Next, his room is coming along - Kevin finished the green and then painted the white border through the center of the room. He is quite proud of his straight lines- as I type this he is trying to scroll down to see the pictures! The original plan was for me to free hand brown lines at the top & bottom of the border so it didn't look too perfect. I don't know if he's going to let me do that now. :) Next I have to figure out how to paint the dots and then get started on those - probably a weekend project.
Straight lines -
I also went furniture shopping last night with Grandma K and didn't find anything I liked - I was thinking I wanted white furniture, but now that I see that white border, I'm thinking furniture with a "coffee" or "espresso" finish (those names make me laugh). I was very tempted to buy something for the babe, but I didn't. I saw baby Converse, but how do I know what size to buy? I need some help on that one. Grandma K did buy this little onesie for him - it has lizards on it - my dad always calls me Lizzie and sometimes Lizard. (Our family is big into nicknames - poor Micah!)
Kevin also received this little outfit and bear from Heather & Leslie at work last Friday. That green will look so cute on him! And, that was very sweet of them- thanks Heather & Leslie!
This is a picture I had to share of a little bunny rattle that was passed along to us from our friends down the street. It used to be very cute... until one of the dogs got a hold of it. Now it has no eyes and its nose is about to fall off. We have a lot of work to do with the dogs on this...
Finally, we are thinking of our friends Jenni & Jim as they await their referral. Their dossier was the second to arrive in Ethiopia for CHI, so we are hoping they get some good news very soon! Our thoughts & prayers are with you guys!
