    Sending you my best secret for successful parenting:

    Make sure nurses have DAD perform diaper change in the hospital......worked like a charm and 21yrs later he still proudly states he changed first diaper.

    Also sending you my stock of onsies and car bottle warmer.....since electric swing was taken.

    HAVE FUN SNUGGLING.

    P.S.: I'm available for adoptive Grand Mom duties

    OoooOOOo! A baby shower

    *home cooked meals delivered to you for at least two weeks...from your loved ones.
    *a very comfy rocking chair for those middle of the night feedings
    *lots of long naps during the day
    *an e-mail reminder post-dated perfectly to arrive in your inbox shortly after baby's birth so you can come back and let us know how cute, big, and what the baby's name is!

    How exciting....soooo close!

    Two that I'm particularly fond of...

    The one where you melt different candy bars inside of clean Pampers, then pass them around the party and people have to guess what kind of candy bar it was by smelling it and identifying things like nuts and krispies...

    And then the one where you pass around jars of baby food, each person taking a spoonful, and writing down what flavor they think it is. I just love baby food, so that's probably why! I draw the line at the "meals" though, like with meat in them and stuff. I'm much more of a fruit and dessert baby food fan. During my first trimester when I was nauseous all the time, I did crave fruit but wanted something easy to eat and digest - so I ended up eating lots of jars of stage 3 fruits! YUM!

    Thank you for your kind words, they are much appreciated!

    Played a new game today at the shower my coworkers threw me: pin the sperm on the egg!

    Also, if you have not gotten a stoller yet, make sure you test run them around for a bit to see if the handles are too short. I am fairly tall and some of the lightweight umbrella strollers would give me a bac ached from hunching down. I just used my bigger carseat/stroller for everything. Also if you plan to do any flight travel, you can always gate check your stroller so that it is ready as soon as you step off of the plane, if you are flying on Southwest airlines you can preboard with kids up to age 5.
