I was walking by the mirror yesterday and caught a side view of the growing belly. Wow. There are no words. That's 38 1/2 weeks pregnant for ya' all. Henry calls the 'lines' on my belly railroad tracks and his trains take a trip there at least once a day. I'm really starting to feel it people. I won't get on the complaining train because I know I'll never get off, I'm just sayin'. It's getting really uncomfortable and dare I say, this Mama is getting to be a bit of a grumpy pants. Normal daily things are just getting so hard to do which is the most frustrating part of it all. Although the one downfall to having said baby is that I will no longer be able to refer to my girth as 'my delicate condition' although whose kidding who, it hasn't gotten me any special privileges anyway.
I did make some very small progress in our bedroom and was able to check a few things off my 'to-do' list. The black and white framed photo's have been sitting on the floor since we moved in, um, 6 months ago. It was just one of those annoying things that had been nagging at me- one of those things that I can assure you, I won't want to do after having a baby. So I sucked it up, got out the hammer and nails and did some damage. Some of the frames are empty or have pictures that I want to exchange with new baby ones, but I thought if I could at least get them up, that's half the battle right? I've still got a few more that I want to add to the left side of the wall, so maybe I'll be brave and do that this weekend. But I did get the co-sleeper up. All by myself thankyouverymuch. And let me tell you, it took all bloody day. I'd try it for a few minutes, it wouldn't work, cursing was involved followed by leaving the room. That happened about 10 times throughout the day. But I did it myself. It only took 10 hours. That's gotta count for something.
Bedrooms are tough. I always feel like it's the one room in our home that gets the most neglect. You want it to be all cozy and warm and I feel like I'm always about 2 steps behind. What kind of stuff do you 'accessorize' a bedroom with? It's still pretty bare bones in there. There isn't anything on any of the other walls, which is quite noticeable since it's a pretty good sized room. I was debating painting, but so do not have time for that right now. And you know what? We need a bigger bed. I'm just going to throw that out into the universe. With Henry wanting to come into bed with us more & more (I think he's realizing that life as he knows it is about to come to a screeching halt) and a new baby who will probably split time in the co-sleeper and in our bed, we desperately need to move to a king. It just would make for a better nights sleep for all involved. I love our bed, though. I lusted after it for years and finally 3 years later bought it. I would be so sad to ever part with it. It pains me to even type the words. Maybe someone could 'borrow' it from us for a few years or something. I gotta keep the options open.
