As we were in the garage unpacking these boxes, one of the neighborhood girls came over to visit. We live in a townhouse, and the house directly behind us (we share main walls) has 3 kids -- Andreah, Avery and Alese. Alese is the same age as our niece, Abby - that is 5. She likes to chat chat chat to us all the time. So Alese was watching us open these nursery items and I told her "Alese, guess what? We are going to have a baby!". Her eyes were priceless to watch. She was so in shock and it looked like happy shock. Her eyes got huge, she smiled really big, and after a few seconds said, "maybe the baby will be one of my friends!". I said of course! I also told her the baby would be here after the snow came and then is starting to melt, and that it is due right around Easter! (Actually the due date is the Tuesday before Easter Sunday). Alese said, "well, maybe you should dress the baby up in an Easter bunny costume!". We all laughed, and then I turned to CJ and said "actually, that might be a cute baby announcement: maybe put Keifer in an egg?". Alese heard this and piped us, "Maybe you should put the baby in an Easter basket!". So who knows, maybe we'll do that! LOL
Later, CJ took the dogs out again for their after dinner disposal, and Alese came over to him and said "I know something about your wife!". CJ said, "oh yeah?". She said, "yeah, she's going to have a BABY!". LOL. Out of the mouths of babes.
Today, CJ and I trekked up to Maple Grove where my friends gathered; these were the same friends (and house) where I received my "I'm PG" phone call from my RE clinic. The boys watched the football game, and the girls went to lunch. My friend Kris recently had a gorgeous baby girl, Anna, in May, and had 3 grocery sacks full of maternity clothes for me! It was like heaven for me to dig thru all these clothes! Thanks to Kris, I hopefully will no longer need any more maternity clothes! YAY! Of course, when I got home, I wasted no time in adding them to my newly rearranged closet (along with the new pair of jeans I got on clearance at Gap and the shirt, also on sale!). I should be set, save for a special occasion or two that might be coming up. Also, I have 3 rock concerts to attend in the next 4 months. Any ideas on a cute, funky, "rock star" type shirt that I could look at? Just because I'm PG doesn't mean I don't want to look like a rock mama! LOL
I added the 14 1/2 week fully clothed Keifer belly pic, and look at the stack of new clothes for me to wear thru the winter now!
