New Symptoms?

Our new symptoms even possible this late in the game? Evidently they are. Rich had to sleep on the couch last night for part of the night because I have started snoring. I knew this was a possibility down the road as he keeps getting bigger and pushing on my respiratory system, but I guess I wasn’t prepared for it yet. I apologized to Rich, but also told him it is just part of the territory. Guess he better get used to the couch.

Cletus is getting much more active. He is also moving around quite a bit. I can see him from the outside now quite often and I have even seen my badge move at work that hangs around my neck. It is a very bizarre but cool feeling.

I am starting to freak out a little bit with the amount of time that is left. We have so much to do and not a lot of time to do it in. Add to that the fact that I just can’t do what I used to be able to do and we are behind the 8 ball already. I just take comfort in the fact that not everything has to be done before he gets here. Although I would prefer it is.

My shower invites went out yesterday. Although pregnancy brain struck again and I didn’t put where I was registered. There is only 1 big baby store around here so I think everyone will know where to go and look. I am getting semi-excited about the shower. My sister and I got most of the stuff we needed this past weekend. The room is paid for too. My mom is getting on my nerves with the shower stuff. She wants to help and my sister and I don’t want her too. We don’t know how to tell her to back off without being mean about it. I tried to tell her a long time ago that Grandmother’s aren’t supposed to help with the shower, but she isn’t getting it. She just keeps talking about how she has all this free time because she doesn’t have a job and can do stuff. That’s one of the reasons we don’t want her to help. She doesn’t have a job therefore she doesn’t have as much money. Plus we want to do it our way and what I want. Rant over!!!

I am hoping that we can pick out the paint for the stars this weekend. Then maybe we can get them put up on the wall and painted sometime in the next week. I already know where I am going to get the letters from. We also found some cute wall stickers to put up as well.

The baby furniture is actually in our house!! After an hour wait we finally got it in the 2 trucks we had. I can’t wait to get it out and start organizing everything in it. I think that will make it a lot more real to see the room decorated and set up.

Tomorrow is the 1 year anniversary of finding out Autumn was gone too. Tomorrow I will be 32 weeks pregnant with Cletus. I have been looking at little girls lately when we are out and am sort of wistful of that at times. I am very thankful for our little boy that will be here soon enough, but I also miss our little girl as well.

I know what you mean about your mom and the shower planning. In the end we had to get mean with our mothers and it still didn't work out the way we wanted! So good luck on that front. Sometimes having a family that wants to be overly-involved can be stressful. Not to poo on your ambitions but I doubt you'll get everything done that you want to before little Cletus comes. You do know your due date but that doesn't mean he couldn't surprise you before that even! And lastly, what baby store is around here???

I've started snoring as well- and snorting like a pig when I'm awake. Don't ask me where that comes from...
