Haley's Nursery

We finally have the nursery almost finished. We still need a add a couple finishing touches like decorations, etc. We have everything put up now and are getting ready for her arrival! Today's countdown is 28 days! Yikes! I went into hyper nesting mode this weekend where I couldn't stop cleaning, washing, etc. I have all of Haley's clothes washed and ironed...yes, that is right I said ironed. if you know me well, you know that I hate to iron. I usually say that sitting in the car caused the wrinkles...not my lack of ironing. I will post more pics when the nursery is finally finished!

Lessons Learned

I have to brag on Gus...he goes to the door when he needs to go outside, he sleeps in (thank you Patrick and Sara!), and he loves to snuggle when you can get him to stop moving around. Another thing he is developing a love for is chewing on things. My arm, his bone, his rope, my toes, his bed, and his favorite thing so far...my work security badge. I didn't think anything of it yesterday when he got a hold of one of the corners of the badge. Turns out, that corner contains the chip that activates the badge. I had no access to the building, no access to my cafeteria money, etc. The guys in security got a kick out of it yesterday. Imagine how silly I felt this morning having to turn in my badge for a second day in a row with the chip chewed up again. My lesson learned...don't leave your work bag on the floor!!

The heat has been difficult on my feet and hands this week. I bring flip flops to work to change into after lunch because shoes don't seem to fit anymore. I can still wear my wedding band, but the engagement ring had to come off last Sunday. I have begun a new game where I make the people that are only 4 months along and park in the expectant mothers parking spaces feel guilty as I walk from the back of the parking lot at 8 months. I might have to start fighting a little harder for the spots!

Trey and I went to childbirth class last Sunday and were surprisingly the youngest people in our class. One couple was in their mid-40s and had been married for 22 years. I know that I am older, but the thought that they got married when I was in the 5th grade and we are having a baby at the same time makes me laugh. I did learn that if they show you a needle, Trey will still freak out, but if he takes Gus to the vet to get shots he is fine....

We hope to finish the nursery next week and post photos!
