Whew! I'm tired

And she's not even here yet.  Not sure what the reality of her arrival will hold, but March (well, let's just go ahead and call it ALL of 2010) has been insane. After having friends and family visit a few weeks ago for our baby shower, we spent the weeks following getting Aiden hooked up with a new big boy bed, setting up BGT's nursery, setting up BGT's temporary station (in our closet!), and trying to tie up any loose ends...which there seem to be lots of! So a lot of adjustment with Nathan being gone and back to work and me figuring out what I'm going to do for work, and getting ready for this new little baby that's going to rock our world in a few days. Exciting, but EXHAUSTING!

Needless to say, most of you have been up to date on all the going's on with BGT and our activity at the homestead, so you know it's been wild, but despite the craziness of it, we've had some really great times. Aiden is LOVING his new big boy bed and the status that comes with it. He has already nicknamed it "B" and when he walks in his room, he smiles and yells, "B!!!" like it's been forever since he's seen the bed and can't wait to be reunited with it. He finally got through the last of his four incisors and has been sleeping like a champion in his new B. This alone makes Mommy and Daddy so happy. He is still such a cuddler and we love our time together reading stories - only he reads them to us more now in his own form of Aidenspeak. It's a sight to see for sure. He's finally made the transition from two naps to one, and quite well I might add. Three hours every afternoon is a nice means of peace and quiet for mom (ME!) and gives me some down time that I know will be great once the baby is here. All around he's doing super and is trying to get his little mind around what this new baby in Mama's tummy is going to mean for him. (Don't we all, Boogs, don't we all.)
Cutie pie's big boy bed...before the rail. The rail is NO FUN to change sheets with let me tell you! It about set me into LABOR! Geez. And the boy and his books...does he LOVE his books...
My sleeping "giant" in his bed...still trying to find a time to get him in the real thing asleep. It is so cute.

We've also got BGT's room in a semi-orderly place. It's not a finished product by any means, but she likely will not even use it until this summer, so I'm hoping that as we have help from family and friends we can piecemeal it together between now and then. No pictures, not many trinkets, and the decor is sparse, but hey, the bed's in there and the dresser's stocked, so at least we're somewhere.

As an update on BGT, we have had a few more visits, none too "awesome" in my doctor's terms, but she is hanging in there and chillin inside for now. I'll post another shorter note about that in a few minutes.

Nathan's job continues to go well, although we still don't see each other all that often. This part is the hardest for me and continues to be hard as much as I wish it weren't. It is getting better and the warm weather (honestly) has helped. Seems crazy, but at least I can be outside for some of the day rather than trapped in the wintery mess we've experienced the past few months. He is enjoying the work and likes his co-workers, so all seems to be progressing in the career front for him, which is a huge praise in this wacky market we find ourselves in.

So that's the short of it. Well, as short as I can be at least. Again, I'll try and get some of the pictures posted soon. Until then, Kara out.
