Here is a quick tour of Guillermo David’s room. I think it as turned out so cute! The great thing is that most everything you see here is gifted or loaned, we have been so blessed by friends and family! We found out yesterday at the Dr. that the latest he will be allowed to come is the 19th. If I make it to 40 weeks (next Wed), I will get an ultrasound and see how things look. If they look good, I’ll be allowed to go to 41 weeks. If conditions are not adequate or he doesn’t arrive by 41 weeks, he will get an eviction notice. I’m having a few more signs of early labor, so hopefully he will come around his due date.
Everything came together so cute and matching! I found the fabric to make a cover for the couch at a fabric store after almost giving up on finding an already made sheet set.
This is the changing table Guillermo made- it turned out awesome! A friend is making the cushion to go on top and we will find some little shelves to go underneath to hold diapers etc. Our good friends Jose and Karla stopped by to drop off the curtains that Karla made. They match great with some bedding I got at a baby shower in CO.
Need a little inspiration? These are on the bedside table: a card someone gave me that I loved, a Che Guevara figure that Guillermo had, and 2 kids Bibles (not pictured). The card says: “Just when you think you know Love, something little comes along to remind you just how Big it really is…. a beautiful little baby.”
His crib is one that many in our church community have used. The original family’s kids are now in high school, but they have passed the crib from one family to the next. Its previous user was Guillermo’s cousin’s daughter. She (Jessika) is also the one who made this awesome mosquito net! Living here we see year round bugs, so most babies use some kind of a net over the bed. She put her finishing touches on the white net, adding the top cover and button decorations. The poster on the wall is something Guillermo got from his dad when he was little, it says “Daddy, thanks for sharing your life with me because from the first moment, you wanted us to be friends.” So special!

Suitcase for hospital-check. Car seat-check. Diaper bag-check. The cute calendar is from Tia Carmen.
His closet is organized and ready with clothes, diapers, blankets, bath stuff and more. We’ll have to hang his welcome sign too.
