This and That

Let me start by saying that today was a freaking AWESOME Mail day. But I still have to take pictures of everything, so just wait another day or so and I will have photos to show.

I received a box from my friend Carrie in Utah, with new pictures of her kids, a pregnancy book that she is passing on to me and we will circulate... a baby CD's and some Green Day CD's that I have been coveting, AND a green gingham crib sheet.

I received a suprise box from a family friend Wanda, and it was LOADED with adorable puppy things for the baby. 2 board books, TONS of blankets she made, and changing pad type blankies, all with puppies. There was a stuffed dog, scrapbooking supplies that have puppies on them, an Adrorable outfit with bibs and hat (dogs too!) for 12 months.... and a cute cute tag blanket. I was so super excited that I couldn't even hardly stop squealing while I opened it.

I also got my lavender swap from shecraftz, and she sent the cutest little lavender booties for the baby, that are all fuzzy and have pawprints on the bottom, and tons of other great stuff like baby announcements and bracelets that she had made, and fibers... plus a great little note.

So the mail was Fabulous today! Yeah!!

Besides that, it's nicer, still cool but sunny. It's also Friday, and even though it's Friday the 13th, I am feeling pretty ok. I slept like a rock last night, only waking up at 7am.... not even ONCE through the night.

Yesterday at work one of the lactation consultants gave me the American Academy of Breastfeeding Book, and I was reading it silly last night. We also watched The Departed, which was excellent. I have to say Leonardo DiCaprio was EXCELLENT. As the pregnant one, what I really wanted to happen was DiCaprio's Character gets the girl and gets to reveal who he really is and they live happily ever after and make babies.... but that's just not edgy enough. LOL. It was really good. The night before last, we watched The Prestige with Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, and Michael Cane. It was also a very good movie. Two Magicians who become rivals and spend the rest of their lives trying to outdo and destroy each other. It was good. Evan and I were hashing out twists and turns almost till the very end.

Let's see, what else? Oh yes, my poor husband is finally getting to be as busy or busier than me! Including him in all the Dr. Appointments, Ultrasounds, and other appointments child related has been nice. I don't feel so stressed out like I have to handle everything. The key is to get him involved from day 1, so he doesn't have to come to me for all the answers. In the next few weeks we meet the daycare provider and the pediatrician, and then we take a CPR Class that includes infant and child CPR. We also have another appointment with the midwife next week. So there's plenty going on. Also keeping him busy around home, helping with dishes and laundry, etc.

Well, everyone have a great weekend!

Seriously, 'The Departed' or 'Los infiltrados' as it's known here, is the best movie ever! I love it. I can't believe you hadn't seen it yet!
