Our New Room

It's official, we finally finished our new bedroom. I mean really finished!

Last week the plumber stopped over & hooked up our toilet & sinks. Then Friday, our wonderful & very helpful friend Jon, came up from South Bend to help Phil put up the last of the trim & the closet doors. Then Sunday Phil's mom came over and helped us paint all the trim. And that was the last of it! We now can officially move in if we want. However that might be delayed a little until we get a rug for the room... that wood floor is COLD!

Of course I have "misplaced" my gizmo that lets me transfer pictures from my camera to the computer, so until I find that, you will have to wait to see the finished product. Sorry!

Our deepest thanks to everyone who has helped us along the way, we really couldn't have done it without you!

Update on Baby Maltburg

For those of you that are interested, here is a quick update on the last few months of my pregnancy (for those of you who aren’t, stop reading now!).

Up until exactly 6 weeks to the day, I felt fine. That dreaded 6 week mark was the beginning of my own silent little torture world (sometimes not so silent) and the end of the wife that Phil is used to. From 6 weeks until pretty much last week (which was 13 weeks), this is what my life consisted of:

Sleep, Throw up, Feel sick, Eat, Sleep, Feel sick, Eat, Sleep, Go to bed (sometimes throw up before bed)

Now I’ve progressed so that my sleeping is less (although still more than usual for me), my throwing up & feeling sick is mainly limited to the morning, (By the way whoever coined the phrase “morning sickness” clearly has never been pregnant. It is more like all day and wake you up at night sickness.) and eating… I think the eating has taken the place of the feeling sick & throwing up part. Basically I feel like I have clock in my belly that goes off when it hasn’t had food in at least 1 hour (sometimes 1 ½ hrs). If we hadn’t heard the heartbeat already, I’d swear that I had a tape worm.

I drank the water . . .

Well, here it is everyone, after 3 long months of keeping a secret (or not keeping a secret if you are my husband), it's time to make an announcement. I drank the water. That's right, I am pregnant, about 13 weeks along.

It seems to be contagious lately. There are quite a few new pregnancies between my friends, family friends, people I currently work with, people I used to work with and my hair dresser, I think I know about 156 women that are pregnant.

Either way, it's very exciting news that in just 6 short months, there will be a new addition to the Maltburg family. I will try to keep you up to date on the happenings without being too annoying or detailed about the fun I get to experience.

A new look

Well, with all the new and exciting things going on in our life right now (more to come), I thought it was probably time for a change on the blog too. That and I feel a little guilty because everyone else has new exciting blogs and ours is old and outdated.

So, here you go. Enjoy!

Halloween Fun at Stryker

This year we were very unprepared for Halloween as a group, so at the last minute we threw together costumes.
