Baby shower madness!

Ha – not really. I did have my baby shower yesterday…my second one…and last one before baby arrives. It was so nice to get cleaned up, put in contacts, wear jeans and makeup and get out of the house!  It was super fun, and so nice to see my girls. I feel like a friendless shut-in anymore, so talking to my friends face to face was awesome. I got lots of beautiful gifts and I’m feeling more prepared for a baby now  than ever.

The hubs and his mom went to Babies R Us after the shower to buy the essential things we still hadn’t received…and boy was it spendy. Of course, the car seat I wanted wasn’t available at the store they went to, and the other store in the metro was out as well, so I ordered it via their website. It’s supposed to be here any time between Thursday and next Monday.  I’m hoping it gets here before the baby does! We’re ready in nearly every other aspect!!

The nursery is SO CLOSE to being ready to show off. I have a little bit more cleaning up to do, but I got some pictures hung, the mattress is in the crib, as is the now clean bedding…changing pad in place…all that’s really left is the shelves, which were a staining FAIL this weekend. I’ll try to take some pics in the next few days.

I’m putting my money on this happening sometime next week…maybe like a week from Friday. So weird to think we’ll have a baby in our house! Honestly though, I feel so much more ready just knowing we at least have the bare minimum of what we’ll need to get by. At least, I think we do!

And I think we’ve settled on a girls name too. We’ll see about that. The boy name has still stuck. I’m just waiting for the hubs to change his mind on the girl name. :)
