Is the weather bad where y'all are? The wind here is super-gusty (and it's normally gusty out here). It's got my two cats really wound up. I've had an annoying cough for the past few days. My kitten that I adopted on the 4th had kennel cough and I feel just like I believe he did. Thankfully, he's all better and he didn't give it to my older cat. He purrs for the vet and she tries to bite the vet's hand off!
I went baby stuff window shopping the weekend and was worn out by it. I showed hubby the items I really liked online, but he's really swayed by website reviews and wanted to change everything I liked to only things with 5 star reviews. Even more exhausting lol. I know that once my grandma sees my wish list, she's going to upgrade whatever hubby picks anyway, so we'll probably end up with the lower-rated, but more expensive items. (He'll make us exchange them, I'm sure.)
My biggest disappointment was bedding/theme selections. I just want some nice chocolates and tans that I can accentuate with blue, so I can reuse the decor for our next child, who I hope will be a girl. Since we will likely be trying for baby number 2 within the next two years (fertility issues have already raised their ugly heads, we are older -- 35 (me) and 42 (DH) by delivery, and we would like to have both babies before hubby retires from the military), I don't want to spend the cash on doing gender-specific themes. But everything seems to have lime green in it and I really dislike bright greens. Plus I don't like pink and green together, so then I wouldn't reuse it out of pickiness. My friends suggesting building my own theme by shopping selectively, but I'd so much rather buy a put together set and personalize it, rather than spend time and energy on designing from scratch. What websites or stores inspire you? So far, I've looked at a few web only sites and Babies R Us in-store and online. The few things I did like were all out of stock. *sigh*
My mom already bought our baby's first toy and first outfits. She found a couple items with penguins on them and since DH likes penguins, she snapped them up. But the animal theme I had in mind is monkey.
JJorn -- ouch! I hope the appointment is as quick and painless as possible and biopsy results are conclusive but not bearing bad news!
