We have found our little boy bedding. We have decided on the Curious George theme from Pottery Barn Kids. It is so cute! Now that we have our girl and our boy themes chosen, we feel that we have our plan in place. Just in case we get a call with not much notice, we can spring into action and have our nursery ready very quickly. I don't know which would be better, to be chosen early in the pregnancy or to just get a call that our baby is here and will be home with us in a matter of a couple of weeks. Either way, we are ready!!!! Pictures of both themes are below.

We have made it through our first month of waiting. Now that I look back, it went by super fast. We have been advised to just take this journey a month at a time, and so far so good. We are both just so anxious to become parents, but we know that we need to enjoy our alone time, too. Someday soon alone time moments will be few and far between ~ but it will be so wonderful to have our sweet little one right in-between us!

Well, we have survived our first 3 weeks of waiting. We actually had a date night this past Friday, and after dinner we went to a local baby store just to look around. We were so excited to find the perfect bedding for a little girl's room. It is called "Cupcake". It has lots of pink, blue, and green with cupcakes, stripes, and some geometric designs. Since Bobby is a wonderful baker, we just fell in love with this theme. Now, we have to keep our eyes open for something for a little boy's room ~ although I have a feeling that it will turn into a UK themed room no matter what bedding I find! It truly does help to pass the time to be making plans. We also found a beautiful white baby bed that we both agree on. Although we aren't buying big items until we are all legal, it sure is fun to hope and plan for our future little darling!

Today we started painting the nursery. We are wavering on the wall color, so we started with the woodwork. We were also able to get one coat of white on a bookcase. You just can't beat fresh, white paint. The bookcase, from a friend, looks new and beautiful. Hopefully we will decide on our wall color soon. We thought we were all set for pale yellow, but now we are both thinking more of a robin's egg blue. It is so fun to be able to plan for our little one, even though we have no idea when he or she will join our family. We are 10 days into our wait; just trying to take it a day, a week, and a month at a time.
