Let's see, what has happened in the past 2 months? A lot, and not a lot at the same time. Let's start with the obvious. When I last posted, I looked something like this:
And today, I look something like this:
Just a little different :) I am 26 weeks this week, only 14 to go! I had a doctor's appointment today. This time when I stepped on the scale, I couldn't see my weight because my belly was in the way! First time that has happened. Turns out, that it might be a good thing that I can no longer see what I weigh. So far I have gained 23 lbs, 8 of which was in the last 4 weeks, haha. You can totally tell in my face :( As much as I would like to blame the baby, let's just be honest that it's really due to the fact that Easter candy is now out (Cadbury Mini Eggs are my ultimate weakness in life) (I might have eaten a bag a day for a few days) and my girl scout cookie order has arrived. I didn't order 9 boxes. No, no. I would never do that.
And here I was at 20 weeks:
The day we found out that this little one: (look at that little nose, it's my favorite part :) )
is a BOY!! To be honest, we were super surprised, because we were so sure that it was a girl. Or, as Lee put it, he was "preparing himself" for it to be a girl! Haha. He practically jumped out of his seat when she said "it looks like you guys are having a little boy" I mean, seriously, he was trying hard to contain his excitement because I was, not exactly disappointed, but just surprised. No joke, I asked the tech if she was sure! She said she was and showed us the goods. So that was about 6 weeks ago and now we absolutely cannot wait to meet our little Cooper Ethan. I mean, seriously, he can't get here soon enough, I am so ready to hold him!
Annnd, that's about all that has happened! I haven't done a thing to his room! We did order furniture, and much to our surprise, it was here in less than a week! We thought surely it would be 4-6 weeks for delivery, but it was more like 4-6 days. I have a few ideas of things that I want to do for his room, so I'll probably do a post on that sometime soon.
Other than that, I've been studying a lot for this real estate class I'm taking, surviving work by counting down the days to my maternity leave, and doing a whole lot of nothing.
This weekend we are registering at Babier R Us. I'm a little intimidated by this whole process, since I really have absolutely no idea what we will need. Usually I'm a huge planner, researcher, list-maker, etc. But, this time we are winging it. I've researched the big things, like safety features and such, but other than that, we're just going to go up and down every aisle and touch everything.
I'm also going to Oklahoma City this weekend for the John Mayer concert / my best friend's birthday!
AND we are going to look at new carpet for the bedrooms! VERY exciting, huh? I am excited because I have been begging for new carpet every since I just had to rip up the old carpet to reveal our very damaged hardwoods :) Lee told me that I shouldn't have. I never listen to anyone, I'll admit it :)
