He keeps growing

...sometimes I wonder what our little boy will look like...
...okay...I wonder a lot...
:)
I love Jeff. He's such a wonderful friend and husband.
Here I am at 28.5 weeks...

I would give it to you in months, but it's so dang confusing!!

If you figure pregnancy is a 40 week gestational period, and there's about 4 weeks per month, you'd be 10 months pregnant, not 9 months...

My due date is November 12...so from August 12 I was 3 months away from my due date, which makes me 6 months...but 28 weeks divided by 4 is 7 months....

So I guess for those of you who are wondering...I'm between 6 and 7 months pregnant.

...yeah...

I am so blessed.

Oh PS, don't you love my shirt!? My mom made it for me and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! Thanks Mom!

The Nursery

So we've started on the nursery...it's not completely finished, but give me time...
Here's the room all taped up...kind of a 'before' shot...even though the real 'before' shot was when the room was full of boxes and our ironing board...

Here's Jeff shaking up the one of the paint cans...
I'm pretty sure he did most all of the work, and I'm so grateful he's a handyman. I helped tape the room...actually...I just taped over the electric outlets. Hahaha, Jeff and his brother Matt did the rest of the taping. Oh yeah! I put down the plastic on the floor. That was my contribution. And I picked out the paint colors.

...Jeff opening up a can of paint...

I didn't get any shots of Jeff in the process of painting because I was asleep the whole time...the whole 4 or 5 hours it took him...
Oops.
He did a really good job though...thanks sweetheart!
It's hard to see the colors very well because the lighting in the room isn't all that great...plus they're pastel colors...
Now, like I said it's not completely finished...we're still planning on putting white chair railing around the room where the white line separates the yellow and green...and then I'm planning on decorating with classic pooh...

And here's Jeff another night putting up the crib...
Once again, all him...
I...supervised...
There were a ton of pieces...

And here's the finished product!! It's really nice...not only is it a crib, but there's a changing table, a clothes hamper, shelves, and a storage drawer underneath...
Now I get to start decorating!!

Jeff just helped me bake chocolate chip cookies...his idea...
SO CUTE.
I love him. And his spontaneousness.

Merlin, Mim, and Rascal

I'd like to introduce you to my kittens...
This is Merlin. The white lady is Mim.

They have wizard names from the movie The Sword and the Stone.
The reason: they're polydactyl cats--which means they have extra toes...back in medival times they were considered witches cats.
(Mim has two extra toes on her front paws, Merlin has three extra on his front paws and one extra on his hind paws)

Oh, and let's not forget our big baby, Rascal. He'd be the one lounging in the back...
I know lots of people don't like cats, but I don't understand why...
They're HILARIOUS.
And so low-maitenance.
And they puuuuuuurrrrr...
And they don't smell.
Oh how I love my little kitties...
(And so does Jeff)

Hahahaha!
