We have been working on the nursery for several weeks now...when you are on bed rest, you find that you can only do one thing per day. This makes weekend projects drag into month-long projects (much to a husband's delight). I will say, taking our time on it has only fueled my creative juices. I find myself obsessing over the smallest details (shocking, I know) and working, then re-working, design plans.
Ironically enough, directly after our wedding, I commented to my grandma that I couldn't believe the gestation period for humans was only nine months...having just spent 21 months planning a wedding, I was lamenting over the fact that I would have *only* nine short months to plan for a baby. Ha! The time can't go by fast enough. Even still, it's been fun to play around with ideas and really take our time on it.
Also with the tree came an entire flock of little decal birds that were much easier to install. The birds were like an addiction to me...I found myself being drawn back into the nursery to attach one bird...and then another bird...before I knew it, there were birds everywhere.
