Mellow Yellow

Nursery planning for baby girl Brand is underway. When I was looking at bedding I was pretty open, but I knew one thing... I didn't want pink. I am not sure exactly why, but it just didn't appeal to me. So after some searching I finally found a set I fell in love with!
I just love the yellow and brown, and pops of blue and red. The furniture we ordered is dark brown and we decided to paint the walls yellow. Who knew yellow would be such a tricky color! After painting 5 different color swatches on the wall and completely frustrating the paint guy at Home Depot, I have finally found one I am happy with. Now we just have to move out the old guest room furniture and find some place to store it! It is all becoming so real! She will be here before we know it!

It's a girl!

I guess when a doctor tells you not to paint the room just yet, you should listen to him! That is what our doctor told us at our 16 week appointment. "I am almost positive it is a boy, but don't go painting the room!"

Well, 4 weeks later at our 20 week appointment with the sonogram tech, we got a little surprise.

Our baby is 100%, no doubt, a baby girl!!! We were totally shocked, thrilled, but shocked!

She is perfectly healthy and she even showed us how she likes to suck her thumb!
