Merrily we Roll Along

Lots has been accomplished this week! I'm finally feeling like we're making some progress toward preparing for Baby M, and that makes me a very happy momma-to-be. To catch you up, here's what's been going on at our household this week:

* We started the week with a visit to a pick-your-own farm in the area and enjoyed being surrounded by the sights and smells of fall. We spent some time picking a variety of apples, some beets and a bag full of spinach. And we topped it off with a glass of apple cider that was nowhere near as good as the apple cider from White House Farms.

* Jeremy spent most of his weekend cleaning out the music room and making way for baby. And we even purchased a chair that we've been eyeing for the nursery. It's nice and bouncy, and we've already spent time breaking it in. Let's just hope the crib and dresser we've ordered all fit nicely into this tiny, tiny space!

* We've started the tedious and stressful process of looking for daycare. Between the two of us, we've called about 25 centers and family providers and we only have three prospects we plan to visit. It's a competitive market around here, and although we're not looking for care until May/June, most spots are already filled. I think I might start playing the lottery in hopes of becoming a stay-at-home mom one of these days ...

* And finally, my uterus is growing. (Is this TMI?) I've had two days of some pretty uncomfortable growing pains and lower back pain. But it's all worth it, I know. Just like we're making room for baby, so is my uterus. And this week it has to make way for a spaghetti squash-sized Baby M. (All this comparing to vegetables and fruit has made grocery shopping VERY interesting these days.)
