Snails with tiaras

Elle's nursery decor. Note the snails with tiaras... not your typical froo-froo bears or fairies or carnation pink lace... but take an unorthodox snail and add a sparkly tiara and voila! Bedding fit for a princess! And mushrooms too... to encourage her to eat her vegetables at an early age-- Hmmm, come to think of it, are mushrooms even vegetables?

As the bump grows...

22.5 weeks now, and the littlest Golding continues to grow... and now she's wiggling about all the time. An odd feeling, someone dancing on your cervix and bladder-- I think we may have a little ballerina on our hands (note the pointed toe in the ultrasound picture!) I was singing to her the other day and she started kicking like crazy... Jay gently suggested that she can probably already discern pitch (or lack thereof) and maybe I shouldn't do that anymore. Ballerina maybe, but if my genes have any say in the matter, a singer she will not be! 
Next task is working on the nursery, we'll get pictures when we've made some progress. Only 17 more weeks!
