So about this bed rest thing... Yes, I'm still technically on it and most likely will not be taken off of it but I must say that I haven't really been following doctors orders where this is concerned. As long as my BP is under control, I have no other preeclamptic symptoms, and I'm feeling great, I see no reason to sit around and do nothing. So it's back to our house projects! A couple of you have requested to see some of our progress. While we have a ways to go here is what we're working on...
First - The Basement. Dad and John have been working on creating an office for us downstairs. It's going to be great!
Aside from the basement, we will be making Aaron a new room where the old office was. This is the border we have picked out. As you may have guessed, this will be a Jeep themed room and John could not be more excited to get started on it!
Of course that means Aaron's old room will soon be Ethans and we have some minor plans for it but haven't started yet. It will be similar but instead of Noah's Arc, we are going with a teddy bear theme. For now, he has a temporary "dresser" set up in our bedroom and we'll use the Pack N Play for him to sleep in.
Then there is the living room. Piece by piece we are trying to make it more homey since taking our house off the market. So far we've added curtains (this is before I got the wrinkles out), put up my wall words that I got for Christmas, and put in a new couch (Thanks Chelsee and Jay!).
It's coming along slowly but surely. Perhaps one of the biggest jobs is in the garage. I'll spare you a picture - just take my word for it, it's full of stuff to go through and either give away, sell, or pitch.
These won't all be done before Ethan gets here - in fact it will probably be late spring before everything gets finished!! I promise I'm not over-doing it for all those worry-worts out there. John is doing most of the work! He keeps telling me I'm making the honey-do list longer even as he's finishing up something. I can't help it! I have an extreme case of nesting going on!
