The Time is Fast Approaching!!!!

I can't believe it! Only 9 more weeks and our little bundle of joy will be here! Which also means that only 9 more weeks and Christmas will be here! AHHH!!! Can't Christmas wait until Jan this year? That would make life so much easier. But I have a favor to ask all moms (and possibly dads) out there and anyone else that has info to share. Rick and I are trying to get together a list of "must haves" for the first 2-4 weeks after we bring Madi home from the hospital so we don't have to run to the store every few days. For example, diapers and wipes is pretty high on the list. But, since we haven't done this before we aren't getting very many things written down. Pretty much diapers and wipes are all we have and birp rags. So, if you care to share anything that would be helpful please email me at pinkprincess47@gmail.com. We are getting down to the wire and our baby shopping has yet to be done. And if you have any ideas on how to do things on a budget and that would help save us money that would be wonderful! Thanks in advance!

Never a Dull Moment

I am sure that all of you are a little nervous if not terrified of getting the swine flu. Which is completely understandable considering all the hype about it. And with me being pregnant and Rick working in Emergency Services we are equally as stress about contracting the virus as well. As with all things in our ever "exciting" life, even with all the hand washing and avoiding sick people as much as possible etc, etc, etc....this past week we contracted the dreaded H1N1 virus. All I can say is I am so glad that Rick's parents were here over the weekend to visit. Of course not realizing what they were getting into and us not know what was about to happen during their visit. But they were a huge blessing to us. I was the first to get it (thanks to a very generous and discussting co-worker who doesn't know the meaning of cleanliness) after which I promptly passed it to Rick and his mom before I even knew what was wrong. It wasn't until Monday at the doctor's appointment that I had already scheduled two weeks ago for the baby bumb check-up did we realize what I had was definately the swine flu. Thank goodness for modern medicine and Priesthood blessings is all I can say! We seriously felt like we were dying. I have never felt so crummy in my entire life from being sick. I hope that now we both have immunities to it and don't get it again. But, alas, that would go completely contrary to our luck so far. But at least this time we will know how to kick it in the bud if it does come knocking again.

Hopefully all of you can steer clear of it and stay healthy this winter. It's nasty stuff! Good luck!
