Last weekend we took advantage of a long weekend (Labor Day) and went home to Montana for a few days.. for 2 days to be exact. We got home at 11:30pm Friday night and left late morning Monday. It was good to be home where life slows down just a bit. We had a full day at home! Something we don't get here in MN! On Sunday, church was at EMBC (Eastern Montana Bible Camp) so I got to show Jason where I used to go to camp every summer. Afterwords, we went to another place I loved when I was growing up in Montana. Medora! We walked around the old time town and had dinner before we went to the musical. It was a fun night! Jason said he was very glad we went.
Before we went to Montana I was able to get a few fun things for baby girl's nursery. I so can't wait till we can decorate the room!! Hopefully we will be starting with our house projects soon so we can get to the baby room. We are re-carpeting our upstairs and moving our washer and dryer to the upstairs (I think I've mentioned this before). While we wait for the projects to be started and finished, our formal dining room is filling up with baby stuff! We have a dresser/changing table, decor for the walls, a cradle/bassinet that my grandpa made (and I slept in when I was a baby), and a pack 'n play! Not sure much more can fit in there between the piano and the china cabinet.
This evening we started our baby registry! Stephanie came to help, which was good because when she got there we had only registered for 2 things and we were frozen still in the bib and utensil aisle (the first aisle at Buy Buy Baby). Having this done with, or the majority of the registry done with, helps me feel a bit better.
Whether or not we will be as totally prepared mentally or have our house just perfect or our registry completely done, Baby Girl will still come when she is ready and we'll have the time of our lives meeting this little girl that's been growing inside of me. She is getting bigger and moving more and moving around things in my that I would prefer she leave alone! I'm feeling more tired, clumsy, forgetful, achey, and well.. fat. I'm so thankful for this girl and so very thankful the Lord has given us this gift of not only a baby but of pregnancy, with all it's aches and pains and uncomfortableness.
Can't wait too see and hug and hold this little one!
