a bitty baby BOY!

happy 2013 friends :-) i hope the new year finds you happy and healthy! i also hope you all had a much more exciting new year's eve than i did. mine consisted of organizing toddler toys and falling asleep on the couch at 9:30. being pregnant this time of year is super exciting ;-)

we had a great Christmas break. i ended up having my ultrasound a little early after having a teeny little bit of concern that maybe something was going wrong. turns out everyone is just fine and our little bun is in fact a little baby boy! bub and i couldn't be more thrilled. we'll have our little lady and now a bouncing baby boy to add to the mix. now to figure out what to do with the kid's room. nuggie's room was carefully decorated. and well, it's all very girly. lavender and white and sweet little birdies. since a new, bigger home isn't in the cards for us anytime soon the kiddos will have to share for a while. i'm not sure we really want to paint though - since hopefully we'll be selling sometime in the not too distant future i don't really want to go painting the room like half blue now only to have to paint it something more neutral when we put the house up on the market. how do i make up little man's corner of the room to look a little manly, but not do anything too drastic or permanent? and what colors will go with lavender? i guess it really doesn't matter at this point. as long as he's dry, full and cared for he probably won't much care what color his room is. but i think bub cares a little. it is his son after all. i know he'd like to man up the room a bit... any advice?

school started back up this morning. i am scared to death. like really, REALLY scared. there is so much riding on this semester. i've wracked up literally a small fortune of student loans (can't forget all those TNU loans i took out the first time around) - so those will need paying off in the very near future. we've been scraping by one income for over two years now. we're broke and i need to work. as an RN. STAT! so failing this semester isn't an option. but that's a lot of pressure. i'm just going to try to be successful every day. not getting behind, but not freaking out about what's ahead. i'll get through it all one day at a time.

did anyone watch downton abbey last night??? i LOVED that shirley maclaine was the mother-in-law! she was perfection!

anyhow, i don't have anything much else to report. guess that's a good thing :-)
