Ramblings of a busy weekend

Sunday nights are usually filled with busy work and a little anxiety for the work week ahead- instead- tonight, I am watching TV after a busy, but fun day of organizing and hanging out with my Matty- and I don't have to worry about work tomorrow. It's nice. Mind you- I have a busy week ahead of me- of appointments and things to do. But it's so nice to know that the constant standing and 8 hours on my feet and on my 'best behaviour' is over!

On Saturday my friend, Hope came over to do a maternity photo shoot. It was great- and a little relaxing- in an awkward way :)  But it was nice- to get pictures done- to make sure I have tons of memories from this pregnancy, and for Charlotte to see when she grows up. The pictures weren't your typical maternity shots- they were more lifestyle shots- pics of Matt and I on the couch, cuddling, in the nursery- nice family pictures. It would have been so wonderful to have Noah there... 19 months old... all excited about his baby sister. But instead- since that is impossible, no matter how hard I want it-- Milton- Noah's frog was in some shots!  I should be getting the pictures in a couple weeks- I'll post a few once I do.  I'm generally not a big fan of photos of myself- but hopefully there will be a few I don't mind sharing!

I know it is still October- but I am pretty much done Christmas shopping... and wrapping. There are a few reasons- I felt I needed to shop now because 1. I'll have a newborn during regular shopping time 2. money is always tight in December- so i though i should relieve that a little. 3. I had some time :) . The reason they are now mostly wrapped.. is because I've been storing them in the spare bedroom... and my Mum arrives next week..... I figure she might want a bed to sleep in!!

I would say that I look forward to having a nice sleep in tomorrow.. but I haven't been able to sleep many hours in a row recently.. laying still after a while- really hurts. and I've been having strange dreams. But- it's nice to know that I can nap whenever I want!

There you are.. ramblings from a busy, productive weekend.

3 weeks Tuesday and Charlotte will be here... wow.. seems so soon-but how I wish it were tomorrow!
