Done Nesting!!!






Here are new Sofia pictures. The other day she really liked carrying around her stuffed monkey in the baby Bjorn. The next picture she is playing with her new baby boy (thank you Heather). Maybe this will distract her from smothering her new brother? The guitar pictures are of Sofia and her little neighbor friend Kayden. For how fiesty she can be with other kids around her age, she is for some reason fascinated with Kayden. The last picture is of Sofia and her babies in our new (used) bike trailer. I think that I am the only person in Corvallis who doesn't own a bike, and so I am dedicated to becoming a bike rider this spring.
If you didn't happen to notice, I also changed my blog background. I guess I gave into the intense pressure I felt when I looked at everyone else's cute backgrounds :).
I also would like to announce that my crazy nesting is over. Chris and I have done more in our house in the last 3 months, than we did the whole 2 years that we have lived here. Some of these changes include: Hardwood floors downstairs, painted kitchen and bathroom cabinets, painted doors and trim, new carpet, new deck, etc... The new carpet was put in on Saturday, and I am so glad I didn't go into labor while that was happening with our house a wreck. I am also grateful because Chris was shooting a wedding in Vancouver and didn't get home until 1:30 in the morning, so that would have been so not good if I had been labor. Thankfully Chris' dad came up to help him shoot just in case. Thanks Carlos!! Now that I am feeling more ready for the baby to come, he probably will decide to be late, but my due date is this Saturday.. so we will see. With my intense Mama nesting, I think that I sometimes have overlooked how blessed I am. I have a sweet husband and daughter, and I am about to meet a new sweet addition. If only I didn't have to go through that labor part before I get to meet him. Oh well, it will definitely be worth it.

I can't believe you will be a mama x2 by Saturday! Well, hopefully by Saturday, right? You will love a little boy. At least I have, but then again, I have nothing to compare it too. Thanks for the reminder about being blessed in your life. I'm feeling rather emotional about the whole thing right now. We take for granted our little lives and how wonderful they can be. I can't wait to meet your new addition...if I EVER get to see you again. Let's commit to video chatting THIS WEEK, eh? P.S...Do I no longer count as family/friend on your blog list? I'm missing and heartbroken over it...LOL.

Kara, I like the new look. I can't believe the time has already come for this little guy to come! Did your stomach ever poke out, or does your skinny butt still look 5 months pregnant? Good luck with everything. Hope he comes soon.

To answer your question, yes Gavin goes to CHS preschool and loves it. Glad to hear things are slowing down at your house. It's always nice to get things done. Especially before the baby comes.

Did you have your baby yet? Maybe you'll forget about the labor part, just like you (obviously) did the last time.

Your little Sophia is a Doll. Wow, what a cute little girl. Very cute blog also. What blog isn't random, really. Congrants on the soon to be little boy. Hopefully he comes sooner than later. Good Luck:)

Hey Kara, On Pyzam I just went and looked at their abstract layouts and they had a couple cute ones. There are like a million to look at so I just had to pick one. I found that the abstract ones seem to be the better ones though.
