Ah! A weekend!

I do not like working weekends, and I hate working nights. Last weekend just sucked for me. This weekend is much better! I was lazy this morning and not doing much of anything. Hubby even cooked my breakfast. What a sweetheart! We took pups over to the dog park this afternoon. That wore them out for the rest of the day! After we got back, everyone napped. This evening we went out to dinner, where Hubby had enough alcohol for the second part of our evening: Wandering though the baby section at Tar.get.

I think we are both a little weirded out to be one of the many young couples shopping for baby stuff. This is also a section of the store we avoided like the plague for the past decade. It does not help that we are about 10 years older than many of the other couples shopping for baby stuff. We felt a little out of place, but we knew we have to get used to going through there. We left without buying anything. I am just not ready to buy stuff quite yet. It was enough of a feat just wandering through those aisles.

I have started looking at baby stuff online, as well. I loved the Dr Seuss crib sheets at Pottery Barn Kids. I thought they are just wonderful, and I may do my entire nursery in Dr Seuss. The nursery is more for me than the baby, anyway. And I love Dr Seuss! I think between my mother and I, we can get some Dr Seuss characters up on the walls. And I love the bright colors.

The rest of the nursery may take a bit more thought. I think I am going to have to go and actually look at cribs at some point. I think I am going to start with the crib, and move out from there. Tar.get has some nice cribs at reasonable prices. I am looking at the Da.vinci line, mostly. They seem to have pretty good reviews. I sort of like the idea of a convertible crib, and Tar.get has some nice ones, for reasonable prices. I sort of like the Ana.stasia crib. It is awfully pretty. If I could get it in a lighter finish, I would like it better. I also sort of like the Em.ily crib, though it is a stationary crib, with no drop down rail. Not sure about that, but I think I am tall enough that it would not be a problem. Our Tar.get does not have a huge baby section, apparently. they did not have any of the cribs I was interested in on display. I have a hunch I may order the crib online.

In other news, my first actual OB appointment is June 15. I will let you know how it goes. I have a hunch I will actually be meeting with the nurse, not Dr Sweetness. I guess that will be all right The first visit is likely going to be just bloodwork and an interview. Only if I am really lucky will there be an ultrasound. I think it is fairly doubtful, though.

Tomorrow I hopefully will be able to get the house clean and the grocery shopping done. The rest of the day I will hopefully be lazy.

I think a Dr S nursery would be awesome! Our first trek to the Target baby section resulted in us being slack-jawed and hurrying away from it.

Enjoy your weekend!

I have the Anastasia crib in Honey, it's beautiful. I love the sturdyness of it and the look

You are so brave to have already gone and wandered around!!! We still haven't gone anywhere near any baby stores. I am also weirded out about being so much older than most new parents-to-be. It's entirely possible that the baby will be here before we have any baby furniture!
