What we've been doing

I could really get used to Seth staying at home all week! We have gotten so much done. The two rooms upstairs that have been driving us crazy are looking pretty good! I can't tell you how many nights I have gone to bed thinking that those rooms were never going to get done. When Seth's two friends came in town, they helped him move all the heavy stuff out and it took them about 15 minutes. So yesterday, Seth and I spent all afternoon setting up his desk, setting up my keyboard and organizing the closets. The office area is done!!! Today, we are finally painting the baby's furniture. We did a test strip last night though, and the paint is way too light. Seth has taken the paint to see if they can make it a little bit darker. Today we will paint and hang our curtains. Oh I am just so excited to not have to worry about that. And we still have 5 1/2 weeks to spare!

Also, my back is feeling so much better. I guess the little booger moved. Last night I dreamed that I had him early and he had red, curly hair. He looked just like my little brother did when he was born except he had a wider face and he weighted 11 pounds and 14 ounces!!!! AHHHHHHHH! I felt really bad for Seth because the baby looked nothing like him. Thankfully it was just a dream.

So, if anyone has any ideas on how I can stop being so anxious to have this little guy, please do tell. I know that now is Seth and mine's last chance to spend alone time together. We have been taking advantage of it. We went to a new Japanese restaurant last night and then Barnes and Nobles to look at magazines (one of my very favorite things to do) Then we stayed up until 2am watching movies. Oh, why do the fun days have to end??? Seth has to go to work Sunday after church and then Monday starts the regular work week. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted!

I hope you guys enjoy your weekend. I will post the before and after photos of the babies furniture. Hopefully the after will look better than the before! Ciao!

be careful around the paint fumes hun!!! it's bad for the baby, I was painting some stuff when i was and my mom, was being a mom-LOL, and found some articles that say the paint fumes are bad for pregnant women.

on another note, come paint C's room while you're at it! hehe.

The Olympic Paint at Lowes has low fumes (still need to have a fan on and the room open though). We are painting the kids rooms with that (well eventually the whole house).

As for advice on how to not be as anxious for the arrival...I can't really give any.

I can't wait to see what the little booger looks like too!
