(Clarification- My mom actually doesn't own a monogramming machine. She is taking everything to a boutique and paying to have them monogrammed. Yes, I too wished one of us had a machine as well! Ha, ha!)
David and I- 30 weeks pregnant- heading out to childbirth classes, part-two.
This last Saturday, David and I attended the second portion of our childbirth classes. We had a great time and met some really nice couples. David loved this portion of the class because it dealt with bringing the baby home and how to care for it post-partem. He prided himself on his ability to wrap up the baby doll in a baby burrito. The baby dolls were a hoot and kept us all laughing. I mean, seriously, you cannot keep a straight face when you are practicing cleaning a circumcision on a plastic penis. : ) Anyway, David loved showing off his parenting skills. When the instructor finally noticed his expertice, he informed her that he practically raised four nieces an nephews himself, thank you very much. He was cute about all of it. : )
My parents kept Bichon for us- Lord forbid our dog, (ahem.. daughter) stay alone on a Saturday. Ha! Mom had fun dressing her up in Harbor's bibs. She is one spoiled little lady. And we love her!!! : )
While picking up Bichon after class, I sat on the couch for a minute with my dad. Being an only child definitely made me feel an incredible bond with my parents. I know some kids disliked being an only, but I can honestly say I LOVED it!! David is the youngest of six kids and since I am an only, we definitely have a different relationship with our parents. Not good or bad- just different. He has to share his parents and I don't. Ha! : ) My mom is my best friend in the whole world and I am a daddy's girl to the core. My dad can do no wrong in my eyes, and my mom is about perfect. : ) Anyway, after sitting down, Harbor developed a serious case of the hiccups. It was neat to be able to share that experience with my dad. My dad was a bit amazed at the whole process and I know he is excited about meeting his little grandson.
Mom's nursery is really coming along. Here is the rocker she recovered in animal print and a fun area rug she is using in his room. We went fabric shopping this weekend with my granny and she also bought some funky fringe to add to her bedding, so no finished pictures yet, but here is a sneek peek of what is finished.
My mom is definitely addicted to monogramming. I think at this point, she is buying things just to have something to monogram. Of course, I love it! She is really the best! Thanks, mom! : )
