I'm on the Internet!!

Well, I feel totally out of the loop!  I've been able to read some blogs on my phone, but haven't been able to figure out the mobile blogging.  They say it's possible, but I don't have the patience to learn how.  I came to work with Farmboy today, so I'm borrowing their internet. :)  Here's a little bit of what's been going on in our world.  We've been working on the nursery some more.
This is the rocker/recliner we decided to get.  It's really nice and cushy!  Plus it's big enough to hold FB's long body comfortably.

My brother and sister-in-law gave us all of these goodies.  2 swings, 2 car seats with 3 matching bases, stroller to match, a bumbo, and a bouncy sleeper.  It's really really nice having a nephew about a year older than Daisy! :)  Just old enough to be growing out of stuff.  

These are the curtains.  I couldn't get a good picture though.  I think I should have waited for night.  They were made for my house, when I lived by myself and could have pink curtains in the living room.  They've been in storage since I sold my house three years ago, so I'm really glad they're back in use!


We were also very blessed to receive two big boxes full of clothes!  A parent at my school gave them to us, she was so thoughtful and sweet.  She wouldn't let me pay her for any of it.  Now I've got a huge wardrobe of 0-3 month stuff that goes from hot to cold weather.  This is just one washer load of onesies and lightweight stuff to get her started.  I haven't washed any of the winter stuff yet.

Our baby shower is next weekend, so I'm looking forward to that!  Hopefully after that we'll be completely ready for Daisy.  If not, I'll be doing a little shopping to get us ready. :)  I've tried really hard not to buy stuff until then, but it's so hard.  Everything baby is so tempting to just pick up here and there.
This came in the mail yesterday!  Now Daisy will be ready to hit the road, or at least her stuff will be.  I'm not sure how soon this mama will be ready to hit the road w/ her, but we'll be ready when that day comes.  I found this on etsy.com.  One of my new favorite obsessions, well obsessions when I'm around internet connectivity!
For the most part this is what Holly and I have been up to this summer.  We both have decided it's entirely too hot (100's) to do any actual work around the house.  I think the weatherman said it hasn't been this hot for this long since 1954.  Guess that just adds to the future baby stories I get to tell my lil' girl.  ...When you were born it was the hottest summer on record...  I always loved when Mom would tell my baby story.  Anybody else get to hear their story, every single birthday?

The nursery looks great! You're so lucky that people gave you baby gear and clothes! It's fun to buy stuff on your own too, but baby stuff is SO expensive, so it will definitely save you a lot of money. After my baby shower, I took all the tags off, washed and put away all the clothes we got and it took FOREVER!

Have a wonderful time at your baby shower! :)
