This week baby boy's lungs are mature. It's another milestone!
When Dre and I got back from the cottage, we went shopping for the rest of the baby furniture at IKEA. We have a brand new IKEA in town and it's huge. I wanted to look at everything, but since Dre hates IKEA he kept trying to get me to look faster. We found the dresser and bookcase for the baby's room. We also found the curtains and a lamp for the room. I'm not sure that the lamp will work, but I'm going to give it a few days before I decide for sure. I'll post picture of the room once Dre and I have time to organize all the baby stuff. For now, it's kind of all stacked together...it makes the room look like it got hit by a hurricane.
On New Year's Eve, we had dinner with my SIL so we could give them their Christmas gifts since we didn't see them on Christmas. The nephews seemed happy enough with their gifts which was a huge relief since we had a really hard time getting those gifts. After that, we went to our friends' house for the countdown celebration to a New Year. It's a good thing we decided to go too because every single other person that was supposed to be there cancelled at the last minute. That would have been a real bummer for the hosts. We had a great time even though it was just the 4 of us. We watched the ball drop in Time Square in New York on TV and toasted with champagne (sparkling juice for me) the arrival of 2012.
Today was my first day back at work and since I'm now training my replacement it looks like I'll have too much to do to keep up with this blog. Yes, I usually do blog in my free time at work so now I'll have to try to write more often from home. I'm a big procrastinator so I really have to motivate myself to do it.
While I was at work, Dre installed the car seat in the car. Wheeee! It's exciting and terrifying at the same time. It seems like we're getting that much closer, but at the same time it's still far away. We're getting the installation checked by some volunteers for our local association for S.E.A.T.S for kids on Saturday which is why we installed the car seat now. The next date they had was Feb. 5th and I thought that was cutting it really close since my due date in Feb. 10th!
Here’s my picture this week. I'm getting huge!
