We've been gone for the last week to see Keith's family in Florida...we got to visit with darn near everyone! His parents are full-time Floridians now, his grandparents are snowbirds, and his bro, sis, bro-in-law, and niece were all there to round out the immediate family. In addition, we saw great aunt/uncles, cousins, aunts, etc. We had pretty good weather for most of the trip, and got in a few days by the pool. I went swimming twice, and it felt great to get the baby belly in the water (and take the pressure off my back!). I have to say though, that coming out of the pool makes you feel like a lead balloon...back to reality! We took lots of walks in the sunshine, and Keith went out for his morning ritual of a golf cart ride around the community with his cup-a-joe while I slept in a little. I'll post some pics, which also highlight my 32 week sized baby belly!
While in Florida, Keith's sister, Stacy, and his mom, Judy, threw me a baby shower at a Tea Room in Sebring. It was situated right on the lake, with really pretty views. We had a delish lunch, and it was a fun afternoon. Thanks for organizing the shower, Stacy!
Keith got a book for Christmas called, "So You're Going to Be a Dad". He had it finished in two days and said it was pretty humorous. He said it nicely summed up all the crazy pregnancy characteristics that I have, and proved to him that I'm a pretty normal pregnant woman (mood swings, nesting urges, forgetfulness and all!).
We finally got all the parts we needed to finish putting the crib together, and Keith did that this afternoon. I am ordering curtains, and we'll probably have the nursery done in the next week or two. I'll be sure to post pics of the finished product!
