Besides the showers, I'd like to think that I made leaps and bounds in the baby gear department. On Thursday afternoon I discovered Amazon was having a 20% off baby sale, so the crib mattress and accouterments were ordered. I should have a big a mattress box sitting on my porch when I get home. I'm a little excited. Saturday evening, I took Melinda down to SLC to make the long awaited car seat & baby monitor purchase. That one hurt a little more than the mattress purchase, but I hear that won't let you take the baby home from the hospital if you don't have a car seat or something? And then we went to the dreaded Ikea, which really, wasn't that bad because it just wasn't, but it also felt good know that there was NOTHING else that I needed from there. Now begins the glorious 1 year Ikea hiatus. Because seriously. Thank goodness for Melinda, she makes running those types of errands much more bearable, even fun. Our car talks really can't be beat.
Other than that I've just been spending as much time with my brothers as they'll give me. They get so busy and I miss them.
Probably for my husbands sake I should note that BYU beat Texas, so that's exciting for him. Me also because that means I had a happy husband for the duration of the weekend.
I finished up an Ellie's room craft too, but there's enough to that one that I'll do another post as well. Look at me with all of my post line-ups.
Oh, but I love that girl so much already. I almost feel like I already know her. I know we've met before and chosen to be together, so it's only a matter of time that we slip back into our old ways and comforts together with each other.
