Brand Spankin' Used

I have bought some things in a second hand store for the first time. I never thought it would happen because I've always considered everything there to be junk. But a friend at work who absolutely loves these stores made me come with her on Friday when everything was 50% off. The things I got look like they never been used! For $9.96 I brought home following items:

120 days to go

Today I held a 6 month old baby girl. So cute and so little. It felt unreal that we soon are going to have one of our own. I am longing to meet him.

Simmma, simma i en simbassäng!

I am happy I didn't have to go to work today because it was a day meant to spent outside in the nice spring weather. I went to the pool and swam for half an hour. It was really nice and I was doing great until it was time to get out of the water. Next time I won't even try to jump up from the water to the poolside! I will use the ladder just as all the other 70-year olds (and pregnant women). It was embarrising trying to push myself (and my belly) up over the edge, kicking and struggling looking like a frog. Definitely not used to this new body of mine!

Have someone seen my baby?

I have always been very forgetful. I lose things all the time, can't remember where I put stuff and always feel like it's something I have forgotten to do (and in most cases I also have).

I lock my keys in the car, I forget to take the money out of the ATM, and always have to have someone call my cellphone to find out where it's at.

Yesterday I had one of those days when I just couldn't get my shit together. Then Max said I am going to be the same way with the baby, forget it at the store or in the park. That I would have to tie a string to my wrist and attach it to the stroller. So I wouldn't forget. I thought it was very funny the way he said it. "Oops, I forgot the baby at Walmart"

Thank you mom!

After talking to my mom on Skype I can definitely say that the baby do not need any more clothes for the first 3 to 4 months. OMG! There are so many adorable clothes for babies. She had gotten him a superman jogging dress, another jogging dress that is white with frogs on, a long sleeved t-shirt with matching sweatpants, and these adorable pants.

Our boy is going to be the cutest dressed baby in Steamboat!

Doing some more shopping

Today I couldn't resist buying some clothes for our little boy. I have been browsing many online stores for baby clothes and considering how much other baby stuff we need to buy I do not want to spend too much money on clothes he is only going to wear for a couple of months. Neither do I want to have too many clothes but just the right amount to be able to keep up on laundry.

I found a great site with good priced baby clothes and I got all this for a total of $51.93. On the downside most clothes are either blue or pink. It would have been great with some more options. But still very cute! This is what I got.

Today it is week 21+0. I have gained 4 kg and don't feel that much pregnant yet although I am down to two pair of leggings as the only pants I am able to wear. My doctor said it's time to stop skiing and snowmobiling so instead we have bought a one year membership to the Health & Rec Center. Starting May first I am planning on going swimming a few times a week. I figured it was a good idea to get a pass considering the work I have ahead of me post delivery :)

Yesterday I got three packages delivered to our mailbox. Three from my very kind mom and one baby down comforter that I had ordered. I will try to get some things every week to try to spread out the cost of everything that we need to get before our little boy gets here. Now I am going to go water my beautiful flowers which are still alive and blooming. Happy Thursday!

Grown up

I have earned some grown up points by purchasing my first two plants for the house. One Orchid and one Sunrise Cactus. I will be very sad if they die on me!

Our day in pictures

Went up on Buff Pass and did some backcountry. Max snowboarded and I was acting chauffeur. Right now we have the easter lamb roasting in the oven meanwhile nibbling on some truffle cheese and olive bread. Could be worse...

Happy Easter!

Thank you John & Carol for the Easter card. It went to an Orchid Vanilla Easter Bunny and Truffle Cheese. Yum!

Today I am 20 weeks pregnant which means there are 20 more to go. So far so good and I can't wait until Tuesday when I have my second and last ultrasound. I hope the baby is going to cooperate so that we can see if it is a boy or a girl. But more important I hope the baby is healthy! I am so curious to see how he or she is going to look like.

Today we woke up to about three inches of wet, icky, heavy slush so I decided to grab Rimini and go in with Max. April fools weather!
