Happy Valentine’s Day


My Sweetie and I did a quick Valentine’s Exchange this morning, he got his present last week, and I tried to be good and stick with the card. He went wild and I got a gorgeous ring and a card from baby Sophy! I got a little misty. We have a dr’s appt this afternoon and I’m hoping she’s making progress on her delivery date. Tonight, nothing says a day of love in our house like BBQ so we’re heading out for pig for dinner! It’s already an awesome day – I know how lucky I am and I try to be grateful everyday.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

In progress

Midnight journal page since the baby was all riled up one night with the kicking. I’m cheating a little with the large scrapbook pages I can just cover existing journals with for immediate backgrounds then adding the layers. I’m loving the pink, black and white.

We’ve also started the baby prep stocking with food for the freezer. I’m guessing in the first couple of months post delivery I’m not going to be all about the cooking so we’ve started making the “freezes beautifully” items. So far this includes: meatloaf, red beans and sausage (the rice cooked later will be a breeze), lasagna and pumpkin bread. The rest of the week includes pizza dough, chicken stock and chicken pot pie. With my family coming down next weekend if Sophy hasn’t arrived, Mom will probably finish stocking the freezer for a good 6 months!

Mild freak out but off the ledge…

I was starting to have a mild anxiety attack about all of the things left to do before the big baby delivery. In addition, I was just freaking out in general about the upcoming year and what should we be planning? When to start the family vacations? What about the holidays, etc?

I then did a quick check in with the Google Reader and found Pam Garrison’s blog post. Now, a deep breath and back to almost calm.
