Look how fat!

I've finally got a picture up! We just took this today, so this is a picture of me just over 8 months. My belly is HUGE!


We have a new pet. His name is Muffy. Muffy is a mouse. If you come visit us today you'll see the fancy schmancy mouse trap Joel set up for him. The thing about Muffy is, even though he's an uninvited pet he's super cute! We're wanting to catch him and release him in a far away field rather than kill him. It's so cute when we chase him around and he does a sharp turn and slips on the linoleum. And how he peeks his head around the corner to watch us.

Joel may have caught him already... we're not sure. There are mouse prints in the flour we put right outside its hole, but we don't know if they came from Muffy or another mouse before Joel closed the hole up with a tin can lid and duct tape. Hopefully it was Muffy and (as cute as he was) we've seen the last of him.

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.
