19 Days to Go!


I’ll admit it, I’ve been a bad blogger.

Bad! Bad Blogger! *slaps own wrist*

I’ve honestly just been so out of it lately, that I haven’t had much (anything coherent anyway) to say. I’m sore, I’m tired, and, well… after I post this I’ll be going for a nap.

I’ve been thinking a lot about our pregnancy now that it’s almost over. There are things I’ve really enjoyed about being pregnant (feeling little E move, watching my alien trying to bust out, etc.), and a lot of things I won’t miss in the least (hemorrhoids, nausea, pelvic pain, contractions, waddling, etc.). Women really must have selective memories, or I can’t imagine why anyone would put in a repeat performance. 😉

The renovations here are so far behind that I prefer not to think about them. We got the front room done. I really do love having all my small animals (turtles, parrot, rats, chinchilla) in the same room. It’s nice to be able to sit there and visit with all of them. It’s the only room we’ve finished, so I’m spending quite a bit of time in there. Helps me stress less about the rest of the house.

We’ve bought all of the larger ticket items we’ll need for E’s arrival now. Car seat, stroller, crib, and bassinet (it’s really cool, if you want to look it up on the net, it’s the Simplicity 4-in-1 Convertible… yeah, it’s not the co-sleeper I wanted, but Damon wasn’t comfortable ordering something so expensive online, so I needed to find something that would work by our bedside locally, and this was what I found). Lots of little things still needed – like the ergo carrier, a diaper pail, a diaper bag, a wet bag (for in the diaper bag), etc. We’ll get there eventually though. At least we have enough that if I go in early (which my doctor says is a possibility) the baby can get home (car seat) and have a place to sleep (bassinet). The rest will come. 🙂

Damon and I finally nailed down our name choices. He’d decided he really didn’t want Alora or Edward, so we scratched them (despite my LOVING Alora). After some back and forth, he admitted that he wasn’t cool with the idea of two middle names (another thing I love, figure we should give our child as many choices as possible should they decide they don’t like their name)… so I let go of that too. What we ended up with were really his choices, but I’m totally cool with them as I liked everything we’d narrowed it down to. Soooo…. We’re expecting either

After my little sister, Marie, and Damon’s Papa, Sidney.

Anyway, now that we’ve caught up a bit. 😉 I’m going to head on downstairs, cuddle with my kidlets (dogs), and attempt to get comfortable enough for a short snooze.

Until I post another update, take care.
