Finished Painting

This morning, Norah's room looked like this: Jerry spent the morning touching up the baseboards and trim:
And by this afternoon, it looked like this:
That one remaining spot of blue tape indicates a part of the baseboard that required a re-touching up, and it wasn't dry yet when I took the picture.

Here, below, is a shot of another wall with the bookcase we decided to keep. It won't match the furniture we're ordering, but it's in good condition so I was reuctant to get rid of it only to replace it with a bookcase that matched. I mean, it's great to have matching stuff, but let's face it: We don't have all matching furniture in our bedroom, so I'm not sure the baby needs it. And I'm sure that bookcase will get well-stocked in no time.

And, one last angle:
All in all, we're pleased with how it turned out, and we're excited to order the furniture now and start stocking this room full of baby stuff! But, man alive, it's been a busy weekend working on this project.

In other weekend stuff, we had a nice dinner last night with MCM Mama and her family, and it was great to meet her in person. We did get some pictures together, but I forgot my camera, so I will have to wait until she returns to DC to email me the pictures she took. She and her husband were also kind enough to give Norah a Washington, DC onesie and we even inherited an umbrella stroller from them!

Then, we had Easter dinner with some friends this afternoon, and even though I'm stuffed full of ham, I am feeling compelled to get my running shoes on and get out for a run because I haven't run in days!

Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend! Toodles.

The room looks great. I would say the only thing it is missing is a picture of Jamoosh, but we don't want to scar the little one so early in life do we...
