happy weekend!

You guys!  This week got away from me.  It was an amazing one, but one that left me with exactly zero time for blogging.  Boo!  Next week, I’ll be back on track.

What do y’all have planned this weekend?  I am super excited about ours — Chad’s brother, his wife, and their two-year-old son are coming to Houston for a visit!  Bear met his cousin Evan at Christmas, but he’s so much bigger and more aware of everything now, and I’m super excited for them to actually get to play together!  We got them on FaceTime a few weeks ago and Evan kept saying “Hi Baby Bear!”  It was SO cute!

Every time I see older kids now, I get so excited to watch Bear grow up and to see all the new things he’ll learn.  I can’t wait until he’s old enough to talk!  Right now, he says Mama and Dada and not much else, but I know they start advancing in leaps and bounds the second year.  I can’t wait!

Also, this weekend, I’m going to get on the ball about planning Bear’s first birthday party!  It’s only a few weeks away (eek!) and I’ve done exactly nothing so far.  (Double eek!) That’s not totally true — we ordered our invitations and thought a lot about the theme, but there are a lot of details that need to come together in the next few weeks, and I have to get on the ball!  It’s going to be a ton of fun. 

And thank you all so much for the vacation ideas!  I want to go everywhere.  One of my favorite things about living in Houston is how many easy beach destinations are just a few hours away — I can’t wait to explore more of them!

My heart exploded this morning.  I don’t think I’ve ever felt more happy and grateful than I do at this moment.

Welcome to the world, baby Bear.  We love you with our whole hearts already.

My pre-baby To Do List is getting dangerously short.

The nursery will be finished today.  (!!!)

The baby monitor is in place, his clothes are hung, and everything is put away. 

My thank you notes are written, our taxes are filed, and every major purchase has been completed.

Our freezer is stocked with double batches of easy recipes, so Chad does not starve when I stop cooking for two or three weeks. 

(There will also be lots of take-out involved.)

My hospital bag is packed, at least to the extent that it can be, given that I will inevitably need my camera and makeup and cell phone charger between now and April.

And yesterday, after work, I managed to have time to pick up a bunch of fresh flowers and paint my nails.  (The pink shade is OPI from a fashion week gift bag, and the sparkly shade is Butter London ‘Anorak.’)

I am almost (almost) ready for this baby to arrive.
