Really??!! It's hard to believe that this is almost the end. By tomorrow, I can officially say I will have a baby sometime around the end of next month (March). In a way, time has flown by, and now, it's just the waiting game. I am so ready to see and hold our sweet baby boy; I'm hoping February will fly by b/c we have so much going on! This month is full of work, our baby classes, and baby showers--lots of fun stuff to look forward to! I can tell that I am not doing as well at work as I usually do-- I just don't have as much energy to plan really creative lessons, and I don't have as much patience with the high-schoolers as usual. I try to warn them on the days when I feel extra tired and pregnant, and they are usually on their best behavior for me on those days. I will be ready for maternity leave to come--I love marking each day off my desk calendar that gets me closer to that day. Sometimes I make myself wait just so I can mark a few days off in a row; somehow that makes me feel better! Here's are semi-nursery inspiration. Our walls are a little darker, and our crib is different, but a similar idea. My mom is making the bedding, and I'm hoping I get it for my shower gift next weekend. Next, we have to sew some curtains and find a rug.
