Six months seems like forever and no time at all! I don’t want to wish time away – especially since I love the holiday season, quality time with Danny and sleep – but I can’t wait to meet our little man. It becomes more real every day and we both are anxious to hold him and see who he looks like. As we wait, I’m distracting myself with the nursery. We emptied the room and painted the walls this weekend. The wall collage items are mostly collected and Danny is set to finish the dresser this week. I’m doing my best to hold out for a sale on the crib but I’m can hardly wait to see the room put together. And even though I dread an abundance of toys, I simply couldn’t resist getting Lucas his first stuffed buddy yesterday during a Target run. Chester (named by Danny) was too cute to resist and his star accents match our theme so it seemed meant to be.
