26 weeks and counting!

The 26th week is more than half over now, and I am pretty much caught up on blogging and housework.  I have been on alert for work the last few days which has given me a chance to get caught up here at home.  We had a fairly quiet weekend.  Friday, I had to go into work for a little while for some classes, then we went to meet Remy Hossain.  He was born to my cousin Megan and Brandon in Topeka about 2 weeks ago and we had not had the chance to meet him yet.  He is a little cutie, and I am sure him and his brother, Aiden, will keep Mom and Dad moving! 

Me, Megan, and Remy

Saturday, I took the chance to sleep in and Tim was up before me getting some yard work done.  He was on call for EMS and did get called in briefly a couple of times, but I am just glad it wasn't for a transfer, which would have had him gone all day (pretty much)  Between the calls he did the the yard mowed, trimmed, and the bushes trimmed.  It always looks so nice when he is done, just seems like it needs done about twice a week!  After I got up, I went to work on sewing the pink ribbon on the bottom of the curtains for Little Miss's room.  I found the perfect green curtains at Target for only $8 a panel, so snatched them up and then decided that I would  personalize them a bit with some ribbon.  They turned out great, and Grandma that sewing machine has came in so useful once again!!  I have those pictures on the other camera so will get them uploaded soon and post the process.  Saturday evening we went to Mass and they took time to install the new officers in the Knights of Columbus, this included Tim! He was elected to be a Trustee and is the co-chairman of a committee.  I don't remember the name of it, but it is the one that plans most of their events...he is going to be a busy guy!  After Mass, we attended a dinner to celebrate with the other new officers, their families, and other members of the Knights of Columbus.  We had a great time, and the meal was fantastic! 

Sunday brought me sleeping in (again) and Tim heading off to work.  He is working a trade today (Monday) so he is there again.  I am not a huge fan of him working for 48 hrs straight, but at the same time I am so thankful that he has a job that he is able to trade days around with the other guys when he needs time that makes the back to back shifts well worth it.

He will be home tomorrow, then have to work again on Wednesday and Saturday.  His project list for tomorrow is pretty short though, just has to hang the new blinds in the nursery!  He does have the 4th off this year so I am looking forward to that.  I will be going to Topeka on Tues and Wed this week to fly.  Those will be my last flights until after the baby is here.  The AF doesn't allow you to fly in your 3rd trimester, so it will be office work for a few months.  It will be kind of bitter sweet.  I am bummed that I will not be able to fly for so long, but it is also exciting because we are that much closer to meeting our little one. 

Hope you all had a great weekend and that this is a short week for you with the holiday coming up! And here is the 26 week pictures:

  1. You're really starting to "pop"! It's so great to finally look and feel so pregnant (maybe that was just me though). We're even more excited for you guys now that we know how amazing it is to be think you love her now, but you have NO idea how much more you can love.

    Speaking of love...the nursery is AMAZING, especially the paint job!!
