Out Like a Lamb...

You know the saying--"March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb." Well, they got it half correct this year. The beginning of March was another major snow storm, and now, a month later, instead of snowing it's raining non-stop. Not quite gentle and lamb-like, but nevertheless to say that April is tomorrow feels really good. We finally have some little daffodils and tulips poking their heads out of the cold, cold ground, but some icebergs remain in our yard, some part not quite sunny enough, and the air not quite warm enough, to melt. But ah, spring! I wish I could say I felt it right around the corner, but not with this weather.

Yesterday was awesome, however. We attended the Holyoke St. Patrick's Day Parade. Fun was had by all. The baby loved it, as evidences by the many flips and kicks he/she was doing inside the belly. And, speaking of which..I've FINALLY felt the baby on the outside. Finally!!! It's wondrous. My next milestone is to actually see the baby kick from the outside. Haven't seen that yet, though S. says it's happening once in a while.

We also purchased our crib and nursery chair (with a white cushion) from Ike@ this weekend. Hopefully it will be of the "wicked easy and joyful" Ike@ assemblies and not the "holy shit why did I buy this cheap piece of crap" assemblies. We've had experiences with both. We also sort of settled on some decor--it is not a theme, people. You know what others do when they sense you have a theme--they go insane with the theme and then it becomes kitschy and lame. So, we have decor and that's all we're sticking to! We purchased the "Farm Wall Graphics" and some black and white 5x7 cards to frame. We were originally painting the walls orange but may now switch to this nice shade of green from the picture, because when have you seen sheep grazing in an orange meadow?!

Anyway, things are getting exciting around here, for sure!

Lovely decor. We attempted no "theme" too. So far, it's worked!!

Love the decor. We are trying to do just the decor as well... the rainforest one. But we want it simple and cute.

You are about 30 days ahead of us according to your ticker!

Oh MY GOD! Those wall graphics are so damn cute!!!!! Cakie and soon-to-be little brother's room has always had a little jungle action going on. I am SO tempted to get that jungle scene. Then I think about actually putting up all those decals, and I'm not so sure. So cute. Thanks for sharing. I might just do it.

belated reply about your chair: we have one of those, and love it! the only precaution i'd recommend is don't put all your weight toward the front of the chair, as it tends to tip over. learned that the hard way. twice.
