34 Weeks

We are in week 34 of pregnancy. 
I ended up with just 4 sessions of physical therapy for my sacroiliac joint pain.  The PT had recommended a maternity belt as well which has done wonders.  My main issue now is lack of sleep.  I am up throughout the night and cannot get comfortable.  I've tried our bed, guest room bed, baby room Lazyboy and the floor.  Just call me the wanderer.  And wouldn't you know, I normally can't sleep well at naptime either.  Anyone have good under eye concealer recommendations?!

Attic Reno 12

Much has transpired on our attic project since our last post.  We worked on trim.  Corner pieces were primed and painted in addition to all the trim work, of course.  We tackled the corner pieces on a Saturday morning/afternoon.

 Justin also worked on the closet drawer and cubby areas to get them installed prior to the carpet arrival.

 Additionally, Justin built and installed a bookcase that sits in the sitting area.
Then came carpet removal of existing carpet in the hallway, stairs and porch.  We had decided to replace all the carpet and have one carpet throughout the house beginning from the attic and making its way down the step to the ground floor.

 The porch carpet had no padding underneath making for a rough play space for Kale.  We were excited to make this area more comfy and inviting.

As if we didn't already have enough work on our hands, we decided to paint the porch too before the new carpet came in.  Many thanks to D's parents for help with carpet removal and painting!  (This baby is sure to love DIY with all the painting and home improvement I've been involved with while pregnant!  Note lovely face mask!!!)
 Carpet arrived yesterday.  We love it and are so glad to not have to worry about stepping on tack strips going up and down the stairs anymore!!
 The attic now feels more like a room.  Just a few finishing touches in the bathroom and the closet spaces and it will be complete.
 And the porch.  As soon as Kale was up from his nap yesterday and the carpet layers had left, he was moving his guitars back out to his area!!!
