Believe it or not, we are now in the THIRD trimester of this pregnancy! It sure feels like time is flying right on by! This past weekend we had a little garage sale and made a little money. We also started working on the getting the nursery ready. Prior to this, the third room had served as my husband's office/guest room for his sister. In fact, we all referred to it as "Aunt Trinka's Room". LOL! There is a lot of stuff to get cleared out in there but we are making some headway. I got the few clothes we have washed, folded and put away. I got his changing area set up and all the cloth diapers stuffed, folded, sorted, organized and put in the drawers so we are ready to roll. I must admit I still feel nervous when I look at the cloth diapers but we are committed to using them 100% of the time. I also know that we will find certain ones that work better and ones we prefer etc.... I know we will have some trial and error and that I will probably make some mistakes! LOL! But I have spent $200 and that should diaper our baby until he potty trains!
The rest of the weekend was busy. In between the garage sale and nursery stuff I did 7 loads of laundry, we cleaned, took a bunch of stuff to Goodwill, had church and then we took the girls to a birthday party. They had such a fun time! It was for a 7 year old boy. He had his party at a bowling alley. It was really a nice little party!
Tomorrow the Genius has her next laser surgery. After this she should just have one more and then they are taking a break til she is older. When she is older they will do another surgery where they go in and cut out all her scar tissue, sew it up and then treat that new scar with more laser treatments. I hate that she has to go through this but I am glad she is getting a break. Both girls get nervous about the surgeries. The Hippie worries about Sissy and Sissy gets scared and wants her little sister to be there with her. Plus the Genius hates that the surgeries turn her nose purple and lots of people ask what happened.
Back to some happy news...we have decided to plan our first real vacation in over TWO years!!! We are going to go to Hilton Head with my parents and sister!!! A whole week at the beach before the baby comes!!! I am so very excited for two reasons.
1. It's the beach and that is my absolute favorite kind of vacation!
2. I really wanted to do one more thing with the girls before their brother is born.
We have so many neat things coming up before our vacation too! We have a date in a few weeks, my baby shower!!!!!!!!, some swim lessons for the girls and I am sure some other stuff too.
For now I better get off and get our Monday going. Lots to do today!
Have a great day!!!

I want to see pics of the room! I packed my hospital bag yesterday :) Getting close! You'll do great with the cloth diapers. Did you get the liners for them (they look like drier sheets)? I HIGHLY recommend them. If little guy poops, you just throw thew liner away (or you can wash them if they just wet on them). Makes changing poopy diapers much easier and less prep before washing them. Hope Kayla's surgery goes smoothly!
