Nursery 75% complete!

Finally, something completed! Mom made it up last Wednesday to help paint Lincoln's room (read: to totally paint Lincoln's room while I supervise, since I'm such a terrible painter). I helped as much as I could without making a mess!! She ended up staying until Friday, which I was ever so grateful for! It took us three days because we had to wait for each color to dry, but overall, I have to say, it was a LOT easier than I thought it would be. I tell you what, boys are MUCH harder to find cute stuff for! I'm not a real "themey" person, but all of the boy patterns that weren't a theme looked girly to me! Ashley actually picked out our bedding and at first I was totally against it.... Farm?? No way... But the more I looked at it, the more it grew on me. And I do love the quilt. Now that it's all together with the matching paint, I can't imagine it being any more perfect for our little Linc.

Coming Right Along!

So, to my surprise, our furniture came in on Friday!! Six weeks earlier than expected! It was delivered at 5:30, and we had it all assembled by 6:30. We were so excited (well, I was super excited, but Ash did most of the work)! Now I have a completely unpainted room, but at least it has furniture! And mom is coming up on Wednesday this week so we can get some painting finished. I had my first "mini-shower" today in Bowling Green with my "chatty" friends from college. I am so lucky to have such great friends...

We had a very nice lunch at Mariah's. I am SURE the lady that waited on us was ready to pull her hair out by the time we left! Afterwards, I met mom and dad for dinner and picked up my quilt that Jennifer Bates embroidered for me. She does a wonderful job!

So, when I finally got back to Evansville, I took my new things upstairs and arranged them into baby Lincoln's room. It was so strange! And then I got all excited!! I couldn't stop moving things around and decorating! I can't wait for paint!

You know, I have to say, I have had such an easy time with pregnancy so far. I haven't been sick one time! No back pain, no heartburn... I can't think of one complaint! But I have to say, this swelling issue - Oh My! It started in my feet, and it has traveled everywhere! You can now tell it in my face, my arms, my knees, everywhere! My feet actually look like extremely large sausage links that have been clumsily stuffed into shoes. B-E-A-utiful...

The old man where I bought baby furniture commented that, this being my first baby, I sure am "gettin a late start ain't ya??" Happy 28th birthday to me!
