185 days?????

This is Allison

Wow, everytime I visit the blog, my immediate attention focuses on the baby ticker. So now we're down to 185 days to go. Really??? Wow. Seems unreal. In one sense, it seems like May will take forever to get here when I think of holding my little one in my arms. But on the other hand, when I think of all of the things we need to in, baby room, buying things, going to parenting classes (yes, we need to do this), making decisions about childcare or not, just getting prepared in seems like we don't really have that much time. Kind of a scary thought. But, people have been doing this for quite a while, so I'm not the first, don't want to make it seem like I'm the only one. LOL. I almost feel like the real progress will start when we find out the gender. Then we can focus on names, theme (if i even have one) and start buying certain items. We should be able to find out the gender the week before Christmas. So, it will be a nice birthday and Christmas present. So very exciting.

I was just thinking the other day how a baby is going to change our lives. I know things will never be the same. But in a good way. A wonderful way. I'm so looking forward to it. Then I started thinking.....I wonder how our Thanksgiving will be next year. How will our Christmas be next year? It's going to be great and amazing. :)

Until next time.....

Children definitely change the way you live. I make sacrifices all the time for my children, they are my world.

One thing I did when I was expecting is to buy a pack of diapers every week (usually size 2 & up because at baby showers you usually get the newborn and size 1) that way when the baby gets here you shouldn't need to buy diapers for a while.

Keep us updated on everything. Maybe when you come to NC we can get together.

Girl, it WILL go by quickly - and so will time AFTER the baby comes. I blink, and it changes.

So excited for you ALL!

Its always good to keep a close eye on that ticker.. one day you will go in panic mode when it is down to double digits!

So exciting to find out the sex..I will be staying tuned for that big day :)
