With only 47 days until little Rebecca Rose arrives, Clark and I have some shopping to do! We want to buy a video camera to film every minute (ha!) of Rose's life. I don't know where to start looking for a good one and I don't know what features I should be looking for. If you have one, do you mind telling me what kind you have and if you like it?
Oh, and if you have any other baby must-haves, will you let me know about those as well?
Thanks so much!

I think they must be laughing at me at the W. I just called (yes, it is almost midnight) to see if they found my pillow and I had to talk to 2 different people before they figured out what I was talking about. They kept thinking I left a ring...do ring and pillow sound alike to you? Yea, I didn't think so either! Anyway, I finally had to spell out P-I-L-L-O-W and explain that it is a huge, weird shaped pillow for pregnant people. I felt kinda silly for calling but I just wanted to make sure I left it there and not somewhere else. Although, where else would it be? It's not worth waiting a few days for them to ship it to me, so I told them to keep it for some poor little pregnant lady who is in need of a good night's sleep.
This pillow has saved me from the insomnia that plagued me for the first 6 months of pregnancy! I don't know how something as simple as a pillow could be so awesome, but let me tell you, it is GREAT! It keeps me on my side all night long and I only wake up a few times a night now that I have it. If you are pregnant, go get one!!!!!! And don't wait until your 7th month either! I am heading to Babies-R-Us first thing in the morning to get Snoogle #2 and you can be sure I will be must more careful with this one :)

I need your help! Clark and I are debating whether or not to take childbirth classes at Springhill Medical Center and want to know what you think. Has anyone taken the classes there? Are childbirth classes helpful?? I really want us to know what all is going to happen once I go into labor, but we are so busy right now and the classes take up so much time! 3 hours a week for 4 weeks! I have heard mixed opinions about childbirth classes...some people LOVE them and others find them a waste of time. I am curious to see what my readers think :)
Thanks for your help,

Rose's pink glider came in this week! Clark and I love it so much. It is my new hangout. Whenever the phone rings, I find myself chatting away in the chair just looking out the window and thinking about how many hours Rose and I are going to spend in that chair. I can't wait.
Clark putting the base on the glider.
Pardon my PJ's...Mama in the glider!
The proud Papa in the glider. Pink is definitely Clark's color :)
Today, I met Mom and Janet (my sweet MIL) at Siegel's Baby Room where we ordered Rose's crib and dresser!!! Our order should be here in about a month.C
Once the crib comes in, we are going to have the bedding made with this fabric. It took me forever to find fabric that I loved, but I finally found it. I am in love with this little collection.
The solid pink fabric will be the bumper, the stripe will be the ruffle and ties on the bumper, and the flowery spiraly fabric will be the bed skirt and drapes on the window.
So, as you can see, we are working slowly but surely on the nursery and I can't wait to see it all come together. In the mean time, enjoy these pictures of the work in progress!
I just had to take a picture of the precious dress Janet bought for her granddaughter :) Matches her nursery perfectly!!
