19 months down, 1 more to go

Sometimes it feels like I've been preg forever, but other times I can't believe it's gone by so fast. I know this last month will fly, only because I feel totally unprepared in every way. All well....when do you ever feel ready for a baby? I just can't wait to hold that sweet girl in my arms for the first time, and experience that un-explainable feeling of love and joy you have when you have a baby.

On the other hand, I feel clueless in the girl section at any store. I don't know what to buy.....dresses, skirts, cardigans, shoes? There are too many cute options. Shopping for Cooper was beyond easy. One or two pairs of shorts and some t-shirts and he's set. On saturday, I stood at old navy for well over an hour just staring at everything, chewing on my lip, not knowing what to buy. No worries, I'm sure it will become easier ;)

Well it appears we officially have a "big boy" in the house. We got Cooper moved into a bed so that "she" can take over his crib. He thinks it's the say the least. Take a look at the first night we set it up. And please forgive the bad photos. They were taken with my point and shoot, and Cooper insisted on taking the photos with the lights off, so most of the pictures are way off.

He jumped for appr. 45 minutes on his bed while singing "ring around the rosies" It was hilarious. And good news, he's been sleeping great since he moved in! He adapted like a champ. Phew...

We've been enjoying our last days of summer...I'm sad it's almost over. We've been taking advantage of the pool as much as possible. Although, I have learned that pregnancy and sunlight aren't a good combo. I'm just trying to enjoy my time with Cooper before our lives completely change in a month. I hope his mellow little personality sticks around after the baby comes...that would sure help me out. I know things are bound to change though...lets' just hope I can stay sane!
