Progression

Three posts in one day! I decided that I would do this and hope that people would get through all three rather than feel like it was a never-ending post!

Joe has been working quite hard on the room! We are very pleased with how it is turning out. The green is an olive green -- a light olive. With the white base and crown that we are going to be putting up, the new white door and white furniture it will look beautiful! The doors you see below will also be painted white. Just remember that the color doesn't play out nearly as nice on camera as it does in person! Once the room is done being painted we can start to assemble the crib. We have had the crib since November or so and it has been so hard not to just set everything up. My little man is going to have the nicest room in the whole house! I will post more when it is further along!

I have tried to help out where I can but it is difficult for me. When my body isn't sore from being "swollen" the fumes of the paint make me want to gag. I am working really hard at the sewing stuff but my back hurts too bad to sit for a long period of time. It is about time for me to get out of this chair and go rest ... pretty sad when you have to rest your back from just sitting. We have a lot to do in only two months ... and that is if he comes on time!!

I can't wait to see it in person. If you need any help, let me know...I can come sew if you need to lay down and just supervise. It will be so fun to have your room all ready for your little man to get here!

OK, so in Stampin' colors tell me the colors of little man's room? It looks wonderful, by the way!

I am so excited for you. I had my room ready 4 months in advance leaving me a complete, empty room for a long time to sit and have nothing to do in. It us definitely better to wait a while as you have. Looks like it is going to be a cool room!!

All the talk about the cute crib reminded me of Friends when Joey finds that adorable crib on the street for Rachel. "What is that in there?!" "It has a tail!!!" Hopefully your furniture is less full of rodents!

The color is beautiful in the pics, Jen. I bet that green softens a lot in the natural light. It will be wonderful with the new little curtains and crib things you are creating!! It is so fun to get ready for a new baby, especially the first one . . . He will be so precious. They always are!
