Just a quick update on Baby K. Quick because there’s not much to say. Our doctor said yesterday everything is normal: my weight, her growth, her heartbeat, even my list of silly little questions every visit. Totally normal. In fact, he said we are so normal, it’s exciting. Wow! When was the last time someone said, You’re so normal—I’m so excited for you!
We also met with our pediatrician yesterday, and we really like him. Both he and the practice have come highly recommended. It’s hard to gauge how well your pediatrician’s philosophy of care matches yours when you’ve never done anything like this before, but he made us feel very confident and at ease all at the same time. He’s also excited that we’re so normal.
Things are also coming together with Baby Stuff. On their way are the crib, dresser/changing table, glider, stroller and infant seat. It’s crazy. We’ve spent all this money, ordered all this stuff, and right now all we have for the nursery is a bunch of receipts. Maybe I should lay them down on the floor where everything is supposed to go. My friend Amber also delivered at St. Elizabeth’s and she’s been very helpful with what we should and shouldn’t purchase. Apparently, you come home with a ton of stuff. She helped me make a list of what is not included so we don’t buy duplicate things.
And lastly, we’re signed up for classes. This week we start Infant Care/CPR and next week we start Childbirth Preparedness. Who are we? We sound like really organized expectant parents. Honestly, I don’t feel very organized. I just feel like I need a nap.
