Operation Baby Room Complete

The finishing touches have been made. So.....Operation Baby Room is complete!!!!!!!!!!!! Joe has hung the new blinds. And if you can tell he put up some nautical rope inbetween the two colors. Love the it love it love it!!! I think that we are as prepared as we can be. But I'm sure being first time parents there are bound to be some things that are missed. I need to make a list of things that we are missing just to be sure that we have all of the neccessities.
But for now we are just awaiting the arrival of our little man. Just 3 short weeks left. I cannot wait!

So here is a lovely pregnancy dream that I had recently....

I woke up and discovered that I wasn't pregnant anymore. I found Joe in the baby's room and said, "Honey, I'm not pregnant anymore!" And he said, "I know!!!" And then I noticed that I was even thinner than I was before I got pregnant. (Every woman's dream) So I relayed that to Joe and he said, "I know!!!" So I asked where the baby was and he said that he was at the hospital still and that we should go see him. So we got in the car and drove to the hospital. I was so excited cause I was finally going to see what he looked like. =) So we are walking down the hall and all of a sudden Joe disappears. I go looking for him all over the hospital and where do I find him? In the cafeteria of all places! I asked him what he was doing and he said that they were short staffed in the cafeteria and he was helping them out. Oh the life of a chef! I just stared at him in disbelief. He said to go on up to the maternity ward and see the baby and that he would be up shortly. Of course my alarm went off just as I was going to see the baby. Guess I'll have to wait another three weeks to see my little man. At least this wasn't some crazy nightmare and just a funny dream.

Happy Birthday Grandma Davis!!!!

Grandma Davis' 90th birthday was back in March. And we all (meaning her large amount of offspring) decided to throw her a big celebration. We had family in town as far away as Delaware on the east and California to the west. It was great to get to hang out with family on Joe's side that we don't typically get to see. We had a luncheon downtown at the Lion House and then back to Grandma's for a HUGE-O family gathering. Check out the grand cake that Joe made for her. We decided that 90 candles might be a bit extreme so we put enough on for her to get the general idea. We must have had a minimum of 50 or so people. Since it was Easter weekend we also had a big egg hunt for all of her great grandkids to participate in. There was also a photographer there to take family pictures. As soon as I get my hands on the disc I'll post some of the pictures. All of Joe's sisters and brother were able to make it with there families. What a wonderful excuse to all get together!
Ninety is such a milestone! Grandma Davis is a blessing in all of our lives. She keeps us updated on the latest and greatest going ons in the family and keeps us all connected. She had such a grand time this past weekend and received some wonderful gifts.

Ok....things that one should NEVER say to a pregnant woman:

  • Are you sure you aren't having twins?
  • You haven't had your baby yet? (Especially when the pregnant women has quite a few weeks left to go)
  • It's are only going to get bigger.
  • WOW! Have your feet always been that big?
  • Your kid is going to be H-U-G-E! That is really going to hurt.

These things have actually been said to me on more than one occasion. BLAH! And a word to all of you out there that have had or have heard of really scary or abnormal pregnancies....I really don't want to hear about them right now. After I've given birth you can tell me all the stories you want to. Oh, and one more thing....DON'T STARE AT A PREGNANT WOMAN!!!! She (I) already feels subconscious about the way she looks and you are not helping!

K...I feel better...thanks for listening to my vent session!
