We've gotten alot done these last few days. First I finished painting the bugs on the baby's room walls. Check out the pictures below.
Then we spent two evenings doing yard work. It was alot of fun! The first night we pulled up a ton of weeds out front and planted a few things. Last night I pulled up a dead bush in the front garden, then loosened up the incredibly dry soil so Michelle could plant some flowers we bought. Then I borrowed our kind neighbor’s hedge trimmer and trimmed all our bushes. I’ve got to get myself one of those ... too much fun!
So my first father's day is nearing an end. Michelle got me the most beautiful card, it actually made me tear up. She's so sweet. Even though our baby girl's not born yet, I still consider myself a father.
And actually I've been wondering lately why we count our age by the number of years from your birth. Because everyone is actually 9 months older than that! So I'm actually 26 years old right now even though I celebrated my 25th birthday in February. Of course birth-day is a celebration of your day of birth, so out of convenience I'll continue to say I'm 25 years old. But I just thought it was interesting that many don't think about the baby being truly alive until it's born.
Michelle's cousin also visited us last week. We had a really fun time, went to see the aquarium, and the Creation Museum.
Wow what a great trip! Check out the photos to find out more, but we visited my parents, Gettysburg, and various parts of Cape Cod. Very relaxing and tons of fun with a great family. Grammy's house still has so many great memories. But I think this was Michelle's last big trip before the baby.
