This is week number 24 in my pregnant world, which means I've passed by another month. I see my doctor this week and my next visit will mark the end of monthly appointments. After that I'll be there a lot more often.
We painted the nursery this weekend, and the color turned out perfectly! The furniture is organized, but we haven't done any decorating yet. I'm still looking for the right accents, so that will be a work in progress. Poor baby girl, she's getting the smallest room in the house. Evan's room and Jeff's office (the other bedroom) are fairly big, but hers is just a little box. Although, I do think it will feel bigger when it no longer has all of the nursery necessities, because our rocker takes up a ton of space!
I'm feeling bigger every day, but I'm still managing to fit in a couple workouts per week. Because I felt so awful, I took an exercise hiatus in the middle of my first trimester. But once I got through the holidays, working out became a priority again. Granted, my work outs aren't what they once were, but I enjoy them. My back usually feels better after I exercise as well, so that's added incentive.
And what about Evan? He loves the baby's room. He constantly wants to go in there and sift through all of his old toys and books, like he's finding buried treasure. He talks about baby girl a lot more now and even prays for her at night. It's all terribly cute. And also reminds me on a daily basis how I have yet to
Before I can start work on the photo book, I have to finish another project. My spring/summer cookbook. I want it to be finished in plenty of time, so I won't have any meal planning to do before or after the baby is born. I've already compiled the recipes, so now I'm working on the menus before moving on to the fun part (insert sarcasm,) the data entry. I'm really looking forward to this edition, it's at least 75% new recipes and a lot of them fall in the salad category. Lots of light/fast dinners for those hot summer days! And speaking of, that's actually what I should be working on right now...
