The Bump.com says baby Blake is the size of a sweet potato right now...but I seriously have to disagree. This baby HAS to be bigger than a sweet potato...
I mean...check out this belly? That looks like more than a sweet potato to me. But then again, maybe I have just been eating too many sweet potatoes and salami sandwiches. HA!
And just so you can judge for yourself...here is a close-up :-)
Even though I kid that my belly is getting bigger by the day, I have to admit...I LOVE IT! Getting a belly and feeling the baby move is by far the best part of pregnancy. I am finally starting to feel Blake move and it is such an amazing feeling...even the second time around. I honestly think the reason he started moving more this week is to let me know that he is LOVING his nursery so far!
As promised, I am including a few pictures of the paint job my Dad and I did this past week. I chose two shades of blue from the bedding and separated the colors by a piece of wood screening (painted white). I was a little nervous about the colors when I first picked them, but now that they are up on the wall, I love them! Very boyish :-)
And because I am a sucker for little embellishments and details, I decided to add just a few wooden airplanes here and there along the border. The nursery is transportation themed and I have lots of decor related to trucks, trains and automobiles, so I wanted to make sure I got the planes in there too. I painted them to match the bedding and I think they turned out cute.
I know you were probably hoping for more pics, but I just can't reveal the rest until the nursery is complete :-) You know me...always being dramatic...but I love to wait until everything is in its place so that you can see the whole picture. Don't worry...I am on a mission to complete it before the start of the school year so it won't be long my friends :-)
