Head Down!

At my 32-week appointment yesterday, we found out that Baby W. is officially head down and ready to go! :-) Our OB did say, though, that she's occasionally been wrong about baby's being head down -- and laughingly said that some babies have pretty firm bottoms! :-)

Matt and I will hopefully close on our house Friday, which means Friday night will be our first night in our first house! :-) We're very excited. Baby W.'s room will be the first room painted. :-)

A Pain in the...

BACK!!! Argh! About 3 days ago I awoke to horrendous back pain in the middle of the night, and it hasn't gone away since then! :/ It's worse when I sit for a long period of time, or when I sleep. I'm going to try to pick up a heating pad tomorrow to see if that will help. :/

Matt bought me a body pillow yesterday, though, and that was a miracle to sleep with! SOO Much better!! I highly recommend it to other pregnant women!

Off to do school work!

97 Days!!

So, my computer counts down the days until my EDD, and I just saw that it's now saying 97 days! I remember when I was counting down days until our wedding, I was so excited to reach 2-digits. Now, I'm excited, but when I read "97 days" it causes a small amount of panic, too! Eek! Only 97 more days until we'll meet, have met, or be close to meeting Baby W. (who is still name-less!)

Team Blue!

So, we found out last Friday that we joined Team Blue! It's a boy for us!

Here's a picture taken at the doctor's office, right after we found out it's a boy! And, here's one of the first shirts I bought for The Boy. Isn't it adorable? He'll look so much like his Daddy!

Middle-of-the-Night Musings

1. After not having a firecall in almost a month, we were awakened to the pager buzzing at 1:30 in the morning. Matt rushed around the house trying to find clothes, put contacts in, etc, while I tried to wake up enough to help him. I found his thermals for him, considering the wind chill is
-2 out right now!

I've been surfing the web and listening to the scanner for the past hour-and-a-half, and just heard that the department is back now. Hopefully he'll be home soon.

2. A new Wal-Mart opened here recently, and presumably to attract business, their gas prices are LOW. We filled up for $1.93 and would've gotten 5 cents of that if we had a Wal-Mart card. (Whatever that is). We almost bought a gas can just to fill up! Haven't seen it under 2 bucks recently.

3. Lizzie now has all of her puppy shots! Yay! Thanks to a super sweet, semi-retired vet who's in the office in the mornings just because he loves it. :-)

Okay, hopefully the pager will stay silent for the rest of the night...Sleep Well!

You Belong in Rome

You're a big city girl with a small town heart
Which is why you're attracted to the romance of Rome
Strolling down picture perfect streets, cappuccino in hand
And gorgeous Italian men - could life get any better?

What City Do You Belong In?

I found this fun quiz about what city should I live in, so I thought it would be fun to post! I like their analysis: "You're a big city girl with a small town heart." :-)

What a Cutie!

When Lizzie's really listening to or watching something, her right ear stands up. Cute!

Visits With Old Friends...

We left this past Monday to visit our friends Mike & Rachel and their son Jonathan. They live north of Chicago and are preparing to leave for Thailand to be missionaries. (They're hoping to leave next fall). So, we're trying to squeeze in as many visits with them as possible before they leave.

We hadn't seen their son, Jonathan, since he was about a month old, so it was a lot of fun to play with him!! Here he is in his special fireman outfit worn just for Matt.

Back in the Saddle Again!

Or, should I say, back on the other side of the desk again!

Monday I'll start a very part-time Spanish teaching position at a local Christian school. (And in local, I mean local: it's about 3 minutes from our house!) It's one-class-a-day, 4-days-a-week, and I'm through-the-roof excited! It feels great to break out my Spanish supplies again: lesson planning, here I come!

I'll keep you posted on how it goes! I'm trying to be a better blogger!
