This year of course, October is something mythical. October is the month when we meet Ember.
Speaking of mythical, here is one of the latest "Oh !@#$" purchases.
Before anyone hates me for posting this unbearable cuteness, I must say that if I was left to my devices, our baby would probably have come home in a pillow case. I couldn't even look at baby clothes until week 30 or something. Then I would look, but I couldn't buy. Finally, last weekend my mom came over and asked awkward questions like, "So, what do you have?" and "What if you went into labour in the next few days?" I don't think I will, incidentally, but at 37 weeks, it's possible. Yikes.
So I put on my brave face and we went baby shopping. Despite several distinct urges to find an excuse, any excuse to run out from the store, we did it together. I just needed the backup.
Unbearable cuteness it is.
The closest outfits are the newborn ones, and then the next row are the slightly bigger ones.
Now I will have to wash them all in the next few weeks....
Oh, and here's a lovely shot of the nursery. LOL. That's the crib and change table in boxes on the floor. Bassinet (which will go in our bedroom) is in the background. Glider is ordered, hasn't arrived. (Same with stroller.)
The past week has been kind of crazy. Besides the fact I have a week and half left of work to get things mostly organized for my replacement, my colleague bunged her knee and has been off work. So I feel like I'm trying to keep twice as many balls in the air. We also have two baby classes on the go, and in addition to other commitments, it seems like we have something scheduled to do every single day and evening. Not exactly what we've been used to. But it will all be worth it. It will.
Thinking of everyone always.
