The part of the book I could relate to the most was when she mentioned having a obsession with online shopping. Obviously, she and I have different budgets, but I have been enamored with online shopping. Lately, I've spent hours looking at curtains, maternity clothes, baby gear, and everything else. It's so much fun; I'm just glad I haven't taken it to Jenny's level where I have the boxes delivered to friends' houses because my husband is getting fed up with the craziness!
Kyle and I did in fact make one purchase today: the crib!
The wall color of this nursery is nearly identical to ours (in the picture anyway). I love the color of the curtains- finding similar ones seems very do-able. The rug? AHMAZING. Light fixture? PERFECT. Don't expect to see those in little McBaby's room though. You can expect some stenciling. Ideally, the stenciling would look exactly like this- boy or girl, but I have another animal in mind that light be a little more realistic!
To answer your question, no, I did not go out and buy a lottery ticket after drooling over these amazing nurseries. It was just a lot of fun getting ideas for what we can do with our space.
In belly news, this week I think I've felt kicks or movements. As all of my baby books have mentioned, it could just be gas, but I'm pretty sure it's little kicks. Yesterday was the best with four in a row! I love feeling them and often sit quietly trying to telepathically tell the baby to move. This hasn't worked. The child already doesn't listen.
We go to the doctor on Wednesday! Can't wait to hear the heartbeat again!
