Hello again! A few people have asked to see little baby's growing size, so here you are! Over the past two weeks or so I really feel like I'm starting to look pregnant. However, I mainly think I just look...big. My midwife informed me that I have a long torso (I've never considered this to be true before. Maybe?) so maybe that has something to do with why I don't think my body has that typical pregnant shape. Who knows. It could also be that I haven't even reached halfway in the pregnancy yet.
Other than growing a little human, waiting to hear about a new job prospect, purchasing our dream stroller set (it should be here soon!), and living with my parents, we have additional big news. We bought a house! Now, we're still in the closing process and waiting to get the official thumbs up from the bank regarding our loan, but our offer was accepted, the inspection is completed, and the seller has agreed to fix EVERYTHING we asked of them! If all goes smoothly, we should close December 21st. While there are several cosmetic changes we plan to make at some time or another, I am in love with this house. It's an old brick home built in 1900. I love it. I keep envisioning myself with my growing family living in this house over the years and it brings such a smile to my face.
Lately, Phillip and I have been researching furniture, countertops, flooring, decor, etc. I'm crazy excited about a little project that Phill has taken up. I mentioned the idea of building our own dining room table out of reclaimed wood and he really loved the idea! We were able to purchase wood from a local man who is going piece by piece through an old falling down barn. I think it's just so neat to 1) Support someone local through this little project, 2) Have something substantial that we (Phill) made, & 3) Have a piece of furniture with a known history. I really think it'll turn out beautifully!
Have a great first full week of December!
