Signs of Nesting...

- passing along some of Russell's outgrown baby/ toddler clothing to make room for Baby Girl's clothing

- giving Dan the evil-eye any time he mentions moving, even if he is thinking 2-5 years in the future

- trying to figure out how to fit both Russell's twin bed and a crib in the second bedroom... we'll be (hopefully) getting rid of our bedroom set (it attracts dust so badly, anyway), and moving the sofa chair into our room. Ta Da!

- we ordered a brand-new jogging stroller! I looked at the gold-standard, the Bob Revolution, and I just didn't like the short torso space between kiddo's seat and the sun-shade. I found a Baby Jogger online for the price I wanted and the style I wanted (discount because it was the '07/'08 model year). We donated Russell's well-used stroller a little while ago so my conscious is clear with this purchase;-)

- rereading the birthing packet we got from Russell's birth class in '05. I looked at the hospital's birthing classes, and the next one open is November/December. Oh well. In the middle of it all, you forget everything anyway;-)

- reading and rereading the baby name book. We're still convinced we should let the girl name herself...

So glad to hear you making preparations! It is fun, isn't it? I've been looking for some Raggety Anne fabric for a quilt. Browns and reds okay? The room will work and be cute.

Yay for getting a new jogger stroller! I'm sure that the room situation will work out just fine.

Glad to hear everything is going well.

Bug wants to name the baby SweatHeart. I am sure he wont mind if you steal the idea....LOL

We never made it to a birthing class with Bug. There was a hospital five miles down the road from where we lived but since we were going to the city for Bug(due to high risk) the local hospital wouldn't allow us to attend their classes b/c we weren't delivering there. Stupid.

We ended up getting dvd's. But didn't get through them b/c of the emergency c/s. gave birth once without a class. dont really need it a second time around right....c/s are totally different anyways.

Will be putting Bug in the sibling to be class. That will be fun for him.
