22 Weeks + Ellia's Nursery

How far along:  22 weeks
Gender:  Girl
Belly button in or out: Still partially in and partially out.
Maternity clothes:  Definitely noticing my regular shirts starting to get shorter and shorter...
Stretch marks: None yet. 
Sleep: Good!
Best moment this week: Some short commutes this week meant I got to sleep in - until 5:45 ;)
Miss anything: Not baby related, but I'm really missing summer right about now!
Movement:  She seemed to be the most active this week whenever I was in some kind of meeting at work. Not distracting at all. :)
Cravings:  Still loving sweets.  Pretty sure I've eaten more toast with cinnamon sugar in the past few weeks than I have in the rest of my life combined.  Ice cold water is always good, too.  
Queasy or sick:  Feeling good.
Looking forward to:  The brownies I'm making for dessert tonight.  Just being real.

I thought I'd share some of my ideas for Ellie's nursery.  Here are the three paint colors we're deciding between.  I thought we I had made our decision (who was I kidding), but I think I want to paint a bigger section of the wall before I decide since we have the samples anyway.  The colors look a little different actually on the walls than they do here.

I bought these white & gray polka-dot sheets on Amazon (for $10!).  We're not going to pick out a whole crib bedding set (since she can't actually sleep with blankets for a while, anyway). So, I'm just going to get a few sheets, maybe a crib skirt, and call it a day.

We also got this rug from Home Decorator's Collection a while ago.  I might regret the white, but it really helps to brighten up the room.  Our kitties love it, too. Faux Sheepskin Area Rug, 5'X8', White: Home & Kitchen
There are no ceiling lights in two of our three bedrooms, which kind of drives me crazy.  Needless to say, we'll need some kind of lighting!  So far these lamps from Target are my top choice, and they'll pretty much match anything else we use in the room.Safavieh Norwich Table Lamp (Set of 2)
I also ordered these letters to spell out baby girl's name above her crib.  I really liked these ones from Anthropologie, but they were a little out of my price range.  I bought similar letters from this same etsy shop before and really like them, so I think they'll look pretty cool. :)

These beautiful hand painted silver letters are great for putting names, initials, and quirky sayings in any room in your home! They can stand

I'm unsure about getting a mobile, but this pretty little thing might convince me to get one.

There are approximately 5 million prints on etsy that I like and I find more everyday, so I'm still working on narrowing it down.  Here are a few of my favorites at the moment.  They're digital so they're super cheap - just print and find a cute frame!
