So Derek and I FINALLY have a closing date set in stone for our house. We are going in on Tuesday the 19th to get everything signed and all that good stuff.

We've decided that we are going to replace the carpeting that is in the house with some new carpet since there are a few spots that need to be replaced anyway. Derek and his friend Nate are going to do the job. Tuesday Derek is going to rip up the carpet and sometime during the week the two of them will put down the carpets. This means long nights and no sleep for Derek. Haha.

After the carpets are put down we get to start moving everything in. YAY!

We don't have much to move in since we went from a two bedroom apt to a 4 bedroom house. So we are saving up for stuff to fill it. God knows Stratton's room is going to be full. That kid has EVERYTHING! Haha. Thanks to his awesome family. I can't wait to start putting his room together. We are doing a jungle theme in his room. He's going to have big leaves and animals and all kinds of jungley stuff in there. I hope he likes it. I have a few years till he can verbalize if he does or not. :)

As for the little guy he is doing well. I've been having Braxon Hicks the last 4-5 days which has worn me out and made me really sore. I called the Dr about them because I had them constantly (not consistently though) for 2 days. He assured me that it was normal and just make sure I keep my feet up and drink LOTS of water. So the little guy is good. Yesterday I went in to the Doc and had the usual pee test, weight check, and blood pressure exam. Everything was fine. Just a little dehydrated.

I go back in two weeks to get checked for Step B. After that it's one visit a week until D day! YAY!

Everyone get excited!
