J and I had a good weekend; tied up a lot of loose ends and are feeling a lot more baby-ready.

On Sat BRU called to let us know the crib was in! So we drove up to Toldeo to pick it up. They must have been having some sort of event because the store was beyond packed; I'm glad all we needed to do was pick up the bed and leave, I had no tolerance level for that many people. O!d Navy is right next door (another store we don't have nearby) and we stopped in because I am so sick of all of my maternity clothes. Really, I wear the same 4 shirts over and over again. I love my dresses, but I'm no good at housekeeping in them, plus my legs get cold. So I broke out the big bucks and bought two whole t-shirts! I figure they'll tide me over for the next few weeks. I took a nap on the way home (more than 20 min in the car and I am out), and J woke me up to see if I wanted Starbicks (why yes! I did!). Sometimes he's right on it :)

In 9 days Peanut will technically be fully cooked - I think Feb. 20 is an excellent day to have a baby - don't you? I'm trying really hard to be patient, but I just want to meet Peanut and cuddle. I might be bribing the baby with promises of private school and college tuition.

PS - J spray painted the bassinet in the garage, now I just need to paint a few of the spindles green and it'll be all perfect :)

I think just a few days early on the 15th would be fantastic! Peanut could share a great day with G and I!

We need to start a baby pool for you soon!

Since you're the one having the baby, the baby is technically Jocko's V Day gift. Tell him to buck up for some baskets.

YAY for the crib. Now you can post pics of the room :)

I definitely think you need to start a baby pool soon. We have a lot more guessing for you. I won't have a baby pool because I know my schedule c-section date, time, etc. And supposedly I know the sex...hehehe
