The massage was on my back and sides. She started with a lot of work on my neck and shoulders. I rotated on to both sides and she worked on my back, legs, and did more work on my shoulders. There is no time on my stomach or a bed with the belly cut out - I think I've read that it's not healthy for a pregnant woman to be on her stomach. I'm not sure. Either way, the 90 minutes went quickly!
Steve did a lot of driving back and forth today between his Alpharetta office and Buckhead. He has closings downtown that he has to sit in on and they're all preparing for the permanent transition to Buckhead. His class on Tuesday nights is pretty pointless - they do a lot of talking about technology, but none of it is practical for business. I think the IT guys in the class do most of the talking and everyone else just sits there.
I fly out tomorrow morning for Florida! Yeah!

This is the changing table (and yes, a fake baby) with one of our shelves over it. It's one of the first things you come to in the room. I'm not sure yet if I want to use the shelf for practical or pretty things.
The best glider in the whole world! I come in here and rock, even without the baby! Mom and Dad got us this when they were down here visiting, and I love it! I'm still getting used to all of the pink - it's the only color of blanket that we have. :) This glider is on the corner, between the changing table and the window.
An example of the wall art we bought online. Hr name came with some decorative polka-dots, but I'm using them sparingly...the pink and green looked different online then it does in person, and the green is very lime!
Yesterday, we bought a dresser to keep in the closet. It's cute and white, but we didn't include any pictures. We'll update again when we have more!

She is a lot more active recently; she pretty much sits constantly right under my ribs. It's awkward when I'm sitting down, but not painful. I just try to shove her back down when she moves too high. Today I could finally tell that a rib or heel was sticking out. It's the first time that I've been able to tell an actually body part instead of just bumps.
Steve's foot is healing nicely. He's changing the bandages every day and trying not to take the heavy pain pills. I think he's surviving so far.

Tomorrow, Steve has surgery to remove a wart from the bottom of his foot. I'm taking off work to drive him to and from the appointment. With mom and I both here, he should be sufficiently taken care of. I owe him big time after my first trimester. :)
It was about 70 degrees the day we made it out to the beach. It was a little too breezy to be out in just bathing suits, but still absolutely gorgeous.

Here are my favorites:
- "Isabella - a little blessing from above, filling our hearts with sunshine, giggles and love."
- "Bubble gum, jump rope, giggles & curls; fairytale wishes make up little girls"
- "Cuddles, kisses, snuggles & love - that's what baby girls are made of"
- "Cuddle bug - bundle of joy - cutie patootie - peek-a-boo - nighty-night - sweet pea - hugs & kisses - whaaaa! - tickle toes - lullaby baby - too cute - da-da - cutie pie"
I think the "Bubble gum..." one is my top choice. I'm going to wait until Steve gets home to see what he thinks, but I'm really happy about finding ones that are so inexpensive.

Here's our driver. His name was Raasman, and he was really funny. He sang the entire time and gave all the women nicknames. When he called one woman "Lela," which means "light," I was really looking forward to hearing mine. Oh well! He called me "Rohbob" which apparently is like a local guitar over there. I knew I wasn't lucky enough to get the pretty name!
These are a couple of shots from our car...
I wish I could show better angles of how our car was sliding down the dunes. The woman next to me actually threw up in the car! It was not pleasant, but overall, we loved it! Here's a picture of our whole team after we stopped for a break.

Even Harley was extremely interested in the process. Butters slept downstairs and Harley constantly tried to lay in our laps while we were screwing pieces together.
And the semi-final product...
It was awesome to get it more settled and be able to unpack some of the supplies we've gotten so far. We were able to store the blankets and toys beneath the changing table and separate all of the clothes we got from people. Yeah for girly things!
