Third trimester.

Things we are doing (on top of preparing a nursery) that may seem crazy:

-Redoing our bedroom. It’s been neglected for so long. Our bed is *falling apart*, partly from it being old and taken apart and put back together too many times, partly because it’s got wicker on it and we have a cat. Enough said. I asked Dave that for my birthday present this year (which is two weeks before my due date) I wanted our bedroom to be pleasant. Dave is building a bed frame that can have storage under it. We are also painting (hallelujah! No more slightly pink/white walls!) and I got some new bedding. So. Happy.
- Redoing the floor in our kitchen/mudroom. The mudroom (which is the main entrance) is carpeted. CARPETED. It get’s SO dirty, and it drives me batty. The lino in the kitchen is about 100 years old and is so disgusting. This was an idea I had a few weeks ago, and then we decided that we didn’t want to push the idea too much with our landlady and maybe wait till next year. Well just yesterday she came up to Dave and said that she wanted to have the floors redone! Huzzah!
- Recording an album with our jazz band. We are doing a large concert at Christmas time and really want something to sell.
On top of all this, my photography has suddenly gotten busy and we still have some more gigs with the jazz band.
Oh, and I’m growing a baby. In case you forgot.

It’s difficult to believe that I am almost done with the second trimester.  I find it astounding that the first trimester feels more like a year, and the second has just breezed by (and by “breezed”, I don’t mean easy-breezy. Ha! But it’s been fast.)  I have been working on plans for the nursery for the past few weeks. We just got our dresser/change table (for free from craigslist!) and I plan on painting it, Dave is planning on painting it in the next few weeks.  We also did the daunting task of registering for baby gear at Sears and Baby’s R Us (on our 8th anniversary, no less!) Things are moving along quite nicely.  Other than the fact that it’s freaking hot and I feel like my belly is going to explode, I’m feeling pretty good.  Happy 24 weeks!

in the meantime…

Oh, hi!  I’ve been working hard this past little while at finishing this lovely wedding.  Hop on over to my Photography site and check out the rest of the shots!  It’s a good’n.

Meanwhile…I sit and drink gallons of water in preparation for my ultrasound today.  I’ll probably post later on today the results!  Stay tuned, fellow internetters.

Here it is.  The halfway point.

I promise to put up something other than bump shots/pregnancy stuff soon, but we just got back from vacation in Mexico, I’m busy trying to finish a wedding and I’ve been feeling a bit sick today…so things are moving at a slower pace.

I can’t believe I finally get to start counting down now.  It feels good to be on the other side of the countdown.

Yay for 20 weeks!
