After this fun I went down to Hanna's room to get Joe to come up for school. I found this:
Here's a picture of me Hanna took yesterday--39 weeks pregnant. I hope this is the last one I get pregnant. We'll see. It's all just a matter of waiting around now. I have no plans of induction unless absolutely medically necessary. I have a feeling you'll see at least one more picture like this:-).
OK, I am having major difficulty getting dinners cooked lately. If anyone has any suggestions of how to get dinner cooked without the kids killing themselves, destroying whatever room(s) they are in and me totally losing it--please let me know!! I am open to ANY suggestions!! I am seriously ready to serve cold cereal or PB & J every night temporarily! I was so desperate yesterday that I closed all the doors in our upstairs hall, put up a baby gate, gave them balls and a couple of games, and made them stay there and play for about a half hour. They actually enjoyed it at first:
We are finished up in Jesse's room now. We still have to put a changing table in their, but we are not even worrying with buying a crib for a bit. He'll be in his bassinet for the first few months anyway. Sorry the walls are so bare. I doubt I'll hang pictures until the crib is in place.
Here are some pictures of Jesse's room as it is for now. Remember his bedding/theme is trains, so I got a cute Melissa and Doug train, and a couple of my favorite classic train books, The Little Engine That Could and Tootle for small decorative items. I am working on a picture frame and set of name blocks too.
Here is the "repurposed TV stand" I've been working on. I got the idea for it *here*.
That's it for our Tuesday. We got tons done. It feels good to have his room wrapped up. Now, I just can't wait to meet and hold him and have him here with us in his sweet, little bassinet. Won't be long.
