We went to the midwife yesterday, which was fun. The stubborn kid is still in breech presentation as I had already suspected since the little one likes to kick against my bladder day and night. As of today I’m 25 weeks pregnant. Phew, time flies when you’re having fun! It really feels as if things are going way too fast. Before you know it…we’ll have a kid. And then what? We’ll be parents and we’ll be responsible for this tiny person. I guess every parent can relate to this feeling?
Anyway, we still haven’t succumbed to literally buying ourselves into parenthood. We still only own the second-hand stuff which we bought months ago. And the new chair my parents gave me. The plan is to buy a few bits and bobs (the kid needs a mattress, I guess? ;-)) and we plan to do that at the end of December. The idea is to buy blankets without a bear/sheep/stars/orwhateverthetrendis theme and have the baby’s name embroided on the sheets. On the part of the white sheet that you fold a blanket so it’s exposed. We think that will look cute. That’s about the only unneccessary expense we’ll make in order to make things look cute. You’ll see the pictures when we’re done. The baby’s room is going to be white, grey and lime green. If it’s a girl we’ll add some pink and if it’s a boy we’ll add some blue.
Well, I’m off doing an analysis on this index investing thing. Oh, and we’re going to put up our christmas tree today. Yay! And finish three books by Tom Hodgkinson (recommended by Valhalla, thanks!) on how to be lazy. You might find this video interesting as well.
