Daddy Prepares for Diaper Duty

This is about the cutest, sweetest story ever!

So, I got invited to go out to dinner with some friends and my grandparents tonight for dinner, but Chris and I had tons of stuff to do around the house. He knew I wanted to go so he said he'd get everything done and for me to go to dinner. (Not, even the best part yet.)

On my way home, I called to see how things were coming along. He said he was playing with a pack of newborn diapers that I gave him for Father's Day. I, of course, said what do you mean? He said he was practicing. He wanted me to check it when I got home, because he didn't think it looked right (he thought the holes for the legs were too small). How cute is that?! I know he's excited, but he's even practicing with the diapers and I didn't have to drag him to a class!

When I got home the little bitty baby diaper was in Baby's room all put together. He did do it all perfectly. The holes for the legs were fine, too. Gotta love an excited Daddy! I do!!!

Back to School

School has started and I'm glad to be back! I love having a schedule and now that I'm not sick anymore things have been great. I am tired, but I've been getting plenty of sleep. The only thing that's killing me are me darn shoes!!! My feet have been soooo sore and swollen (yuck!).

I love my new kiddos and I love the people I'm working with. I told my kids that I'll be having a baby in January and they were excited. They want to know how long I'll be gone and if I'll come back. I've been sad that I'll have to leave Baby and go back to work, but I also know that my school kiddos wanted to make sure that I'd be back before the end of the year. That made me feel good, even though I'll be really sad.

This is going to be a great year and I'm excited!

Baby Furniture

Last weekend, Chris and I went out looking for baby furniture ideas. My mom met us a store in Frisco when we had ideas of what we liked. She's been excited about getting Baby a crib since the day we told her she's going to be a grandma. We finally decided on a crib and a dresser that we all liked. It is perfect! The crib is beautiful and it turns into a toddler bed, and then a full size big-kid bed. Who knew a crib could do all that!?!?

Yesterday my mom and I went and ordered the furniture and the safest baby mattress we could find. Maybe Baby will like the crib so much that he/she will want to sleep all night in it without waking up. hahahahaha

As soon as we get the room ready for the furniture, we are going to pick it all up and it will be waiting for Baby.

Thanks Grammy for the crib and dresser!

Getting Back to "Normal" for Awhile

Yay! The headaches are getting better. Fruits and veggies are starting to sound good again. And I'm able to workout again. These things make me feel much more "normal." I've started going to water aerobics sice it's too hot to do anything else. I love it! It really is a good workout and it's hilarious how silly we look. I have started getting stuff ready for school - can't believe Summer is almost over. I am excited to meet my new kiddos. I know the first semester will fly by and before we know it Baby Jeans will be here.

Right now, the Big Day is September 2nd. We are going to find out if we are having a boy or girl. Woohoo! I can't wait. Today's doctor's appointment was pretty boring. Funny how when they aren't taking blood it becomes "boring." I guess I mean less eventful. Except we did get to hear the heartbeat and that's always amazing.

The last two nights I've woken up around 4:30 in the morning thinking I'm starving. Yikes! I told my friend Ashley this morning that I'm weird and I didn't know what was going on. Thank goodness for Baby Center, because I got my 15 week update tonight and one of the articles on there was about this happening. So, I guess I'm normal and I'll have to be prepared for this, because I do not think that eating at 4 in the morning needs to become a habit. Haha

Let's see how long "normal" lasts.
