Sometimes it's just nice to stay put. And that's exactly what we did. We slept in, made sweet rolls and just did things around the house. Ahhh… no plans, no schedules, and no work. Yes, it was lovely. I did drag hubs to the dreaded Babies R Us, but it was quick and painless. I had a small list so we were in and out except for one section. Bottles. We stood staring at the endless wall of options. I swear there were hundreds. We're smart people. Surely we could figure this out. But, what brand, what size, what do the numbers mean? It was like a code we couldn't crack. Sigh. Back to the drawing board. I needed to do more research. By now, it was pouring down rain and the wind was howling around us and our enormous sack of goods. Time to hurry home and put my feet on up and relax. I love napping when it's raining. The cool air blowing in. We made one of our favorite meals, Tuscan Chickpea Soup and watched Crazy Heart. Oh my goodness, if you haven't seen this you gotta rent it. Jeff Bridges is outstanding and the music… well, let's just say I've already downloaded the soundtrack. Love, love, love the music.
Since my baby shower last weekend, I had haphazardly thrown everything into the crib. Fine for a few days, but it was starting to drive me crazy. So Sunday was the day. I washed all the little blankets and onesies and burp cloths. Hung them on miniature hangers and sorted through all the gear. The nursery is sort of still in disarray, but at least there is progress. And happy day… one of my first baby purchases arrived. A cute sling to hold the bambino by polkadot papoose. Isn't it just adorable? The fabric is by Anna Maria Horner (a nashville gal) and I think her work is so cool. To be honest I have no idea how to use it. I imagine trying it out with a stuffed animal isn't quite like the real thing. Hopefully baby will show me the ropes!
