Project Nursery

I'll start with a few more stages of belly pictures. Just when I think there's no way I could get much bigger, the twins prove me wrong! Here's 21 weeks.


And 22 weeks...

And the latest, 23 weeks!

Those very cute new walls behind me in the last 2 pictures are in the nursery, formerly known as J's office. This is the before state...

We thought about repainting it when we moved in since the pale yellow walls definitely still looked like a nursery, which is what the previous owners used it for, but we never got around to that. I decided on chocolate brown walls when we found out we were having a boy & a girl so that I can still use pink & blue bedding. J & I started the project several weeks ago. Please ignore my no make-up, bad hair look.


J decided to tackle the project of putting up wainscoting & chair railing himself, & our good friend Mark Fowler was very, very kind to offer his help (& his dad's fancy tools). J & I went to buy the lumber that Thursday night so everything would be ready to go on Saturday. I know it's cheesy that I took a picture of the lumber, but I wanted to document the whole project.

Hattie & I left for Canton at 7:30 in the morning, & the guys worked all day & did amazing work.


The next step is getting the carpet replaced in most of the house, & then we'll be able to assemble the cribs & changing table, which we picked up tonight. Lots to do!

It looks so good...and you are super cute (both with and without makeup). I guess by the time I see you next you will have two, small bundles in your arms :) Miss you!

Alli, it looks great! I never thought of chocolate brown. I love the wainscoting...you need to send over your J to help my J learn how! And I really don't know where you plan on keeping those twins for 3 more months but you look lovely and graceful doing it!
