Just within the last week, Emma's answer to everything has stopped being "No" and she has started throwing out some "Yeahs" only it isn't "yeah" but "yeeeee-aaaaaaaah". It is nice and long and drawn out like a true little Southern girl. It is too cute to hear but nice that we don't have to hear "no" all the time especially when she really means "yes" about half the time.
I need a new photo of the belly but just to update, I did have my 34 week appointment last Thursday. Of course, I waited over an hour to see the nurse practitioner and then spent maybe 5-10 minutes with her. I am not going to complain about the actual time with the NP because that just means, we continue to chug along with a nice, boring pregnancy. Bottom line: heartbeat was perfect, Junior is measuring perfect and I will see them again one week from this Thursday. After that, it will be weekly appointments until this little guy arrives. Brad has finished painting his room other than some little touch-ups. We also got the chair rail, which needs to be installed. However, before that is done, Brad is going to finish up Emma's closet and shelving. We also got Emma some new big girl furniture over the weekend, which should be delivered in about 2-3 weeks. I am not sure when we'll be brave enough to try out the bed but at some point in the not too distant future, it will be necessary since Junior is inheriting her crib. Our biggest concern is waking up at 2 am to find her standing at our bedside going "Hi Momma, Hi Dada". That is about all the excitement from here at the moment.
