Baby Wyatt's progress.

This is the start of the border in Baby Wyatt's nursery.  Trying to figure out a way to incorporate some wildlife in has been rolling around in my mind for quite some time.  This is the first coat of the silhouettes that I am going to place around room.    There is a lot more work to be done on this. 

But we have a good start anyway.

The caption on picture #1 of Mom-to-be Dianna is, "Dad, don't take my picture with this shirt on, I look like a tank!"  With only two months left to go, she is scrounging for oversized t-shirts.
And just to justify all those family members, myself included, that have harassed poor Dianna about the Pictionary games and her lack of artistic skills, she did not just pose for these pics, she actually worked a lot of the evening painting...yes PAINTING! 

Dianna held a paintbrush and I think she actually liked it!!

And of course, me painting away.

And Aunt Jenn, who did work, but at this point looks as though she was supervising Dianna's artistic endeavors.

That's a huge undertaking! All that standing and detail work. Can't wait to see it finished.

What a big job. It's going to look so cute. Tell your daughter that I have no pictures of myself, when I was pregnant. In the 50's no one took pictures of pregnant women. I was always hiding behind a beach ball. Today, I wish that I had some to bring back the memories.The room is going to look so cute...please show a picture of it all finished and that sweet baby in the crib.
It's looking very nice to me!

Oh my! I didn't realize this was hand-painted at first. I kept wondering how you got that wallpaper border! Truly amazing artwork. I love how unusual it is. You are all super talented!
