The Paint is Dry!

Before discussing the paint, over the holidays Addison and I officially decided on the entire name. We are going with Turner Dean Seifritz! I am SO proud of myself for actually making this decision so early. I truly thought he would be about a week old and still not have a name. It has to be the biggest decision. I told Addison I'm going to give the name to my 6th graders and have them come up with anything possible they could think of to be mean--I know the kids already like Turner because there is a Turner in the other pod and he is perfect. I told my students I'm going to follow him around so I can see how a 'Turner' acts. They just laughed.

So! Introducing Turner Dean Seifritz's bedroom!!

The paint is dry! I first have to thank my wonderful husband for taking the two days and numerous hours to do this. He was a trooper and it looks amazing! I was there to support him and bought him oreos, triscuits, and salt and vinegar chips for a little thank you. :) (oh..and I took pictures!)

We started with a flat blue that covered the entire room. I was really surprised I went the route of a 'true' blue for his room, but I truly love it! I know it won't be long before he goes from my baby blue to mmm...let's see green, brown, orange otherwise known as camouflage. :)

Addison started with a huge smile and rearing to go attitude!

Then there came the stripes. We had some issues with the leveler so he had to make trips to Home Depot a few times, but then he was on a 'roll'! This was the most time consuming part and Addison still kept a great attitude. The best part is he did it the correct way. If I did it, it would look NOTHING like this and I would be in tears at some point.

Painting the semi-gloss stripe! As he was doing this I just prayed there would be a difference for it to all be worth it in the end.

Ta Da! I hope you can tell in the pictures, but it looks really good.

Happy camper to be done! Those are the two balls of tape he consumed from the project.

I was so happy with it and can't wait to decorate! All the bedding and curtains are getting made and can't wait to see it all put together! Yeah!!

Christmas fun!

What an amazing Christmas season! Addison and I were talking last night about how excited we are about next Christmas having a little 9 month running around. Turner has been a partying fool lately hanging out with so many wonderful people! We had Bunco cookie exchange, two friend gatherings at the casa, and celebrated my mom's birthday and anniversary yesterday.  We are both just relaxing today before we go, go, go for the next three days. Over the weekend Addison is going to paint the baby room--I'm SO looking forward to getting rid of the peachy pink and having the proud color of blue for his room! I wrapped all our Christmas gifts in blue (I know--I'm corny) in honor of our little boy being with us at Christmas even if he isn't visually seen! :)
    I have been on a quest of finding some pregnancy reads that's not just the medical books. I found a great one, Jools Oliver: The Diary of an Honest Mum that I've just loved the past few days. Since pregnancy is all I think about, it's great to read about it! I bought a few others that I'm looking forward to reading.
   Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and the best New Year! I know this one will be a year Addison and I will never forget.

Another Good Dr Visit!

Nothing too exciting except she said a perfect heartbeat--let's hope we hear that all through my parent meetings. :) As I went on and on about holiday weight and trying to get on the treadmill (I feel like I'm at my weight watchers meeting confessing what I am NOT doing...) she just sits and smiles. I love my DR!

My changing table is going to be here on Wednesday! I am so happy about it!! I am getting prepared to get everything ready over the holiday break before round two of school and the play hits before this little boy is born! And when I say I--I mean Lydia, Sonya, and Natalie helping with their love and eye for decorating!!
I can't believe it has been almost 6 months! I loved it, the other day a colleague said I looked tired but he didn't want to say anything. Then someone followed with, yeah we don't have our Katy on speed like we have in the past. I love that is how they see me in my normal state :) Well, I can tell them right now that ship has sailed!
