Guess where we spent Friday night? Lowe's and Home Depot! Jory spent over an hour pouring over the paint colors to pick the perfect shade for Baby Allen's room. It was sweet. This was his project and I did a good job of staying out of it and just observing the decision-making process. At the end, he narrowed it down to three colors and asked me to eliminate one. I did and that's the one he chose(?). Anyway, it's a precious color and he always does a good job with paint choices so I am anxious to see the end result. I mostly enjoyed just watching him being so intent on making this room perfect.
He is definitely getting more excited about Little One's arrival as we get closer. And everyone asks if the nursery is done. We kind of look at each other like 'is it supposed to be? We've got three months' and then we go home and say, 'we've only got three months! We need to do something'. I think it's all going to come together beautifully, though. The furniture and bedding should be in there by January and that still gives us time to buy decorations, right?
Right now, I'm trying to decide what to bring Little One home from the hospital in. Something fancy? Something comfortable? A dress or outfit that can be used for first pictures and become an heirloom? A sleeper that could actually be used - a lot? Jory has no opinion on this and I go back and forth pretty regularly. There's a baby's clothing store in town that I may check out today.
