Robin and I have had a very relaxing Sunday morning! We made breakfast and enjoyed it on the lawn while watching runners in the Austin Marathon go by. We were able to catch a glimpse of and cheer on our friend Aaron, the one and only person we know that was running the marathon and were particularly impressed that at mile 20 (where our house is on the route), he was still able to shout out "Nice house!" Here's hoping to a great marathon for Aaron!
Weekend projects include:
--Finishing the railings in the house.
--Getting car seat assembled and bases installed. (see note below)
--Getting bottles organized and ready to be washed and sterilized a little closer to Baby G.'s arrival.
--Mounting the "L"s in the nursery.
--Trim and other paint touch-ups.
--Unpacking and organizing our clothes. We have a lot of them!
We are also eager to have people over for dinner for the first time in the new house! Friends Brian and Elizabeth (who are expecting a baby boy in April) will be joining us tonight!
On the car seats:
The statistics on the percentage of car seats that are improperly installed are terrifying! Thanks to Jessica and Aaron, mom and dad to Aidan, we found Safe Riders, a project of the Texas Department of State Health Services and the Texas Department of Transportation. Safe Riders does "Child Seat Check-ups" free of charge, where they inspect the installation of your car seat to insure it is correct!
