What Am I Forgetting?

Ok, so the baby is coming in about 9 days. I'm trying to think of everything I need to do to get ready. I have her pj's, blankets, etc. all washed up, diapers and wipes, and the cradle is ready. I need to clean when the time gets closer and get some groceries. What else do I need to do? Also, any advise about a C-section?

Book of Mormon Stories

Yesterday Pete and Emily and I were all sitting on the bed talking. She told us she wanted to sing us a song and began to sing “Book of Mormon Stories”. Pete and I got a big kick out of this line. “…Long ago their fathers came from far across the street…” :)

Too Much!!

Too much stuff...or more like not enough space. Emmy's bedroom is small and we don't have a lot of space, so it feels even more packed. I started out trying to make things colorful in her room, but now we've had to pack so much stuff in there with the baby coming, that it kind of looks like Rainbow Brite exploded in there! I am, however, excited about the crate covers I made. They go over those big black crates that have the holes in them. A girl in our ward made a pattern for them. I made some that match my family room, too.

Thanks a lot!

Well, today it finally happened...I was at the library and one of the librarians looked me up and down and said, "Girl, when are you due?" I told her and she said, "Are you having twins?!" I started to nervously laugh to cover up my embarrassment and said, "No." She said, "Well it's just that your stomach is so round. That's going to be a big baby." Gee, thanks. That's exactly what I needed to hear when I was already feeling frumpy, round, emotional, extra-large, and crappy. Why do people say stuff like that??
