I've been doing a lot of painting lately. My friend (who is also an interior designer) has been helping me pick out the *right* paint colors as well as actually painting my house with me (we were working until 10:30 the other night...) My grand plans have been to:
1) paint family room/kitchen
2) paint downstairs half bath
3) paint master bathroom (which involves putting on primer because it's a dark color, hence...double work)
And then, you know, I thought, hey, we'll just slowly work our way through the other rooms. The nursery will be last because I have 14 1/2 weeks (!!!!) until Baby Boy #3 arrives.
But then I got to the house yesterday afternoon to accomplish #2 goal. The plumber was hooking up all the bathroom sinks and the other working guy was replacing light fixtures and hanging mirrors in the bathrooms. Soooo....now what? Well, ok, I guess I'll just do the nursery since I have the paint. Initially I was a little bummed that I was rearranging my goals but then I started working and it felt really good.
For the past month or so, I have barely been able to think about the baby. It's been all house, house, house...it felt really good to be preparing for my baby to come. I'm starting to feel that anticipation of "I just want to hold him!!!!" And gosh, forget about how that third kid gets jipped with all worn hand-me-downs and drab nursery decor! This boy is getting the best nursery of all thanks to that same paint-choosing interior designer friend who just happened to be getting rid of baby bedding that perfectly matched my nursery wall art!
So then later, I went to Target and picked out these:
Yes, I have tons of boy clothes in the right season. But I always allow the new baby to have something new to come home in. Dude...these clothes are SO TINY!!! And they will be TOO BIG!!! I stood in Target choosing these, and it's a good thing the baby section was empty because I was tearing up picking them.
Oh Baby I.C.S...I can't wait for you to come!!
