Baby Name Game #15

DRALNGHICD _ _ _ _ _ (_) _ _ _ _

Seems some smarty pants family members think they have the name figured out. After the clue the next week, we'll confirm or deny any guesses. Until then, have fun with this one.

Edited to add: If you got this clue before 8 pm today, it was incorrect! You want the 6th letter here, not the 7th.

Baby Name Game #14

This one is soooo easy.

Only two more clues to go!

Good News!

We're under contract - as long as things go according to plan, we'll sell our house in August. Keep praying!

Buying for Baby

Even though we got all these piles of clothes at the shower -
(I sorted them into piles of 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months, and 9 months up.)

I haven't been able to resist buying a few things for our girl with gift cards. Plus, all the cute summer stuff is on sale now - so I'm just getting her stocked for next year!
I got this onesie as a present for Matt and baby. It says "Daddy rocks...and sings to me!" The little green and pink pants were on clearance at Target.
I loved the bright red - it's not easy to find brighter colors in girl baby clothes.

Won't this be adorable at the beach next summer?

With these two, I couldn't resist the cute non-pink colors. We love pink around here, but it's nice to have some orange and blue too.

I think this one is pretty easy. Maybe we should have mixed up the letters more.

And, for a bonus, here's a not great picture of me at 32 weeks (taken on Sunday).

Oh, and we're still praying to finalize things with the buyer for our house. We've verbally accepted an offer, and are very anxious to get something on paper. (Of course, we've been here before, and it's fallen apart...) I'm just praying for God's will.

Where we're at with the little lady

Tomorrow I'll be 32 weeks! That means 8 weeks to go until the due date, and much to be done before then. Thanks to the generosity of family members and shower attendees, we've got plenty of clothes and toys, even shoes! We got three packs of diapers last weekend, the crib has been ordered, the travel system (stroller and car seat) purchased and put together (but not installed in the car yet), and the cradle is waiting to be moved into our room.

Next weekend we do the "expectant parents" tour of the hospital, and we start our childbirth/childcare classes in August. Hopefully she won't come early, or we won't know what we're doing. On Sunday, we hope to get her little chest of drawers painted pink, and then I'll start washing clothes and putting them away.

There's still things we need to shop for - thankfully we have a lot of gift cards! She has no toiletries, like shampoo or cotton balls. We only have one curtain panel and no crib skirt. We need a crib mattress and a comfy chair for feeding and storytime. Hm...this is making me excited to go shopping!

We have what we think is (yet again) a prospective buyer for our house. Pray that she will accept our counteroffer - which will be a significant loss for us, but we want to be done with this!
