i've witnessed the near completion of the baby's room this week; tomorrow is the final day of mudding! the guys (edward, pete, and geoff) are planning to attack the last of it to get the room sanding & paint-ready for next weekend. also following closely behind is the tearing up of the carpets and laying of the wood flooring! i've also talked edward into painting the old wood floors upstairs (which are painted grey right now, but i am wishing for a warmer tone). also, stripping and sealing the walls in the big spare room will need to be completed and that should take a while. then painting the living room, putting up some crown molding, new ceiling light, a drop ceiling and new ceiling light in the dining room and we'll be able to slow it down until the baby arrives. i figure i will be able to pick away at the rest of the renovating once caleb is born.
speaking of caleb, he's over a pound in weight now and growing steadily at 27 weeks; lately i feel like he's an octopus and not a human baby as he's kicking and punching me all over. the kicking and punching is leading to pain in areas that he has no business inflicting it, not that it occurs to him. newest place: my lungs & my kidneys. thanks, kid! mommy doesn't need those in tact or anything.
