New Plans For The Nursery

After careful consideration and discussion, we have decided to do Alyssa's nursery in a pastel pink, green and yellow theme. I am researching bedding and blankets right now, and preparing to buy paint. If you find something in these colors let me know, I will consider it. Here are some of my finds. Tadpoles Pink Toile 4 Piece Infant Bedding Set - Sleeping Partners - Babies "R" Us

MiGi "Sweet" 4-Piece Crib Bedding Set - MiGi - Babies "R" Us

Vintage Floral 3 Piece Crib Bedding Set - My Baby Sam - Babies "R" Us

Hope you like what you see, can't wait to show paint chips at the long awaited Jamboree '08.

It is so weird to me that you can grow up with someone your entire life and still not really know them. I have read both my brother and sister's stories on their blogs and find that there are so many things they have experienced that I knew nothing about. It is strange to think of Andrew as a grown man, with so much life experience. I just think of him as a little boy squeezing the glow worm so hard and still not getting any glow! And to think of my sister with indecision and questions of what life will bring doesn't fit. What a great mother she is! I just wish they lived closer so we could share our adult lives as much as we shared our childhood.

Happy Birthday Adam!

After our short trip to NC we had enough time to recover and it was down to NM to visit with Jason's side of the family and celebrate Adam's birthday.
It has been fun to see Cody play with his cousin Cole and open up to Grammy and Papa. Since we don't see them much it took a couple days to feel at home. Baby Cade is doing great and is one of the chubbiest babies I have seen in a while. It makes me so excited for baby Alyssa to come into the world, but sort of nervous too, it will be a lot of work to take care of two little ones.
There were some early festivities for the Easter holiday, so we went to town for the easter egg hunt and face painting...Cody thought the basket looked better as a hat!

The rehearsal

Well, it was an interesting trip to the "New South"...Cody and I spent 4 days in NC with cousin Noah, Aunt Lele, Uncle Andy and Mimi. While somewhat exhausting, it was very much fun. We visited some of the attractions, most of them geared toward our little ones.

My favorite was the discovery zone...Here are a few pictures to show you how much fun we had. I learned something about myself, I need to let go a little more and let Cody discover on his own. He loves to play with other children, and he will check in when he needs me. He was so cute playing in the water, climbing on the ropes and even going down the slide. He is just growing up too fast!
I can tell that I am pregnant though, because I felt like crying every night because I missed my Hubby! The emotions ran high, but I reminded everyone to remain calm and remember that there were 2 pregnant women here!!! Mimi got Alyssa a darling white top and Aunt Lele got her a pair of ballet slippers that I am sure will get lots of use when the little girl finally arrives. I feel like it was a good rehearsal for the upcoming jamboree. Hopefully we got all the tears out and we can have a tear free jamboree in CO in April. See you all soon.
