Weekend Projects

We now have running water in our kitchen!!!! Daryl got the new sink and dishwasher hooked up this weekend, so we no longer have to wash our dishes in the bathroom sink. The granite on the main counter top is also in.
Since our kitchen is now fully functioning, we are going to take a break from it so that we can build Aubrie's play set in the back yard. (mainly we have some lighting and tiling left to do in the kitchen). We also want to get the fence up in the back yard since Barron does not care for his leash. We started building the play set last night in the family room. The number of parts and pieces is ridiculous. After 3+ hours of working, all we have is a fort roof and a couple ladders.

Weekend Updates

Yes it is mid April in New York and Aubrie spent the weekend swimming in the back yard. A bit crazy, but temps were in the high 70's/low 80's...this better not be a sign of things to come this summer, or I will be one miserable pregnant woman!
On another note, while Aubrie was enjoying the outdoors, Daryl was busy working on the kitchen remodel. All of the cabinets are in and the stove, microwave and refrigerator are working. Unfortunately we still do not have plumbing in the kitchen. Hopefully by the end of the week.

It's A Boy!

Baby kicking Mommy...
Baby waving Hi!

Much to Aubrie's dismay, she is getting a baby brother not a baby sister. At this point in time, she is in denial, and will tell anyone who asks that we don't know what kind of baby we are getting. We have about 16 weeks to convince her that a baby brother is a good thing...she won't have to share her princesses!

Looks like we need to start buying blue clothes...just about everything we have for a baby is pink! More ultrasound pictures to come soon.

Aubrie made her first trip to the emergency room today. After tripping on the first stair outside our house, she went head first into the second stair, leaving a very bloody hole in her forehead. 3+ hours and some dermabond later, she seems no worse for the wear.

Daddy's Breaking the Kitchen...Again


We started the major part of our kitchen renovation this weekend. Ripping out upper cabinets and sofits, taking the linoleum off the walls (who does that), peeling the wall paper off the remaining walls, and re-dry walling. Unfortunately Aubrie does not care for demolition, she gets very upset whenever daddy "breaks" something. I guess she will have to get used to it if she is going to live in the same house as Daryl.
