The Recliner

18 Jan

The new recliner/glider/rocker is now in the house. It was convenient that it arrived right before the two football games today- Kerry decided to keep it in the living room for a few hours to ‘break it in’ and ‘make sure it was comfortable.’ It was football, chili, a fire in the fireplace and a recliner and he was completely happy.

bellyIt has been a pretty quiet weekend at the house due to the Inauguration and not being able to easily get around town so we do not have a whole lot to update. In a few weeks we head to Charleston and so far we have plans for a ghost tour, a tour of the Hunley submarine and a trip to Fort Sumter. Let us know if you have any other suggestions!

Sneaking in the recliner

Kerry has been wanting a recliner for months and after a suggestion from his physical therapist, he decided that the nursery would be a perfect spot for one. The logic was that if Baby V was having a bad night, ‘we’ could rock her in the recliner and also comfortably fall asleep in the chair if needed. After looking at gliders and rocking chairs for a nursery, I agreed to the recliner plan as long as the recliner did not look like a ‘typical’ recliner. No ugly tweedy fabric or strangely puffed up back allowed. Kerry was on a mission and when we joined Jorge and Gina furniture shopping today, he found the recliner. (This was the only link I could find to the recliner- we purchased at Belfort Furniture). We bought one and Jorge and Gina purchased two. It rocks, reclines, looks really nice and will be arriving at the beginning of February. And, now that the recliner has been strategically snuck into the house- I am assuming Kerry is volunteering for the middle of the night ‘comforting’ sessions with Baby V. Here is a preview:

We had fun furniture shopping today and Gina and I quickly noticed a trend with Jorge and Kerry since they went to every reclining piece of furniture in all the stores.

Kerry found the over-sized dining room chair for all of us to model in:

tandk09I guess the above qualifies as our 28 week picture (28 weeks and 2 days to be exact). Now, we are back at home with a nice fire and watching the football playoffs.
