I hope you all had a wonderful New Years Eve and a great start to 2013. We of course are very excited for 2013, as 2013 is the year we will be expanding our family by one! And let me tell you, it feels like time is flying! I have been very fortunate to have all last week off and will finally go back to work tomorrow. We have been able to get a lot done here around the house, as well as spend time with lots of family over the holiday. I think we are both feeling the time crunch that Little Man will make his appearance fairly soon, and that we have lots to do. We have completely reorganized the kitchen and storage room and next weekend we will tackle his nursery. Our weekends are already filling up, so we are trying to make good use of our time as a family of two. Here are some things on our list the next few weeks.
1. Paint and decorate the upstairs bath
2. Organize Little Mans room
3. Make and freeze meals for maternity leave
4. Get carpets professionally cleaned
5. Put away, wash etc. all things for Little Man
6. Go out on some dates and enjoy our time as a family of two. 🙂
I know things will come up to add to that list, but those are our goals the next 60 days or less! 🙂
Below is my 31 week update, please excuse the grunge look, I have another photo of me and my sisters where I look a little more presentable. 🙂
How far along? 31 Weeks, 3 days
Maternity clothes? Yes
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: Some nights are better than others
Best moment this week: Ringing in 2013! Is the year we will welcome our little man, and we are getting closer and closer.
Miss anything? Sleeping on my stomach, being able to walk up our millions of flights of stairs without getting completely out of breath.
Movement: Lots! Big rolls and kicks, and it seems he has found a punching bag in my bladder. 🙂
Food cravings: Steak, fish, and lots and lots of sweets! Always the same!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Have you started to show yet: Yes!
Gender: BOY! Little Man, as I like to call him. 🙂
Labor Signs: No thank goodness, but I have had a lot of Braxton Hicks lately.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On except at night I’ve been taking off all my rings.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Both. Shout out to my wonderful husband here, for putting up with me the last 6 months. He has truly been a Saint and I am so thankful he has put up with my weird cravings, moods, and everything else. This is love. 🙂
Looking forward to: We finally start childbirth prep classes this week. They are four weeks long, two hours each week. I can’t wait to be a step closer!
Cheers to you all and I hope you have a great 2013!
