Baby's Room

We've started to get the baby room decorated. We had an ultrasound a week ago, everything went well. The baby's now 8 oz (50th percetile) and looks way bigger than the first one. We could see the heart beating, arms and legs moving! We didn't get a good picture of the face, so we will probably get another ultrasound in the next couple weeks.

Next week Karina will be half way done, which is crazy! Due date is still April 21st.

Here's a picture of the baby crib my parents bought us. This is where the baby will get a full 12 hours of uninterupted sleep every night.

Here's the matching changing table/dresser. We're hoping the baby comes out potty trained so that we will only use this as a dresser.

This is the first room with curtains, that's a big step for us. Two down, 28 more to go.


Finally got the spindles and banister stained and put back together tonight.

Here's the starting point a year and half ago.

Here's some before and after pictures of the kitchen floor. The linoleom removal in this room was the worst of the house, took me about 6 nights after work. This room doesn't have finished hardwood floors, just rough cut fir sub-floor.

We lived with a drop cloth for two weeks.

We used a natural finish. The back breakfast nook addition has plywood subfloor, eventually I will cover that with a sheet of vinyl.

Here's our new wood buring fireplace insert. This actually heats up the room, as I'm typing this I'm considering taking off my sweatshirt which would be a first! We can only burn small fires to break it in, after that I will be able to fill it and get the house to 75 degrees!
