Back again

Well, it's been a long time again. Feeling pretty busy, although I guess by most standards I'm really not that busy. Tim, Kaylin, and I have been living with my parents for about a month and a half now, which has its ups and downs. Our parents have been very generous but we're looking forward to having our own space again. (As I'm sure they are too.)

Work on the house began in the middle of September (we finally closed Sep. 9th, after many complications) and has been moving along steadily. Although, with the way things look, we'll probably be here at my parents when the baby is born. The house has been gutted, so until we have the new flooring and paint in, we don't want to be living there. We've already accepted the fact that we won't have a kitchen for a while after we've moved in, but we have a makeshift one in the garage for the time being. Tim and his dad put in a fridge, oven and sink out there, even some cabinets and countertop, so that will have to work for awhile. It'll be interesting to have a newborn and a toddler in the mix once we move in. We have lots of help though, so that's good.
I'll post some pics later on of the house in it's current state.

And because life seems so upside down and busy right now, the thought of having a baby in two weeks is just unbelievable! We haven't done much to prepare, and that's starting to scare me a bit! We don't have a name or even a nursery and Tim and I hardly see each other, so we haven't had much time to talk about the impending birth and arrival of our son, much less time to get things done for him. I've gotten a few things for him (diapers, onesies, etc.) in the last week, but it's still very unorganized and just sitting in bags out in the car. I haven't packed for the hospital, aghh! Very different from the first time around! I don't know what we'll do if he comes early. I definitely need the two weeks to get things more under control. At least i've been healthy and feeling good. With Kaylin I remember being tired all the time at this point, and unable to move around very easily. (Although that could've been around the time that I was already a week late.)

On the topic of the baby's name, we have been mulling around a few names, and seem to be down to two that we like more than any of the others we have talked about. Maybe you all can give us your opinions...I've been having a hard time with it, though because I don't completely love either of them, and it's hard to picture either of them as my son's name. Maybe we'll just have to see what fits when he's born. Anyway, the names are Dylan and Logan. My mom and Tim lean toward Dylan, and I go back and forth between the two.

Okay, I need to sign off now to get started on dinner, but i'll try to be better about updating this, especially as it gets closer to my due date. I also wanted to put some belly pics on here, so we'll see.
