Home Sweet Home

I am typing this post from my very on bed! There is a certain dog, curled up in a ball, lying beside me! He is getting way too spoiled in all of the madness...

Yesterday, Blake picked me up around 5:15 pm but rush hour traffic got us home around 6:00pm. I felt a bit strange to pull into the driveway and walk into the door. Thankfully, I have not been a ball of nerves like expected. I know it has been less than 24 hours but I think I am off to a good start! Sadly, I think my calves are sore from walking up the stairs! I was again reminded that any and all muscle tone I had before this pregnancy is officially gone. However, I will muster up the strength to hold this little guy for sure!

I have an appointment with Dr. B on Monday afternoon. I will be eager to see where things stand at that point. As we were leaving, the nurse told me to keep my bags packed "just in case." I am hoping to avoid that for at least a week or two! I am trying not to worry too much about all of that. One day at a time...

On a different note, there were slight paint fumes coming from the spare bedroom! From what I hear, we lack one more coat of paint on the walls. At my request, the decorating of the nursery has been taken out of my hands. I am giving input on likes and dislikes, but I don't want to see the finished project until this little guy comes home. Seeing how the room is across the hall from our bedroom, I would normally be tempted to take a sneak peak. But not this time! The thought of seeing it for the first time with him in my arms is enough to make me stand my ground!!

I guess that is the latest. All is well at the moment and I hope it stays that way. Will let you know if there are any changes!

Oh, my goodness, the nursery!!!! Sweet! I don't know how you can keep yourself from looking, but I totally understand your decision! Oh, what a great day that will be! Absolutely precious with angels singing! Love you~ Jill

P.S. Don't worry about the muscle-tone...I'm not even pregnant and have lost mine somehow...I think I left it in that bag of Doritos! :)

So glad you are home and are feeling good about being home. We'll continue to pray for you and baby Malone.

I am WAY impressed about not peeking at the nursery. How cool! I don't know anyone who has ever done that before!!
