Update On The Addition

Yesterday, the neighborhood ladies got treated to eight hours of Josh, the shirtless wonder, as he labored away on the addition. He's pretty sure he got checked out 17 times. I figure if that's what he needs to believe in order to stay motivated, I won't burst his bubble. So here are the pictures of the progress Josh made. Pretty impressive for a guy working alone (although, against my better judgement, I did help him hoist those windows into place... I'm guessing that ranks up there with drinking a whole bottle of wine in terms of pregnancy risk factors). I also included a couple photos of Daddy & Anna at the bottom. You've got to love a guy who works 8-5 M-F in an office, works on the house all weekend, and still finds time before and after work to actively entertain a two year old. For the record, the construction paper princess crown & earrings pictured below were both conceptualized and executed by Josh himself (you can click to enlarge those little photos, by the way).

Love the crown and earrings. I also love the way she's holding his arm in the picture just before that. The addition looks great! When I was pregnant with Blake, I tried to find a medical excuse to stop carrying 35-lb. Alex around all the time in the midst of his mommy phase (and sometimes Jack at the same time). I asked my doctor and she said while it wasn't great for my back that it wasn't a risk to the baby. So, I think you're safe.

So, I guess my cover was blown...I dressed as one of your "lady neighbors" to get the Chip N Dale-style show from Josh. Stink. I have to work on better costuming.

Josh you are amazing!! You are the Renessance Man(I'm math I can't spell). I'm proud of you. Great addition. By the way, Laura you're making a Great addition too. I'm excited to see that little one in January.

Hi Laura! Josh spooked me with a text out of the blue yesterday. Congrats on the next addition! That's great! I just love your blog and all the pictures of Anna. She's totally adorable. I'm hoping I can get up there for a visit this fall. Josh says I'm to bring Sammy. Ha!
