Finch continues to be an awesome wife and partner. I put together a "Honey-Do" list for her and one for me of tasks to accomplish before the babies arrive - she has knocked off about 6 or 7 items already!!! Rock star! We bought 2 Espresso Storage Cubicles today which we are going to use instead of a dresser. Each one holds 6 cubes/baskets and we are going to put labels on each one with for their clothes. We want to fit a Glider in the corner and a large piece of furniture on the other wall will crowd the glider. The nursery is still a work in progress. We go this Saturday for our Child Birth Education Class and to tour the Mother/Baby Unit at the hospital - can't wait! I need to start preparing ahead of time for my leave from work - I have a "to-do" list there of stuff that I don't want to leave up in the air and grant applications and reports that will be do while I'm out. I am going to try my best to do them ahead of time. I will at least make a good faith effort. haha. Thankfully my nausea has mostly gone away - the reflux remains but Zantac helps a lot too. I also bought 2 of the best pregnancy items so far - the Bobby Belly Wedge and a generic triangle wedge for my back. LOVE them!!!! They make sleeping so much easier. We don't have room for a big body pillow and they are light and portable. I take one and put behind my back in the car and then use in on my desk chair at work. We are also planning for our Baby Moon in October - not sure where we are headed yet but looking at places within 3 hours from home for some R&R together.
