A little update

So we have had an eventful week so far. Carl and I attended our first lamaze/birthing prep class this past monday. Some of the info was common sense but some of the info was good for us "first timers" to hear! My fave part of the class was when we sat on the exercise ball, she dimmed the lights, sprayed some lavender and we practiced relaxation/breathing techniques all while being massaged by my hubby! It was so wonderful and I told Carl that we definitely need to practice that again and frequently;) We have two more classes to attend which will include our hospital tour and some more relaxation techniques...definitely worth it ;) While Carl didn't quite share in my enthusiasm he was a good sport and will be a good "coach" during delivery!

The last few days have been rough for me. I have found myself becoming soooo exhausted and having to sit and rest more, which is really hard for me! I even had to skip the gym yesterday because I was just feeling so sluggish. I have been getting plenty of rest though, which is just what my doctor has ordered me to do, in fact his exact words were "you should be sitting on the couch with your feet up eating bon bons". I am trying! Today is my last day to see my clients for a while. It is bittersweet. I love what I do, but am ready to relax for a while and prepare for our little man! Today Tripp and I slept in until 9 am!! This is really late for us, I'm usually up by 7. Granted we were awake half the night, so I guess its ok that we slept that late. Tripp had been so very active! His movements are bigger and stronger and sometimes hurt! But i still love it. Today he was going crazy so I put on our george strait lullaby music while working on my computer and within minutes his movements started to slow down until finally he was at rest. I think it put him to sleep!! I'm thinking we might be trying that at night, since that seems to be the time that Tripp likes to play! Tripp also continues to have the most monstrous hiccups! My whole tummy actually moves each time, it's pretty funny.

It seems like our house is becoming overtaken by "baby stuff", but we love it and can't wait to use it all. My newest obsession is Tripp's jogging stroller that we just got last week. I can't wait to try it out! We even found that our carrier fits in it as well! I am a dork and have of course posted some pictures and a few of his nursery, like i said before we still have a few things to do but i couldn't resist posting a little pic!

The "jogger" with the carrier!

My new obsession:)

This little boy is stocked with clothing, these are just the outfits hanging up his drawers are quite full as well! (and yes, I do have them organized by size)

Tripp's nursery
These next couple of weeks should be fun, full of baby showers for judd and evan and a preggo massage which I can't wait for! Not to mention a growing baby tripp who will be here before we know it! Now it's time to head out to my office. We just wanted to give a little update. Hope everyone is having a blessed week! More updates coming soon...

  1. I love how his room has come along since the last time I saw it. You have been hard at work! By the way, I love your blog. I've been blogging too, using blogspot, but I didn't know that you could add such beautiful side bars. How did you do it?
