Update on Us
I can’t thank you enough for all your kind words yesterday. People say you shouldn’t give advice to those going through a difficult time. They say you should just listen. I say they don’t know YOU!
From practical stuff like the Home Depot gift card incentive to offers to help and words of understanding and encouragement, I was overwhelmed by your love. So here’s the update:
I am officially in nesting mode. Our amazing friends Jim Bob and Cindy stopped by and helped us move our king-sized bed (which we’ve been storing in the garage) into our teeny tiny bedroom. Our little co-sleeping family has been cramped for way too long. Since it’s at most three weeks until we have another little one in the co-sleeper beside us it makes sense that we at least stop waking each other up in the night. That will be the baby’s job.
Also, we had a showing yesterday. The realtor commented that our house was beautifully updated but that the rooms were too small. Eeek!!! Did I mention that we also moved our queen bed into one of the secondary bedrooms as a backup for when I need to be up with the baby? People thought they looked small before, so what will they think now? Do any of you know any optical illusions for making a room look bigger? Seriously, I’m really asking. Alexa??? Anyone???
Saturday is fun with Katie day!!!
I had hoped to plan several special times with our little girl in the weeks before the birth, but more often than not she has been shuffled around between family members as we prep for showings, negotiate, sign paperwork, etc. This Saturday we hope to ride the train to Dallas for a day at the Aquarium and whatever else we can drum up. Any suggestions for great stuff to do in Dallas with a toddler?
Babypotamus isn’t showing any signs of warming up for birth yet, so next week I’m planning to do the giveaway I mentioned. See you then!
