4 weeks from today...

Our little Gracie will have greeted the world, with squinty, shocked eyes. And we will be sitting there in the hospital, staring at her, thinking, "now what?" :)

And 3 weeks from today, I'll already be on Maternity Leave!! That's amazing. And crazy. And exciting. And a little scary. But isn't life always those things?

Bring it on!

Blessed, Overwhelmed and Overrun by PINK!!

In a matter of 24 hours, we went from having a decent amount of baby stuff that definitely would have gotten us through with a new baby, to having an ABUNDANCE of stuff!! I had two baby showers last week: one on Friday thrown by my fellow teachers and one on Saturday thrown by my mom. Holy Guacamole, was I a little taken aback! We are thankful for the love and support and friendships we have, but it's still a little overwhelming. On Saturday, I just kept glancing over at the gift table, and I swear the presents were multiplying on their own, because the pile wasn't diminishing!! Like I said, we're grateful, but I have a feeling we'll have to change little Grace 5 times a day just to get her in every outfit at least once!!

And Ms. Cindy's throwing me another shower in two weeks.

Another week later...

It's been a week since I wrote last. I'm sure there's lots of things I could share, if only I could remember them...Well, I'm still pregnant. (Duh!) I've got 5 and a half weeks of work left, and 6 and a half weeks until we get to meet baby Gracie. That's a little crazy...My dear friend PBAF is headed to the hospital tomorrow evening to be induced, so should be meeting her baby Lily Thursday sometime. Man oh man, that blows my mind. I can't imagine how anxious she must be...Mason's had a stomach thing (throwing up) since Thursday, then he was fine Sunday, then he got runny poopy yesterday. Fun fun. I think he's finally getting over it...I have two baby showers next week: one at work on Friday (during half of an Inservice!!) and one on Saturday that my mom is throwing. It's really exciting, but a little overwhelming, because Ms. Cindy is also throwing one for me in a couple of weeks too. I think we'll have more pink than we'll know what to do with!! I am grateful, don't get me wrong, but I just can't imagine how much stuff we'll acquire (I am registered at Target and BabiesRUs, but I really don't know if there's enough for 3 showers!!)...Today is Super Tuesday, and I know my right and duty as an American citizen is to participate in the Primaries, but I can't. We never bothered to re-register to vote when we moved. We did, however, change our address on our Driver's License, so we can't even go to our former polling place. But honestly, I don't know who I would vote for, even I could. My hubby and I agree that so far one specific candidate isn't wowing us or really someone we could feel 100% confident with running this country. I guess we'll just see who comes out on top today, and then we'll be able to narrow down our choices...I really need to jot down some of the mind blowing things my little teenage geniuses have said lately, because I'm sure I could have enough to have a 3rd installment in my blog, Teenagers Are Common Sense Deficient. So, look forward to that. Someday...I guess that's enough random rambling for now. See you on the flip side (what the heck does that mean, anyways?)
