It's a girl!



I'm officially halfway through my pregnancy with Baby #2, and we just found out it's a girl! I think Eva will love having a sister; she loves talking about the baby and how she is going to help Mommy. Meanwhile, we are getting her "big girl room" ready so baby can move into the nursery. Here are pictures of Eva's new butterfly bedding and carpet.




We had the walls replastered and are waiting for that to dry completely before we can paint. I am thinking of a robin's egg blue, like this:



I can't wait until it's all painted so we can buy a bed and get everything set up. I am thinking we'll probably go with this daybed from IKEA, which I think is perfect for a little girl's room. It can also pull out to a double for when we have guests.

What do you think?

Last month we had a visit from my cousin Ben's 14 year old son Ike. I hadn't seen him since he was a little boy, but he was a great guest, and we really enjoyed his visit. As a bonus, it also gave me the chance to take lots of pictures of Eva!
