up all the tummy space. LOL You look so cute.
    I can't wait to see the boys room all done.
    WOW you are so strong, I would not be able to NOT KNOW what my baby was, in this day and age. My daughter is just like me too. When she was pregnant with her first, she ordered an online preg test, she knew at a very early stage that she was having a girl. The test was spot on too. She had a girl. She wanted to have the room all done *hyper active since birth. LOL* and wanted to have lots of clothes bought. Then when she got pregnant with her son, two years later, she ordered another test, 40.00 each and it was spot on again. It said BOY and she had a boy. I would have to know!!! Good for you, for waiting. Did you wait with the boys?

    1. Donita, we didn't find out with any of our babies. Love it that way! It's so thrilling:)

  2. Look at those boys. So stinkin' cute! And look at you! So stinkin' pregnant. And still you manage to complete 10 times the number of projects I could ever hope to try. You are amazing!

    1. Thanks, girl! Mitch is the one who deserves the praise...the guy is constantly working on something. I help when I can. (BTW, your girls are so stinkin' cute too!!)
