Gretchen Rossi has officially hit the 39th-week mark in her pregnancy, and now it's down to the wire to get her and fiancé Slade Smiley's California home ready for their first child. In May, Gretchen shared that she decided to convert her combination office and dressing room into a nursery for baby Skylar. Since then, The Real Housewives of Orange County alum and her fiancé have been prepping the nursery with light pink and gray furniture (matching their opulent master bedroom), and now they're down to the final details.
"The house is almost ready, still need to do some finishing touches to the nursery, like hang the wallpaper and changing out some drawer pulls etc," Gretchen wrote in a recent Instagram post.
The RHOC mom-to-be also shouted out Slade, who "has been a huge help these past few weeks getting everything done around the house! (Including attaching everything to the walls after our scare of some earthquakes rolling through.)" As for Gretchen, "I have been majorly nesting! Getting rid of tons of stuff, cleaning every nook and cranny like a crazy woman and putting each room back together with our new rugs on the floor (from my favorite place @orianrugs) so she can crawl around and not be just on our hardwood floors."
Gretchen added: "It’s been a lot of work these past couple months getting the house ready, building cribs and bassinets, washing her clothes and building out her closet."
The fashionista has also been busy gathering all of the baby's products, including diapers and bottles for her arrival, washing the car, grooming the dogs, and washing all of the bedding in the house in preparation. "No wonder I had major cankles yesterday," she quipped.
These excited parents couldn't be more ready for their baby girl.
