Get Ready!

We have been very busy getting ready for Colton's arrival. Sydney attended a Sibling class at Texas Women's Hospital where she learned how to diaper, swaddle and hold a baby. She enjoyed the class and earned a certificate and a Big Sister T-shirt.

Bret cleared out our spare room and painted it on Saturday. We put the crib together today and arranged the furniture. We are using the same crib, changing table and glider that we used with Sydney. We are having the glider cushions recovered. His room is not finished but here are some pictures of it before and after!

The Third Trimester!

As of today, I am officially in the 3rd trimester at 27 weeks, or month number 7. The pregnancy is going well with no complications or concerns. I am feeling good but definitely notice I am pregnant now. Bret is giving me the weekly progesterone injections without any problems. We will do those through week number 34. We recently had to start giving some injections to one of our dogs and Bret is doing that as well. In the past, I would have had to handle something "medical" like that, but Bret is getting into giving shots! We are getting very excited and it is time to start getting Colton's room together. I ordered his bedding several weeks ago and it came in this week. We don't have the room painted or the crib set up yet. That is on the list for next weekend, as football is slowing down and winding up. Here is a photo of the bedding, I will post more pictures after the room is painted and the crib is set up. Have a great weekend!
