A month to go!

My post won't be as entertaining as Joel's, but I figured I'd give an update. We're still waiting on internet, but we're going to be able to get it for free, so it's been worth it. We really ought to have it any day now.

I'm not doing anything too exciting with my days. Basically just preparing for Kaylee. I can't wait! The nursery is coming along. I'm trying to be frugal with my decorating and it's actually been quite entertaining for me. I'm learning how to sew and have made a crib skirt from a pattern and 2 basket type things without a pattern (hard to explain... I'll put up pictures sometime). I've also painted some pictures and little wooden critters. The colors are brown and turquoise with a splash of pink. And as of now the theme is little critters (turtles, butterflies, snails, fireflies, etc.).

I've also been reading books to prepare for delivery and bringing Kaylee home. I'm halfway through a DVD called "The Baby Whisperer." I'm really liking it. I'm going to make Joel watch it too because it has ways of doing things that I hadn't heard of (like a different way of burping your baby).

I'm pretty big. Once we get our internet I'll post a picture (I'm at my in-laws right now). I'm feeling pretty well. I'm just having all the usual aches and pains that come with being 8 months pregnant. The heartburn is awful, but I'm quite blessed with how smoothly everything has been going so far.

Anyway, things are good. Joel is doing well at work. I'm loving his work schedule because it means we have every evening and weekend together (we didn't have that luxury while he was doing security). Well, I hope everyone is doing well. Let's all hope we get internet soon because I miss chatting online with everyone.

I miss you being online more too. MC has gotten weird though. Not as fun as it used to be....every once in awhile there will be a decent topic.
I'm so excited for Kaylee to get here!!! Sounds like you're having fun getting things ready!

i don't even believe that you are fat or have a cute nursery. you'd better post pictures, otherwise i'll just assume it's all made up;)

I can't believe your fat! I want to see pictures! Hopefully we will be able to move up there, but with us, you just never know if we'll move to Bountiful or Kentucky (We've thought about it). Can't wait to see little Kaylee!

I feel so bad for us both! There are already days when I'm so uncomfortable I don't think I can make it another 2 months and you're 3 weeks ahead of me! It'll all be over soon though and we'll get to see how worth it it is!
