evie's room part 2

Here is a sneak peak at the latest project in Evie's room. I hung lanterns above her crib in fun colors instead of a mobile. I also got her window's dressed with simple roller shades I embellished with ribbons and hung white sheers. 

Here is the view from her crib. I think it will be fun for her to look at.
Jonathan moved this pink vintage light fixture that came with the house- but was in the guest room- into Evie's room. It is perfect for her.
And since it's been a while since the dogs have said hello on here. . . Here is Audrey in the car sinking into a huge dog bed in the back seat.

Tonight I had my first strange late-ish night craving. At about 9pm I was craving Jello. I haven't had it in years but it sounded sooo good. So I made some and followed the quick set directions so it would be ready in a half hour. For good measure I waited until about 10:30 to pull it out and sat on the sofa next to Jonathan to eat my Jello. And then Jonathan's first "sympathy craving" set in. He got all excited... yelled JELLO... ran to the fridge to get whipped cream and proceeded to eat about 2/3 of the Jello. That's right folks-we ate it all, what is probably like 8 servings or something. Let me tell ya. . . if you haven't had Jello in a while- do it. There's a reason you liked it as a kid. It's good stuff.

new sono pics

This pic is by far the best we have seen of Evie's face during her sonograms. She usually has her hands up at her face, and did again today. . . but moved them so we got to take a peek. There is video too of her blinking that I will post once I figure out how to do that.
In this picture you can see her little bit of hair where the arrow is pointing. 
Evie was 5 lbs 8 oz's today. . . already a big girl considering she has 8 more weeks to put the pounds on -yikes! She is healthy and looks great.

Evie's room- post 1

For about the past month we have been working on Genevieve's room. It is very much in progress. . . but some of the fun projects are complete so I thought I would share a bit at a time. My mom came a little over a month ago and painted the room a light aqua color (thanks mom!). I then painted a few animals on the walls to kick up the fun. I say I painted. . . but really I used some sketches put onto an overhead projector and more traced these animals. 
The turtle is over by her crib. I think Mr. Turtle is a cutie.
Penguin over looks her dresser/changing table. 
Giraffe greets you when you come into her room. The wall color is all weird in this picture. I took quite a few and couldn't get the giraffe to show up in the pic without blowing the wall color out weird. . so use some imagination. Mr. Giraffe is my favorite. Evie has a rocking giraffe (like a rocking horse) and a few giraffe toys already. . . I hope she likes them because it's kind of becoming a trend. 

I will post more pics as more is done. There are other complete projects. . . but they are hidden behind ladders and cribs in the middle of the room and other project-in-project messes.
