36 weeks!

Today was an exciting day-- Nathan and I went to see the OB for my 36 week checkup. There is something about hitting the 9 month mark that makes it all feel very real. I don't understand the whole 9-10 month pregnancy concept and the weeks make it even more confusing....bottom line: we are getting close! If I have Carson when I had Alex, we are less than 2 weeks away!

We were able to see him today via sonogram which was very cool! It's such a different view than the 16 or 20 week sonogram because now the baby is fully developed. We were only able to see large parts on the screen and it was much harder to decipher what we were actually looking at. We saw him in a "dive position." His head was fully down and in a he's ready to go.

According to the doc, Carson is 6lbs. 9oz which puts him in the 63% for weight. I am not dilated or effaced yet so although he is locked and loaded, my body hasn't started the next steps yet.
It was a very exciting appointment and now they are weekly, so check back on Thursday for the next update.

We are off for a date night tonight- yeah! We are going to Abacus off McKinney Ave. in downtown Dallas. Abacus was created by Kent Rathbun, from Top Chef, so we are looking forward to a relaxing and faaaancy evening.

Alex's Big Girl Room

One down, one to go...
Alex's room is finished! When she saw her new furniture she said over and over "It's just so wonderful!" She was sweet to be so excited over something that really isn't too exciting for a three year old.
Carson's room is painted and we are in the process of getting it all ready. I'll post pics once it's ready to go. We had a blast working on "the kids' rooms" (it's crazy to write that!)

A special thank you to YaYa and B.B. (my parents) for watching Alex for most of the the weekend! I know she had a blast at "the mouse place" (Chuck E. Cheese) and endless hours in the pool! I don't know how we would have painted, moved furniture and handled all of the chaos with her running around. We did get a really cute picture of her in infant car seat. She said, "Look at me, I'm the baby." So, I guess she's getting ready too!
