In-case you missed the memo:

It's a boy!

We have officially purchased something baby, and it was fun. Mom bought Baby C two cute little newborn outfits.. and they are so TINY! I can't believe that in about six FIVE?!?! months I'm going to be holding something that little in my arms. It kind of blows my mind.

We also bough a Graco SnugRide Stroller brand new at my favorite consignment store (Nine Months Later). I decided I definitely want the Graco SungRide 35 car seat... just waiting for one to pass through above mentioned consignment store (it's not like we have 6 months to wait or anything). The car seat just clips perfectly into the stroller. It's magical.

No waking baby to move to a stroller, no big/bulky/transformer style stroller. Just simple and inexpensive (comparatively).

Only problem is choosing a pattern. I want your opinion!

#1.


 #2


 #3


 #4


I won't tell you my preference until later.

Anyhoodle, so today we have a snow day from school, which is fabulous because I had to come home yesterday (strep throat) and was going to miss today as well.

This whole being sick, getting better for one week, and then getting sick all over again was old two months ago. I had SO much fun teaching last week because I was well and had energy! It's hard to find joy in things when all your body wants to do is rest and try to get well.

All the sickness aside, today I am going to sit down and tackle this office! I'm moving it completely to the spare bedroom today (sans furniture, because moving a  75 lb  way heavier than I thought desk by myself is a bad idea). But I will be cleaning out both closets, packing up the bookshelves into tubs and "scootching" them into the garage for Hubs to put in the attic, and purging a lot of crap we don't need or use. :o)

Maybe with all the junk organized, and maybe, POSSIBLY a completely clean and sanitized house, I will be able to get good night's rest tonight.

Want to see my bomb diggity list?

Here goes!

Yay for a boy! ...and I really love the second two patterns you have up there for the car-seat. The first one is cute, too, but I think I would get tired of it. That's just me, though.

Very exciting, Kalyn!

Thanks Lyric!! Yay for boys! :D My thoughts exactly on #1. It's uber cute, but I'm afraid I might tire of the pattern after a while.

My choice is #2!! I think it would work well for a girl, too, if that ever happens in the somewhat near future ;)

Love love love #1! #2 is my second pick. Goo luck cleaning today! I need some of that motivation around here. Isn't baby shopping fun?!?!? And I don't have a kid. Haha :)
