Nursery theme picked!

It's hard to tell from the picture, but there's a very simple and delicate design of dandelions and flowers, and (despite the name Butterfly Meadow) only a couple of butterflies. Thanks Mom and Dad!

Also, big nursery news: my neighbor's mom is a really good artist. She has painted a magnificent mural for her daughter's nursery (she's due in June and my travel date might also be in June). As a generous gift she has also offered to paint a mural in my nursery! She came over this morning to take a look and had several awesome and creative ideas! I'm very excited to have hand painted art work on Baby Girl's walls.

Here is the detail closer up. It doesn't do it justice though. It's really feminine and sweet. I think if you click on it you can see it in larger detail.

ALSO! Mom brought a video of Baby Girl and boy is she a rock star! I can't wait to be able to post some footage and some pictures so everyone else can agree with me :-) She just has the prettiest face and is so alert and curious and smiley. She can make raspberries with her lips and crack herself up. She's starting to crawl, and can turn herself over on a bed with much effort and attempts. Mom also brought about 60 more pictures! I probably have the most footage of a referral pre-adoption that any PAP has had the luck to have! It was a much better day today!

Contest points for the day: (15 points.. this could put someone in the lead) Who sang the lyrics "Press your space face close to mine, love" ?

It's called Butterfly Meadow and it's available at Babies R Us. I'd get it soon though becasue they didn't have it out as a display so it's not the newest spring line anymore.

I was going to guess Bowie, too.
Do I still get points if I'm third to say so ?

Sorry Dani and Michelle, I think it has to be first person to comment otherwise it could keep going forever!

That's a cute room Mitchell.

I have not done any thing with my daughter's room. All she has in there is a bed. When I recuperate from my adoption expenses, she's going to get her Cinderella room.

Hopefully, it will not be when she's on her way to college...LOl!

Sorry, I don't know answer to your quiz.

I get that you have to be first to get points, but man.....I can't be here waiting with breath held for you to post a question, dangit!
