What a week! It’s been a very busy one 🙂 Monday night we had dinner with some friends that we hadn’t seen in almost 3 months! And it was a lot of fun- they are newlyweds and what a wonderful couple! We always have fun with them.
Wednesday I cleaned the new refrigerator almost all day long! It didn’t seem that dirty, but I’m pretty picky about stuff that comes from people I don’t know. Wednesday night we finished putting together our bookshelves – and boy, do they look good!! It almost looks like they were built in.
Thursday I spent pretty much all day working on the bookshelves – as in reorganizing, putting books on them, and putting together IKEA storage containers. I also finished cleaning the new refrigerator and reorganized the garage so that I could plug it in – and it works! That was a job! I was super tired after all that!!
Friday, Sean & two of our friends drove to Tallahassee for the NC State game (I had to work Saturday and insisted that he went). Yay to FSU for winning Saturday! Today Sean & friends are driving home and I have been working on the den some more. I was able to empty out two big boxes. I also finished my research on cord blood banking and hopefully Sean & I can decided on that this week so I can start that process.
I’m hoping to make appointments with a couple pediatricians this week too. A friend gave me some good advice the other day- she said not to stress out about all this stuff that I have to do. She said get the baby stuff done and all the other stuff will still be there waiting. She’s right! I just feel like I need to get it all done right now, but I know I don’t need to – it will still be there tomorrow. I am going to have my glucose screening on Wednesday – not really looking forward to that. I really hope I pass it 🙂
Oh- I keep forgetting to report this… my dad has decided on a name for himself. He will be Granddad – with the emphasis on the Grand! Also, this baby is moving a lot! Still mostly rolling and turning around, but definitely kicking too. ‘He’ is getting really strong! It is uncomfortable at times, but I still love it! Sean gets a kick out of seeing and feeling it too. So far I’ve gained 15 pounds. I don’t feel like I’m carrying ‘extra’ weight, but it’s definitely visible on me 🙂 in a good way!
Our little one is now the size of a head of cauliflower (a little under 2 pounds and about 14.5 in. long)!
