We are now at 32 weeks, and so glad to be that far along, espcially after all of the stress and health issues we experianced back in November. Each week that progresses gets us closer and closer to having our little son in our arms! The last trimester really is so hard, the impatience kills! Fortunatly we have a nursery to prepare and that keeps us at least a little bit busier, keeping our minds on decorating for just a bit. Matthew's room was closest to ours, Michael's is the smallest and Cody's the largest. Matthew was originaly going to switch rooms and bunk with Cody but Michael and Cody decided it would be more fun to share again as the older boys, where they can stay up later, reading and what not, than having Cody shareing with Matty. So while they were away at their Dad's for the holidays we went about switching all their toys and furniture around. Michael moved into Cody's room with the bunk beds and Matty moved into Michael's smaller room, leaving the room next to ours for the nursery.
We had to start from scratch getting baby things together. A few years ago, during a military move, I gave all of our baby furniture and clothes away to a young mover whose girlfriend was going to be having a baby any day, and they seemed worse off than I was at the time, and not planning to have any more kids, I thought, "Hey, I'm decluttering and helping others out in the process"......that however means that with this baby, we've had to start all over! OUCH. $$$.
As of the 1st of January we ran out and bought a crib, the mattress, the playpen/bassinet (the bassinet we wanted was $150, the playpen/bassinet combo was $130...Two for one! ) and the Stroller/carseat combo. Then over the last few weeks have hung curtians, put down a rug and started some craft projects to add to decor.
It's been pretty fun.
Also seeing the kids faces on our belated Christmas when we showed them Aidan's room and their newly remodeled rooms.
(Don't mind the large peice of couch standing up in the corner of the boy's room..lol Matt refused to let me try and help move it out to the trash, as it's got some broken boards, so it had to stay there until a friend came over to help vamoose it, and ignore Cody's unmade bed.....untidy beds drive me CRAZY!)
