It's the half-time show!

On Saturday I officially passed into the second half of the pregnancy. Woo hoo! Of course, as Mommy, Esq. told me, the first half went by fairly quickly but I already feel like it will be soooo long until March. Good thing I have lots to keep me occupied until then:
  1. Christmas shopping. Yes, I've already starting my Christmas shopping and have even finished with DH. I also managed to pick up some stocking stuffers this weekend so I am feeling ahead of the game.
  2. Nesting. There's always more to be organized and cleaned out, no? We're in pretty good shape but perhaps another run at my closet would be good. Or I can sit DH down and go through his clothes. Yeah, that would be good!
  3. Decorating the nursery. I have settled on a theme for the nursery. Nothing too theme-y. I always hating those Trading Spaces where they did a room entirely in a theme. Even if it's for a kid you still want it to be versatile. I've ordered a bunch of prints from the UK for the room (fancy) and will use those as inspiration for paint colors, etc. That means another job for DH which he loves.
  4. Educating myself. DH and I will have to go for tour of the hospital, birthing class and perhaps a few other first time parent classes. Plus it's a great way to meet other expectant parents. Perhaps DH will find another rabid Yankees fan to bond with. I also need to learn more about the first few months and breastfeeding. I haven't heard a "it's a snap" comment yet about breastfeeding. How's that for nature?
  5. Watching lots of TV. Yes, I will enjoy my evenings while I still have them. Lots of lounging around and lavishing attention on Charlie. That dog will be so disappointed to be demoted from baby to dog!

Any other suggestions for me to while away the time?

I'm going with Flower Fairies. Here is the link to the site I bought prints from: They aren't the cute-sy Disney ones which is good.
