We are getting some new neighbors in a couple of days, so we decided to get a fence and plant a tree and some tall bushes. Neighborly, huh?
No, really, we have just been in the mood for some home improvement projects (nesting, perhaps?).
This weekend Ben's parents came to town to bring the kids gifts (even the unborn one) and install a couple of kid room ceiling fans.
Here's the baby's-- pretty basic, but it matches the rest of our fixtures perfectly
Here's H and J's, which matches nothing in the house except their room:
Ben really did plant some tall bushes today-- or they will be tall someday
Mainly to stop the kids from killing themselves on the rock walls and to stop himself from having to mow the grass there
Also to block all of our windows because we are, as I mentioned, neighborly
Which is why we planted this tree that will hopefully block our yard someday
Seriously, how cute is this little fence
with its cute little gate? (it has 2 cute little gates, but I only took a picture of 1 because, I mean, a gate is a gate)
Home improvements aside, I feel like shit today. So big. SO unwieldy. So needing to pee all the time because there is a giant person on my bladder (he's actually probably less than 7 pounds, but still). My back hurts like you would not believe. And still. No contractions. No other labor signs. I think I might set a new length-of-gestation record. Harry was already like 4 days old by now.
I just want to see him and kiss him and never sleep again because of him.
I ordered some really cute stickers to put on his onesies every month so I don't have to make my monthly signs. Ben's mom bought him an awesome bouncy chair. I used our anniversary gift card from Bomma and Jack to buy a new Vera Bradley diaper bag (Happy anniversary, Ben. Also, mine is in Symphony in Hue, but I cannot get that color to link for some reason ). We are so, so ready for our little guy. (All I need is a ready-made Hallmark scrapbook baby book like I had for H and J and that's it, I swear. Then we'll really, really be ready. I am going to Hallmark first thing tomorrow morning.)
