An empty nest...for a little while.

Well we officially have the house all to ourselves...with the animals too of course. My brother moved out a couple of weekends ago & my cousin had her last day at the AL Republican Party on Friday. It is bittersweet as we are excited to be all alone in our house for the first time, but we will miss having company around too. My brother moved into his own apt. just up the street so he won't be far & my cousin is headed back to Gulf Shores now until she hopefully starts a job with Judge Greg Shaw in Montgomery. Both of them were always busy & gone a lot, not to mention they basically had their own quarters upstairs, so it isn't too different without them here. But now it is time to get the nursery started which I'm very excited about but a little overwhelmed at the same time. This coming w/e I plan on going around to the 6 or 7 fabric stores I picked out around B'ham to start the hunt for fabrics. My lovely sister-in-law has graciously offered to make the little guy custom bedding which will be so superb & unique & I just can't wait to see how it all turns out. So I feel like I need to pick all that out first and then figure out paint colors, furniture, etc. There is a lot to do but we have plenty of time...I just know March will be here before we know it!

Oh and one thing that I think I forgot to mention on the announcement blog is that my placenta is in the front which the doctor said is fine but that means I won't be able to really feel him kicking or anything for awhile I guess. Basically it is acting like a barrier or cushion/pillow inbetween him and my stomach. So for now I still sort of feel little twitches every now and then if I lie still for awhile, but for the most part I don't feel much of anything. It was making me a little nervous last week when I was reading about what was going on that week & it said "I'm moving around all the time & waking mommy up at night!" I was like no he doesn't! :) I'm ready to really feel him moving around but I guess I will have to be patient. Justin was a 10 lb baby & I was 8.3 lbs so I have a feeling he is going to be a big boy especially since he is already in the 93rd percentile! I'm sure I'll feel him soon enough. :)
