Kortnee left for home on Saturday. I can't get over how sad I am that she is gone. We miss her so bad and our home just feels so empty without her young beautiful soul here everyday. I am still trying to convince her that there is enough time to come back still and go to school here. She just isn't buying it. I don't blame her. She wants to be with her momma and her brother and I would probably make the same choice. Maybe we will have better luck convincing her to stay next year when her little sister is here. ;)
So while Chris was driving her home, I was at home putting the crib together trying to keep my mind off the fact that she was gone. Chris got home just in time to help me with some of the more akward pieces. Had I not been huge, uncoordinated and conscious about how much I am lifting, I would have had no problem, but that isn't the case now is it. And I am only going to get bigger! Chris painted her room last weekend and it looks really cute. He and Kortnee picked out some colors and I chose the one I liked the best. We still have a lot of work to do in there but have a pretty good start on it now and both love to be in there. I went against what I originally said and instead of it being a neutral room it is going to be really girly. How can I resist!
Here are some pics of it so far:
When I was young, my best friend's mom made this chair for me. I have saved it for years and it will make the perfect addition to the nursery.

So for the past week or so the baby has been kicking a lot, and HARD! The other day Chris had his hand on my belly trying to feel it and she kicked so hard that I jumped...needless to say he didn't feel it. I have been starting to nest more and more. I think partly b/c I know the end of tax season is upon me and I fear if I leave everything for after October 15th, I will go crazy! Better to have a start on it than to leave it as a distraction while I am working crazy long hours. I am getting bigger for sure. I feel really good for the most part but I am getting sort of clumsy and it is hard for me to do a lot of the things I do regularly. I can't really bend at the waste, at least not easily and when I do I always get a lot of kicking. My brain is broken and I can't think of what else has changed so I will Share more next time.
Here is a pic of me at 21 weeks 3 days
I am wiped out. Time for a shower and bed!
