I have reached the halfway point! Exciting and scary all at once!
It's been a fairly busy week. We took a trip with some friends to Nashville to check out some baby stuff.
And we got a crib! After putting it together, I originally wanted to keep the door shut to keep the cats out. Zorro loves to chew on strings, and Pearl likes to chew on plastic. And they both love to get on and crawl into things. But I was working on decorations for her room and let them wander around while I was in there. I looked up after awhile and this is what I saw:
My first babies.
It was exciting to see the crib in the empty room; once it was put together we stepped back to look at it in silence.
Our baby will go in there!
Seeing the crib makes I feel much more real!
They already love this room. So I've decided to only keep the door shut when I have things laying out that I don't want them getting into.
I had a doctor's appointment a few days ago; Ava and mommy are both doing well! I occasionally have a rapid heart beat, and my doctor said not to worry about it too much unless it is accompanied by dizziness or shortness of breath, which I have had neither of. The first time it happened it kinda freaked me out - I wasn't doing anything but sitting and I could feel my heart pounding in my chest! It's working hard with the extra blood in my body, I guess!
We came home to Kansas this weekend for some baby showers. I am happy we were able to travel home before I got big and uncomfortable, especially since back aches have started. 8 hours in a car each way is plenty for me!
