This picture has no significance. It's just cute. I love her cheeks and crazy bed head. She is always laying on one or both arms.
And we got a swing! I LOVE the swing, because Katie loves the swing.

I don't mind a bit though. Katie is so much fun!
So I only have a second to share some pics.
This is Marcus's fireman friend, Warren. He came by for a visit. Tomorrow he is retiring from the Air Force. So that will be Katie's first party!
And lots of sweet people from church have been bringing us delicious meals. Wednesday night some of the girls from my class came by with chicken spaghetti. YUM.
It was so good to see them too. Aren't they cute?!
We've been working at the new house today. A lot of stuff is moved over there. And it's starting to take shape. It is so frustrating to not be able to do anything. I am dying to get everything hung on the walls and decorated. Our families have been the hugest help.

I went to the new house for the first time since coming home from the hospital. It is really coming along. We will be living there by next week. I can't wait to just have one house and have my husband back too. He has been super busy over there!
This is the entry. I still need to get a new light fixture. The gold is not working for me.
The walls are pink and the ceiling is green. I am standing in what will be the dining room.
All the wood floors are done and the base boards and trim are in too. They were all getting painted today.
And lots of you keep asking to see the nursery.
I can't wait to get this thing decorated. Katie didn't seem to mind though. Today was her first time to see her new house.
Today we went to Target, but I didn't get a picture.
And this is her getting her first bath. We can't dunk her until her belly button thing-a-ma-jig comes off.

The mantle is already at the new house, so the fire place looks nekkid.
Then, TA-DA, a baby!
(who just started reading this blog yesterday. I guess I finally have a subject she is interested in)
And Marcus also had to feed her formula for her 2nd feeding, because I was so out of it. I couldn't even hold her.

And here is the guest room with some stuff in it. It's kind of my staging area of all my decorating things. Now that all the floors are done I can start putting things in other rooms too.
I did start to decorate the tops of my kitchen cabinets:
And I got these cute knobs at Hobby Lobby for only $1.50 each!
I am starting to feel like we might, possibly, be able to finish this project!
First a house update:
The carpet is in the bedrooms. Yay! I started carrying things over to the house today since I had a floor to put it on now.
This is the guest room:
And all the tile is laid, but just needs to be grouted. That will happen on Monday too.
And we ordered all our appliances yesterday and they will also be in on Monday. I guess Monday will kind of feel like Christmas!

I haven't done a belly pic in a while and it's GIANT!
Yesterday we went to church, worked on the new house a tiny bit, then cooked out at my brother-in-law's house.
I was already wondering who could watch Katie next year so we can go see fireworks.
I love them!
I love it so far!
I need a magic wand!
