my mom

My sweet mama came this week and helped us soo much! I just felt like I needed my mama to help me get ready for this baby's (coming soon) arrival. She did laundry for us and washed blankets, bib, socks and clothes, etc. for the baby. She sewed pom pom ball fringe on the crib skirt for me! (photos to come) She treated us to gelato and Mexican food. :) She got to come to our church shower which was so much fun. She helped me to organize the baby's closet, find a rug for the nursery, cut tags off of new things and on and on and on! We also enjoyed a few jaunts out shopping, tested out rockers and laughed over things like a public restroom that had an entire sign of does and don'ts that it seemed you *needed* to know . . . and the baby washpod that we saw that looked like a horribly awkward way to bath one's child. It was a GREAT visit!! Thank you sooo much for coming, Mom!!!

p.s. At least we weren't getting in trouble with the "dressing room police" at Ross like we did last spring break. I think we managed to stay out of trouble this year. :)

What have you been doing this week?

You look amazing, mama!

Sounds like you're all set w/ baby's nursery and gear. Aren't showers the best thing ever? Now it's just waiting, waiting for baby's grand entrance. That's the hardest part!

How nice of your Mom!!! Cherish it. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier! Your blog sends me down memory lane. I can't believe my oldest is already 10, this reminded me of those days.

Fabulous picture! I love the dress. Those baby pods are hilarious, but not for me. I read about them once and they are supposed to keep the baby in the natural womb position so they are happy. I think it makes it hard to wash the unmentionables - which can get pretty nasty sitting in diapers! I don't even like the tub seats that some use for young sitters in the tub - makes the unmentionables unreachable for the soap and scrubber!!

Oh, sounds like a sweet, fun time. That's the best, getting ready for baby, where each little thing is significant and special (including the gelato and Mexican food!)...it's all a happy build up and celebration of what's Coming!

I bet you two had so much fun with all the preparations. Time is drawing close. I'm sure excited for all of you.

What precious memories. Seeing that picture made me realize why people thought we planned our "matching" outfits. Love you and Little One and your sweet hubby too.
