For Her

Redoing that dresser was a big job!  It was pretty yucky on the inside, so I ended up painting the inside as well as the outside, and then I lined the drawers as well.  I should have taken photos while it was still sitting in the yard, because now that it’s tucked into a dark corner it’s hard to photograph.  The drawers are full of baby things now, one more thing checked off my list.  I also repainted my desk, in the same Basil green milk paint by General Finishes.  My strategy before having babies is to have my bedroom looking nice (it used to be to have the entire house looking good, but that isn’t quite as feasible anymore).  I’ll be spending a lot of time in my bedroom in the early weeks, so it’s nice to have it looking good.  I bought a new quilt for our bed (long overdue) and I am really happy with the gray-green paint on my desk and the new dresser.

I finished knitting the Sproutlette dress and it is really sweet.  My little girls love it.  Larkspur and Beatrix are so, so excited to have a baby sister.  They enjoy looking at her little clothes more than I do, and they are counting down the days until they get to meet her.  I can’t believe how fast these days are passing!
