First of all, Amber Lion
, my DH did the SAME THING one night! It was hilarious. LeurMaman
- I am so sorry to hear how your DH is treating your children. Triple07
- Happy B'Day to your cute little DS!TaraRae
- We painted the nursery yesterday, too. Well, DH did most of the painting, honestly. I did a lot of taping and edging. Right now we have three yellow walls, and one green wall. The wall opposite the green wall will be painted with vertical stripes tonight if we feel the paint has cured enough.Carrie
, how long did you wait to paint your stripes over the base coat? Do you have any advice for us?
I really enjoyed seeing my friend from California. I found out she's TTC and could possibly be pregnant right now. I'm so excited for her, but sad that she lives so far away. She brought lots of cute stuff for the baby.
Big news - we finally ordered our crib and dresser. They should arrive no later than six weeks from now. We went with Bonavita Metro, which had DH singing the Berlin song all weekend.
We also test drove some strollers, and I think we decided on one that's really light and easy to fold up. The only problem is that it has a matching infant car seat, that DH really wants. That means I have to start over on my car seat research!!!
: I had decided on a convertible carseat that was rated high on Consumer Reports, but DH really wants the infant carseat that fits into the stroller. We plan on babywearing, so I don't see what the big deal is about being able to fit the carseat into the stroller, anyway! At least car seats are the hot topic of the Chit Chat thread this week; it's good to get all these perspectives and resources.
I stayed up late working on my beads (DH helped, he's so helpful lately). I'm going to try to get to the post office during lunch today. I have to work an extended shift today and tomorrow, that's the only sucky thing about this week, though. We're going to the family cabin at the lake Friday, and I can't wait!!! I'm going to finally be able to go swimming!
