My bathroom is complete! My wonderful parents came into town last week and helped us finish this project! A lot of the demo started in September of last year and we are just now finishing! While he was here my dad asked how many hours we thought went into that bathroom. The truth is I have no idea... A LOT! But it is done and I think it looks great! And the best part is now being able to shower on the main floor!!!! No more hauling Jonah up to the second story with me. Anyway, I will share a few pictures with you all....not that you care, but I am so excited!
When you decide to re-tile your bathroom you should A: try not to be six months pregnant and have a watermelon constantly in your way when you drop the spacers into the tub. And B: choose something significantly larger than subway tile. I seriously underestimated how time consuming this project would be. The good news is that this is the last major project on the main floor of our house. After that we move on to the laundry room in the basement and after that, hopefully we will be remodeling the second floor. I wish I could say I saw the end in sight....but I would be lying!
We have had a crazy week so far around here. It is vacation bible school week. The people who put this together clearly put a lot of effort into it and it has been great so far! I wish I could say Jonah was going to remember any of it. He is really learning to like bible class and always asks about it when we walk into the church building now.
He is also learning the names of some of his friends which is so sweet, but makes me just a little sad because I know he is getting so big now. I know I will get to experience all of the baby stuff again very soon, maybe even before I am really ready, but it is still hard to say goodbye to it for the first one. I know many of you moms out there know exactly what I am talking about. I know the day is coming way too fast that he will be too big and too busy just to cuddle with me and those times are so precious to me. I try to remind myself of this on those extra clingy days when I forget what it is like to walk through the house without carrying a child or having one tug on your pant leg.
Anyway, that is about all that is new around here. I will post pics of the bathroom if I ever get it all done! I hope all is well for all of you!
As you may have read on a couple of other blogs by now we had an earthquake last night! Andy and I both woke up at about 4:30 and the whole house was shaking. I had no clue what was going on and Andy got up and said "I think we just had an earthquake." Now, having lived in the midwest pretty much my whole life and earthquake was just not on the list of things I ever thought I would experience. Anyway, the center was about 127 miles away so we weren't in any danger, but now I can say that I have experienced one! Andy had to jump right up and catch the news to figure out if he was right and I decided to join him. Do you know what kind of stupid news is on at 4:30 am???? I had to watch a story about a featherless bird who still likes to call himself "pretty bird". Who gets up to watch this stuff????
Anyway, that is all that is going on here. Anyone else wake up to rattling dishes last night?
Yep, we had our ultrasound yesterday and we are going to have another little boy. I am so excited that Jonah will have a little brother to play with. I am a little worried about my poor house if I get another one anything like Jonah but I think it will survive. I had a feeling it was going to be a boy but Andy was so shocked. He was convinced this one was a girl. He isn't disappointed, just surprised. It is such a nice feeling to know that we already have pretty much everything we need.
April is going to be a busy month for us. We have a lot of visitors come to town. I am so excited to see my sisters and nephew in the next week or so!
That is about all that is going on right now. I am posting a couple of cute pictures of Jonah. For some reason he is obsessed with putting his socks on his hands right now. He pulls them off of his feet and holds out his hands for me to put them there. And I have no idea why he didn't have any clothes on in these. Daddy took them!:)
