not to be out done
My totally unscientific prediction? He'll either come tomorrow or will wait until August. We'll see soon enough. Twelve days till the due date.
If you remember from last time, I'm a pretty crazy nester even when not pregnant. But I think because we moved to the new house and I felt guilty for already giving Buddy Bear the shaft, I really wanted to finish his nursery before he came. While there are two things left (finishing painting a little corner shelf and finding a side table for the chair), I'm just going to call it done. That chair, by the way? Is where I've been sleeping for weeks. Bought me several more hours of sleep. So, without further ado, nursery #2.
To continue with the pattern from nursery #1, I kept a list of all the places Buddy Bear traveled with me while pregnant and framed those places on the right. On the left are song lyrics that spoke to me this time around. They're from Eddie Vedder's "Skipping" and say: "All of my life from beginning to end what I'll remember is holding your hand. And all that I'll cherish is the time that we've spent, me and you skipping throughout the land." In the middle is one of my favorite parts of the room. I ordered those letters online and stained them. Love the font. And that frame? I've had for YEARS--just waiting to do something with it. Like spray paint it white and put it in my sons nursery, it turns out.
So there you have it. A (for all intents and purposes) completed nursery. It really makes me feel good to have it (mostly) done even though he won't really live in there for a few months at least.
