Its been a while...

I'm still here. I know its been a WHILE. Honestly, I have been trying to dig to find something to blog about and I guess we are just boring right now. As for pregnancy, I am very thankful for the second trimester. MOST of the symptoms I had are gone now. I have more energy and almost zero nausea. I am trying to enjoy it while it lasts!

The main thing we have going on is nesting! We are definitely nesting. Last weekend we spent pretty much every single hour cleaning out, throwing away, going through, storing etc. in preparation for the baby's room. We have to make our dining room the nursery since we have a 3 bedroom house and they are all being used at the present. The dining room was formerly used as a playroom so you can imagine what kind of fun items there were to go through and store. 99% of the stuff in there is Brents/girls so he really had to do the majority of the work. On Monday, I painted the baby's room. No one leave me a comment saying "Are you sure you can paint?" I am very aware that back in the day they used lead based paint which was not good for anyone, but they do not make that kind of paint anymore. I even called the paint manufacturer to make sure it was safe. I also kept the front and back door opened while I did it and took frequent breaks. We are putting the hardwood floors down in 1 week. After that will just be getting the furniture in there as well as little things. Oh, and the french doors we are putting in also. We want it to still look as much like a dining room as possible for potential buyers.

This week has been fun because I got to keep Hayes!! She is such a cutie and it was great practice for me. Her big trick? Smiling. very cute.

Next weekend is my girls trip to Atlanta! I am so very excited to see my college friends AKA sorority sisters that I never get to see. We are going to see Jersey Boys on Saturday night. That will be super fun.

I go to the doctor on Tuesday for a routine exam. At this appointment I will schedule the ultrasound (2 weeks later) to find out what we are having! It is fun to have that to look forward to. I will be almost halfway done at that point.
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3: 12-14
