He Did It!

After twenty-two long months, Bill has finished his MBA! I could write a long gushy post about how proud I am of him because I know he did it for us and our growing family, etc. but I'll spare you. :) Instead, here is a picture of Bill celebrating with some presents and some champagne.

The Countdown Update

Thirty Days until my Due Date! Yikes. And I feel like we still have so much to do to get ready!

A busy weekend

Bill and I had a busy weekend. Friday was our fifth wedding anniversary and Bill was able to take it off from work. We had a nice leisurely breakfast and opened our presents for each other then packed up a picnic lunch and took it and Dexter to the park. We let Dexter play in the water and had a nice lunch in the shade under the trees. Here is a picture of my boys at lunch :)

It was really, really hot out so we didn't walk very far. After the park we went and watched Ocean's 13 then swam in the pool and went out to dinner.

Saturday and Sunday we had 4 hours each day of our childbirth class at Reston Hospital. The class had all sorts of information including a tour of the Maternity wing. The worst part was having to sit in a semi-uncomfortable chair for 4 hours straight--not easy on a pregnant lady's back! One of the best parts--watching Bill practice changing diapers on a doll. :)
Saturday evening we went to a friend's fiesta birthday party and had lots of tacos and queso. No margaritas for me though. :( We played the game Battle of the Sexes which the boys won. I am not sure they would have if they hadn't gotten 2 questions about dill weed and a question about how many weeks the average pregnancy is (which Bill obviously knew).
Then finally on Sunday after class we went and picked up our changing table and assembled it. It took us a good two and a half hours to put together, it probably wouldn't have taken so long but we put a few pieces on backwards and had to backtrack a few times. In our defense the directions were less than clear. Everything is coming together very nicely in the nursery now, we are waiting on a glider that we ordered which will be the last piece of furniture we need.

A crib! We bought a crib today, and set it up in the nursery. I put the skirt and bumper on it, but we don't have sheets yet, so the look is not quite complete. We are very excited to have one of our big furniture purchases done with, now we just need a dresser/changing table and a rocking chair.
