I had a big day today!
The Muffin was grumpy, but we went to get a few groceries and that seemed to cheer her up. She spent lots of time outside today and that probably helped too.
I went to my doctor's appointment and saw an actual doctor (a rarity for me) in stead of a midwife.
I found out that one of my best mommy-friends, April, is pregnant.
I started painting the baby's room.
I received my big bumgenius diaper order.
My doctor's visit was overall, nothing special. I didn't have to wait too long, but my visit with the doctor was so much shorter than my usual midwife visit. I have nothing against the OB's in my practice, but they just don't take as much time with their appointments as the midwives, with one doctor as the exception. I had to see the OB to get my final okay for a VBAC. He said we would try "if that's what I wanted". (I immediately saw why midwives have a higher success rates with VBAC's than OB's if this is the way they all act!) He did give me a bit of news that makes me feel so much better; I get to have another ultrasound at 36 weeks! If the cord insertion and placement and the placenta look okay, I'll get their "blessing" for a VBAC. I guess I may also get another look at the private area of this little baby and be able to feel more confident that it is in fact an Ellie and not an Eli!
Please keep my sweet friend April in your prayers. She has a litle boy the same age as Muff and she has been trying for a while to have another baby. She and her husband had five devastating miscarriages before successfully delivering their son.
As for my painting project, so far, so good. I have the trim stuff painted, so I'll be "rolling" tomorrow evening. I'll try to touch up the molding and doors while Big Daddy is between jobs. The color is "Light Raffia" , but I just want to call it biscotti. I really like it. Of course, it's on the same paint chip as the living room and just a shade off from our kitchen, foyer and hallways. I'm a chicken with paint colors except for The Muffin's room and the downstairs powder room. It's the real estate agent in me that likes things to stay neutral. With any luck. I'll be doing a picture post on Saturday and finally reveal the bedding. Don't hold your breath, it's not that exciting.
And last but not least, please pray for us and our house. I'm doing better than I thought I would, but Big Daddy is having a hard time with the thoughts of us being apart until the houses sells. I'd greatly appreciate your prayers that our house shows, gets an offer and closes soon. We really want to move on with our lives and start an exciting new chapter.
