June Lorenz Family Check-In

Sorry for the delay in posting friends! I am just getting used to the blogging world. In early May, Tom and I headed up to Toledo for our baby shower. We had a great time! I spent the day with the gals at our baby shower, while Tom and the guys had their diaper party. Suffice it to say we have a TON of diapers and wipes, and wonderful supplies for Baby Lorenz. We are so grateful to have such wonderful family and friends!

Tom and I are busy getting the house ready for baby's arrival. We were originally moving to a bigger house in the park, but that plan is not moving forward due to a lack of insulation! Thus, we have been running around organizing and flip-flopping rooms. I'm thinking I should request bed rest from the doctor, not to get me out of actual work, but to get me out of the housework! Just kidding. Tom's dad came down, and between him and Tom, they have been busy bees, painting our room, moving furniture, and a host of other chores. I've been the laundry diva. This weekend, my goal is to wash all of the baby clothes. Am I the only one who is a little freaked out about putting these tiny clothes in the washer? I feel like I am going to lose those little onesies in the big washer!

I am starting to be physically done with being pregnant. My feet and hands are swollen. I had heard of friends needing to take off their rings. I was excited to not have to deal with this, and all of sudden, my ring finger looks like a sausage! The doctor says I am experiencing "normal swelling." Ew. I am just excited to meet this little girl! I can't wait to see what she looks like and to see Tom hold her. Imagine big Tom with a teeny baby-how cute!

More to come soon, with pictures of the nursery and the "redecorated" house! The dog and cat can definitely sense a change is in the air!
