Mike's been busy....

putting together baby stuff. I was crazy to think that this stuff actually came put together, but no, it doesn't. And by the way, batteries are never included but I don't know that we have gotten anything that didn't need them. So, we are all set for Cason to bounce, swing, and sleep... now we just need Cason.

Pregnancy Update

What is that? That's the view I have when I look down.

If I had written this a week or two ago as I had intended it would be much different. I would have said that the 3rd trimester was going great, the best so far. Even though I couldn't stand for a long time I wasn't having that much trouble getting around and even though I wasn't sleeping, I still had a bunch of energy during the day.

Ah, well the last month is now kicking my butt. I'm getting quite uncomfortable and I don't know what to do about it except hope that I can make it to the end. I still don't sleep a lot for 2 reasons: 1- frequent potty breaks- but I'm pretty much used to those; and 2) carpal tunnel. Yes my friends, it is a symptom of pregnancy. I thought it was just an excuse for people to claim short term disability but I'm here to tell you, it is AWFUL! Horrible pain in my wrists through my hands. It's the swelling of the pregnancy and it's cutting off circulation to my hands. At first it started with numb fingers, which I can deal with. Now, I will wake up and not be able to straighten my fingers or move my wrists. Sometimes I am awakened by the equivalent of a charlie horse in my wrist. This is one thing I'm hoping will go away soon after I give birth. Luckily, it's not that bad during the day, I only notice it if i sit very still for a long time (like watching a movie) or typing a bunch. Otherwise, his movements have gotten a little more uncomfortable, and now i really can't stand or walk for very long at all. All I wanted was to have the kitchen clean tonight and I was limping around the kitchen because of the pain in my hip.

Oh well, I guess this is all part of the deal. I'm just ready for him to get here!

The Rocker

This is the rocker we have for Cason's room. I believe it belonged to my moms grandmother (she can correct me in the comments if I'm wrong) and has been passed down since then. It's called a platform rocker and you can really see but the base sits flat on the floor and the chair part rocks on the base. We recovered it in a fabric that matched the nursery and it looks great in there. I love mixing modern with antiques, I think it's important to know that you don't have to get rid of everything old if you like the clean modern look.

Had to show you!

We just finished adding these touches to the nursery so I wanted to post them because I think it looks so cute. We put his name on the wall and some 3D wall circles. When it's all really done I will have someone with better camera skills than me come and take real pictures. I'm so excited!
