A close-up

Here are some close-ups of the nearly complete nursery:




Here is a close-up of my ballooning ankle (Sasha dropped yesterday preventing nearly all lower body circulation):


And here is a close-up of the newly texturized pixie bangs:

My smile wasn't working very well today, so I cut it out of the picture, lol.

I am not sure I will be pregnant much longer. All bets are that she will be here in the next few days! By then I am sure my smile will be working and I will have happy, happy pictures to share. :)

I love the color of the walls! The nursery looks so cute! Guess you're all ready for Sasha to arrive.
And oh, how I know about swollen ankles! (had them terribly w/Kyle's pg) But your FEET are still super skinny! How on earth did you manage that one?! lol
And the bangs? Way cute. Thanks for the close-up. And rofl at you cutting your smile off

fabulous! I love the color of the walls and the pink carseat. Sheri's right. My whole foot looked like that. I like the texturized bangs. It's such a cute look. You pull it off very well. Plus, they won't be in your face during labor. ;)

BEAUTIFUL! Love the nursery! Your bangs look cute too. Sorry 'bout the ankles! I don't really experience that. I do, however, pee my pants often. Suddenly swollen ankles ain't so bad, ey?

Thoroughly Mormon Millie said...

Jane said...

Looks so good Lei! I hope you are holding Sasha soon.

And the bangs are way cute, they look good, you are always Beautiful!

Morning Glory said...

Anxiously awaiting the news! That nursery looks beautiful!

Bangs are cute, too.

QueenMeadow said...

The room looks great! And your bangs look fabulous!!!

Your poor ankles though :(, no fun. Here's hoping for a healthy little girl and a happy smilin' momma soon.

I think your bangs turned out well (I hope you're more pleased with them now that they're textured) - very cute!! And congrats on the nursery! I envy your progress. Of course, decorating is certainly aided by being sure of the gender you're expecting (I guess I'll have to wait a few more weeks :) Tons of ankle sympathy from me to you. Oh how I hate the swollen ankle! Like eveything else swelling isn't bad enough. Good luck in the next few days awaiting your daughter's arrival. How exicting (and congrats)!

Andrea said...

very cute all round!!!

Stephanie said...

Lei, I LOVE your nusery! Sasha is one lucky baby! I love all of the little details.

I am so sorry about your ankles. I had stretch marks on mine after dd#1. So not fun.

Your bangs are darling!

I wish that I'd been 1/2 as productive as you have been during my bedrest days. The nursery is gorgeous and I hope you don't have to wait too much longer for that smile. Maclaine

I love the color of the walls!I just love your nursery.

utmommy said...

Your bangs look really cute. I love short hair. You have a face that can definitly pull them off!!

The nursery is adorable. I have those same colors in my girls room. We don't have the walls done, and I was going to do them lavendar, but I really like the green. I might have to go for that instead.

Good Luck with the next couple of days, and with the birth!! Can't wait to hear the news.

beth said...

The room looks beautiful. I can't believe you were able to do all of that with those ankles:) I had them too. I would just sit and press on them sometimes to make my coworkers laugh. Occasionally I'd lift a pant leg during a meeting just to spice things up. Hope you are free of them soon!

Zoe said...

Okay, first of all, the nursery is sooo cute!! I love it!! You have been working hard! I was even noticing how cute and "girly" your car seat carrier is. (Not fair!!) They just don't make masculine flowers, do they?!

Second, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the bangs. For real. What do people at church say (where they can see you in person)? I bet they love it. I think that it is a cute, brave new style for you. I love it!

Amy said...

the nursery looks great!! Can't wait to see pictures of Sasha :)

txmommy said...

I lOVE the nursery!!!

you're almost there, hang in there!

The Constant Gardener said...

It is so beautiful!! You did a great job! I am so excited to see pics of little Sasha in there to complete it all!

Vanessa said...

What a super cute nursery. I love it.

itybtyfrog said...

What an adorable nursery....I so want a girlie nursery...we went with a gender neutral theme...seems ridiculous now, since we have had 3 girls. I hope Sasha comes soon and that everything goes well with delivery.

Gabriela said...

The room is awesome! I am so impressed.

sorry about your ankles, that happened to me with my first. Not pretty.

But, your bangs are, so that's the important thing!

Good luck! Hope she comes soon.

kfk said...

I love that green on the walls! Very adorable nursery.

Come on, Sasha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Mother Load said...

What are you talking about in your last post? Your bangs are cute! I love them. Besides, like you said when the baby is born everyone ignores you, you are no longer important. And like my husband says, "The sweat, black circles under the eyes, hair frizzed and stringy, and loose flabby skin are just all accessories on a wonderful childbearing mother."

I like the bangs. And the nursery. And the feet look painful. Make your dh rub them.
