24 weeks!

I am 24 weeks along - officially hit 6 months - and the baby has been moving all over the place. I have been able to share it with a few people - Abby, Mike, and Debbie. I LOVE LOVE LOVE feeling her move around in there. It is the most amazing feeling - wierd, but absolutely amazing! She moves a lot in the evening, it seems, usually after I eat dinner. Abigail was the same way.

In the next three months, Mike and I have a lot of work to do. We haven't started on the nursery - and it is currently wall-to-wall crap! It has servers and bookcases, file cabinets, photo albums, camera gear, clothes, a bed and bed-clothes, and that is just a list of the stuff I can still see! Our first order of business is to get rid of the double-bed that is in there - that will give us some space to even get into that room and move stuff out.

I also need to bring all of the totes of Abby's clothes upstairs and sort through them. They weren't packed away well - by that I mean that I didn't sort them by size. Every 6 months or so, I would just go on a rampage and take stuff out of Abby's closet. There are probably five totes of clothes to go through, and it will be an all-day, cover-the-entire-living-room-floor, mind-numbing chore!

I will also need to go through the gear - car seat, swing, bouncer, and changing pad to clean them for the new baby. I will need to wash the clothes and blankets, too.

Last, but certainly not least, we need to come up with a name for this baby! She needs a name! Mike and I aren't very good at doing this together, because we typically don't like the same names - so it's probably going to be a struggle for us! Wish us luck!
