The end of lazy days

I haven't been up to much lately. Yesterday before 9 a.m. I had run the dishwasher, vacuumed the house and cleaned the kitchen. When my friend with a 7 month old called and I told her this, she felt like such a slacker and then it dawned on me -- this won't probably happen again until my kids are old enough to be more dependent.

This morning, we woke up at 8 a.m. (that's late for us). Usually the dog wakes me up at 6 a.m. to eat but this morning he decided to be kind and let us sleep in. As we watched a Bob Dylan documentary in bed we joked "better savor this moment - probably will be a long time until this happens again."

Yesterday we picked up the mattress for the crib. A lady in the baby section approached me for help. She was looking for a co-sleeper for her daughter but she didn't know what it was called or what it looked like. She said "you look like someone that knows baby stuff." I do know baby stuff and it was nice be looked at as an expert on these things.

It's amazing to think I'm 3/4 of the way to having this baby. I almost can't wait to hold him in my arms and see what he looks like.

I'm off to have a lazy Sunday. We'd take the dog for a walk byt it's snowing!

And enjoy the evenings out with friends while you can. It's amazing how everything comes to a screeching halt for a few years. I have to say, you are one beautiful pregnant woman, Shannon - it totally agrees with you!

Lazy Sundays.

Tell you what...

I've got at least 3 cupcake recipes that I've "saved as new" on your Google feed reader --

we'll make one of them while you're here. Banana Split cupcakes or Tiramisu? Both sound decadent.

Enjoy all of your downtime and sleep while you can!! Go on dates, read books and hang out with your friends. Things will be getting a bit crazy for you once the baby gets here.

That's lovely. Your expert-ness shows on the outside, cool!

I'm glad you're having some lazy days. It's nice, pregnant or no.
