First, here I am at 19 weeks. I apologize for my weird face. We took this picture about 18 times because shadows, dogs, or bad facial expressions kept getting in the way. Look, I even wore a skirt this time!

We had a busy weekend. Thankfully Seth had lots of energy!! We went and picked up a swivel chair and ottoman from a lady in the Woodlands who gave us a STEAL of a deal. In fact, as soon as we got in the truck I told Seth to floor it because I was afraid she was going to change her mind! It’s khaki and in fabulous condition. I’m hoping I don’t even have to recover it for the baby room. It was so cute because she had 3 little boys that were all yelling, “Bye chair!!” as we left.

Seth also added a ceiling fan and chair railing in the baby’s room. I promised him it would be a quick job. (Luckily it was) It looks so cute and I can’t wait to paint the rest of the room! He painted the railing yesterday afternoon and the house stinks. Even with windows open and the fan on. In fact, I think the smell made me kind of giggly yesterday.


But note to self…if you paint something with oil-based paint and shortly after you smell things that indicate the house is about to blow up…don’t worry, it’s just the paint. I had been warned about this but completely forgot. So when I was doing laundry I thought we definitely had a gas leak because of the stench coming from the dryer. Nope, just the paint. Something about the heat burning/mixing with the oil in the paint? I don’t remember. Anyway, it wasn’t good.

Here are the pictures of the room:

I’ve (almost) picked out the colors for the room. As I predicted, it was too hard of a decision for one weekend :)

We had a little more excitement but I’ll have to save that for my next post…

  1. ok all this “excitement” has got me wondering….
    You didn’t refer to the room as “baby J’s”, and you bought a cacky chair…also no color commitment. Could our excitement be….
