Update; before & after pics

We are still here, taking it one day at a time. We have recently gotten back from our third trip to St. Louis where we have met with sooo many drs. Baby is growing and developing very well and already weighs over 5pounds! (Nearly as much as I weighed when I was born). Baby Itty Bitty will definitely have to have "balloon procedure" done right away as there is lots of flappy tissue around the small opening between right &left sides of heart. This tissue tends to want to close over the hole right away & in our baby's case this needs to stay open until surgery. Surgery could be anywhere from day 2 to day 7 of baby's life. First night in NICU and the remainder of time in the CICU(cardiac intensive care unit). We should be able to have an inducement date soon. They are thinking sometime the 2nd week of Nov. Not much longer! Thinking about the reality of it all and seeing our precious baby undergo so much brings about lots of scared and nervous feelings as we get closer to "D" day. But, we continue to trust in the Lord and know that He will help see us through. Please continue your prayers as we anxiously await our miracle.

"Pig Roast" celebration Labor Day weekend.

Brothers, will there be another brother joining the Peters' boys clan? We'll find out soon enough!

Me: 35wks preggers.

And now for some before & after "nesting" projects. This is a pic of the buffet I am standing in front of before I got my hands on it.

My kitchen before. I have been dying to get my hands on it and always visualized the after in my brain.

My $100 kitchen makeover. What a huge change huh!?!? Took me a week to work over those cabinets but sooo worth it in the end. Amazing what an electric sander and some paint can do!

Vintage table found for $3 bucks at garage sale, now in a fun fabulous turquoise

Coffee table before and...

After w/top of Maxy's head. The paint is called black leather but looks a little navy in this photo.

Cool chair I revamped but could not find the before photo.

Boy's room/pad. Before. Stay tuned for after. It's almost done.

Nursery. Before. Oh Lord. We do at least now have crib set up
with clean sheets and bedding :) Stay tuned for the after coming very soon.
