One week from today, we should find out WHO we are expecting. And who it is that makes me crave chips and salsa on a daily basis. Hopefully he/she is wiggling around enough to let us in on their identity. It feels a bit surreal to know that I'll be at the halfway mark on Sunday - the time feels like it's flying. But I am so ready to know if it's a little Jacob or a little Ruby that will be in our arms in just a little over four months.
In the mean time I've been sorting through baby stuff. I have a pile of everything that needs to be washed and cleaned out and made ready for a new little one. I've made lists of the things we will need all over again. And I'm grateful for friends who have already offered to throw me a baby shower - girl or boy.
A couple of weekends ago, I sorted through buckets full of baby boy clothes. I admit, I got a little teary remembering Tommy in some of those precious onesies and silly outfits I had to have for him. I had so much of it though that I decided to get rid of everything he never wore or anything I didn't like.
But we are all set. I found a cheap dresser at a garage sale. An inexpensive (Pottery Barn brand) changing table online. And some friends gave us a crib. Nothing matches, but everything will be painted and refinished once we find out WHO we are expecting. I have a couple of fun nursery ideas in mind, though it's going to have to be done on a very tight budget!
