OMG, it’s December

So yeah, that little ticker on the right says less than 20 days to go. YIKES!

Had third and final baby shower today, got lots of great stuff off our registries and other wonderful goodies. Lots of books, which was fantastic. She hasn’t even been born and already she has a good library. Makes sense, given her who her parents are!

We’re pretty much “ready” for the big day: bags packed and in the car at all times, car seat in (although I need to have it checked this week), diapers, wipes, bottles, crib with a sheet and mattress pad on it, her laundry washed. Jason has put her swing together. Now we just need to put batteries in everything (like the monitors). And of course, it would be nice if I could get my exams and papers graded before she decides to arrive!

Loot! Part II

Oh, how we love gift cards and cash. We got lots of other great things at our baby shower in Olive Hill, KY, but those were certainly greatly appreciated. It’s daunting to think of all the stuff we still need to buy.

Most unusual gift? Money that was rolled up and turned into sculpture: bills that were turned into a baby carriage! We did get a few things from our registries, also, which was a relief. I was beginning to think we spent all that time doing those for nothing!

Loot! Part I

Back from the first baby shower (with my folks, in Nancy, KY). Got tons of great stuff. All the usual: lots of clothes, some diapers, wipes, toys, wash cloths, bottles, baby bath stuff. Jason will probably report on the more unusual stuff, so I’ll leave that to him. It was actually quite fun, although weird to be in the spotlight opening presents. Felt a little strange, but I’d better get used to it (two more showers to go!).
