Well. I think I finished the baby's room. I mean, there aren't a ton of decorations, but I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, I think. We will see.
|and now we have painted the walls yellow..|
|the start of my argyle wall|
I can't take credit for creating the argyle wall all by myself, though I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I did some google searching and came across this site that did a decent job explaining what was going on. The slightly perfectionist side in me would definitely make some changes if I was doing it again, but you know what? I'm almost 33 weeks pregnant and don't care and think it looks great.

|DONE. and Lily helping make sure the crib is safe for Bob|
|so, a view from the door..I don't think the swing will live in the room, though. probably in the living room to start, but we will see. I need to slowly break Jesse into the idea of lots of random baby things scattered throughout the house again ;)|
|closet and table with a lamp. yes, this wall needs decorations. probably will wait until we find out if Bob is a boy or girl..|

That's about it for tonight! Just wanted to show off my wall. I think that completing the baby's room was important and a big deal to me because I didn't get to do it when we were waiting for Lily to arrive. I loved decorating her room after she was old enough to understand-- and now she points to all the zebras on her wall and declares "horse!"-- but there is something about the waiting/anticipating/preparing somewhere for your baby, even if you know that s/he won't be sleeping in there for a few weeks..
I need ice cream before I go off on a hormonal rant about random things in the being a mom and pregnancy realm. g'night!
