Justin is painting the first coat of paint on the crib.  He worked so hard!  We found this super cute crib for only 25 euros used!  It is exactly what we wanted!  Justin sanded it down and painted at least two coats on it.  Took him a while, but it is done now and beautiful! 

Here I am painting the baby’s dresser.  Don’t mind my love handle!   Those are not pregnancy pajamas, so they were a bit on the tight side around my tummy! 

Yes, I took this picture of myself, pretending not to notice that the picture was being taken!  I’m a dork!  But you get the picture of how round and big the belly is!

Justin and baby.  He loves the baby so much already.  He talks to her and sings to her and plays with her.  It is sweet.  He is going to be such a great dad!!!!

    Such Beautiful pics Jen!!! Love them! And it’s normal to take pics of yourself when no one else is there to do so, or just won’t – – create a little candidness, that’s ok! I don’t think you’re a dork! And yeah – from Justin’s emails, he’s extremely excited! You BOTH are going to be great parents!

    What precious pictures Jen! Thanks for sharing little baby girl Powell with us before she makes her ‘real’ entrance! My mom’s heart is so full for you and Justin as you prepare your hearts and lives for loving and raising this treasure (aka: french babykins) that God has given you.

    Oh my gosh. I love those pictures!!! The one of Justin on your belly is too precious for words! You need to stop making people look at things that they didn’t notice before. I wouldn’t have thought twice about the love handle…still I don’t see what you are talking about…but I will tell you that it made me look for it. Just because we are observant people…doesn’t mean the rest of the world it. YOu are pregnant! Be one with it! love you sooo much! Can’t wait to see her!
