sorry for the lack of posts – i’ve actually had ‘work’ to do here and we were away for the holiday weekend… we had a good visit with my sister and with eric’s family in pittsburgh – his sister announced that she, too is expecting, but not until next may… though it’s rather early, i guess they couldn’t wait to share the good news with everyone esp. since all the siblings were together on sunday… the weather was downright chilly at night (low 50s) and i was loving it – i’m so done with this hot weather! i went for a walk outside yesterday and though it was only for 35-minutes, the heat and sun really did me in…
last thursday, we had the hospital tour after work and it was quite interesting… out of around 8 couples, only one was having a girl so i thought that was pretty funny… we were able to see the 3rd floor which is where the ‘birthing rooms’ are found… there’s a bed, a couch/chair, bathroom w/shower, and all the necessary equipment for mommy & baby… the suites are on the 4th floor and again, the rooms are nothing fancy, but they are private at least and contain all the usual things… i can’t say that we saw anything that was shocking, but when you’re actually there and see nurses and doctors running around – it becomes more real that you’re having a baby (surprising, right?)… maybe all expectant parents go thru this, but i found it rather eye-opening… ( o )( o )
in other baby news – i finished painting the stripes last week and after 3 rounds of touch-ups (because i’m a perfectionist), i called it a day… the windows and floors were cleaned on monday when we got back and the rug was delivered yesterday so that was put down last night… and even though i had cleaned the mini-blinds – eric found that one was broken so i’m just going to buy new ones… so now that the room is ready – we can begin assembling the furniture… yay!
hope you’re having a good week and happy hump day!
