25 days to go!

I can't believe there is 25 days left. This weekend Tim put together the bassinet and swing. They are SOOO cute. We stayed up late on Saturday night opening toys and putting away his stuff. The mattress is in the crib and his "new friends" are chilling there waiting for them, especially Hedgie the Hedgehog.
I believe I did roughly 6 loads of laundry for him too: bedding, bath items, socks/bibs, 3 loads of clothing. I boxed up the bigger items for 6+ months up.
We also have put all the furniture in downstairs. We still need some photos and art but the down stairs is almost done. Just needs the locker/coat rack built and put up. As I type, my feet are up and the dogs are next to me snoring. They love it!

As of now I am going to be teaching 3rd grade again, which is great since I just did this year teaching it so I am used to it and just work on the areas that I had challenges in. Also I know what needs to be done so I can get a head start. My students have the ELA exam the next 2 days (wish them/us) luck! Their first state test of many.
pictures will be coming!

Belly Shots 34 & 35 Weeks

My ankles do not exist anymore, my feet are ALWAYS bloated and I cannot wait for these cankles to be gone.

25 years old now, Home Owners and A MONTH AWAY

I am now a quarter of a century old. I cannot believe it, but its true and I will be a mommy in a month. Holy hell my life has changed so much so quickly. Homeowner- we moved in on my birthday. The house is coming along, our bedroom is the only thing 90% done just need a few pictures and mirror hung up. The garage also is Tim's top priority he waited years for his own.

Paint job: Behr Paint Graphic Elegance Line: Elephant Skin Top & Burnished Clay Bottom
New Bed: Sealy Blossom from Sears great deal $735 with delivery down from over $1700. Delivery guys helped put on the bedskirt for me too!
Bedding: Dahlia Bedding from Bed Bath & Beyond September 2006 (Bridal Registry & Shower gifts that were saved for out house, over 3.5 years)
We are changing the kitchen around, and repainting the living room and adding a desk hutch. A lot to get done and 30 days to do it before Jack comes.

Saturday (4/17) we went to childbirth class. Not a lot on breathing but we did learn some. Also we had the tour of the labor & delivery and saw the nursery. The nursery made it seem so much more real. Little babies- I can't wait for Jack to get here. Although I need to complete his room first- too many toys and clothes already.
This weekend I hope to get more done, placed around the house. Thank god Tim is handy or nothing would be changed or done.

Happy Easter.

It has now been 2 years since my Grandma Gert passed away 4/3/08. What makes it even harder is that she lived around the corner from where we are staying. I go to her old street daily for Starbucks, the same one we were so excited to open up so we had a new place to hang, the one that opened up a week after her passing. She'd be so excited about the new house and baby on the way, I hate that she is not here and missing everything. I do know she is smiling down on me, if Jack comes out on the 21st of May it would have been her wedding anniversary.

Last Sunday in Yonkers! Tim is working tonight so I will be spending the day in Brewster with my family. They day started before 9am with the dogs hitting me to get up, they wanted to go outside. Tim came home soon after, then when he left again the gate was left open. So a while later I realized Bailey was missing. Awesome, I became the crazy lady in a robe walking up and down the street this morning looking for my stupid dog. He was near the playground, and got back into my car and then wouldn't get out because he knew it meant the kennel for a while. Don't you just love honest dogs?

Next easter I will have an 11month old, egg hunt and basket. I can't wait, also I will be in my own house. I can't wait! I can't wait to be in our house finally next weekend. Decorating!!!

WE CLOSED!!! I am so happy, but we move in until April 10th -MY 25th BIRTHDAY!!!

So much to do now that we can move in the house 9 days from now!! Curtains, paint, sofa covers & baby's room. The people who know me best know I don't wait, I will have this all done before the baby comes and probably before May. I wait for nothing.
Once again Breaking News: Tim and I are home owners now!
