Our Last DINK Christmas

Ben and I went out last Friday for my company christmas party - thought I'd include a shot on the blog of us all dressed up! Sorry Ben for using the picture where your head is cut out - this is the one I looked cutest in ;) When you have your own blog you can choose which pictures you want to put up.

Please note how handsome Ben looks in his sweater vest... shouldn't hear wear this all the time?

Watching her grow!! 28 weeks, 7 months

I'm now officially in my third trimester! Only 12 weeks left, but I'm hoping those 12 weeks go slow! Fortunately, I've really enjoyed carrying around our little girl, so that has made pregnancy go quite smoothly. I also still feel like we have tons to do to prepare for her arrival, all these thoughts keep running through my mind: when are we going to paint the nursery? are we financially ready for this? we don't have a car seat or mattress yet! how many date nights can Ben and I fit in (an afford) before the baby comes? And so on, and so on...

Every once in a while I just need to take a deep breath!

Here are the latest pics of my belly (to see how much I've grown, just click the belly tag at the bottom of my post and you can see all of my belly pictures from week 14 on).

(two things to note in this picture, that are different than all of our other pictures: 1. Ben surprised me last night with the final piece to our bedroom suite - my night stand! 2. Somebody had an accident on our comforter last weekend so we are borrowing the guest room comforter unitl ours is done being cleaned... I won't name any names, but let's just say it wasn't Ben or I)

26 Week Belly

Ok - these are more like 26.5 week belly pictures, but life got away from me for a couple days! Belly is growing week by week, no real complaints other than some major back pain this week. I don't think it's necessarily from the extra belly I am carrying, but just from sleeping wrong or having bad posture at work. I just wish I could take some heavy muscle relaxers or at least have a glass of wine right now... Aspirin just doesn't have enough kick.

It's funny, I never would have thought it, but I've realized how many drugs my body is reliant on- now that I can't have them... caffeine, ibuprofen, cigarettes... ok, just kidding about the cigarettes, but still - I'd love a nice dose of Advil right now.

Setting Up The Nursery

We are finally making some movement on the nursery! Grandma/Grandpa Wehner got us a gift card to Babies R Us recently, so after what seemed like many hours of research and shopping we finally picked out a crib for little Olive.

After moving all of the guest room furniture into the study, Ben and I set up the baby's crib last week. While there is still a lot more to do (paint, decorate, get supplies), I must admit that it felt like a huge relief to have one thing done. March 12th does seem far away, but with the holidays, I know it is going to sneak up on us.

Olive also got her first baby blanket from Grandma Sapp (shown above on the crib) a couple weeks ago, can't wait to cuddle her up in it at night. Grandparents are amazing, aren't they?!?!
