Nameless baby, clean house...

This past Tuesday I saw my midwife for the first time in months! It was a nice visit. Baby seems fine in there, my blood pressure is great etc. etc. The baby is still nameless and we really need to come up with something fast! I want to make sure we have enough time to see if we really like the name or if it fades away.

It dawned on me this morning that I need to get the house in tip top shape. If anything were to happen early baby-wise it would be a raging mess and make the chaos of all that goes along with a baby that comes too early far worse.

So I spent the day cleaning upstairs. I steam cleaned the carpet and it took forever and I still feel like it's not clean at all. Carpet is disgusting. I can't imagine anyone voluntarily putting in carpet. I look forward to the day we replace it with wood flooring. In my dreams Chris sends me away for a week (alone!) and I come back and he surprises me with wood floors upstairs. In reality I will have to beat him over the head for years to get him to do it.

I gave Walter a haircut tonight.

To remember: Today Arden was blowing bubbles into her mug of milk and Claire shouted "A LATTE!!!"

We're all about the birthdays in this house...

And today it was my turn! I spent the day in awe of the awesome pictures my fancy new birthday camera takes without me having any clue what the hell I'm doing! Look here...

And this is what 37 looks like...

(30 weeks, 5 days complete)

I had a great day! We hung around the house all day until we all went out to dinner and then we came home and had a yummy cake that Chris made.
