This weekend I reached a milestone. I’m now at 25 weeks, which officially makes me 6 months pregnant! I feel so blessed that I’ve made it this far. I am so glad that God is continuing to protect our child and watch over his health as he grows in the womb. Our planning for the baby continues slowly. We have set up all of our prenatal classes which consist of Baby Essentials, Childbirth Preparation, Infant CPR, Carseat Safty, Breastfeeding Class for Couples, Daddy Boot Camp, Hospital Orientation, and Pediatrician meeting.
Whew…, we’ll be busy for the next two months on the weekends with those clasees. I’m really looking forward to them. I remember some things from when my little brother was born (I was 12 at the time), but it’s been a long time since then.
We also have to setup our baby registry. I have completed the one online from The Natural Mothering Shop where they have a wonderful selection of diaper covers and cloth diaper service options for purchase as well as other organic baby items. We plan to register at Babies R Us too. I’m definately going to take advantage of a friend of mine’s offer to help me since I have no clue what to get let alone the quantity of what to get.
We’ve revamped the “task” list to include many many more seemingly impossible tasks prior to when baby Parker comes. Some are worse than others, but poor Dan, I think he’s worn out thinking about it. That mixed with all the prenatal classes is a lot to think about when you travel as much as he does. He’s such a great husband and I’m thankful that I have his support through all of this. I certainly wouldn’t be the person that I am today without him. I love you P- Bear! (ok, I’ve thoroughly embarrased him now for sure)We’re planning to paint the baby’s room in the next couple of weeks or so. We decided on a soft blue No-VOC paint that I think will work great. We’re also still waiting for our glider to come in that we ordered. Other than that and the painting, I think we’re pretty squared away with the major room items. There are a few pieces of artwork that I’d like to get, but we’re going to wait to see if we can swing it or not.
For now, I’m just going to try to enjoy my last month in my second trimester before all the FUN begins in my last trimester! (can you sense my sarcasim!!)
