I’ve been meaning to post some pictures of the nursery since it has been pretty well finished for a couple of weeks now. There are a few other things to add. Maybe a couple more pictures, and Neal is painting the letters for the baby’s name - but, with particular reference to the latter, I thought I would take and post the pictures before the letters are put up on the wall because we’re trying to keep her name off the Net until she’s born. It’s a little silly, I suppose, since it’s hardly a secret. We’ve told pretty much everyone who has asked, but I just want to be able to post all of those first photos and announce her name at the same time.
Oh! And we’re also desperately trying to find a plain pink or green (since there is some green in the border) valence for the top of the window, but for some very bizarre reason, it has so far proven to be impossible to find anything like that. I don’t quite understand because it’s not like we’re looking for a kid-themed valence. Just plain. No pattern. But all we find are valences that either have a pattern or are in every other colour except pink or green. Truthfully, I’d prefer pink, but at this point, I would happily take green.
Also, we’re on the hunt for a little rug to put by the change table, also in either pink or green, to be determined I guess by the valence. I think I may soon give up on the valence hunt and will just go buy some material and ask someone to make the goddamn valence for me. I think that one of Brad’s (neighbour) relatives knows how to sew, as Nina mentioned it as a possibility.
Anyway! I’m not going to let those minor setbacks deter me from posting pictures of the nursery any longer! Sadly, the pictures do not properly convey how cozy it is in there, particularly in the evening when I have only the lamp on and I go to sit in the rocking chair.
And the border around the room since I doubt you can really make it out in those other pictures:
We’re pretty darn happy with our little nursery! Now we just need a baby to put in that crib!
Also, I thought I’d take this opportunity to post a baby bump picture. I have been pretty negligent on that, and it’s not because I’m shy about having pictures of my “bump”. I love my bump actually!
First, I have to post this one of me at 16 weeks - I may have posted this before, but it makes me laugh because I distinctly remember taking this picture quite a few times because I was convinced I was sticking my belly out more than it needed to be. After all, I was HUGE.
This is the one I just took tonight, and I am at 34 weeks:
Now THAT is a big belly!
