It's a boy...

A cute little 14 oz baby boy. That’s what we were told yesterday during our ultrasound. It was absolutely amazing. At one point he opened his mouth and started sucking his thumb. I can’t wait to see him again next month when we have the 4D ultrasound done!

As for the name, we decided on Camden J Laurent. The name Camden is from a baby name book Brian got for me as a gift for Valentine’s Day. It means "winding valley". The J is a tradition we decided to continue on Brian's side of the family... Not really a middle name, just an initial. Brian’s middle initial is J, as well has my dad’s 1st initial, both of his parents middle initials and both of his grandmothers 1st initials. Just keep in mind it’s just a J not a J with a period.

So now that we know we will be having a little boy, a lot of the decisions we made for the nursery have changed. Originally, we were going to go with waynes coating and chair rail on the bottom half of the walls and paint the top half either blue or pink. However, I found myself searching the Internet for nursery ideas at 2am last night. Excited about what I found on HGTV – Rate My Room, I woke Brian up first thing this morning and asked if he would be willing to paint the nursery like the 1st picture below. It doesn't have to be identical. In fact, I really just want to use this room as an inspiration. I love the accent wall so maybe we can attempt something similar. I'm a little nervous on how to approach this project. I think we may have to try painting a small section of the wall to see if it looks okay. We've never attempting a paint project like this before. If it doesn't turn out I guess we'll go with our original idea. I'll let you know how it goes. I've also posted a few other pics I like but the 1st one is definitely my favorite.
