Okay, only time for a quick post... I'm exhausted.  First, here is the 32 week belly picture (sorry we missed last week... I kept forgetting until Wednesday, then I went to have Nick take one Wednesday and the battery on the camera was dead, so I figured that meant we weren't supposed to do a picture last week.)  I had a doctor's appointment today.  She said I was doing great.  Weight gain is good, blood pressure is good and size is good, so I guess that means I'm good. :)  She also said she has a feeling this baby is going to be a girl (even though the heartbeat is low) so I guess we'll just have to wait and see! :)  Only 8 more weeks!

We went and picked up the crib and rocking chair this weekend.  We got the crib put together, but haven't had time to do the chair.  I guess that will go on next weekend's agenda.   Here is a quick sneak-peek at the nursery... All you get to see is the bed and the walls around it because, well, those are the only things I could get in the picture while trying to 
stand between all the other junk that needs to be moved out of the way!!  There's still a lot to do in there, but I'm getting it done, slowly.  I have almost all the clothes washed now and all the blankets and toys are clean, so I guess I'm a little further ahead than I was last week!  Oh - we also ordered ourselves a bedroom set (finally), so I was able to take the dresser that we were using in our room and put it in the baby's room to free up a bunch of space for books and whatnot.  Our bedroom set is scheduled to arrive this saturday!! I can't wait! :)  We got a really good deal on it, so we were able to get an armoire for the living room too.  So excited! :)

Oh - by the way, this crib is really freaking huge... sorry about jumping  all over the place, but I was just looking at this picture again and thought I'd mention that! :)  It's super nice though!  The only bummer is that I thought you could put the changing table at the other end b/c that's where I wanted it, but it turns out it only works at the other end... So, I guess I'm not allowed to get any bigger or I won't be able to get to the things on the shelves of the changing table!!  Hmmmm... this is turning into a long post, so i guess I'll just keep going.  I'm really starting to get to the tired phase.  I've been completely exhausted for about 2 or 3 weeks now.  This Little One likes to keep me up all night as does his/her father with his snoring!  So, I've been tired, but I know that's normal for the first and third trimesters, so I guess I'm right on target!

Well, I guess that's about all there is that's new...  I'm sure I'll think of more later, but for now, that's all I've got.  Here are just a couple pics of my boys behaving themselves tonight.  They are so good sometimes. :)  Oh - Jake goes in for his "surgery" Friday, so next week we should have some interesting stories about how we managed to keep the two of them calm so as not to disturb Jake's stitches...  oh how I am not looking forward to that!
P.S. Sorry about the crappy formatting on this post... too tired to try to fix it.  Good night all!

Okay my dear one, You look Great ! This is so exciting, I always love new babies and old babies. The crib does look big, but it is the focus of your picture, it's a step bed, if I remember correctly. It will be a safe place for such a precious gift. Enjoy your new things now, it will be a while before it will be about you and Nick again. Love Aunt Mary

Ah, you think you are tired now? Wait until he/she comes. Then you will be begging Nick to "babysit" for a few hours so you can get some sleep. I wonder why when Moms are taking care of the baby it's just "taking care of the baby" but when Dads are its called babysitting. Oh well. You are getting so close. Hopefully you make it farther than us. Any names picked out yet? (Had to ask because I HATED it when people asked me.)

Hi Jen & Nick,
I haven't check this in a while, & Harold is trying to show me how to sent a message.
Your belly is about as big as mine now:)
Love Mom & Harold

Ah you are so close! I know I already commented but I have to again. I was just talking to Keith about how I can convince you to make Cameron a little diaper bag like you made for yours... LOL He was telling me how much craft stuff you have, which he knows because he has had to move it all...? Oh, well. Hopefully we will all get together again in the future.
