So I arrived in Texas (after a bleeping alarm at 3:30am for a 6:30 flight and after spilling green tea latte on some poor helpless airline passenger) to the cutest and comfiest sleep shirt from my mom:
Also, the hostesses got me the portable swing I registered for, and had it delivered directly to my house (as did a few other guests) so I had some gifts waiting for me at home too..
I can't even begin to imagine these outfits with my baby boy in them, it seems so surreal - I know I keep using that word through the past few months, but it is SO surreal... even when I watch him kick and squirm...
The rest of the trip was just bliss:
...sitting in the warm Texas sun with family friends (whose daughter used to babysit ME when I was a baby!)
...more shopping (where I found THREE MORE bras for around $5 each, bringing my grand total to 7 for under $30!)
...gazing at mini polo onesies and tiny little boat shoes
...crib-shopping with my mom (which was just awesome to do because, hello - with me in NJ and her in TX the whole shopping-together-thing is not very frequent, and it was so great to be able to do baby shopping with her...)
...enjoying Mexican food at our favorite watering hole (they've been informed to have the frozen margaritas ready and waiting!)
So that's it - the Grand Texas post (or a short version of an epic week...)
it's been back to real life: E working his butt off on the bathroom remodel, putting in his blood, sweat and tears (literally - he put the drill into his finger last night and dripped blood on the hardwood floor on his way to my infirmary... lol I can laugh, he's fine now...)
We finished our registry this past weekend, picked out The Crib (I thought this would be so hard!) and The Stroller (E needed to get hands-on testing done!) and are ready to start counting down the days - tomorrow we hit double digits!!!!!
