A little Swiss touch

For the baby’s room we decided to go with a Swiss theme. When Michael took me to Switzerland a couple of years ago I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Not only is it a beautiful country, but there is chocolate and cheese everywhere you turn! So I knew without a second thought what theme I wanted to have in the nursery.  As a gift, my parents hired the same local artist, Marcia Anuszczyk, who painted an African safari theme in Caroline’s room, to paint a Swiss mural. I have to say she did an amazing job!

Relaxing with Daddy

Today was what I would call an ideal Saturday. Michael, Grammy, and Caroline went out this morning and left me at home to relax in the peace and quiet. It felt so good to just sit and relax in our sun room. With the wind blowing and the birds singing their songs, it was a perfect couple of hours.

Then later in the afternoon, after Michael finished up all the things on my to-do list, he and Caroline then enjoyed a few moments of relaxation. I think we’re all resting up as much as we can knowing (and hoping) that baby Cotsford will soon arrive to add new excitement to our lives!

Grammy is here!

Grammy arrived a few days ago and we’re all super excited to have her here for the next couple of weeks. I know that I’m personally relieved! Already I’ve been able to rest a bit more as Grammy and Caroline play together. Last night Michael and I enjoyed some alone time at the movies and then today Grammy made us a delicious dinner.

Moving the shed

In between making sure Caroline and I are well taken care of, Michael has been busy trying to get as much done as possible around the house and in the yard. I give him a load of credit for completing the massive to-do list I handed to him a few weeks ago. You know, the “list” of everything I wanted done before the baby arrives. Now that he’s off the hook, he’s been focused on tidying up the yard. A couple weekends ago he managed to move one of our sheds. I have to say I was pretty impressed. One minute I look out the window and see the shed, the next minute it’s gone!
The paving stones was where the shed use to be

Bump Update

Here I am at 37 weeks and five days. I’m starting to feel tired of being pregnant. Actually I’m just tired in general. Today and yesterday I was able to enjoy long naps, thanks to Michael being home. I’m also tired of having to pee every five minutes and eat every two hours.  I’m still able to exercise though my ligaments and joints aren’t able to handle my usual workout. Honestly I don’t have much to complain about other than to say, “I’m ready!”  I’ve got everything done on my check list, Michael has completed his to-do list, the nursery is painted (though the little guy will be staying with us in our room), and we’ve even agreed on a name!
