Friday, September 5, 2008 has pulled me in too.

Baby News and Moving In

So I'm at a little over 35 weeks as of today. How exciting! I went to the Dr yesterday and he checked my cervix and said I was dialated to 1cm. Which isn't much but it's something right? He also said that I could wind up going a week early. Other than that he said everything looks good. I have a dr. apt. every week now until Stratton gets here which means I have to get a pelvic exam every week now too. : (

Earlier this week Mona and I went shopping and got Stratton a dresser and a changing table. My friend Sarah Robinson came over and helped me put the dresser together and Bill helped me with the changing table. Everything looks so cute and matching. Derek and my dad put the crib that Beth gave us together last night. It looks so great with all the bedding in it.

So this weekend (weather permitting) we are moving in EVERYTHING!
Couches, clothes, dishes, EVERYTHING!

I'm going to miss staying with Bill and Mona but it will be nice to have our own place. The worst part is that I'm going to have to start cooking again. :( Derek is REALLY going to hate that.
Mona and Bill have been SO great to us. We owe them BIG TIME.

Other than that nothing else big is going on.

If anyone would like to help we are moving everything on Saturday.

Moving In.....Well Sorta.

Slowly but surely Derek and I are getting things put into the new house. We had a small get together with one of my friends and her boyfriend and one of their friends they met at camp. It started out great. The boys got the DVD holder together AND a bookshelf. At that point they probably should have stopped because it was like 2 in the morning. BUT, of course boys are hard headed and HAD to put the third piece together. Bad idea. We now have the most haggard looking t.v. stand in Southeast Missouri. But it's going down stairs so like they say "out of sight out of mind." Right?

Here are some pics from that night.

The start of a LONG night. Derek and Alex getting ready to tackle the book shelf.

This is Lauren and Andy their friend they met at camp this summer. He's from London and stuck in the U.S. for now because the airline he bought his ticket through went bankrupt. So he's here till he can get another ticket.

The first piece of furniture DONE! Don't ask why but they wanted to show the back of it because that's were most of the work went into it. Haha. Boys.

Second Project, The DVD shelf and a very messy living room.

Andy kept saying that this project was like war. You have the british kid yelling out directions and the american guys do all the work. And that's pretty much all he did all night was tell them what to do.

35 Weeks Pregnant and ready to go to bed.

The large trash pile that was left in our planter on our porch. We took out the planter and this was what was left over. There was even a turtle shell in there. Yuck.

Starting on the 3rd project that shouldn't have even been touched. This was taken at floor level because I was sleeping on the floor at this point. Needless to say I was sore when I woke up at 4:30 to go home!!!!

Our cute upstairs bathroom. The only room in the house that is pretty much done. It's really all I could do since there's no heavy lifting involved in this room. I think it tured out ok.
