So first stop was to get an actual magazine. I ended up with Newsweek. Then, off to find some coffee and a bagel. That would be Lemonjello's in Holland. I sat there enjoying the coffee and my magazine for a good long while.
Then, becuase I wasn't ready to head home, I went to one of those very fun, but super expensive kid stores in downtown Holland. You know, just to look around and be amazed at the fact that people pay $25 for a white onesie that says, "No Hablo" (I don't talk). Don't get me wrong. It was super cute. And in Spanish none the less, but I am not going to pay $25 for that!
I was very tempted by these gauze receiving blankets though.
But that got me thinking. And then, because I still wasn't ready to come home yet, I stopped at the fabric store. I found some gauze that was on sale, bought three yards, was a pain to the cutting table lady and had her cut them in 1 yard sections and then came home. I simply zigzagged the raw edges and just like that, I had three gauze blankets for about $18 instead of $50.
Today I had a doctor's appointment and when the nurse asked me when baby was due, I said, "Next week" and went, "oh my word! NEXT week!! So today I made granola and tried to get the laundry under control and then Noah told me I needed to sit down. But really, I think we are ready. Well, except for packing the hospital bag. But that's only because I only have a few things that fit.
So, I think I am all caught up on things around here, well, you know, until we all change into our jammies tonight and there are dirty clothes. But really, I think now we are ready for Baby.
