I should just turn this into a photo blog already.
I hope you all had a great holiday and a Happy New Year! Mine was busy, even with a whole week and a half off of work. We did get a couple of days alone while our houseguest left for a few days to see his sister, but then he came back with his girlfriend for over a week, so we were busy hanging out with them. We had a great time, but I have to say, when they left on January 3rd, I was SO happy to have an empty house. We have had house guests or been out of town EVERY weekend since HALLOWEEN!!!! I'm ready to be a loner for a little while.
Jeremy and I did have a nice Christmas eve. We ventured out to Babies R Us because I had a coupon I wanted to use thet expired that day. By the time we got out there, Jeremy informed me we were NOT coming back out there again, so we needed to get as much stuff off of our registry as we could. So the Bean made out like a bandit that day with a new crib mattress, a carseat, a snap-n-go and a Maclaren stroller (with anti-finger chopping kit attached). Once we get the Bob jogger (not for a couple of months), we will be one of those couples with THREE strollers. Never thought I would become that person, but I have.
Christmas day, J and I spent the entire day indoors eating and watching TV alone. It was great. He spoiled me to death (new camera, snow boots, sling for the bean, awesome baby book from etsy.com, a new fuzzy bathrobe, slippers) he's way too good to me.

Two days after Christmas, we met our friends up in NYC for a one night, two day quick trip to the city. It was my first time in the Big Apple, and even though it was one of the coldest, windiest days of the year, we still had a great time. Although I was exhausted by the time we were done.
I really need to invest in a maternity coat.

Of course, there are a million more pictures, but I'll keep it short.
The next few days we just hung out at the house with our friends. I did manage to get a little more of the nursery accomplished, I'll post pictures of that later. Unfortunately, we didn't do anything for New Years eve since we all got sick after running around New York in the cold weather. I've found out that a cold takes a lot longer to get over when you are 8 months pregnant.
Other than that, just back to work, which is starting to take a lot out of me. It's getting to the point where I am looking forward to the 12 weeks of maternity leave almost as much at meeting the Bean. Not quite, but almost. :)
I'm still feeling good. I'm just getting to the point of feeling uncomfortable lately, but it could be a lot worse. I haven't taken any good belly shots for a couple of weeks. Here is my last one from 2 weeks ago.
Hope you are all having a great New Year!!! My only "resolution" right now is to try and update this thing more often.
