Attention ALL Mommies

Alright. The panic mode is kicking in! Do I have what I need? What am I going to do with this baby once we get home? I know we all say we have baby-sat, but there is just something different about your baby being the one up all night crying and upset. This is a little person that I am now fully responsible for!!! My mom is planning to be here for at least a week, but it could be as much as 2 1/2 weeks, depending on when the little bit arrives. I am trying to get some meals made and put in the freezer for nights we need something to eat. I feel like I have everything set up and almost in order, I am just waiting on the chair to be recovered for the nursery. Bag packed. Check. Well, almost...there is a list of some things I need to grab. "Call" list made. Check "To Do" list on the way out the door. Check. Arrangements for our puppy girls. Check. I am getting my car cleaned today and then installing the car seat. You think you think of EVERYTHING....and then it hits you like a ton of brinks.... So, I am asking for advice on:

-Things you wish you would have known.
-Any tips you have.
-Must haves.
-Things you had, but never used.
-What I need at the hospital.
-What I need once I get home.
-Things I can do now to make my life easier in a couple of weeks.
-Whatever you've got...hit me with it!!!!

Under Construction

Just as I am a constant piece of work....This blog was needing some work, too- a face lift and some other updates. In the process I learned that apparently I need to update some things on our home computer and some other things that are, quite frankly, way over my computer illiterate head!!! SO...please bear with me. I lost many of the links in the sidebar and some other things as I started making changes. However, I am making some progress! I am trying to get it all taken care of so we can have a cute new blog.

Birthday Boy
I am not allowed to make a big deal out Flint's birthday, so this post is a little delayed. We have a deal- since he hates his birthday and I happen to love my birthday. If I make a big deal out of his, he will not make a big deal out of mine! It is a fair trade, I guess. I just do not understand why he always wants to keep his special day on the down low?!?! I still think he had a fun day and deep down enjoys a little birthday attention. Here he is at lunch with the folks from work. I also surprised him and took homemade cupcakes to his office. The girls in his office found some old Kanakuk pictures on Facebook, printed them, and made posters which were hung up all over his office building for coaches, athletes, EVERYONE to see!!! I think that embarrassed him. I reassured the Flintastic that I had NOTHING to with it....except joining in the laughing!!! We had a low key evening, just the two of us, at Chick-Fil-A and then we went to pick him out some basketball shoes. That is what he wanted!
So, Happy Late Birthday, Babe! I love you bunches! I am so proud of you and I thank God that He made you just for me!!!
Flint and I a year ago- at a Razorback Basketball Game before we moved to Texas. That is how we celebrated his birthday last year.
February is a big month for birthdays.
First Flint, then my best friend, Laura!
This wish is a little late, too, but I want Laura to know how much she means to me! She is such a dear and loyal friend. I love her to pieces! She lives in Dallas, too, so enjoy living so much closer to her! This is Laura with her hubby, Brad. We went to the Melting Pot with them not too long back while we were in the DFW Metroplex. I LOVE that place!
Me and Laura at Disneyland-
Our girls' trip to L.A./Orange County
Here we are at the infamous Sprinkles in Beverly Hills.
Now there is one in Dallas and I stop there all the time! Even my dogs LOVE their Sprinkles!
Speaking of Puppy Dogs.....
Somebody Turned 10!!!!!!!!!!!
Yep, our little Katie! You would not know it by the way she acts. But personally, I am glad she does not act like a 70 year old!!! We had a little party for her. Her friend Bella the Beagle came over and we gave all of the pups a doggie scone! Actually, Bella's mom and Bella just happened to be at our house to hang out...we did not throw a dog birthday party! But that would have made this post much more humerous!!!
Look how excited Katie is!!! Isn't she cute!!!
Katie about to blow out her candle...or just dig in fire and all!!!!!!!

Sneak Peek

It is my Type A personality side coming out not to want to show things off until they are completely finished and to my standard of perfection. However, I have had several requests to see the nursery. SO, I am only giving you a sneak peek! Hopefully very very soon, I will have it cleaned and all of the gifts put away and will be ready to show it off!!! I must say...I really do LOVE it!!!
