Dresser Progress

I've been making some pretty good progress on the dresser for Jackson's room. Yesterday, I started painting. The drawers still need to be made but it is probably going to be ready pretty soon if I can find some time to work on it. Below is a picture of the base just before glue-up. I'll try to get some more pictures up soon.

6 Months Down...3 To Go!

Lots of people have been asking us to post a picture of what I look like pregnant, so here you go...

6 Month Belly Shot

We had a doctor's appointment today where I had to drink the awful, sugary drink for a glucose screening to see if I have gestational diabetes, but I don't think I get the results until my next appointment in a couple of weeks. We also got to do another ultrasound today because I was measuring 5 weeks big at the last appointment, but it just turns out there's nowhere else for Jackson to go but out. He now weighs 2 lbs 5 oz, which is right on track! I'm also really feeling him move around these days. The bigger he gets, the more forceful the kicks! Here's a picture from today's ultrasound. If you can make it out, it's a picture of his face with his hand under his chin. Ross says he's already a thinker! Of course, there are more pictures in the album.

Jackson's Room Coming Together

Jackson's room is starting to come together! Since Elizabeth painted the room, we have gotten old furniture out and some new furniture in. We got the crib and glider. The picture below shows the current state of the room (it's a panorama so it may look a little off).

In addition, E has designed and I have modeled the two pieces of furniture that I intend to build. I'm going to start on the dresser pretty soon and if it goes well and we decide there is enough room, I'll then make the book shelf.
