Beach Nursery theme started and bump photo update

Baby girl at 20 weeks. 
For a pregnancy update, I have been busy planning the nursery. We really wanted to get it finished by the end of June so that we can have free weekends in the heat of the summer. And I have a feeling I won't be feeling up to many big projects as I get bigger and it gets warmer out. 
I narrowed down my ideas to a beach theme. Garrett and I love to travel and be at the beach so we thought it fit us well. Garrett also didn't want a really girly looking nursery so this was a great option. I used Pinterest a lot for ideas. 

Here is a link to the Pinterest board I have been adding to as I find ideas:

So far we have ordered the dresser, side table and shelf to match an espresso colored crib that we are borrowing from my brother and sister-in-law. We also ordered a sheepskin rug, a couple of pillows and a pretty conch shell. 

I painted the inside of her closet with ombre aqua circles to liven it up a little in there and tie the them together. I also copied the design to a little stool that my dad made for me when I was little.  You can see it in the bottom of the photo below. The teddy bear in her closet was the first gift Garrett gave me for our first Valentines day back in 2003 when I was 16!! 

Here is a bump update from a couple weeks ago. I am 27 weeks today... which reminds me that i need to take another picture because it is sticking out a little more now. :) 

I have also been crocheting some hats and booties for her. This is her first Seahawks hat for when we are watching the games this fall! Go Hawks! We will definitely be teaching her to say that asap when she starts talking. 

I can't wait until we get to see her when she is born and see what she looks like. I have these pictures of Garrett and I up on our fridge from when we were little to compare. 

We celebrated Father's day last weekend and Garrett got a bunch of cute onsies that he will have fun dressing her in.
