Baby Birds Border

What have we been up to lately? Well, I've been hand-painting the border in the nursery. I looked for "easy" ways to decorate it and nothing was working out, so I have resorted to making my own stencil of baby birds from the crib quilt (which has a variety of animals on it), enlarging it, and drawing them lightly on the wall, and painting them in the same color scheme as on the quilt. It sounds like a lot of work but it hasn't been that bad. I'm almost done, and I'm pretty happy with how it is turning out. We're really starting to wonder whether it will be a little boy or a little girl who will be enjoying the new carpeting... which is being installed next Wednesday morning! At that point, I will be able to post a photo. ;)

A couple days after that our new roof will be going on, as well as new fascia wrap (in white). It may look strange with our existing siding, or it may look really great. Either way the siding will be redone next year (spring or summer), because it is rotting wood and we want vinyl, in a lighter color. I just can't believe we're going to have a new roof on the house within the next couple weeks!

As for me - 33+ weeks and for the most part I feel really good. I could complain about a couple things, but I'll let Ron listen to that stuff, and not blog about it. It's usually just a way for me to vent, and of course I realize that it is all worth it in the end! This baby is coming within the next month or month-and-a-half so I'm glad we have at least a few more weeks to get some stuff done.

Wow, how exciting!!! Baby's room coming together, new roof, new carpet, less than two months until the little one arrives! I hope you take lots of pictures (wait, who am I kidding :) ) of your house before and after all of your remodeling. I'm sure it looks 100x different! Can't wait to see the baby's room!
