It only took four months, but we finally unpacked some art and hung it. Matt wore his work apron and used a carpenters pencil to mark and measure. It was very official. It was very Norm Abrams. The midwife confirmed today that yes the baby dropped, and so it is more like 1-3 weeks for him to show up not five or six. So we nested in a hurry today. Power nesting.
My previous obsession with religious portraiture is over. All of the Marys are going to the garage sale, including Mary, the handless yard statue with wire where her pointing paws used to be. Seems kind of an ill fit for a house with a new kiddo. Jesus' mom with some real blind-you claws is surely perfect for someone else though.
