We've Got Mail!

Now see...y'all made me blush! I think pregnant ladies get more compliments than anyone else on this earth. So...thanks!

In other news, we received a wonderful package this week from Wonder Daddy's mother. Ernie loves it- she keeps pointing and saying "a baby a amal!" ("Those are the baby's animal blankets." Come on, where's your gift of translation to match her gift of tongues!) At any rate, the Fantastic MIL found an adorable animal print, and then proceeded to make something out of every piece of fabric in the store that matched the set! There are flannel burp cloths and a blanket, a quilted-panel crib blanket, and a crazy-soft fleece blanket, along with jersey sheets. Of course, she picked the animal print because it's gender neutral...and then backed everything in pink. Her thinking? "It's easy to switch out the pink pieces for blue!" Only for you, Fantastic MIL :) It's all amazingly adorable.

Then, to top it off, I got a link to this picture today.

Can you see what that is?! Wonder Daddy's sister, the amazing Aunt B, sketched these from the animals on the fabric. And painted them. And I am in absolute awe.

I can't wait to get the nursery all put together. Yes, we're kind on borrowed time seeing how I'm almost a week overdue. All the painting is done, we just need to put put up the chair rail and molding, vacuum, and move the crib and furniture back in. But it's OK, because this baby is NEVER GOING TO COME. I'm fairly certain of that fact now :)
