Nursery? Check!

Casey and I have been working overtime on our baby room for the past two weeks. It's finally done! Hooray!


I have been on maternity leave since May 26th. Best feeling ever. It's only been two weeks and I am loving it. Strange how I don't miss it. There was not one day where I woke up early feeling like I was late for work or missing something. I went from working full time to sleeping in and hanging around the house without blinking an eye. Isn't it amazing how that works? I am sooooo looking forward to an entire summer off of work with my hubby and our baby. Most exciting time of our life together. Our first adventure as a family. I can't wait to hold him in my arms. I wonder what he'll look like and what his personality will be like? I'm so excited to meet our son.

Casey left for Sweden today. It was a last minute trip. He got invited to go play in a beach vball tournament representing the USA. He didn't want to pass up a free trip back to Sweden and it's great experience to play internationally, so we decided he should go. We went to the doctor today and he gave the okay. I'm not dilated at all. No contractions. I'm putting myself on bed rest this week to make sure that baby doesn't come while daddy is away. But it looks like I still have another solid two weeks until baby Patterson will make his debut. I'm totally okay with that. I hope he comes right on his due date. June 22nd would be a good bday. Casey helped me get everything ready before he left just in case baby comes. So we'll see what happens. We both had a little talk with the baby and I have a feeling that he will wait for his big poppa to come home on Monday night. Next doctor appointment is on Tuesday. More updates then.

By the way... I haven't mentioned it on here yet, but we came to a decision on baby Patterson's name. Grandpa Patterson made him a beautiful name sign to put above his crib, so we are locked in with the name. What do you think?

Cash Ryan Patterson. He's going to be so hot with a name like that. Just like his daddy, Casey Ryan Patterson.
