Oh Abbi-gator, why won't you get adopted?

I truly love this dog... I just wish the perfect home would swoop down and adopt her.

If you know anyone who wants a sweet little girl, she is available!

32 Weeks tomorrow!

retroized picture

We're officially 32 weeks tomorrow. I have started visiting the midwives every two weeks now. So far everything looks great and very "boring."

Its been freezing cold here in Missouri and we're setting records for the most amount of snow they have seen since 1962... :( We also tied the record low yesterday for 9 degrees. The average temperature for yesterday was 46... which would be really nice about now.

We still have Abbie, our foster dog. Its a little discouraging that we have given the rescue about 7 months to find her a new foster home and we haven't heard anything about it. If you want a really sweet, cuddly little dog that is completely potty trained, let me know! I warn you she is a female pit bull which means she is a total brat, but we love her like our own.

Sassy is still going strong. She has a growth on her eye that doesnt seem to be giving her any pain. I am hesitant to take her in to have it looked at because she cannot survive a surgery and we're really just letting her live out her life until she is no longer comfortable. She seems pretty happy to me!

Mark takes his part 2 & 3 of his boards in March. Then he takes part 4 in May. We didnt really plan this stuff very well... but we'll get through it! He is very ready to be done with school and really enjoying his time in the student clinic. If anyone wants an adjustment, he is taking new patients!

Back to baby stuff:

We're getting so close its almost insane. We're starting to get things ready for her arrival. We are attempting to cloth diaper so we can avoid waste, landfills and cans full of stinky poop in our house. We received a really wonderful gift from a friend yesterday of 3 super nice cloth diapers. We have a few others that we found discounted online. My aunt also bought us a diaper service for a month after the baby is born so we don't even have to do our own laundry!

We had another friend loan us a ton of stuff that she had leftover from her little one who is now 2. She saved us a ton of money, and we're super grateful!

I have gained 25 lbs so far. Which sounds like a ton, but I really havent gained anywhere other than my belly. Here is to hoping it continues that way!

The floors are done!

Well, the floors are finally done and I'm very happy with the way they turned out. Our bedroom is almost finished...I still need to install the door and caulk the baseboards.

Here's the floor in the bedroom:

The new guest room is full of crap so I'm not going to post any pictures, but here's a couple pictures of our bedroom fully furnished:
