Sunday was my baby shower, and it’s taken me until today to recover! Amazing how tiring opening gifts and eating yummy snacks and appetizers can be :) It was a great party, my sister and mom did an awesome job and everything was fantastic (after the morning drama with the ice storm / church closure / should we cancel the shower? moments) We got SO. MUCH. STUFF! Our house is nearly transformed into a ‘baby house’. When we got home Sunday night and unpacked the car and filled our dining room with our new fun stuff, Dan got all excited and on a whim decided to put together the swing. So that’s our latest fixture in the living room.
We got the crib put together on Saturday, and yesterday I spent a few hours trying to get organized, removing tags from her new clothes and getting them ready to wash. All I can say is, I really hope she doesn’t come out a boy instead! heehee
I still have some things to finish up in the room before I’ll be taking pictures. First, we have to unpack some more things and figure out where to put everything, and then I have to stencil the border and do some little finishing touches… but stay tuned!
Thankfully I had all of this baby stuff yesterday to distract me from the phone call that had me in tears. It was our accountant, tell me that I owe $4800 in Federal taxes this year. Yes, I said $4800. That’s in addition to the $4000 I paid as an estimate for my business as the year progressed. Apparently, my estimations need some adjusting. Excuse me while I go and hyperventilate. And mourn the depletion of our savings just weeks before we have a baby and I stop working for a few months. Oh The Timing!
But it doesn’t matter. WE’RE HAVING A BABY!
