It’s a boy!

Now that I’m 20 weeks along, I got my ultrasound and I’m having a boy! One of the first things we did was go and get some cute little baby outfits. I’ve been dying to buy baby clothes, but knowing the gender is pretty important when shopping. We’re excited to have a boy, although I don’t know much about boys! I’ll learn quick I suppose.

Yesterday we finally closed on the condo, so we’ve spent tonight packing to get ready to move when we get our keys. Having our own place will be so nice, renting is great and all from the standpoint of saving money and not having to care for the place, but I can’t wait to have new carpet, fresh paint, appliances from this century, AC, and vaulted ceilings. Definitely an upgrade.

The main thing I’ve been thinking about our new place is that I need to decorate! We aren’t students anymore and so now our place can actually look like a home, rather than a temporary spot. I got some curtains at Pier 1 yesterday, and I’m starting to think about what colors to paint the walls. Last night Aaron and I made a painting too, we love art, so we naturally want art all over our walls. What better way to get original abstract pieces than to do them ourselves?
