30 weeks..whoa! I just can’t believe we only have 10 weeks to go! Last week was a VERY busy one so I decided to do a lot of relaxing this past weekend. It was nice to spend some time at home with the doggies, chickens and Chris…and, I didn’t touch my computer at all until Sunday night.
We spent a lot of time outside and my parents came over for dinner and to see Baby B’s cute little room on Sunday! A great weekend and I’m feeling much better this week! I went to yoga on Saturday and Darcey and I walked the Monticello Trail tonight which felt really good. I find that when I exercise, I feel a LOT better overall!
A couple of Thelma & Louise from the weekend…
Well, here we are at 29 weeks and it was a very productive weekend around here! Yeah, it’s pretty early but we have a VERY busy Spring so I wanted to get a head start. Saturday morning I unpacked the smaller stuff that we already have for the nursery and it is looking so cute! I still want to do a couple of decorating projects but here is a little tour of the nursery so far! I LOVE the changing table not only because it’s really cool but because Chris made it himself!
If you read Chris’ blog you know that we’ve been doing a bit of stroller research lately (Check out his post, Stroller Wars) and we actually found the one that we wanted on Craigs List this weekend! We were looking there because the orange one that we really wanted isn’t made anymore and we were really lucky to find a great deal on one that was only used for a very short time! My mom was even headed to Richmond today and was able to pick it up for us. Check out Baby B’s new ride, the Bumbleride Indie!
As if that wasn’t enough, Chris also spent ALL weekend working in the yard and our raised gardens look AWESOME!! By Saturday afternoon, I was feeling like a big slacker to so I did a little yard cleaning up and then planted a few flowers to make the front porch pretty!
Everyone had been saying that ‘the belly’ was really small and not even very noticeable but after the last few days, I think those days are over! I tried to take a photo of myself but it didn’t work very well so I had Chris take one from a distance too! I think it’s funny that Ellie is looking up at me like I’m nuts in the one I took!
We even ‘practiced’ putting the cloth diapers that Kathy & Desmond were nice enough to pass on to us on a teddy bear! :)
Between getting all of this done and working almost all day today, I am TIRED!!! Hope you all had a great weekend!!
Once again it’s been a while since I’ve blogged! It seems like time is just flying by…I am already 25 weeks pregnant. How is that possible!?!? I am feeling really good and the doctor says everything is looking great! We had the big ultrasound a few weeks ago and managed to get through it without finding out whether Baby B will be a boy or girl! We really do want it to be a surprise in June but it’s tough when it’s right there in front of you! I wasn’t planning to ‘publicly’ share any of the ultrasound photos but this one is pretty funny…the little guy (or girl!) had their feet in front of their face & arms behind their head most of the time! They are looking pretty ‘laid back’ to me. Hopefully that continues once they are born!
I *think* we’ve chosen 2 names which we’re keeping to ourselves for now because who knows if we will change our minds since we hear new ones every day! In the meantime, whether it’s a boy or girl, they have two (and just 2 so far!) pretty cool outfits waiting for them! Chris chose to put together plaid shorts, a BYOB shirt, a Red Sox bib and John Deere socks. A bit ‘boyish’ since I believe he’s thinking it’s a boy.
I, however, decided that the kid needs some JMU purple and gold (Go Dukes!) so I bought everything I could find here in UVA land. With all of these layers, I guess they will be warm at Homecoming this year at least!!
In other news…Chris has started a blog about his backyard & baby adventures: www.backyardbs.com He’s been doing lots of work to get the yard ready for Spring. The chickens have an upgraded coop and he’s already working on a raised garden! Oh, and I’m sure he will soon be blogging about how much he hates Pinterest since I keep finding all kinds of cool stuff for him to build on there. Check out this storage/changing table that he built last week. Don’t worry, it’s super sturdy and we’ll be adding a changing pad to the top. I just couldn’t see buying a ‘real’ changing table that I know I’ll never use when there are cool options like this in the world!
