    How funny! I was on your blog not even 10 minutes ago seeing if there were any new baby posts. My little guys are older now (7 and 10) so I can sit back and enjoy your pregnancy with you and my memories. You are such a cute mommy to be! For some weird reason I keep having dreams about you so I feel like I know you even though you have no clue who I am. Haha (Yes, I know that sounds creepy LMAO You are the sweet friend that I want to spend time with in my dreams that include you)

    I love the gray and navy together! Then add some pops of hot pink with other accessories.

    Crazy that someone the size of a carrot can cause so much movement and change! 🙂

    I love the paint colors – navy and gray are so pretty together, and will go well with pretty much anything you put in the nursery!

    It was pure luck that my husband could feel any kicks at 21 weeks. Now that I’m at 26 he feels them all the time! One day last week he laid his head down on my stomach to see if he could hear anything and the baby started punching him in the ear.

    I am with the others, I love the navy and gray! Such a gorgeous but neutral combo. Lots of options for you to play with as she grows.

    Does the rolling and kicking wake you up at night?

    I am excited to see how the nursery turns out. I am not pregnant nor am I close to being pregnant (doing a full IM in October first) but I have my nursery already planned out using navy as well and I want to see how other nurseries look in that color.

    Make sure you secure the dresser to the wall so it can’t tip.

    Does Derek’s work offer any paternity leave?

    I know that you didn’t ask for paint suggestions, but I will offer some anyway as someone who just painted every room in our house, including some you are interested in. 🙂

    We did a navy dining room. We used Hale Navy, and I love it. It’s a very rich, deep navy. Would look wonderful as an accent. I also painted the nursery Pale Oak, which is a great neutral shade. We did the closet in that room a deep jade green and kept the doors off so you can see it. And finally, our bedroom is Gray Owl, which is a great pale grey. Have fun. Oh, all colors – Benjamin Moore.

    Oh, the peeing!!! It is hard to believe it will get worse, but it will! I went a week overdue and for the last 3 weeks or so of pregnancy I would sometimes literally pee, stand up, and then sit back down to pee again. You know the good part about it though? By the time you have the baby you will be happy to endure the sleepless nights in exchange for not having to pee so much anymore!! 🙂

    I’m excited for your colors! Coincidentally, navy and grey are what my fiance and I picked for our wedding. With bits of pink.

    Paint colors are killing me! I bought so many samples of paint. I think I finally like one but need to see what Eric thinks. My biggest piece of painting advice is to always buy samples, paint can look so different from the swatch to the wall and even in different rooms. If you want, we have 11(!) grey paint samples from when we did our living room and dining room that you and Derek are welcome to if you want them.
    I emailed my HR about my maternity leave and they haven’t gotten back to me yet. My boss (who I’ve never met) also didn’t respond to my email telling him. At least my local supervisors seem to care. My company actually offers me 3 weeks paid before I have to use my sick time/short term disability so I definitely want to make sure I get all the right paperwork in.
    Looking forward to our little girls having play dates in the near future. It’s going to be October in the blink of an eye!
