We are officially full term. Which means we are now in the waiting game – eating spicy foods, walking a ton, eating pineapple, whatever we can do to try to get Everett here naturally we’re doing, but it looks like he’s going to wait until we induce Tuesday to make his appearance (so much like his sister in that regard). However, having a little extra time isn’t all bad (especially since I’ve had a bit of a cold that I want gone before baby comes) and I am in SUPER nesting mode.
We decided (on a whim) to redo the dining room yesterday and it turned out really good. We brought a lot more color into the space and really livened it up. It’s the first thing you see in our house so now I’m so excited to have it updated.
Then with 2 babies – I need my hands free so I went and bought this new diaper backpacknew diaper backpack. I had a backpack when Kenzie was first born and it was nice but frustrating because the zipper stuck and didn’t open fully. plus there weren’t enough pockets. This new backpack has a separate area for changing stuff, bottles, water bottles, quick access, and the main pocket zipper goes all the way to the bottom so you can see EVERYTHING thats in the main section. I LOVE IT. Plus it evenly distributes the weight on my shoulders so I can focus on babies. AND it has hooks to attach to your stroller handle so that it doesn’t take up the storage spot at the bottom (which means more room for shopping bags. WOOT).
Lastly, I made a totally impromptu purchase…we bought a car! LOL. So my Ford Explorer has had a TON of issues over the last 2 years. I’ve replaced the A/C & heating systems, all brakes & pads & rotors TWICE, tires, the Nav system, and had 2 recalls. To say I was frustrated is an understatement. Then when I went to do my inspection/registration this year they told me I needed new tires. AGAIN. My tires are < 18 months old and I get them rotated every time I get an oil change. So I figured – mileage warranty on the tires right? WRONG. You have to have road hazard to qualify. Seriously? So they wouldn’t replace them. Rather than spend another $1500 on my 2013 car – I decided to buy a Nissan Rogue 2018 and I LOVE IT! I also get drove an Audi Q5 but it was a little too small for me, had a recall, and I was nervous about the increased maintenance costs. Ultimately I’m SUPER happy with my Nissan.
Now we just need a baby to put in it…come on Baby E!
