    Congratulations! And Merry Christmas. I love the photo of you and dad. I have photos like this for all five of my pregnancies. These make great memories for the kids. My Mr was pregnant right along with me – sympathy pains and appetite. Love the tree! Its so retro and brings back great memories from my childhood Christmases. We had one just like it when I was five. :-)

    You look lovely.

    Have you thought about hiring a doula.

    You have a beautiful Home to have a homebirth in.

    Rent the movie “The Business of Being Born” it is hilarious and serious documentary by Ricki Lake, she gives birth at home in her really good looking NYC apartment.

    Best to you.

    I hope everyone has been having a nice holiday season!

    Erin, the curtains are embroidered and they have sequins too so they’re sparkly. They were from west elm.

    Colie, Murray is a mutt. There’s definitely some German Shepard, but we’re not sure what else.

    You guys are just too too cute! That is going to be one lucky little kid! Just found your blog by accident. We just came back from our grand kids 1st bday, Christmas day and it was just sooooo much fun! Can’t wait to see your kids room.
    Popcorn ceilings here in Florida are big because builders don’t want to fuss w/making a perfect ceiling. cheater builders i say! But i do like our ceilings, which have a nice texture to them along w/our walls but… NO POPCORN PLEASE! Sticks to the ceilings and your teeth…
    Their daughter,s room is a mauvey dark pink w/bright white curtains and she is just a smiley nutcake fun baby..i have no clue if this is the color that has done this or not, but our son had a bright yellow/white room as a baby and he was a bouncing off the walls little boy…wonder if there is a book on color moods for babies? just a thought here. Now start posting names…that is fun! We have a Riley Kate and
    she is calling me Mimi now. I can’t see my young self being called grannie…hahahahahah Have fun and enjoy every moment!
