I thought I would pop in to provide some quick updates to the ole’ neglected blog.
On the baby:
About a month ago we found out that we are having a baby boy! We are just so excited that everything is checking out great and we keep get great reports at all of my doctors visits. I’m currently 24 weeks and this little guy will be here before we know it!
On the nursery:
We have our crib in and luckily we really like it! I read a bunch of reviews on amazon and just randomly picked one. It wasn’t expensive, it’s sturdy, has great reviews and seems like it will be a solid crib. It also converts into a toddler bed. But, I’ll worry about that need in a couple years.
I’ve also ordered a dresser that will double as our changing table and we have selected a glider that will likely be ordered soon. I’ve made a registry, scheduled some baby prep classes in March, and found a pediatrician. I feel pretty on top of it! Woop. Thank you to the sweet friends who have already started to gift us baby items. You rock and our baby will love you. I just know it.
Well…this category isn’t going so perfectly. Up until the holiday break, I was holding strong with swimming on Saturdays, yoga on Sundays, and walking. Unfortunately, I got pretty sick after Christmas and had to put things on hold. I’m feeling better now and am looking forward to “working out.” I use quotations because I miss the feeling of working out really hard. I miss running. I get jealous when I see people out running. But I just have to wait for now. I know I’ll be back to it.
FYI-It’s a great time to start training for spring races. The bridge run is about 12 weeks out and the Palmetto 200 will be here before you know it as well. I look forward to hearing how friends do in both of these races! (And good luck to everyone running the Chs Half or Full marathon too!) I’ll be with ya next year! ;)
This project took a back burner over the holidays, but we did make some progress the weeks before. David did a great job on the back-splash. We had a little kitchen-viewing-holiday-dropin-baby-boy-party before Christmas and it was so nice to finally have a few friends and neighbors over to check out all the progress. Here is a little snapshot looking into the kitchen from the dining room. (It’s still dark, because we still haven’t hung lights. Oops.)
I hope your year is off to a great start! Happy New Year!
