Diaper Bags

I've got a great big brother and sister in law. And I wanted to share the gifts that they got out little girl. Or maybe they're more gifts for Jacob and I. Being that we're going to be the ones using them. :)

This is a little pouch. And it holds a changing pad, a small pack of wipes, and a few diapers. Perfect for when you're going to the store or something. You know, a quick trip.

This is something somewhat similar to the 1st. But it's larger. The entire thing folds out to be a changing pad. And inside, you can store a few diapers, maybe a change of clothes, and wipes. I'm thinking, I can throw this in my purse if I'm going to a friend's house for a quick visit.

And this is the diaper bag that I wanted. I like that it's not pink. I'm sure Jacob will appreciate that too. I didn't want a completely masculine or feminine bag. More of something in the middle. It's a large bag with lots of great pockets. It's a nice size. That tall thing is a bottle bag. Not sure what I'm going to use it for. Because I'm going to breastfeed. and the flat bag, I think I'm going to use it for dirty clothes when we're out.

As you can see, we were hooked up! Thank you guys! Jacob and I are so excited! And if that wasn't enough, my brother and sister in law got us some diapers and wipes. :) ★

Avocado Tree

I've been wanting an avocado tree. But they're really expensive. As in nearly $100 for one tree or $60 for a seedling like this one! That is insanity! I can always try to grow my own from an avocado pit. But I'm 99% positive that it wouldn't bear fruit. Remember, I studied these things in college. So we'd have to buy a seedling from a nursery. Because what would be the point of having an avocado tree if it doesn't bear fruit?

Does anyone know of a good online shop where I can buy one? I know lots of times online shops are cheaper. A lot cheaper than the local nurseries here. ★

Special Birthdays

Happy Birthday Lola! Yes, today one of my very close friends is having a birthday. She is just so special. I hope she has a wonderful day. And if that wasn't enough for the day. Manders and Billy welcomed their twins today. What a wonderful thing! Baby Abby and Robby are so cute! i can't wait to go visit them in the morning.

Today is just a very magical day for my friends. I'm glad. They're just wonderful people. all of them. Birthdays are one of the most amazing things ever! And I can't wait until this weekend. When we go to some beautiful little girls' birthday party! ★

We've been watching Hoarders. Jacob is completely grossed by it. So am I. But it's like when you see an accident and you have to look. I never miss an episode.

I just don't understand how these people live like that. How do they do that? I just couldn't deal with that. I'm being so serious here! I can barely function when the kitchen is dirty. Or Jacob has left a trail of clothes through the house. But to live in that kind of a mess. Well, I'm glad there are people out there helping these people get better. ★

Nursery Painting and Wedding Rings

It's official. My wedding rings no longer fit. I almost wanted to cry this morning when they wouldn't go on my finger. Yes, they've been tight since the holidays. Now, I can't get them on at all! So sad. So I've put them on my chain with my cross. I still had to wear them! I couldn't just put them away until they fit again.

We're really going to work on the nursery tomorrow. I've been getting small things together. Mostly deciding where everything goes. But tomorrow, the painters are coming. Jacob and I went back and forth on this too! We are so indecisive when it comes to things for our little girl. But we decided on a pale green. It goes well with the bedding we picked out.

I can't wait until the painters come and work their magic. Jacob moved all the furniture this morning. And we're ready. The day after tomorrow, we're definitely going to put everything together. I can't believe it! But we're less than a month away from meeting our little girl! ★

My Sweet Husband

Jacob has been wonderful. Thursday, we went on a date night. Jacob planned everything out. All I did, was go buy a new dress to wear. And it was amazing. Just a quiet dinner at our favorite restaurant. And a live play that I've been wanting to see.

Friday night, after 11pm, he went to Wal-Mart. Because I had a serious craving for cucumbers and tomatoes. By the time he got home, I was asleep. Then on Saturday morning at 5am, he went back to buy some kiwi. I woke up craving it!

Tonight, I found him reading "What to Expect When You're Expecting." Love it! And when I asked him about it, he told me this. "I love you. And what you're doing for us. I'm sorry that you have to go through all of this. But I'm glad we're having a baby." I started to cry. He's so sweet! I love that Jacob is just as excited about our baby as I am. ★

Importance of a Name

Yay! Jacob is back. He got back on Monday. And I'm so happy! Life just seems better all of a sudden. :)

We're still debating a name for our baby girl. We have a list. A pretty lengthy list to be honest. And we can't seem to agree on a name. It's real sad. We're actually thinking about naming our little girl after Jacob's granny. We're both liking that idea. And her name is beautiful.

If you are a parent, did you feel this HUGE sense of responsibility when naming your child? Because I feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders. All over a name. Jacob keeps telling me to relax. That it will come to us. He thinks we should narrow our list down to 4 or 5 names. Then when our daughter is born, we'll just know. I hope it's that easy! ★
