Slowly but surely

Here is a little update on the house :) Slowly but surely we are moving in the right direction. If this doesn't send Gary and I to the looney bin we will be in good shape. Everything has been demo'd and now they are just working on getting it all put back together. We have run into a few small problems so far. The flooring in the Hallway was uneven so they stripped that down to the bare bones and rebuilt the floor- $. There was paneling in the Living room and Davis's room that was disguised as actual sheet rock. That was taken down and insulation and sheet rock put up-$. Our last little hiccup has come in the form of plumbing issues. Oh joy! The plumbing in the hall bath has to be completely redone and a few things tweaked in the master- $$$
We are really hoping that is the last of the issues, fingers crossed!!(cross them people!)
Onto the pictures!!

We had 9 trees taken down this week. Hello beautiful house!! It looks so much better. The huge trees on the corners of the house were not only a hazard but crowded the house so much. I'm in love with how open in is now. Thanks Millers Tree Service!

There was a huge tree right there in front of me. Im most excited about this one being gone. It was LARGE and overbearing
three trees came down here two on the outside of the fence and one on the inside where the pool is.

No trees cut down here but they trimmed up a lot of limbs that were crowding our storage shed

This is the front of the house on the right hand corner. There were two really large hickorys here. So glad to see them go. It opens it up so much and now Walker will have some pretty light coming through his windows :) {that is his room on the top corner }

Walking in through the carport into the Living room. we now have pretty walls and a nice built in for the tv.

Nice big deck in the works! New roof goes on tomorrow which will give us a covered deck looking out over the pool

Weird built in be gone! New built in coming soon :)

They are working on painting our room right now. The color on the wall with the window is the new color :) This room still needs a lot. As does the master bath

Looking out from the Master

Kitchen, loving this color. They are laying the tile this weekend so we can get the cabinets installed next week along with the appliances.

The foyer has a nice new coat of paint. I have big plans for this little area. I'm so excited to have a true foyer. To the right is the dining room, to the left the playroom. If you keep walking straight you go into the Living room

Down stairs bath. Which if you remember it was purple with green laminate floor. Purple and green be gone! A new vanity, toilet, and flooring went in here. Still a few more finishing touches to do but we are making progress people

Sweet Walkers room. Can I just tell you how obsessed I am with this paint color?! Perfect perfect shade of navy. This is just one coat. Cannot wait to make this a perfect little space for him. {Hey Davis}

Oh and this lovely mess?? Well this is the hall bath I was telling you about. Sigh. All new plumbing coming tomorrow! Neither the master or the hall bath have had much done other than demo because of the plumbing issues. Once these are resolved in the next 2 days they are hitting the ground running getting these finished.

I had to include this picture because I think the sky looks so cool and spookey with the moss blowing on the trees! I'm thinking we will have a Halloween party in October
We still have a long way to go but if everything goes as planned we should be in by the first week in February. I'm so ready!

Hello Third Trimester!!

Admittedly I am not good at the every week updates...we've got a lot going on right now I'm lucky to keep my head above water most days! ha

So strange to me I feel like in this picture I don't look as big as I am. I feel huge and am really starting to have some serious back ache and round ligament pain. Both of which are keeping me up most of the night. Add in the remodel of our new house and I am just about at my wits end. You've been warned people...stay out of my way. I'm just so ready to be in our new house and get settled and ready for sweet Walker. I feel like we are running out of time and it is making me a little anxious. We are (fingers crossed) hoping to be in the house in the next few weeks. Cheers to that!

How Far Along:28 weeks

Size of Baby: large ;) seriously though I swear he kicked me in the kidneys the other night. Play nice Walker 

Total Weight Gain: None yet...but dangerously close! ha

Gender: BOY! Walker Hanson

Movement: See above. He moves all of the time. I never have to stop and think when was the last time I felt him move?? He lets me know he is there all day and night. Gary just laughs when we lay in bed at night because its like he is dancing in there. I love every kick and roll I feel. Even when it feels like he is trying to break my bottom rib off ;)

Sleep: Awful. Just awful. SN: we need a king size bed. I think that is part of the problem. I need my personal space and G just isn't sharing the bed to well these days.

Maternity Clothes: All maternity bottoms but the tops and tunics are a mix

Signs of Labor/Symptoms: Thankfully we are back in the clear! At my last drs appt everything checked out beautifully. My cervix is much much better! Dr. D seems to think it will be smooth sailing from here on out. Wahoo

Bellybutton: In

Cravings: Still love salads. and coke floats. I may or may not indulge in one almost daily

Here is just a little update on the reigning prince ;)
Davis is about to turn 3, is fun loving, strong willed, crazy, funny, and everything we could ever want. I will do a full post on him for his 3rd Birthday. We are gearing up for a fun filled Spiderman filled day!
