The nursery is almost finished!

All the furniture has arrived and been moved into the room (thanks to Brian and Jeff). My mom did some stenciling by the crib, she did a little flutter of white butterflies. They look so cute, I want to add some more in a few places around the room!
Poor Brian has spent hours hanging wall letters, shelves, and pictures, installing the light kit into the ceiling fan, putting up curtains and blackout shades, moving furniture around, and his favorite activity (painting). He has done such a great job! Its very very very girlie with lots of little details. We still have a few things to do, like find a hamper, put in a changing pad, and add some more butterflies, but its finally coming together. Baby Tori, I hope you love pink! :-P
These shelves will eventually hold all her books and toys, but for now we just have some little accessories up there.

This wall still needs something, I just haven't figured out what to do with it yet...
I can't believe we only have around 7 weeks left to wait! Victoria should be around 4 pounds at this point, and she should be about the size of a pineapple! We can really tell how much she's grown when she tries to lay sideways. You can see her pushing out on both sides of my belly! She is almost always head down with her feet up between my ribs. She does very little kicking now as she's starting to get pretty cramped, but you can see her little feet pushing out or her squirming around through most of the day. She is very active during the day and is very calm or sleeping at night. She really has been a great baby so far! I've really only had a few nights that she has kept me awake and that's usually when I'm tossing so she can't get comfortable either. We can't wait to see what she's like after she's born! Not too much longer to wait!

I heart spring!

Not really anything to do with the baby.... but yay it's finally spring!!!!! (and not raining every day anymore). I would love to do a ton more gardening this year now that I actually have a place to plant after adding our flower garden last year but getting down in the dirt is getting more and more difficult. Maybe next year! For now I'll enjoy my beautiful planters :-)
