Introducing Thomas!

by Waterman981  

I've really been sucking at posting, and I think it's mostly due to the hassle of getting pictures ready. So I decided I'm just going to upload them to the gallery for now... Perhaps I'll add them to the posts later.

So...

Introducing Thomas Johnson!

Born at 10:24 PM, 8lbs 8oz, 19 inches long.

Catch up...

by Waterman981  

Well the nursery is done (mostly), baby is here, and I have not posted anything. So I'll fix that for a bit. First off is the nursery.

So the last time we mentioned the nursery we had re-caulked the wainscoting (bead board), and Katie repainted over it. In the end it worked out somewhat ok. It's still possibly flakey, but most of the problem areas are along the top, where he shouldn't be able to eat it for 6 years. &#59;) (And since it's not lead based paint of course, the effects would be minimal).

So I say mostly done above as there is minimal decoration. We didn't decide on Thomas until after he was born. So decoration will come.

Tomorrow is THE day.

The doctor has decided to induce labor tomorrow, May 30th. I'm excited, nervous, and down right scared to death. I have no idea what to expect, how much it's going to hurt (although according to my sister-in-law who had her baby on Saturday, it's not pleasant), or what, if any, complications will arise.

Someone please tell me I'm up for it. Not just the painful labor and delivery part, but the whole mommy thing. I always thought I'd be a great mom, but now that it's really real I'm starting to wonder.

Joss Whedon for the Win!

by ktanne  

Joss Whedon has long been my favorite screen writer/director. Ever since Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Though admittedly I didn't love the movie, the TV Show was one of my favorites. He just won my heart over again with Angel (which I actually didn't watch until I bought it on DVD), and even more so with Firefly and Serenity. Needless to say, I was super excited to learn that he was writing/directing The Avengers.

Friday night we saw the mostly highly anticipated movie of my life time, and I am happy to report, it was an absolute WIN! We loved it so much that I would like to go see it at least twice more before the baby comes. There was so much laughter in the theater that some of the actors lines could not be heard. The action was fantastic. The story was told well with the appropriate amount of drama. Well done, Joss. Well done!

Busy Week

by ktanne  

We've had a super busy week. After one or the other of us being sick for nearly a month we finally felt well enough to get some stuff done around the house. Monday we went to Ikea to get some dressers to use as nightstands. (Our bed is really tall.) Which had the glorious side effect of giving the two of us enough storage to use Mike's old dresser in the baby's room. Mike put the dressers together while I finished re-painting the seams in the beadboard that he had re-caulked (with the right kind of caulk). Tuesday, Mike went mountain biking with Jason, while I spent time with my parents. We didn't get home until after eight, so we just did some much needed housework. Wednesday we had our birthing class, which meant we didn't get home until nearly 10, then we finished the touch up paint in the baby's room. Thursday we went shopping for some Closetmaid fabric storage bins, which were a pain in the butt to find at the Wal-Mart. I ended up not liking any of the colors, so we didn't even buy any. When we got home, Mike hung up the curtain rod in the nursery then we finished organizing and moving our clothes around. Tonight we shall: get Mike a haircut, go up to his mom's house to help her with her sprinklers, then go out to dinner and a movie with friends. After what I'm sure will feel like too little sleep (because even 12 hours feels like too little sleep these days) I'll wake up, attempt to make myself pretty, and go to a baby shower for my sister-in-law and me!

The crib is coming next Friday so stay tuned for pictures of the finished nursery!

The Nursery is Stalled

by ktanne  

For those of you waiting with bated breath to see the pictures of the finished nursery, we have bad news. It might be a while. Sadly, upon applying the 'final' coat of white paint to the bead board, we realized that we used the wrong silicone to fill in the gaps. We've been frustrated, disappointed, and down-right pissed all last week trying to figure out how to remedy the situation. We've tried scraping and peeling it off, which has not worked. We tried ignoring it, which also didn't work. Now we are going to try to put a thin layer of paintable caulk on top of the non-paintable silicone. Honestly, if it doesn't work we'll just have to live with it, but neither of us is very happy with that scenario. So wish us the best of luck, and the energy to try again.
