Almost Ready for Harriet: 08/03/06
In the process of getting the house ready for our house guests, we have sorted out our living room, clearing space for Harriet's tummy time mat (which we still need to get) and her bouncy seat. As we did with Sean, we've moved our coffee table off to the side so that the area around the couch and chair can be open for Harriet. At first it will just be a convenient place to put her either in her seat or on the mat when she's a little older. Later when she's mobile it will be a good place to practice walking. Before she's mobile we will need to get and install a baby gate to the stairs. We didn't need one with Sean as our old place didn't have stairs inside.
The Amazing Disappearing Woman:
In the chaos of getting ready for our guests, I had forgotten to wash any trousers for this morning. I couldn't very well come upstairs in my night gown as I normally would have for the morning bit of my work from home duties, so I had to put one something!
I found a pair of dress trousers that had been too small for me when I first got pregnant with Harriet. I held them up and realized they might actually fit. I tried them on and they did! Mind you, they are a bit tight in the belly area but not as bad as they were before I was pregnant. Good grief, I'm eight month's pregnant and I'm wearing a pair of pants two sizes smaller than I was eight months ago.
