Wishing everyone the most blessed 2010! We are sure excited about it, that’s for sure!
I’ve been bad about updating because we’ve been enjoying our time off at home so much. We did a ton to prepare for the baby in the last week, including cleaning out more junk than I thought we could fit in the place! The miscellaneous storage/office room that we have never fully moved into in two years of marriage is now officially going to be a nursery. We actually chose to stay in the small side of the house, and are looking forward to living a simple first couple of months as a family in May before potentially trying to do something different.
Today consisted of going to Home Depot to pick out new paint for the room (light green, which will match the bedding that my mom is so graciously making for us!), and for our room as well, which we will be rearranging a little. We also have researched baby equipment to death, deciding on a crib purchase, skipping the ‘Pack N Play’ for now, and getting a little bassinet for by our bed for the first little bit. We also stopped by Michael’s to take advantage of the 50% off baskets, which I ended up buying a ton of to put in the wall units in the nursery. Although I suppose it could just be classified as “nesting”, I’m just glad to get things done that we’ve really wanted to do for the past 2 years and just haven’t buckled down to do it. As Jesse put it – he just wants to make it a home for his little girl. The most fun part for me is definitely seeing him do that.
Oh, and last night was a fun moment. I’ve been of course feeling her move for awhile now, but she hasn’t been kicking hard enough for Jesse to feel it. I realized last night that she was moving so much that I could watch my stomach deform, so Jesse FINALLY (he’s been waiting for it) feels like he can take part by feeling her move too. Lots of fun, and we try not to take a single moment for granted.
