Baby time

So, you can all read this post and laugh and poke fun all you want, but I am happy so there! The other day I bought my first real baby item (not including the clothing I have purchased here and there because they were on sale). I bought a stroller! It was super exciting and made the fact that I am having a baby more real. I got it on sale (thank heavens, it was super overly expensive) at Babies R' Us. I had been looking at this kind for a while now and I really liked certain patterns from Graco, but found it hard to find a place that carried the patterns I liked. Sears only carried the "Samuel" collection, and like it's name, I found it to be quite masculine. Anyways, it doesn't matter now, because I found everything I want at Babies R' Us, all in the pattern I like. I registered there (another thing I am a little early for but whatever), and hopefully the pack and play (which I am eyeing next) comes in stock soon.

So yea, I brought home the stroller and the next day I set it up and now it's all ready for baby, who arrives in like 178 days or something rediculous like that. I suppose it will find its way to the storage closet for a bit, but for now, it's in my living room. I love it.Side note: yes that is a baby toy I have attached to the handle. I am the readiest mummy ever! Side side note: Check what's on the TV. Yup, it's Wii. Josh finally found one. He's pretty excited. I suppose I was too. I now have constant tennis elbow tho. I went for a massage last night and told my girl that I probably have knots from bowling etc. She just laughed.
Oh, and I made my appointment for UCBaby. It's March 27th and I have a hard time knowing it's sooo far away. Not really tho I suppose. I can wait! Looking forward to feeling baby kick sometime soon tho, maybe as early as a week or two from now. Hope you all are doing well. Hope to see you all soon.

Julia you are so funny! I am sooo happy for you. The first kick is something you will have to write in your Journal because you will never want to forget it. I love look back at the journal that we kept for Ethan and it brings me back to when I was pregnant. Good luck..

Hey Jules-- good pick on the hip stroller! I like your taste. I am sure you will have a billion more fun things liek this by the time she is here.-- Yes, I think it is a girl. ;) And I think Jo will have a boy. ;)
When are you coming to UTAH again?

I love how prepared you are! I did all my registering online like at 3 months and I got my stroller at 6 months. I was so super eager to have everything early! Heck..the crib was up in August and he was due in November!!!
You're doing great in the preparation! You have extremely great taste!!
So jealous that you have a Wii. I told Graeme that it's what I want for my birthday though!!
Can't wait to hear about the kicking!!

I love the stroller, it is so nice. I am so confused though, I think my appointment might be a day after yours of the same day--not that it matters, but I thought I had to be that far along so they could get a better reading. Anyways, I love the cute stroller and hooray for wii

So, I got my first stroller like 2 years before I had Tate! :) I know how you feel! Then... I ended up selling it and bought a different one. I like the one you got a lot! That might be one of my favorite things ever... pushing my baby in his stoller! It's the best! Too bad I won't be around to do some "strolling" with you! Can't wait to see the next Baby Blakeney purchase! I love the black and white blog!
