This mom and her baby like the rain because it makes for cooler weather! I broke out my new-to-me splatter shirt for a visit from my family and later a walk in the neighborhood. I bought the shirt (Anthropologie via eBay) thinking I could wear it while pregnant, but then I got a little too pregnant for the shirt. It's cool. It fits my two-week postpartum body just fine.

My mom pointed out my shirt matches the elephant painting in Thomas' nursery. They're both full of artistic splatters!

Such pretty splatters! Joyful splatters! Splatters of beauty!

The painting is the first thing we bought for the nursery. The nursery itself is still a bit disorganized. Our baby came early! I was so convinced I was going to end up two weeks late and miserable! Instead, he shows up four weeks early, and I get to spend a whole extra month with him before I'm scheduled to return to work. I'll take it, Thomas. I'll take it.

It's no big deal the nursery isn't perfect yet. We have time. Right now, we hang out in our bedroom and the living room. I've been watching Anthony Bourdain travel shows and googling the cost of trips to Japan. It makes sense that I have a little wanderlust since I'm going to be planted securely inside for most of this summer with my precious baby boy. So we're making plans. Want to go to Japan in five years Thomas? How does that sound? Sounds good to me!

The shirt (and painting) are both so happy. And I bet you got it for a great deal too on Ebay (I love looking and seeing what Anthro and J Crew pieces I can find on there).

Another Beautiful Thing
