Way Away From Here...

I'm kinda feeling like it'd be great to just not be here right now.

I have a two year old hollering at/for me from the other room because she apparently doesn't believe that sleep is conducive to healthy growth. Well, what the hey, kid, stay up all night! Don't forget to drink your coffee to give you that boost! You're gonna want it. Oh and I heard Adult Swim has good programming.

Le sigh. I'm all out of sarcasm.

SO. The last time I updated this, I was very, very early pregnant. And I don't think I was telling people at that point. Mostly for fear of another miscarriage. (Two in one year kinda makes you leery.) BUT as it turns out, we are still incubating a very healthy and big boy who is due to make his appearance July 2, 2011. (As if he really cares what date my OB has picked out.) As I type, I am seven months pregnant. And wow.

Seven months pregnant. I have two months left to go until he is considered fully baked and could pop out at any minute.

Things are not quite in order. We're rearranging bedrooms. First of all, Pookie will have the bigger room (formerly a junk room) - once we get around to cleaning it out, that is. She also has our old full size bed because we came to realize that, with a toddler in the house, a full size bed is just suddenly NOT big enough. Hence, our lovely queen size mattress. Which means that Bean (our affectionate nickname for the new booger) will have Pookie's old crib and changing table set. I'm undecided about her dresser, though... It all matches, and her dresser also matches the bookshelf my uncle made for her... Ahhh but I digress.

I've decided how to decorate the nursery, at the very least! Mr. and Mrs. Pond Nursery-to-Go Set (: It's a 10-piece set that comes with the bedding, wall hangings, a valance, and a diaper stacker. And I happen to think it's adorable. I've seen various prices online; so far the cheapest (of course) is Wal-Mart. Which is convenient cuz that's where I've set up my registry. I don't wanna be greedy and ask for a lot of big expensive things so, just like last time, I picked out a bunch of inexpensive gifts - but I did throw on the co sleeper and travel set... ya know. Just in case ;) I get the feeling, though, that the registry will not be used... just like last time. I spose we shall see.

AND we have also found Pookie's new bedroom set... we think. We've picked InStyle Candi Bed in a Bag. The good thing about it is that we can throw Dora pillows and posters up to match, and when she outgrows Dora, we'll take it out and turn it into an older girls' room... withOUT buying all new bedding! Thanks to one of my coworkers for THAT idea!

I'm pretty excited about all these changes and redecorating. It's a good distraction from the fact that in just a few months, our lives are going to be all turned upside down... again. Except this time it'll be Pooker's life too. I'm excited... and a bit anxious. Honestly, I know I've done all this before, but I feel like I'm starting ALL over. I don't know what to expect!

Sigh. As one of my friends posted as her Facebook status this evening... Que sera sera.

Whatever will be will be.

Signing off, loved ones. Hope I can keep updating more often. It's a good outlet.

(P.S. I think Pookmonster is down for the count! Hurrah!!)
