Baby Announcements

So, I figured I'd better get my booty in gear and make the baby boys birth announcements... well, the fronts of them anyways. I will print the info in blank cards when he arrives and then attach the fronts. I feel good about having at least this in order. A big thanks to Kristy for the "boy tape" it went perfectly here.
Yesterday, I finally made it to take the hospital tour. It's been over three years since I had Aaron and I really did need a refresher, plus, the hospital has been through some remodeling. I'm glad I went because I feel more confident about having me time with my baby right after he's born. She said that they should give us a good HOUR of bonding time before they even weigh him or do any of that other poking and proding. I was suprised by that, but happy because that's what I really wanted. I always thought they HAD to do all that stuff right away, but that's really not the case. I'm getting excited and scared...it hit me like a ton of bricks when I saw those little bundles in the nursery...I'm going to have one of those in a couple of weeks!!!! SHOCK, cry, gulp. The world stood still for a moment. AND although it's pretty late in the game I just might hire myself a doula...I've been debating it for a while...but the lady who gave the tour yesterday is a doula and she was amazing. Travis is a great help, but for my last child it would be nice to have the expert help of a doula...make the birth that much better.
Travis volunteered at the Bishop's storehouse yesterday and also picked us up some more quick oats and regular oats. I was looking at this index card of how many pounds of grains you need per person per year for your food storage and HOLY SMACKEREL-400lbs. Between the five of us, well you do the math. Where do I put it all? Right now I have the leaning tower of food storage boxes in my dining room next to my china cabinet...looks so stylish. UGH!
I hope you all have a wonderful Sabbath day and take care.
