Baby Shower

Here are a few pictures from my baby shower (aka pedicure party and dinner) with my friends from residency. We had a great time, and it was a perfect way to do a shower. No fuss, no cooking, no clean up. Thanks Beth, Tara, Erica and Suzy!!

(The nursery painting is 95% done; hopefully I'll be posting pictures soon.)

Tabula Rosa

Here it is--the empty nursery ready for some color. We'll see if I'm brave enough to go BOLD. I have a vision of a fabulous Kate Spade inspired nursery, but I don't have quite enough designer in me to know if it will turn out. Either way, hopefully it will be ready before September comes.

Two Hearts

Just in case anyone shares my slightly neurotic nature, you can rest assured that the baby's heart is a-okay. I had my unnecessary (but kinda cool) fetal echo today and not only are there 4 chambers, but the girl's also got normal valves, vessels and flow . My heart, on the other hand, apparently needs a little more juice. My screening labs came back today and showed anemia (low blood count). Maybe that's why I can't climb a flight of stairs without becoming winded. Hopefully a little extra iron will get me up and running before the baby gets here.

Growing Times

After Jess threatened to take a picture of my belly and post it on her blog (although she can't really talk--www.brettandjess.blogspot.com has not been overflowing with posts recently) I decided to post another pregnancy shot. I think the picture makes my stomach look more pointed than it actually is, but who knows. This is me at 27 3/7 weeks. The other pictures are of my one decorative nursery piece: a bird mobile that I think is great. Other than the mobile, the room is pretty plain. We are going to paint next week, so hopefully it will look more like a nursery and less like a DownEast warehouse.
