Our fat grumpy baby: ))

We had a gorgeous surprise last night, pics of our gorgeous sleepy grumpy baby. I think baby has grown a duck bill - check out that top lip.

We are 27 weeks this Monday. Baby's head is measuring 29 weeks, which averages baby's gestation age up to 28 weeks. Fattie is weighing 1073 grams, (2.36 pounds.)

While baby is growing steadily the house is coming along so darned fast. The past couple of days my niece and I have been up on the trestle sealing very fiddly decorative cornice and sealing the walls with an oil based goo we are now both covered in. We did the whole extension - all 80sqm of it in one afternoon. Now the fun bit starts, we get to play with colours!

We had to paint ourselves because we couldn't get a painter in for four weeks due to recent storms in Perth, all tradies are booked out. My hands are aching, and my wrists are swollen, but it has to be done as this babe is on his or her way. Bob is off shore again, so it's up to the girls!

I've taken a video of the progress that I will try to upload because the camera has gone ka-put. The goal is to have the painting finished by Wednesday, then the floor sanders can come in and polish the floors, then the kitchen goes in. We still don't have our windows as there was a mess up with the size of rebate in the frames, they now have to be routed out another 5mm so the lead lights can be fitted. The french doors and sidelights won't be done for ages, so we're going to have to board up the house as I don't think we'll have them ready in time for baby pickup.

I cannot tell you how darned excited I am getting. A little stressed, yes, as the house is not ready - but we'll cope.
