Living Room Update

Even though BH isn't due until August, it's never too early to start preparing the house.

So on Saturday, Chris and I drove around Houston on the hunt for a nursery chair.

We came back with a living room rug.
I guess we'll slowly ease into this parent-hood thing.

My mom came over to help me move the old rug out and the new rug in. In the middle of that, I thought to snap a photo:
That's our cleared out living room and our wonderful hard-wood floor.

While this was going on in the living room, Chris and my dad were busy wiring electricity to the backyard. Again, not sure how this goes on the "things we need to do before baby arrives" list, but it IS something we've wanted to do for a while.

Here's a photo of my dad, working on the wiring from the inside:
See where the light from the window doesn't show you what's outside? Well, this is what was outside:
Chris, working on the wiring from the outside!

It was funny to see them working on either side of the wall... just a shame that the iPhone camera couldn't pick that up in one photo!

Oh, and the living room rug? It's down and we're LOVING it. My dear friend, Hedi, gave me a piece of baby furniture that is now sitting on that new living room rug:
I snapped this photo and texted it to Laura and Jojo, "this just got REAL." Crazy to think that in a 5 months we'll have to  have all our house projects done... because we'll have a new little roommate!
