When the heck did that happen??
Actually, Daryl joked that my belly practically "exploded overnight". I was standing in the baby's nursery, watching him work and chatting with him (kinda standing sideways to him), when all of a sudden he exclaimed, "Holy crap! Your belly got BIG! Go get me the camera!"
After he took the pics and showed me I think my reaction was, "Oh my God! You weren't kidding!" And to think, it only gets bigger!
Speaking of the nursery, Daryl is making fantastic progress in there! He's an animal! I keep telling him to take breaks or to stop for a while but he just keeps plugging along. He finished all the insulation AND put up (but didn't tape, etc.) almost all the sheet rock. It's slowly starting to look like a room again, and not bare bones.
And speaking of being productive, we also ordered the crib this weekend! What do you think?We also finally (I was being picky) chose the bedding to add to the registry. The colors stand out much better in person (I LOVE the combination of the chocolate brown, bright green and golden-tan color. It will look so good with the crib). I was anxious to do this so that we could pull a couple of paint chips from Lowe's to get an idea of what colors we'll be painting. I'm so excited!
As we start to tick things off the list, I feel so much better. I know we've got time, but really, it will start feeling like it's speeding by if we left all this to the last minute! We still have to order the dresser/changing table, but I figure we'll do that next month or so (so we don't go broke all in the same month. Ha!).
Oh and the best news of all? I'm halfway through the pregnancy! I hit 20 weeks on Sunday. Not that I'm trying to rush it, but there is something so satisfying about knowing the journey is half-complete!
