Dear Baby,

Mommy is sorry that she keeps putting off painting your room, but you need to understand where I'm coming from. The previous owners thought that it would be super fun to paint your room a hideous orange sponge-painted mess... even the ceiling. As if that wasn't bad enough, they then proceeded to paint the window frames, doors, and base boards hunter green, and once you learn your colors you will understand that those two colors do not really go together. On top of that, they chose to leave screws in all of the walls as well as some damage that Mommy and Daddy get to spackle. Do not worry however, because we still have plenty of time before your arrival to get it all squared away. But just so you know what we're dealing with, here are a couple of pictures for your viewing pleasure (someday)...

Exhibit A and B... what were they thinking???

On the plus side, we have picked a bright, happy shade of green to put on the walls and will be painting your base boards, doors, and window frames dark brown to match the bedding we have picked out for you. When you arrive in March, you will have a room full of the cutest little monkeys dancing around you and keeping you happy. Since Mommy and Daddy both liked it so much, we knew that you will, too, no matter if you're a boy or a girl (and we can hardly wait to find out in just a few more weeks!). So stay tuned for an update of your NEW wall colors, which will hopefully get done by the end of the month. We can't wait for you to get here to enjoy the home we have made for you.

More love than you will ever know,
Mom and Dad

Oh and PS - Even though I signed this letter that way, you are not allowed to drop the -my and -dy from our names until you are at least eighteen. That is the first rule we have for you. :)

PSS - Kick me harder... I still can't feel it and am waiting everyday for you to say "hello"!
