This is our master bedroom the first morning after closing on our first house. We threw our air mattress, some sheets, a blanket, and pillows in our rig before going in to sign all the paperwork. And on the way from Portland to Salem, I was on the phone with the garbage, electricity, natural gas, and water companies to get everything switched into our names.
And now, after nearly two years, we finally get to paint the room and really make it ours!
We decided to do a gender reveal party for our little Peanut. The card that the ultrasound tech marked went straight into a seal envelope and to my cousin's girlfriend who makes fantastic cakes! And I made some cute chalkboard signs to celebrate the occasion.
This is the sign you saw on our front door when you arrived for our gender reveal party. I made this sign from scratch with a wood rounder I got from my local craft store, chalkboard spray paint (and tape to preserve the edges), and an assortment of colored chalk markers.
20 weeks for any pregnant woman is a big deal. This is the time your baby gets their anatomy scan, making sure that the little one is developing and is on track for their age. With our 20 week scan, we found out a couple things, some of which really changed things for us. But first, some cute images the ultrasound tech saved for us.
