Our house is lovely and there are many lovely things in it, but do I love it all? Not quite, somethings I just like or I’ve held on to because I’ve managed to hold onto it for over 10 years already so why stop now. That frame of mind is over. Out with the old and in with the baby! I got a reality check to how baby-friendly our house was when these three came to visit. More room was needed, less glass objects, space for stroller and all their toys. They were only here for a week. So now our married bachelor lifestyle is coming to an end and we couldn’t be happier to prepare for it.
Mum’s been doing her thing, organising every cupboard, linen press, draws, even furniture. It looks fantastic. We’ve ripped apart our bedroom, cleaned every nook and cranky and rearranged it in a better layout… and done the same in the Studio, the Nursery, the Bathroom, the Kitchen, the Laundry, and the Lounge Room. Yep, the whole house is now completed. I know that with this pregnancy there is a very high chance that I might be on bed rest so it’s nice to know the majority of the work is done for now.
Which is also why Steve is taking Mum & I shopping for Baby Stuff this afternoon! We’re going to hit here and here and here quite possibly here. I’m hoping to put a stroller on lay by or at least test drive them. Also car seat, mattress and linen for cradle, look at baby carriers, swings & rockers and other fun baby things. It’s already the highlight of my day.
Steve couldn’t be more excited and I wouldn’t put it pass him that he’s sitting at work right now googling strollers. He came home yesterday with pages of info on portacots and a little speech on how Little Mez will need one when visiting Grandma & Grandpa, Great Grandma & Great Poppy and Little Mez’s cousin’s the Schultz’s. I couldn’t agree more. Steve’s full of wonderful surprises. i love how keen and helpful he is already. I just hope my mood swings don’t deter his efforts. He said Honey, I’ve seen all your mood swings, do you remember Clomid? I haven’t the heart to tell him he aint seen nothing yet.
Yesterday I was taken out to lunch by Wez. I got a lovely email saying we should have lunch and catch up. You can imagine that before I was even eating my lunch I was happy. Someone from normal life made contact with me and wanted to involve me in normal life activities. Sweet, and it was. He picked me up, we had lunch at a cafe in Windsor Mall and laughed and shared gossip… ok well I mainly had Little Mez to talk about but we shared and it was nice. He asked questions and even paid for lunch. I do not understand why he’s single…. but I digress, it was a really nice gesture and we have plans to do it again soon.
Other than that I’ve been cleaning, sorting and hanging out in the nursery. I’m so eager to buy the cot and dresser so I can get the room sorted. There is no gaurentee the IKEA stuff will work for us as we haven’t looked at it in person yet. I’m keeping my mind open. I’ve opened my photography assignments… and shut them for now. I’m sure a day will come next week when my head isn’t muddled by “baby” and I’ll get it done. There’s no rush. I’m hoping to organise a few shoots but we’ll see how I go after my 17wk cervical scan. I can’t believe I’ll be 16wks tomorrow… wow.
