Most of you know we are having a baby in July! We are so excited! Hallie has even set up toys in her room in anticipation, "just in case the baby comes today and wants to play in my room". It is so cute and I feel so bad that she has to wait until July. I feel so bad that I have to wait until July! And speaking of waiting. I must admit that I twinge with envy as the girls due only a week or two ahead of me are finding out what they are having. I have to wait until March 5! What a cruel joke! I will be 22 weeks. So I am desperately looking for a way to sneak in an early ultrasound. I have volunteered myself as a subject at Whitney's ultrasound tech school and have even located a fetal photo studio in Des Moines. If I opt for the fetal photo, my husband might get actually, really get mad ( for once). Any ideas?
Lastly, I have a new obsession. I really want a bunk bed type deal in my girl's room, but I have these weird fears about bunk beds. I worry about someone falling off the top and I worry about a child falling off the ladder and I even worry about the top bunk crashing down on someone's head. (Probably stems from sleeping on the bottom bunk with my brother above and hearing every little creak in the support beams). Anyway, I think I found an alternative. It is a bunk bed, but not nearly as high, with stairs instead of a ladder and no one's head under the top bunk. Sounds perfect! Only it is WAY out of our price range. So I have been trying to figure out how to get this bed. I found a guy in Craig's List who can build it for a third of the cost. Has anyone had experience with that? Would you recommend it or is that crazy? Also, do you think it would be too wierd to sleep with your head out in the middle of the room? Thoughts? Advice? I would appreciate any input! Here is a picture of the bed so that you can get the visual.
