Nesting

stock-photo-a-real-blue-robin-s-egg-in-a-robin-s-bird-nest-152856413Here we are in ‘winter vacations’ for the next two weeks. Savanna and I are thankful for the time to prepare for the baby coming in September. We’ve been painting, shopping, cleaning, and just a little bit of custom carpentry. The baby books that are sitting on our shelf call this ‘Nesting.’ We’ve also really appreciated this time to get some other tasks out of the way before life changes pretty drastically–our car has new tires, we got Costa Rican driver’s licenses. We’ve even snuck in a few fun things that we may not be able to do for a while once our little boy is here–seeing movies, taking naps, being spontaneous. It has been a busy, but great few days.

Savanna officially reached third trimester this week. Her doctor is still saying both she and the baby look healthy. We are excited to meet this little guy, who will hopefully have a name come September 🙂

28 weeks. Baby boy will be here so soon!

A little tidbit about getting our driver’s licenses. We had to collect six different documents, get double copies of each, and go to four different locations. A personal favorite was doing the eye exam in Spanish…remembering the alphabet in your second language under stressful circumstances is never fun haha. Over all the process took about one day of preparation and five hours at the DMV equivalent. Thankful to have that out of the way!

Licenciados!

Licenciados!

We are excited for what is ahead and look forward to seeing some of you in Tennessee in just a few days!
