Life Around Here

Four more days until our little girl joins us!

The big kids are watching a movie (again) because when they aren't, they are breaking things. This time it was a picture frame.

Some time on Friday I realized I couldn't just keep Cruz in his pack-n-play for the next few months because I won't be able to lift him out after I come home from the hospital. Whoops! Wish I'd thought of that earlier. But considering how last minute his transition has been, he's done remarkably well. He got out of bed several times (in the first 30 minutes) the first night. Not at all last night and is currently taking his first nap in his big boy bed. (He only got out of bed once before he fell asleep for nap.) Not only that, but he stays in his bed until I come and get him in the morning... so thankful for that!

Have I told you I'm a crazy pregnant lady? No? I am. This is what our master bedroom looks like at this very minute. I think I've mentioned in previous blog posts that it's the room no one ever, ever sees because it's a disaster area. Well, the disaster had to be cleaned up if I was going to bring a baby home and share our space with her for a few months before she transitions to her sister's room. Then, after I cleaned up, I decided we should go ahead and remodel the room (since that's never been done). Our room (and Eliana's) used to be sleeping porch area. Then they both had some weird remodeling projects done which included gross ceiling tiles, some sort of wall board, and then (in our room) cheapy wood paneling. The wood paneling, ceiling tiles and most of the wall board is now down, and underneath is bead board! Hello! Now, to finish painting and such.

What were you up to this weekend?

Good luck with the new little one. Sounds like you are nesting big time.

You *are* a crazy pregnant lady! Hope you get everything done before your little lady makes her appearance. My boys watched many, many movies when I was pregnant too. ;)
