Nursery Prep

Mom and Dad came to visit this weekend and help with the nursery.  Patrick and I went to Home Depot and then he worked on painting last week so we were ready to go when they arrived.  The progress is truly impressive and I am thrilled with the results!
Here is Patrick cutting our bead board edging at Home Depot.  Did you know that they have DIY stations with cutting boards and saws - pretty cool!

Creating a home for Baby E!

 Patrick and Dad worked really hard all weekend to get the bead board, floor boards, chair rail and crown moulding up in the baby's room. We were very impressed at how easy they made it all look!

 Mom and I worked on the letters - finishing touches and laquer to make them shiny! I love how they just pop off of the green wall!

This is where we left off this weekend - new blinds are in and walls basically done. Just a second coat of paint in a few places and we are ready for furniture!

Jenn and Baby E meet a Green Bay Packer!

 I met Jarrett Bush from the Packers at the Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation Event last week. While he was speaking, I felt the baby kick for the first time - I think we have a Packer fan in the making!
I also got an autograph for Patrick - check out that Super Bowl Ring!
