On Saturday Dave and I took care of so much work. We cleaned the house, washed the final baby stuff, took things out of packages, plugged things in and finished setting up our house for this baby. We also had dinner at Tapas, a great, though unfortunately very baby-unfriendly restaurant. The place is loud, crowded and just not where you can bring a baby in a carrier and sit it on a chair. We enjoy this place a lot but it won't be a place we go out on our 'date nights' when we have a baby sitter. It's not that kind of place. I suspect we'll order take out from it though!
My sorry attempts to stalk to police officer to inspect our car seats have ended. I give up. I'm so utterly disappointed (yes, some tears were shed) but we did find that a store called USA Baby will inspect them for $15 each (free if you bought the car seat there). So we have an appointment Tuesday to get that done. THEN we're ready to have this kid.
I'm feeling really well. My hand is still bothering me (very swollen, achy and stiff) but other than that I feel fine. Next doctors appointment is tomorrow.

A footed outfit, a non-footed outfit, some socks, a sweater and 4, yes four, hats. We've got the 'It's a boy' and 'It's a girl' hat. Also the Notre Dame hat and a knit/winter hat that matches the sweater. The car seat carrier has a little sack, like a sleeping bag, that buckles into it so we don't need to have a coat to bring it home in.
In my opinion there is only one more thing for us to do- have the carseat checked by an inspector. I'm pretty sure mine is in right, but not sure about Dave's.

So in typical fashion, after we got our taxes done we swung by Best Buy for a new computer (last year it was a new camera after taxes). We walk in, tell the computer guy we want to buy a computer and 20 minutes later we have this lightening fast, shiny new computer.
I suspect computers are like sneakers. And many other things. You don't realize how bad/old yours was until you get a new one and it works amazingly better. The photos on this computer are amazing! The screen is so sharp. It's SO Fast and it doesn't sound like a helicopter setting up for lift off. Nope, it makes normal computer sounds.
Yay us! Yay for fun new stuff!

While this sounds like a silly thing, it's actually kind of complicated to figure out how many weeks pregnant you are. You count everything based on the week you are starting, but really you aren't that pregnant. Not until you finish that week are you 'that' many weeks pregnant. So when you read the books you read things like, 'in week 30 your baby will grow to the size of a pot roast' but really it won't be a pot roast until 7 days from when you are reading that page.
The doctor has quizzed me on this and have been impressed that I have the right answer. It took Dave weeks of calm explaining but I finally got it figured out. It's not that I miscounted when I wrote that in my past blog, its just that I was lazy and not really thinking about it.
Ah well. My apologies. Due date is March 5, 3 weeks from tomorrow. YIKES!
