20 weeks 1 day

Whoaaaaaa we're halfway there!  Whoaa-ooo! We're livin on a prayer! That song always pops in my head when I hear "halfway there."  Penelope is the size of a banana this week and I think I felt her kick from the outside this morning.  Hoping she starts getting a lot more active soon.

Big news this week is the nursery. My parents are here visiting too and they are sleeping in the guest room/nursery on an air mattress.  My mom hates to paint but she painted the whole nursery.  My dad helped too.  It was really a pain because we still had furniture in there and didn't have a ladder so she had to scoot around on a chair.  Then we ran out of paint because the primer we had was gray and one coat of yellow wouldn't cover it. So I'm really thankful they were willing to paint my nursery because Josh is working almost 12 hour shifts and I'm not supposed to be painting.

Their poor living conditions while painting was going on
My mom, dad and I went to Hobby Lobby to look at fabric.  I got fabric for a bumper, crib skirt and sheets. But just one sheet.  I know I will probably buy or get more sheets but I wanted one set to look perfect. Tomorrow we will start sewing it all.  We also have to paint the crib and the baby gate.

The nursery is all painted and here is a sneak peak.  I will have one post dedicated to just the nursery when it is all finished.
