29 weeks and a peek at the nursery!!



Here's what little miss is up to this week!

A is growing rapidly now. This week she weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. Her muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and her head is getting bigger to accommodate her growing brain — which is busy developing billions of neurons.

She is so active...kicking me (or rather punching me) all of the time. I love feeling her move around. As soon as I bring Alex over to feel her kick, she stops. (LOL) I think it's a game she's playing with us. She is very active in the mornings, so this morning I had Alex come put his hand on my stomach and she kicked really hard. His eyes just lit up and he got this huge smile on his face. He said, "I felt that!" :)

Let me just tell you, my man is a man of his word. Remember, he promised he would start working on A's room after his work project was complete? Well, I woke up this weekend to the smell of paint! He has worked so hard. He stored the bed and mirror, painted the entire room, and then put her crib together. Such a good Daddy! Here are some pics of the progress he made on her nursery. You can click the picture to enlarge.



So what do you think!?? We ended up taking a Tiffany's box into Home Depot and they matched the color perfectly. It looks a little different in pics, but in person the color is spot on. I LOVE IT!! It's so fun and cheerful in that room...we just sat in there and talked for the longest time. Every time I walk by the room, I get a huge smile on my face. I can't help but thank God over and over for the baby girl that we'll be bringing home in November!

We have no clue where the furniture is going to go. Bless Alex's heart...he moved everything to every wall and we still haven't made up our minds. The chair is ordered. Once it arrives, it will help us make up our minds. I'm looking forward to adding her bedding and the accessories that I've picked out. This room just might come out to look exactly like the picture in my head. :) I'll continue to share pics as we add new things!

Love,

WOW!! He got a lot done! I love the color_ and love blue for girls. My favorite outfits for Abigail were girlie blue things.
I'm considering a torquoisy color for the bonus room.
