Tick Tock, Baby

I'd like to say that I haven't posted in nearly a month because I've been busy. But the truth is, I've just been offline. It's really pathetic when you're so worn out that facing the Internet feels like too much work--never mind actually writing something.

But while I was feeling run-down, not writing, not keeping up with my blog-reading and generally trudging through the daily routine for a while...time passed. And suddenly my due date is 36 days away. And we're going to move out of our house and into an apartment at some not-yet-determined date. And our baby gear amounts to two knit hats, a couple of mismatched outfits, and the plush sheep rattle that we bought a year ago when Rob decided it was too awesome to pass up.

Oh yeah. We're so ready.

Welcome back! Life sure can get in the way of blogging.

And relax (I know, easier said than done), but all you need for a young baby is diapers, a few one-piece outfits, and a car seat. Seriously. Most of the stuff they sell is meant purely to extract money from your pockets. You'll figure out what you need/want as the baby gets older.

car seat, a couple of blankets that double as burp clothes and gas drops. It's really all you need to get started. And if I could only have ONE of those i'd take the gas drops- trust me
