Need sleep

I've come to realize that I need more sleep with this pregnancy. Just about every day I have to take a nap when Ethan takes his. We just got back from our trip to Lake Blackshear and I probably averaged 5 hours of sleep a night. I took a nap everyday but was still exhausted. By Friday I was a little grumpy (ok Jason, Kimberly & Stephen would probably tell you I was a lot grumpy!) but getting little sleep, taking care of a 3 year old and being out in the sun will take its toll eventually. Last night I was able to catch up on my sleep and I feel great today, I think I'm even going to skip nap!!

Brennan's room is painted!

Last weekend Stephen & I painted Brennan's room. We finally went with the color that Kimberly saw on HGTV and I love it! Since we painted Ethan's room this weekend we moved all of his baby furniture into her room. We still need to decide exactly where everything is going to go but we have some time to do that.

Decisions are not easy

So I have five different colors of pink painted on the wall to see what I like. There is one that is a close contender but I'm still not 100% sure. I have a paint chip that is being mailed to me from Arizona and that will be the last. If I don't like it then I'll just deal with the color that is now in 1st place.

Speaking of the paint chip from Arizona, Kimberly called me the other day and said she was watching a show on HGTV and love the color pink they painted the person's bedroom. I went on line and found the color they used. The paint was sold by a company called Frazee Paint. They only have stores on the west coast. So I called them and told them what I was looking for and they were happy to mail me a paint chip. The lady was excited that I had heard about the paint color from a TV show. I called on Monday so I'm hoping it will be here by tomorrow. At least then we'll have a decision and can start painting.

I went to Babies R Us yesterday with my friend, Michelle. There were a couple of crib sets that I saw online and liked so I wanted to see them in person. The one that was on the top of the list was there and I instantly fell in love so I bought it. Click here to see what it looks like. It's simple, which is what I wanted, so I can decorate with other patterns etc. I also started a registry, we don't need much since we still have all of Ethan's baby things but we have to have some girly things!

Brennan has been very active and it's been fun watching and feeling her kick me. I'm not really one of those women who love being pregnant but I really enjoy the kicking and moving. I remember after having Ethan that was the one thing that I missed. I can't wait for our baby girl to get here! Ethan is so eager to hold her and so is Stephen. Stephen is finally coming out of his shock and is looking forward to having a baby girl. Only 17 weeks left to go!!!!!
