Labor Day

Hoping everyone has enjoyed their Labor Day. Trace and I would have loved to lounge around and maybe go to the lake, just enjoy the rare day that we have off together with nothing to do...But, alas,there was work to do as always. The baby is t-minus 11 weeks and counting until EDD (expected due date) and the nursery is far from ready. So, on my list of things to do included cleaning and organizing. Oh, the name is going to be Nathan Hayes...It was actually already decided, but congratulations to all those who correctly picked! So here is a picture of what I had to start with this morning, sadly, this is improved from about a month ago.

Scary! But after half a day of "hard" work, I made a large dent and now we have...

Ta da!!! It may not look like much, but I am proud of the progress.

In addition to the cleaning, the day involved yard work, looking over resumes for the clinic, and treating a little Pom named Miley Mae who we did a c-section on last week and hasn't eaten since...Little Miley got to come home with me today and is hanging out in the laundry room right now, but is much better than earlier. So, hopefully everyone's Labor day was as fruitful as you desired. Trace and I can will work on updating more frequently than once every two weeks.

I will sign off with a pic of Wyatt, isn't he adorable! He has had a hard day too...

What an improvement! Yeah, I meant to give you a hard time about not posting but I forgot. When baby arrives, I want at least weekly pictures!

Just came across your site as I was scrolling through blogs on Blogger. Cute dachshund!

I have a baby who is 5 months old and the nursery STILL isn't done. So embarrassing. I mean, it looks like your Before picture. One of these days we'll finish it. With our first it was done in plenty of time. Oh, well; hopefully I'm not scarring him for life if his nursery isn't done until sometime in the second half of his first year.

Best of luck with your first baby!
