Sorry I disappeared, but I have a good excuse....

Our little prince arrived on April 20th so I have been a little busy.

Mini K simply adores her little brother and Baby C has actually been letting us get a little sleep. Speaking of sleep, I am off to to catch a nap before Baby C's next feeding.

I promise I will do an actual post tomorrow!

Still Waiting

I have taken advantage of still waiting on this baby to try and get some last minute things done! That is the glass is half full version...it also means in between doctor's visits and monitoring I am beyond frustrated and impatient!

We took Mini K to a sibling class at the hospital so she could get used to the idea of bringing her baby brother home. She had one demand...no baby pool this summer because she can swim and it is well...for babies!
Mini K practicing her big sister skills.

I may have also done a little retail therapy...not as good as pain medicine, but I am saving that for when I really need it.

Tom's for Mini K...she LOVED knowing that another child got a pair as well

Mini #2 will follow clearly be followign in big sister's preppy style...if only Lilly made baby boy's clothes...HINT HINT

I couldn't decide so I purchased both!

Baby Watch Has Begun

Today started with my weekly doctor's appointment. I had planned on being in and out in 30 minutes so i could get back to processing PGG orders and my day job with only a week to go before my scheduled induction. It seems Mini #2 had other plans, so off to the hospital I went.

No I didn't have the baby today, but it now seems that NO ONE thinks I will make it until next Tuesday. It seems Mini #2 has decided that he is outgrowing me...I have lost 4lbs in the last 5 days (now why can't I do this when I am NOT pregnant?) but Mini #2 has gained 3 ounces and is now running out of room. I may or may not have said in my ot loud voice that I could hae told you that! I am choosing to blame baby brain.

We are as ready as we can be and I have started to plan what I want for summer post baby....there are only so many blue baby clothes I can look at ladies! It's almost Lilly time and I cannot wait!!!!

Advice Needed ASAP!!!!!!!

I completely forgot a birthday...and not just any birthday but the glue of our family...our nanny's birthday!!!!!!!! Mini K pointed it out to me on our family schedule and I literally cried.

I have narrowed it down to 2 choices and I am choosing to blame baby brain for my lack of ability to make a decision.

Choice #1
This Lagos key necklace
Choice #2
Tory Burch Cat's Eye Sunglasses
Both are classics and chic...just like our dear Miss J who is now 21 and almost a senior in college. One of the biggest blessings this year has been her presence in Mini K's life. I love knowing that when I am not with her and she is not at school she is with a woman who handles herself in the exact same manner I would want. Plus, there is also the fact that we haven't been able to get Miss B to abandon her husband and new fabulous job in Phoenix to come work for us!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So which one should I pick up tomorrow? And friends, bear with me...just a few more days and I can go back to my normal brain with a new addition to our family!

Just What The Doctor Ordered...

I am ready to give this baby his eviction notice. I head back to the doctor tomorrow...with the sincere hope that we can move the induction date up!

Tonight though, I was able to FINALLY catch up with the fabulous Landlocked Mermaid. We went for a long walk on the mall. I must admit, since we moved across the river this is not something I do enough...it is so pretty in the spring! I also forget how much fun it is to catch up over exercise...or maybe it just because I have no room left in my tummy and I cannot drink! I hope this is the start of of many walks with her this summ
er. She is such an amazing lady...her cup is always half full and she always tells it like it is. I am blessed to know her.

So many of you have DM'ed me on twitter or emailed me to ask what I decided to put in the Easter baskets this year. I have a strange aversion to putting food in the baskets. This year I ended up going with lip balm, personalized yoga pants and matching ponytail holders. All courtesy of etsy sellers that I will be ordering from again. I think these yoga pants might become my go to little girls to tween gift. I would even wear them myself!
I can feel my eyelids getting heavy so I am going to sign off tonight. I hope everyone is having a great week!

Happy Easter to all of you! As you can tell Mini K had the best time hunting for eggs with her cousins! I hope you had a great day with your friends and family.

The Bedding Arrived...The Postman Can Go

I have been waiting for the postman to deliver our crib bedding all week. It shipped last Friday and needless to say I was fine until Wednesday...then the panic set in. It was shipped USPS priority mail, or as Mr. Grove calls it "slow boat to China in a red, white and blue box."

It finally arrived yesterday and I LOVE IT!!!!!! I did Mini K's nursery in what else...pink and green, so we obviously knew we would not be using her bedding for Mini #2. A boy in a pink and green nursery would not fly with Mr. G.

I found a great seller on etsy and designed a set that I like now even more than when I ordered it. I was so excited to put it on the crib. Obviously we are still missing one thing: a crib sheet so consider these photos a work in progress.

The nursery also has a twin bed and I had a decorator friend make a european sham and had the amazingly talented Debbie at Whyte House Monograms, well monogram it! The result..a perfect match!

Clearly, while I left the pink for Mini K, the lime green can do no wrong.

I promise to post the final photos once I finish the nursery.
