Yesterday we did some major work on the baby's room. Andrew and his dad removed all the exercise equipment and cleaned out the closet. I washed all the clothes and linens and put them in place, Andrew's mom did some major work in getting things generally clean, and we went shopping for all the things we needed for the projects like new curtains, mini-blinds, crib repair, lightbulb changing, and mobile setup. I even exchanged some duplicate gifts for a totally awesome gym mat. But how did I spend over $100 on laundry baskets, hardware, curtains, and batteries?
Lena the sphynx is not sure what's happening. The baby's room was her room when we first got her, before we let her have the run of the house. She hasn't been allowed in there for a couple of years now, so I'm not sure she remembers it, but she has been acting agitated with all the comings and goings around here, running all over the house, getting into things (like eating Rainbow Bright's hair), and generally demanding attention. I let her come in and explore while I was putting away laundry, which turned out to be a bad idea. She somehow squeezed into the drawer under the crib, where I had put all the freshly-washed blankets, and wouldn't come out until I pulled the drawer out and poked her with a hanger. This wouldn't be so bad, except that she gets a bath every Saturday and this happened on Friday night. I'm still not sure how she'll react to a baby moving in. I think they'll have loads of fun when Babby is older and can chase her around, which is Lena's favorite game, but who knows? For now, she will have to stay out of Babby's room because she loves to snuggle people and a little warm baby could be too great of a temptation. Perhaps we will get a screen door or a squirt gun for Babby's room.
As for pregnancy itself, I am so over it. Babby, you have a little less than a month. Get ready!
