Someone shaved yesterday :). Chris went to trim his beard before we headed out to get him a haircut, and accidentally ended up shaving it all off by putting it on the wrong setting.
So, he went from this:
I felt like I hadn’t seen that handsome face in months! I didn’t mind the beard, but I didn’t realize how different his face looks with it.
But anyway, on to baby talk :).
This weekend, we went to Baby’s R Us for the very first time. It was awesome. We played with strollers and swings, looked at crib sets and bathtubs, teething toys and clothes. It was all a little overwhelming, but exciting at the same time.
It’s starting to feel REAL that we’re actually bringing a little baby home in 60 days (or less!!). The due date is April 15th, but baby could come early! We’re starting to think about logistics – driving/flying, how long we’ll be in town, etc. Chris has final exams for school right around that time and doesn’t have much vacation time, so he probably won’t be able to be there for the whole time.
It’s hard to make plans when we have no idea how things will go. Right now, things will look kind of like this:
Baby is born, is released from the hospital after 48 hours, then goes to the nanny’s house in Baton Rouge – she’s the mandatory interim care provider until the revocation papers are signed after the 5 day waiting period. We can visit the baby at the nanny’s house during that time, and once the papers are signed we can take the baby home to Lafayette. We have to wait until the ICPC paperwork is signed (which takes anywhere from 1-2 weeks) before we can leave the state. Once that is done, depending on how long it took, we’ll either start home right away or stick around for a couple more days.
In the meantime, I’ve got a couple craft projects I’m working on for baby – attempting to make newborn gowns from old t-shirts and sewing a couple flannel blankets. Also, if this lovely, warm weather holds out this week (it got up to almost 50 degrees today!), I’m going to be sanding and painting our crib. A mom from our local WAPF group gave us a beautiful convertible crib – it’s just the tiniest bit worn in spots, but nothing a little work won’t fix. I just have to pick the perfect yellow to go with the blue/grey walls of the nursery.
Oh, and of course, continue preparations for our next auction – March 10-14th.
So much to do! At least staying busy is helping the time pass quickly.
