I'm in the 9th month. Woohoo! Baby boy has reached full term. That makes me so happy.
This week I bought the last things on our list-of-things-to-buy-before-baby-boy-arrives. A bought a Moby Wrap and one more cloth diaper! The Moby Wrap was something I really wanted as I envision using it around the house a lot with baby boy and when out and about. We had a coupon/gift card for Babies R Us and I was so happy to see they sold them in store. I bought one more cloth diaper, so we now have a total of 10 bum genius 4.0s. I figure that's a solid days worth and then we can acquire more over the next few months.
Sleep: Fine. Even on the nights that I get a good amount of sleep I still wake up feeling tired. I'm just tired lately in general. I get random bursts of energy and I'll be productive around the house, but then I'll need to rest for a while. There's absolutely no sleeping through the night at this point due to bathroom breaks. I slept in until 8AM both weekend mornings which is practically unheard of for me. It was so nice not to have an alarm to follow.
Over the weekend we bought our very first lawnmower. It's a big deal. When we moved into our house we just happened to stumble across a lawnmower someone had left on the side of the road, and it lasted us a whole year! Within that year we had to ask our neighbor to repair it like five times, but it was all really simple stuff for him. However, it had it's final run over the weekend. Now that we had to buy our very first lawnmower, I really feel like an adult ;)
On top of that, our vacuum decided to freakout over the weekend as well. We had to say goodbye to that too. New vacuum is on it's way from Target this week and it's supposed to be really good at getting rid of pet fur. A quality vacuum is life changing with my two furry pups.
On Monday morning, just as my husband was dropping me off at work, his car started to overheat. Uh oh... Our plan is to buy a new car this fall, but that plan just got bumped up a bit. Thankfully his car just needed a new water pump and it wasn't too pricey. However, we were basically told that his car could last a week or a year. Hmmm...not the most reassuring news. Therefore, we are heading to the Subaru dealership tonight to start the process. On a happy note, we put the car seat in my hubby's car (even though now we may be taking it out - oops!) on Saturday, so those pups enjoyed their final ride in his car prior to the car seat being installed. They love to come everywhere with us, but now that my husband cleaned all the fur out of his car, we want to keep it clean for when baby boy arrives. The pups will just have to be patient for their car rides.

Sunday was my mother-in-laws birthday. Happy happy birthday! We drove to my hometown and visited with family for the day. Great food (that veggie burger I mentioned), wonderful company, and happy birthday celebrating. It was a really nice day. Later that night we came home and finished baby boy's room.

We hung the window and closet curtain my mom made for the nursery (thanks, Mom!). There is literally nothing else we plan to do to his room. Baby boy, your room is ready for you!

Goals: I had my 37 week doctor's appointment yesterday and at this point it's just time to wait for baby boy's arrival. We are so excited to meet you whenever you're ready!
