Our weekend was filled with baby errands once again, which left me feeling productive but also a little exhausted. I know I already mentioned this, but it is amazing how little activity is required to make me feel out of breath. I even sat down on the floor of Home Depot (under the guise of needing to look at what was on the lowest shelf, of course) just so I could get some rest. I was promptly dismissed by my husband and instructed to wait in the car, which was a-ok with me.
After we were finished at Home Depot, we headed to Babies R Us to pick up our crib mattresses. What I did not find amusing was that there was a man standing outside the entrance smoking. I am certain that I wasn't the only pregnant person and/or mother to glare at him as we walked by. What I did find amusing was hearing Brian talk trash (from the safety of our own car, thankfully) to another driver in the parking lot after he skillfully snagged a coveted "Expectant Mother" parking spot near the front. Whatever keeps him motivated, I guess?
Saturday's adventures also included a tour of the hospital where we'll be delivering, and although the tour didn't last more than 10 minutes, it was still nice to get our bearings and take a look at where all the action will be happening (in 13 weeks or less... eek).
Other items currently at the top of our to do list:
- Pick out a pediatrician.
- Pick up the dresser and changing table from my parents (so that Brian can paint them- lucky guy).
- Figure out whether or not we're going to attend any pre-baby classes (thoughts on this topic?).
- Procure a glider (Thanks for all of your suggestions! We have narrowed it down to 2 or 3 that we like but are stalking Craig's List for another week or two before we bite the bullet and buy one.)
- Finish decorating the nursery.
- Shampoo the carpets.
Sounds like a blast, right?
And to close I'll share a picture from a baby shower I helped throw for a co-worker on Friday:
Allie (left) is due this month with a boy, Teddy (middle) is due next month with a boy, and then I'm due in April with one of each as you know :). Although there is about a 14-week spread between the 3 of us, somehow I think this picture all makes us look the same size? I think it's just the angle and/or what we're wearing.
That's all I've got. Hope your weekends were equally as exciting!
