More house photos!

Moses is breaking in the new sink!
I do not remember picking this out, but I love it!
Grouting tile in the bathroom.. making silly faces at Mo...
My appliances come in next week! I cannot believe how beautiful the house is - it is so much better than I could have imagined!

Something happened.

Have I ever showed you all my brown comforter? Or my beige bed skirt? Or my beige curtains? How about the lovely brown rug I picked out for Mo's bathroom, and the lovely brown and khaki shower curtain I picked?
I have this thing with brown. I just can't help myself. (Did ya get it, Kat, did ya?? Is she a republican?) I have had my eye on the chocolate and ivory Fiesta Ware for months, and yesterday I went to buy it. I knew exactly what I wanted: a 10 place setting of the square fiesta ware, 5 chocolate and 5 ivory. But, but, but then I saw scarlet. Oh my. It was all over. And, if I'm honest, I wanted to completely do away with the chocolate and order plum instead. Jeremiah vetoed that idea, but would you just look at this:

Was it the pregnancy hormones? I have no idea but this morning I am still thrilled with decision. These are gonna look so pretty in our new house, don't you think?

We're getting to the fun stuff!

I feel like I have been waiting... and waiting.. and waiting for this phase of the house! And, at last, it has arrived. Our cabinets are going in, this makes me a very happy woman. I say it looks pretty good! We're just poor folk and picked stuff off the shelf at Lowe's, what do you think??

I cannot wait until my shiny dishwasher goes in!!
This is not the first, nor will it be the last time, my living room is a mess!
The tile is grouted. It is fun to see what I picked out eons ago!
Our new move in date is mid-November, and we are just so darn excited to move into this place!

Updates on #1 and #2.

I have a #1 and a #2, there is something about that that just makes me smile. It's starting to settle in... I am really pregnant. I am really going to have another little baby. It's not so overwhelming anymore. I'm thrilled!
First of all, Moses had a well baby check up. It was supposed to be at 9 months, but we have to drive to Durango for our appointments so the pediatrician said I could put it off for a month so I could do my ultrasound and prenatal appointment on the same day. Moses is doing great! He weighed in at 19 pounds 12oz, which put him in the 26th percentile. I know the kid looks like a chunk in the pictures I post here, but he's really not. The doctor's not worried at all, he is gaining weight at a good rate. They did take an iron test, and I am really wondering what the results will be. He eats very high quality solids, but the mainstay of his diet is still milk at this point and he has very little interest in it most days. Sometimes only drinking 2oz or so per feeding. Again, the doctor's not worried, but it does concern me a bit when he won't eat.
Also. The kid is mobile. He is crawling and into everything! Everyday he gets a bit bolder. I think as part of that developmental step naps and bedtime have become a struggle. We have struggled with naps before but bedtime has always been a breeze around here, this is new territory for sure! That said, anytime we travel or when Mo gets sick (all 3 of us have a cold right now) it seems like I have re-teach Mo how to sleep. It is a challenge, but it's worth it!
BUT everyday has been so much fun, I enjoy spending the days with him so much, he is a crack up!
THE MASS IS GONE!! Thank you, Lord! The baby is healthy and they bumped up my due date a few days, May 6th is the new due date and that makes me just under 11 weeks pregnant. I am so, so close to being out of the first trimester!
Here is the little peanut:
This is funny.. my midwife said that she recommends that I don't pick up Moses. Ba ha ha ha!!
AND, another wonderful thing to report is that I have been having good days! As of today I haven't been sick since SUNDAY! There have been close calls, but I am happy to say that I really am feeling better most of the time. I have even been able to keep down some healthy food. I've been trying to have Ezekiel bread with Laughing Cow spread and avocado for breakfast every morning. It gets a ton of nutrition in first thing and I feel good about that. I have even been able to keep down an occasional salad. Next on my agenda: exercise! I have become a pudgy little slug laying on the couch and I am itching to get back out and RUN! I can't wait!

Things are happening!

There is so much going on here, but I have had so little energy lately that updates will be slow in coming! I don't think I've even put pictures up from our trip to Albuquerque! We just got back from a week in Prescott, AZ and a trip to the Grand Canyon, too! Please forgive me, family, for the lack of Mo photos, but until this morning sickness gets more manageable the updates may be few and far between.
Here is a photo of Jeremiah and the Mo man hanging out at the cabin!

Moses has a well baby check up tomorrow and I have an ultrasound and an appointment with my midwives to check on the placental mass. I will try, try, try to post an update when we get home!
