We spent this past weekend in California. We hadn't been out there in seven months! Seems like it was a lot longer than that, I missed everyone so much. I went with my friend Jaime and SIL to Babies R Us to beef up the baby registry on Saturday morning. I only had the basics on there before, now it looks like an actual registry. I feel better knowing that it's done now and I don't have to worry about it. Jaime also hooked me up with an entire maternity wardrobe! It's all stuff she used while PG with her girls. She has such great taste and I got some really cute stuff from her. She also loaded us up with boy stuff she got at her baby shower and couldn't use because she had girls (they were Team Green both times).
AND they gave us their old high chair! This thing is so cool, it's totally adjustable and will even work when the little one is big enough to sit at the table with us!
Wiggler also chose that day to start showing off for everyone. SIL and I watched while he bounced all around and did weird things to my belly's shape. Talk about a strange feeling. You go all your life with nothing going on and then one day there's a little baby in there kicking your butt from the inside!
Saturday night was the designated boys' night, those guys are so great, I love hanging out with them. I just wish they didn't make it their mission to get him falling down drunk every time we go over there. DH isn't a big drinker, but those guys are seriously hard core. He usually sticks to beer and I always have to monitor them and make sure they're not giving him the whiskey and vodka that they all love. He doesn't handle the mixture well and I usually end up with a truck covered in puke. **so gross** My brother and SIL came over too and she and the guy friend that wanted to throw us our shower scoped out the house for the decoration posibilities. I'm so excited for that! Their plans are sounding so awesome! I'm counting down the days till May 9th! After all that was taken care of, the guys proceeded to initiate my little brother into the group. He was holding his own until he switched from whiskey to beer. Never a good idea. I tried to warn him! Oh well, at least now he knows better!
We went and got our rings inspected at Robbins Brothers on Sunday. I love getting my ring back all sparkly. So pretty! We visited SIL's parents, hung out for a while, and then met up with some other friends for dinner at OLIVE GARDEN! Love that place. Have I mentioned that before ? ; )
Monday morning and afternoon were spent with my in-laws where we were surprised with all kinds of goodies they had accumulated for baby.
**Notice the box of Girl Scout Cookies? Yeah, this PG lady is NEVER without her Girl Scout Cookies!!**
Really cute blanket:
A whole bunch of clothes!:
Well, these are technically slippers, but I LOVE the little bears on the toes!
These have to be my favorites (the cars KILL me!):
We also brought home the bumper! So of course I had to put it on the crib. Crazy not to, right? And notice the dust ruffle? ::dies of cuteness overload::
I'm really at a loss as to what exactly this is. It’s a bitch to get set up, but it all folds down into a neat little portable package. The only thing I can think of is a changing pad, but it’s really complicated for something that you would need fairly often. I have no idea WTH we’re going to do with it. It is kind of cute though.
The drive home this time was more brutal than usual. I can't really put a finger on why, but it was like the car ride that would never end! We got in too late to be able to pick up my babies (pups) from mom and daddy's house, so they had to wait till Tuesday night : (
Can you believe it!? A dozen weeks or so and this kid is going to be here! It's so crazy to think about; it's all gone by so fast! Here's the first 3rd Tri belleh pic!
I’ve been such a slacker lately! I’m only just now amping up my search for birthing classes (I’ve been looking, but not like I should’ve been). And I really need to go meet with our HR people about maternity leave. Does anyone want to volunteer to do this for me?
