Moved in and getting settled!
With the indispensable help of Robin's dad, Dale, we moved into our new house on Monday! We have been slowly but surely getting unpacked and settled. It feels wonderful to be back in our old neighborhood in Central Austin! We are so much happier here and have confirmed our suspicions that we are not cut out for the 'burbs.
Robin is working very hard on finishing touches of the house--the second bathroom upstairs, a tile backsplash and hoodfan in the kitchen, medicine cabinets, paint touch-up, and caulk in the master bath, as well as lining up people to come and work on the back porches and the floors in the second unit.
This weekend, we spent a lot of time setting up the nursery, washing clothes, bedding, etc., and trying to get everything organized. We still have a lot to do, but the room is finally taking shape.
More on the baby front, we have our 36-week doctor's appointment on Tuesday. This will include a final ultrasound to check Baby G.'s growth. At our 32-week check, she was measuring as quite a biggie, so our OB wanted to monitor her weight gain. We also met with Kristen, our doula, today to discuss more specifically what to do when I go into labor, and tomorrow we begin birthing classes with Shelly Scotka at Any Baby Can.
Finally, this morning Andrea Turner came over and took some maternity photographs. This is something I've wanted to do since before I was pregnant, and after looking at a few of the shots from this morning on her camera, I am VERY excited to see the rest!
And now, a sneak peak of the new digs...
