Here is the deer I told you about in Iris' room. She all done and ready to make a little girl smile. I found an image I liked and drew it on the wall with pencil. It only took about five minutes. I thought it would take much longer. I contemplated painting her white or brown, and Dan said I should use the darker green from the geometric wall. He's so smart!

Here's a glimpse of Iris' room. I have to say, I absolutely LOVE how it all came together. I wanted to go with a "shabby chic" feel, but that didn't compliment the rest of our house very well, so I think we wound up with a more modern/vintage feel. (If that makes any sense). I ordered some vintage illustration decals and made the pink sock hat box on the book shelf. It was just plain cardboard, so I painted it pink, antiqued it, then added the decals. The cubbies over the dresser and the mobile are from Pottery Barn Kids (on clearance) and the dresser is from Wal-mart. Dan sanded and repainted the little end table and the mirror above it. They are from Salvation Army and the mirror was an ugly gold color before. I still have to paint a deer on the wall behind the door. It's drawn and ready for color, so I'll post it after it is painted. We have an Eames rocker that we are waiting to come in. It will go in front of the curtains and we went with deer accents. Lilly's our little lam (her initials), and Iris will be our dear baby.

Lilly got her first haircut last week. I had to sit in the chair with her because she was screaming, "I don't want a haircut either" at the poor lady. After awhile, Lilly began to enjoy herself. She said, "She's helping me, and She's nice" about the lady cutting her hair. We had no idea what to expect, but at the end Lilly got little cornrows and flowers in her hair. We were shocked that she sat through it. She kept looking in the mirror and saying, "I'm a flower gurl!" It was so cute. I told her she could have a lollipop when it was all over and she got a balloon & a certificate from the shop. She wound up having fun and she only took out one of the flowers by the time we got home.

Our second grade class had a little shower for Heather and me last Friday. It was so much fun! The kids really got into it. They got to measure our bellies with ribbon and play some other games. We received lots of new clothes that will look adorable on our little babies. Heather is scheduled to have Reese this Wednesday, and I hopefully have 5 more weeks to go!

Hey all, this is Dan and it's my first blog entry ever but I could not be more excited. Lilly wanted to share her favorite Sandra Boynton book with you all and I was lucky enough to catch the moment. It goes, "Oohh snuggle puppy of mine, everything about you is incredibly fine, I love what you are, I love what you do, Oohh Oohh, I love you!" From Lilly, with love - Good Night!
