"Let your spouse put an ear to your belly -- he might be able to pick up baby's heartbeat (no stethoscope required).

In other news, we're going to Babies R Us register tonight! We've started some stuff online, but we need to see things in person. Ryan is only going to be forced to help me do the big stuff.

The nursery walls are almost completed. We just have some touch-up to do on the paint and the room will be ready for furniture! I found some curtains on super clearance at Pottery Barn, so I ordered them for the room and they should be arriving in mid-February. I have an armoire that I plan to refinish this month, get the furniture, bedding and crib mattress ordered at the beginning of March and hopefully be ready for the final touches and accessories at the end of March. We'll see how my plan goes! :)
