|This is the latest belly picture-from last week.|
We went stroller shopping with mom and dad. Turns out dad spent quite a bit of time researching strollers, and knew way more about them than J & I ever knew possible. Merry Christmas to us & Graycen-the new stroller arrived last week & we can't wait to wheel her around in it. Thanks mom & dad!!
Graycen had quite the Christmas and she is not even here yet!! First, I have to share with you what I think is just the cutest...turns out daddy has discovered what shopping for a little girl is like. Once he started, he couldn't stop...

Anywho, it was just like what we pictured. Blankets and pillows on the floor, J sitting behind me as we practiced breathing and massage techniques. I could not keep a straight face or keep the giggles in. About three months from now I am probably going to wish I had taken that part a little more seriously. The majority of the class was in a lecture room, passing around instruments and taking notes. We both learned and heard some things we hadn't heard before. It also made us excited for where we are delivering. Sounds like a great hospital with all private rooms, some with tubs for your comfort, none of which we may see before hand since the flu has cancelled all maternity ward tours. We are scheduled for one just before our due date if it doesn't get cancelled again, and we make it that far. On that note, I am glad we aren't delivering until later. For those delivering between now and mid-March, they have closed the hospital to all visitors unless they are the immediate grandparents. They said back during H1N1 even grandparents weren't allowed. Yikes!! Here is to hoping that for more reasons than one the flu doesn't continue to get worse and that it goes away quickly. Regardless, we are pretty pumped to deliver at the smaller of the INOVA hospitals, hoping that makes the process easier and more comfortable.
Okay, I have to sign off now. Baby girl is doing jumping jacks and it may be because I am slightly late in eating dinner...Taco Bell would be amazing right now...I wonder if they deliver...
