Onesie Party!

So just in time, my friends threw me a onesie party for Kevin on what ended up being the day before I went into labor. Everyone decorated several onesies and I got to choose my favorite as the "winner".

Here's everyone decorating at the table.

The food/present table.

Finished onesies laid out for me to judge.

Back to Amanda...

So now that the kitchen remodel is done, back to the reason you probably stopped by, to see pics of Amanda!

Here she is being cool...

This was one night she asked to go to the potty. She is all about Daddy lately, so I told Mike to take her. I turned the corner a few minutes later, and this is what I found! Like father, like daughter...

Last weekend we had some hot weather so I pulled out the pool I bought last year for her. It's a bit young for her now, but she still had fun splashing around in it.

We're done!

FINALLY. The cabinet guy showed up yesterday and finished everything that needed to be done.

Microwave & stove area:

New bar looking out into the dining room:

Fridge area (you can see the crown molding in this shot):

Dishwasher & sink area:

Just for reference, here's the "before" pics:

Finally some progress!

So the contractor came to install appliances last week and found the stove didn't fit, and the fridge fit EVER so tight. So I've been fighting to get the cabinet guy back out to adjust the cabinets. He finally showed up today and at least got the stove in. He's supposed to come back tomorrow and adjust the fridge area, as well as finish up everything else...

Here's the sink with new dishwasher installed.

Stove with new convection microwave above it.

Fridge area. The right side door doesn't open all the way and grinds against the wall. That needs to be fixed still.

Not much progress...

So not much progress happened this last couple of weeks. The backsplash got installed and the sink, but when the contractor came to do the appliances, we found they didn't fit. So now I'm back to fighting to get the cabinet guy out again to fix that problem. *sigh*

In the meantime, Amanda & I had a photo shoot together to capture this pregnancy. I am 35 weeks (will be 36 weeks on July 9) and thought it would be a good time to capture us together. Unfortunately I started swelling this week as well, so I think I look pretty fat in the pictures, but oh well!

My favorite of both of us:

Of just me:

Showing the belly:

Just Amanda. She actually got really cute near the end and we got some good pics of her
