Happy Birthday to me! I get to celebrate being 25 years old and 26 weeks pregnant. This week was pretty good. I think I had the flu for like two days. It was a mild version of the flue but none the less the flu. Azalia is moving around like a crazy person. She moves 24/7 it still kinda feels like grumbles in my tummy when Daniel feels it but at least he is feeling her move. We are getting very excited to have her arrive and I feel like its forever away. Even though the pregnancy is going fast the time it is taking her to arrive is long. I went shopping for nursery stuff and needless to say I bought more clothes to add to her already large ward robe. I still need a lot of stuff. Missy is giving me stuff she used when Teagan was born but I keep forgetting stuff she said she has and is giving me. Plus, she doesn’t move out here for a few months so I wont have it until then. We still need anything and everything. I feel like all I have are diapers and clothes….and not even a lot of diapers. Aunt Connie has done good with pre stocking our diaper supply! J I have been looking at bassinets, cribs, dressers, chandeliers, bedding, fabric, etc. I feel like it is a never ending list of things I need and that is just the beginning. We have NOTHING! I have a crib in mind and also a dresser or two…I haven’t decided if two dressers (a side by side chest of drawer with 6 drawers and a tall 5 drawer dresser) would be too much. Daniel doesn’t give much input. I think I might make him go to the fabric store with me to look at fabric for her bedroom. I think I have changed the colors slightly. I was going to do vintage white and lavender. I think I might do more of a bright white and different shades of purple from light to dark. I really like this idea and it doesn’t venture far from my original plan. Who knows though. I need to start buying stuff so I can have my mind made up.
I got a ton of text messages and Facebook messages to wish me a happy birthday. I of course worked my normal day of work and then after work Daniel, Maddie, Jakob and my family went with me to have Café Rio as my birthday dinner. For my birthday I got a necklace and scarf from Shelly and Jake; a cardigan and a scarf with lace trim from Maddie and Jakob; a summer dress and caramel popcorn from The Valley Fair mall (my favorite popcorn place)from my parents and brothers; Aunt Connie said she will let me know when she has my gift and LaReine has something for me so I am super excited; then roses from Daniel and good old cash from my grandma Helen and also my grandma Nelta and Mike. I am getting a sewing table from Daniel it just isn’t here yet. It is a double sided craft desk for my sewing machine and my serger (my serger was also a part of my birthday gift; it was Christmas/birthday from my parents). With the money I am getting a Zebra print office chair to use with my new desk. I know it seems sorta silly but I am super excited for my chair and desk.
