Mommy and daddy have been working hard this weekend to get my room all ready for me! My mom's favorite color is orange, so of course she had to incorporate that color into the room somehow...who would have guessed that all of the walls would be BRIGHT orange?! They don't have everything for me yet, but they are starting to get things. Mommy's glider to lull me to sleep and use when I am eating will go where the car seat is right now in the picture. The dresser/changing table will go on the blank wall you see pictured. I have two "closets" to put all of my stuff...the one of the left just has shelving and the one on the right has a bar to hang my clothes. They are very excited and can't wait to have everything they need for it! Mommy's also very proud of the table lamp she found at Home Depot that matches one of the pinks in my bedding exactly! Grandma and Grandpa (O'Neill) are working on some painted wooden cutouts to put on the walls to add a "custom" look to my room.
Mommy had another doctor appointment this past Monday and everything went great! She is doing well and has gained 12 lbs. so far...right on target! The doctor says that it appears that I am also growing well based on the size of mommy's uterus and my heart beat was 161. I decided to stay awake for this appointment! That last one she had was a long one and kept poking and proding me so I fell asleep by the time she actually saw the doctor. Mommy's also glad that I am already acing my tests....I couldn't have done any better on my Downs Syndrome and Trisomy 18 tests. Mommy's next appointment will be in another 4 weeks and it will be another boring one. Mommy's also participating in a Aquamom's class and it is helping her stay active and keep away the back pain. She's starting to get really excited for me to come and is starting to prepare my room!
