Blonde moment

And the silver spoon.

This week in the life of Baby…

Baby weighs in at three pounds! Also, now Baby’s bone marrow is taking over blood production and Baby can regulate its own temperature! I am now visibly very pregnant, but I’m also short, so Baby doesn’t have a lot of vertical room to grow.

Baby also has a crib, changing table, diapers, a stroller, and a car seat… so, we just need a mattress and a few onesies and Baby is good to come home. Oh, and we also ordered a rocker… a good old fashioned finger crusher granny rocker. Same brand as my folks’ ordered from the same place my folks got theirs.

I am feeling pretty happy most of the time. But, I’m getting forgetful. I also have my bursts of weepiness… poor Josh. Did you know how sad it is when Drew Berrymore breaks up with Adam Sandler in “50 First Dates?” It’s worth a good 35 minute cry.

I have let it be known to Josh that I want the LSB for Mother’s Day and that Baby will buy him a grill for Father’s Day… but will probably let him pick it out and haul it home and set it up and have it before Memorial Day.

Also, Baby and I have learned we live in one of “those” neighborhoods. Yup. Right next door to flag pole guy that keeps proper flag etiquette. And one of our other neighbors has a little “God bless America” doo dad in their entry way. I have a feeling they won’t flip when they see Josh run around in his ACUs this weekend. (By the way, when Josh switched from BDUs to ACUs, his NCOs passed out a memo on the proper etiquette for wearing them. Apparently, ACUs are more versatile. One can only drink beer in BDUs, but can consume alcohol in ACUs. And though one can consume beer in ACUs, one cannot consume other forms of alcohol in BDUs. What this has to do with Baby, I don’t know, but that’s OK.)

And Baby says that it might be fun to wear this .

As always

    If that outfit weren't so expensive, i'd buy it for you as a shower gift!
    So cute!

    No joke it's expensive! I just put it up because it is sooo funny considering Baby is my post Iraq Baby.

    That's funny! I bet you could find a "plain" camo romper and gets some iron-on letters at Michael's. They may even have some "make your own" iron ons that you print off the computer. Then again after all is said and done, that may bring you back up to the cost of the online romper.

    BTW - I'm sad to say that you will not get your memory back after Baby is born...

    You know... I bet I know just the place to find baby sized ACUs (conversely, I know where I can find cheap camo fabric)... And I think I have some spare denim lying around here somewhere... hmmmm... you know what Mr. Fjelde used to say... "Extra work is extra effort and extra effort is extra grade oooooooo..."
