The week in review

We had a lot going on this week and not much of it was Christmas-related. Let's see if I can remember everything...

First, we said goodbye to the 1972 linoleum in the kitchen and laundry room. We replaced it with the same wood laminate that we installed in the dining room and entry way.

We also replaced the royal blue carpet in Cheeto's nursery with some more eye-appealing, kid-friendly carpet.

Next on our "to do" list is purchasing the nursery furniture. Then we can start getting organized and preparing the room for our little Cheeto.

This week, we also finished our childbirth classes. So I guess the medical community thinks we're ready to have a baby! Even though the classes made me more nervous and scared, we really did learn a lot and feel a little more prepared for this whole thing. I must say I'm glad that I wasn't too shocked or surprised during the classes. I know a lot about pregnancy and labor and delivery, thanks to my line of work. We'll just see how much that knowledge translates into action during the birth process!

And let me say right now how grateful I am to have such a loving, supportive and encouraging husband. I was appalled at the childish and immature comments coming from many of the fathers in our classes. I know that Chris will be a wonderful help to both me and the baby. I'm so glad we're doing all of this together!

And finally...tomorrow I will be 31 weeks. So here's my 30-week picture:

Cheeto is quickly outgrowing this tank top. I hope it will last just a few more weeks!
