Nursery Preview

This is your official nursery preview...we are *almost* done with things, but are still waiting on the cutest ever rocking chair and some art to be framed.
Mr. Q said it's his favorite room in the house - he wants to lay down a sleeping bag and spend the night in there watching her sleep :)

I can no longer reach my toes. As much I contort and's just not happening. This must mean it's time.
That's right...time for a pedicure.
So I did it. I got a pedicure in my 36th week of pregnancy and it was fantastic. And while I can't reach my toes, I can still see them...and boy are they cute.
Other highlights of the week include, but are not limited to: beginning final touches on the nursery, putting away all of Raisin's clothes, toys and books, and installing the carseats. The weather has been on the nice side, so we've been able to walk outside (albeit at a slow pace) and enjoy our pretty surroundings. Neighbors are beginning to come out of hibernation and everyone is excited to meet our little lady.
I've been feeling pretty good for the most part, save for the occasional Braxton-Hicks (ie: practice contraction) when I'm out walking, but overall cannot complain. I think I'm finally settling into a tranquil state that helps me believe we are ready to have this baby.
4 more weeks to go...

Calm Before the Storm

Our post title might not be super accurate. I mean, it's not entirely "calm" around here...there are a zillion things to do before Raisin arrives. I am working a lot, Brian is working a lot and we even bought a microwave.
Did you know we didn't even have one? Now we are so modern it hurts.
Brian finished painting the nursery, and I've washed and folded every piece of clothing or fabric that Raisin will come in contact with during her first 3 months of life. Still have yet to actually organize and put away said items, but that will happen. Eventually.
I've been incredibly tired. What's new? But this tired is taking things to a new level. I suppose when you're carrying what is now a 5-6 lb baby, she is going to be demanding in regards to energy. Thankfully, we've had some wonderful visitors to keep our spirits up. Mr. Q's parents came down a couple weeks ago and helped put together furniture for the nursery, and then my parents came this past Easter weekend. We relaxed, cooked, took walks around the Riverwalk and of course dyed eggs. Okay, so we only dyed a few eggs and drew silly faces on all the rest...but it was beautiful decoration nonetheless.
Look for new pics this weekend as we hit the big 36 weeks!
