baby: 35 weeks

Oh not long now! How the weeks and, in particular, the weekends are disappearing. I have not had the chance to upload any photos of the growing bump today as I am still without my laptop. It's a long story...

So here is a photo of our new chair. It's very comfortable and once the baby is on the outside, I will look a lot more glamorous getting out of it. I was in the market for a new nursery/feeding chair as our old one is very uncomfortable, has no head support and creaks. So under the guise of finding a replacement chair, I found this. So easy to convince Steve that we really needed it - I just told him how I could imagine him sitting there, with his 'cans' on, listening to his favourite music. I really am terrible.

This lovely chair is not making it to the bedroom for night feeds as it is far to comfortable in the lounge room. Lucky for me, the lounge room is just down the hall from our bedroom. I can see some future battles over who gets to sit in it. But I know that a breastfeeding mother will always win out and given I fed Minnie for 2 1/2 years, I have a lot of very comfortable nights ahead. (The chair is a Fred Lowen designed Tessa 'T8).

There is still a lot on the 'BB' (before baby) list that needs ticking off. We still need an enormous hole knocked in a wall and some lovely french doors put in (I have the doors, just need the hole). We still need to paint and sand and do some more rearranging. When I say 'need', it's not essential but I think I will feel more relaxed and more ready when these few renovations are done. And if its not all finished, well like Steve says all the baby really needs is 'our love and some nappies.' And I guess he's right.

Oh, I'm loving the chair. I spent heaps on a white, cane rocking chair and it LOOKS great but it is not so comfy. I feed Angus mostly on the couch and in bed, and my back is paying for it.
I would like that chair. And a massage!
Counting down the days with you now my friend.

What a stunning chair! It looks like the perfect place to feed a new little one.
