29 weeks!

 Wow, I really can't believe I have made it this far and we only have (fingers crossed!) about 11 weeks left.  So much planning, cleaning and organizing left to do, but I know I will get it done. tells me it's time to start a hospital bag "just in case."  And that I should finish stocking the baby room with baby essentials....I think I'm a little behind on this!  Although, baby Buzz will be getting his first little newborn diapers this weekend from a friend who's boy outgrew them already. is comparing my child to an acorn squash this week....??  Not real sure on this one, but they say he is 15.2 to 16.7 inches in length and weighs about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds.  And, that he will triple this weight before he is born! Whoa, this could be a big baby if he triples 3.8 pounds!  He is still continuing to grow fat deposits that are rounding him out so that mommy has lots of little rolls to love!  But, because of the growing white fat deposits, his energy is surging.  This would explain the over-active kicking and elbow flying I've been experiencing.  He still gets the hiccups at least once a day (which I've heard is actually a good sign of healthy lungs).  

my hand looks scary!
I've still got things to work on.  But a lot of this will come after we have our birthing classes, which we thought were supposed to be in February, but are actually in March.  I have questions that need answers, papers that need filled out, one registry that needs finished, corners and base boards that need cleaned, baby clothes that need washed and a little dresser that needs filled.  The list goes on and on, but I don't think it's ever supposed to end.

Right now, hubby is in the process of building an open storage cabinet.  Actually, he finished building and filling holes last night and now it just needs a coat or two of stain and a polyurethane finish.  He is so proud of this cabinet and so happy that he could build something for Buzz's room.  After borrowing a router table from a friend, he decided to buy his own and start building more things for baby, like a toy box and picture frames.  He can build until his heart's content if it makes him happy (and keeps the remote out of his hand and in mine!).
