Nursery Mural!

Last weekend after a lovely brunch at Melinda and JJ's (thanks for having us over, guys!) Jen and I headed back to work on the baby mural. At first I was afraid that the paint colors we picked out were too subtle, but they turned out to be just right. We got a late start but the painting went so quickly, and was really fun! Thank you Jen!
Here is a picture of the wall before:

Anthony took these pictures of me and Jen painting in cute aprons and damp socks. (It was a blustery day!)

And ta-daaaa!!! Below is the after picture! Our lovely birch forest is almost complete! The only thing left is to add some woodland creatures. We're going to paint in a few birds, squirrels, and maybe Jen will hide a little bunny in there to represent lady Josephine! I'll post pics once that's done (and soon we'll have a little crib to put in the forest, yay!)

25 weeks!

Here are the most recent baby pics! These were taken about two weeks ago, and we were so excited to see her little profile for the first time.

This is a 3-D version, you can see her little hand up over her face and her legs are bent up so her knee is right by her head, too. She's rocking the fetal position, though the ultrasound lady (who was very nice this time) assured me that she has plenty of room to stretch out in there. She said baby Leona can kick things around and make more room for herself at my expense. :) Good for her! She's been very gentle so far though, it feels like a little jellyfish swimming around in my belly.
