Mr. San Antonio is busy finishing the cradle. And in case it isn't finished in time, we have a dresser drawer primed and ready (we also have a crib - but that's so uncreative).
Countdown until Baby SA has a cradle: TBD (but getting close!)
This past weekend I made a list of things that I "needed" to get in order to feel more ready for the baby to arrive. This included diapers. Because I only have one container of diapers at home (and I've been told that is about 100 too few). Well, as weekends sometimes go, I didn't get to accomplish all the errands on my list - including not getting diapers. Sunday evening was a little rough on Mr. San Antonio as I had a slight break down over the lack of things I accomplished that day.
Monday morning I was reading a devotional that talked about not focusing on our "to do" list but instead to keep our eyes on Jesus and let him direct our days. Well, lo-and-behold, I got to work and my co-workers threw me a surprise diaper shower. How cool is that?
Countdown until I need to buy more newborn size diapers: never
Now I just need to get Internet back up and running at home so I can finally post some pictures of the house! And so I can work from home after Christmas. In the mean time...
Countdown until I get to stop wearing the same maternity clothes over and over and over and over: TBD
