Nursery #2

So after I finished the nursery I took pictures right away, posted them on the blog and went straight to bed. I was feeling pretty good about my accomplishment. Then the next morning I went in to look at it again and I hated it! The paint had dried much darker and it reminded me of a circus tent. So what's the logical thing to do? Paint it all over again of course. Yep that's right, the very next morning I repainted the whole thing in one day. (I blame my craziness on being pregnant) Now it's all blue with one tan wall and it looks much better. I wanted to hurry and fix it before Ben came back home. Now he's home and loves it. He was so excited that he put together the bassinet so there would be something in there for right now.


A quick update on Ben:
He just got back from his second trip to the middle east. He's been to both Iraq and Afghanistan now. He says it's so surreal being down there. When they land they have to get in their bulletproof vest and someone has a gun on them at all times. They get in and get out as fast as possible. His mission is always something different and he's just trying to get the hang of everything right now. He's home for now but probably only for a week or so. They don't tell us when he's going to leave again until 2 or 3 days before. So we'll party until he has to leave again and then I'll get back to work.


As for me, I'm now 29 weeks pregnant and feeling larger than life. Just call me Ginormica. Ü I feel like my stomach has stretched to its max and I really don't want to know how much more it can really stretch in the next 11 weeks. But I know it'll be worth it in the end.

The nursery is looking so great. I'm so happy Ben is back and he's safe. We love you guys and pray for yall all the time especially when Ben's away. p.s. Adorable little prego belly. It still doesn't look that big. I think there's plenty of room left for it to grow bigger ;) Can't wait to meet baby Oliver!
