Closets, Ludarcis & Pregnant Men

September 24, 2008

7 weeks to go. Physically I am much the same as I was a week ago.  I feel really round now – everytime I get out of the car I start singing in my head “Roll Out” by Ludacris. More like just the part that says “Roll out” since that’s what I am actually doing rolling out of the car, rolling out of bed – just lots of rolling!

I am making some progress in getting things ready for Everett – for instance I preregistered at the hospital and ordered some stationary.   But then I find myself getting sidetracked by things like – organizing the linen closet and wanting to organize our very cluddered pantry.  Attention all closets – If you are cluttered I am coming to get you!

We did start getting Everett’s closet ready also- hanging all those little clothes up – totally to die for cute!

We are 3 weeks in to our child birth class.  It’s been an experience – we are the only couple in there having a boy.  Last night the dads had a go at feeling what it was like to be pregnant full term.  They had to wear a sympathy belly that weighed 32 lbs.  All in all it was pretty funny! Of course I got some pictures – and because Adam is such a great sport I’ll share them with you!

8 weeks and counting

September 15, 2008

We have about 8 weeks left until Everett is due to make an appearance- that is if he holds out that long!  We are busy trying to get everything ready for his anticipated arrival.

We added a few more things to the nursey – a dresser from IKEA and the letters for Everett’s name.  I also painted a painting to hang in there and Adam hung the mobile we bought from Africa a few years ago.

Adam and I started taking childbirth classes last Tuesday – we lucked out that some friends are in there with us.  It’s a five week class and finished up in early October. I have my first shower planned for early October and I just got a copy of the invitation yesterday – they are so cute! I’m really excited about it.
Speaking of things I’m really excited about – Adam bought me a sling i’ve been wanting for my birthday – it came the other day.  It’s organic cotton and oh so pretty!
Overall things are going well. I’ve started working on Everett’s baby book – I couldn’t find anything premade that I like so I’m planning to tackle it all from scratch. You know I can’t do anything the easy way it seems! On another note my belly button is slowly disappearing – I think it looks like it is winking now:
Everyone has been asking for pregnant pictures so here are a few:
