God Provides!

We've started camp...so the staff for the summer are here. One of the staff girls is a cousin of Martain's...she is so fun! Her day off was today so she came down to our house to help me a bit. We went to the store for curtain rods, installed them and then attempted to put the crib together so I could decorate it with the adorable bedding collection we just got. Well...the crib sort of fell apart, at least one side of it...the last side I might add, so it looks more like a mini-day bed instead of a crib.

We adorned the broken crib anyway because I wanted to see it all together. Sorry I don't have a pic yet.

Well - the Lord is already providing for another crib! PTL!

Actually We already have several pieces (big ticket items) that have been gifted to us.

from my bro and sis in law

Double Stroller
High Chair
Two car seats (although they are out dated)

from a friend in Ohio that works at Graco
New Graco Car seat and base
New Graco stroller

from some friends here in PA

New Crib

We are just so thankful fro all the Lord has provided!

Bedding Collection for the Baby

I have been trying to figure out what theme I was really going to settle on for this little girl due to arrive the beginning of October.
Originally I wanted to do Mickey and Minnie Mouse...however..I am limited by my color scheme...The carpet is red, we painted the walls a Khaki color and all the trim is white. Most of the Minnie Mouse stuff is Pink and Purple....and not my favorite anyway!

I started looking online and came across a cute collection that had a few Ladybugs on it...

it was a pretty good deal - about $100 off the original price. Then my friend Jenny found it on another site for another $20 off...

I thought, hm, I should just check ebay...just in case...
well - I DID find it, and though I have NEVER bought anything on ebay before...my wonderful husband has...so I called him at work...he bid on it...and we got it!
Oh and it was another $50 off of the cheapest I had seen online....so for $90 - I am getting a nine piece bedding collection for my little ladybug!

What fun!

Well, I feel like I officially look pregnant. Up until now I was feeling more like I just looked chubby.

*Fun* things that I have been noticing... (*insert sarcasm)

my belly has gotten big enough I can no longer see my toes, without bending over a little.

I can't sit for very long or I get numb bum! (thanks baby Fergie!)

Since my belly is visible...it is being touched, by other people. It's funny how well people THINK they know you....maybe I should rephrase that, it's funny how people think that you are such good friends...good enough to come up and rub your belly. I KNEW it was going to happen...I just had my hopes that maybe since I haven't lived here all that long people might keep their distance...no such luck. Funny though, I don't think this would bother me as much in Minnesota.

I get spurts of energy as well as a crazy desire to clean...and then I wear myself out! At least some cleaning gets done.....

I can't sleep on my stomach or my back...which is actually really annoying...but I eventually get comfortable enough I can fall asleep.

My little girl loves to punch and kick mommy just as soon as mommy wants to rest, take a nap, or go to bed....I hope that doesn't keep up after she's born!
