Birthday weekend & nursery progress

My birthday was this weekend. Patrick and I celebrated with dinner and a Hawks game that night. Yes, I do love Hawks games. I feel like I have to explain that when I tell people what we did for my birthday, otherwise most people are probably thinking, "What was Patrick thinking? Taking his wife to a basketball game for her birthday...he has no clue!" Ha-he does...and it was a perfect night. We used to be able to go to the games a lot when he was in sports marketing-but since he's not with that job anymore we haven't gone as much, so it was a nice treat. 

Before dinner...
Sweet little birthday arrangement waiting on me when I woke up on my, Toms ballet flats, Hawks tickets, and dinner reservations...and a few sweet treats too. :) 

We went to South City Kitchen. This is where we went on our first date too. It was the first time we'd been back. We might have to make this a more regular celebratory dinner place...super yummy! 

Zaza Pachuuuuuuuuuuulia warming up 

I get slightly giddy when I'm at games. If only that was Bibby instead of Hinrich though...

Got to spend Saturday with this sweet little guy...

My parents came in town for my birthday and as a little birthday treat, my dad painted the nursery for me. Here's a before picture...

Busy painting...

Almost there...

Putting the crib together

Not the finished project, but what we have so far. Love walking by and seeing that sweet crib...just a visual reminder of how much sweeter our life is soon going to get. Can't wait to meet her! 

As for other baby updates, she's moving around a lot more. I'm feeling her a ton during the day. Probably one of my favorite feelings ever. Patrick has been able to feel her a bunch now too, and my mom even got to feel her move this weekend. You can also see the little jumps if you watch my stomach closely. Enjoying this time, feeling great, and looking forward to welcoming her home in a few months.
