With a a little over 10 weeks until the Bean's potential arrival, my goal was to get "most" of the Bean's room ready before I start back on campus in August and I did it! Well, actually, Adam did all the heavy lifting, crib assembly and painting the dresser. I got to do the fun stuff like pick out drawer pulls and hang pictures on the wall. It was so fun to get to be creative and have an outlet and space to nest in! I love spending time in here now!

|I re-used the watercolor I had done for our wedding invitation- For now it says "Adam and Amy and the Bean" until we decide on a name.|
Now, I am all for cuteness and feeding that "nesting" urge however suits you, but I'm realizing the "baby" industry is a lot like the wedding industry. Somehow they have a way of making you feel like you N-E-E-D to do things like everyone else. I need pep talks from Adam to help keep things in perspective. This baby is a gift and what matters is that we love it and care for it as best we can. A cozy room that I actually like for it to sleep in, be changed in, and nurse in is just icing on the cake!
