Slower Pace

I will am definitely moving at a slower pace these days.  I guess at 38 weeks pregnant, that is to be expected.  Still, I am keeping as active as possible and even took Moose to the Animal Orphanage 5K in Old Town.  I have run the race with Gauge a few times and done pretty well.  Today, Moose and I just walked.  I saved my race number for Ian's baby book, even though I wasn't really racing.

Ian's nursery is now finished, other than three animal pictures that I am waiting on (pig, cow, and sheep).  I made some little bookshelves modeled after the IKEA spice rack book shelves that my sister did for Ella.  Ian was very lucky to get so many awesome books at his shower and I needed a place to display them and have them be accessible.

Now we are just waiting for him to arrive!

It is perfect weather for a baby.  I can't wait to enjoy walks with him.  For now though, I am loving the weather.

The dogs in the yard all day,

Bare feet and green grass,

Walks in the woods,

Dirty dogs,

that have to swim to clean up......poor Gauge.


  1. Yay, a new post! I'm glad to hear that you walked, rather than ran the 5K. Good grief, you are so healthy! Really, it's wonderful. Good job on the bookshelves. They look great. And I see you put up the paper lanterns from the shower in the nursery, too. Sweet! Oh, we need close-ups of the animal pictures so we can see what they say. I zoomed in enough to be able to read the horsey one. :-)

  2. Jen, those bookshelves look great! You whipped those right out! You look fabulous... although I know how uncomfortable you feel! It will be so lovely to have your body back to all your own and have Ian in your arms! I can't wait to meet him!!!
