Sunday we ordered our cabinets, countertops and appliances for the kitchen. They should be here in about 4-6 weeks. Just in time for baby. The work on the roof will probably start sometime next week too.
We have a little girl who is turning five this Sunday. Easter Sunday. Hard to believe five years ago, Charlotte was born on Easter Sunday! So we had a little birthday party for her on Saturday for her friends. I figure we had over 20 kids here for it. All 20 kids represented 6 families. I think they had fun.
As for baby, she is doing well. Although, Nate is still betting on a boy. Both he and I had dreams at different times that the baby was a boy. This was all before the ultrasound. The girls are still dead set on the baby being Anne Noelle. I just call the baby, "the baby" because I am not really sure. Ultrasounds can be wrong, although this one seemed pretty obvious. :)
I haven't been feeling too well lately. I have been having a lot of pain in my lower right back, and it shoots down my leg at times, which is probably baby resting its head on my nerve. Somedays I can hardly lift my leg to walk.
Plus, emotionally I get these moments of anxiety and fear. You would think after four babies, I would be feeling confident, but it's just the opposite. I am praying all the time for relief from these feelings, but sometimes it takes a while. I have even been awaken at night by them.
I am 34 weeks and usually I don't start feeling emotional until the last two weeks, so this is new to me. It's been hard to be a joyful mother and wife the last couple weeks. I must confess it will be nice to have this over and moving on to the next phase. At least I am closer to the end then the beginning!
Well, that's a little of what's been going on over here. Hopefully I will have some more pictures next week as the guys start laying block for the addition. Thanks for stopping by!
