Posh Baby...

So I've been wanting to buy Fifi a fabulous baby blanket... I'm not qualified to actually knit her one so I decided the second best thing would be to get her the best money could buy. Haha. My quest involved all sorts of high-end baby stores, not to mention Nordstrom, etc. I couldn't find anything that I loved !
So anyway, today I was at TJ Maxx and just happened to notice something fluffy tucked in behind a bunch of (generally crummy) things... Of course I immediately dropped everything and start digging for it (because the best things are always a lot of work at those stores)... and what do you know, out comes a GORGEOUS Petunia Picklebottom blanket.
Seriously? You have to be kidding me, I'm thinking.

I honestly looked around to see if I was on some kind of hidden camera show.

At this point, I didn't really care what it cost... but when I looked at the tag, well let's just say I got it for well over 70% off...!! I don't know why today was my lucky day, maybe the pregnancy gods have taken pity on me and the fact that I may be pregnant FOREVER. Anyway, isn't it cute?? I've never felt ANYTHING so soft.

In other news, despite what our ticker at the top says, we're only 8 days away from our due date. I didn't realize we were that close until someone asked me how much longer I had and I said a week. I went to correct myself (maybe I'm in denial, but I thought we had 2 more weeks)...Either way, my doctor said he won't let me go more than 10 days past due so she's comin' out before the 12th.

So... we're still here... No braxton hicks, no contractions, no nothing. Luckily I am not miserable yet. Don't get me wrong, I'm uncomfortable a good chunk of the day, but rarely am I miserable, despite the fact that nighttime sleep has become a thing of the past - but I'm great at sleeping during the day!

By the way, I'm sorry I'm an awful phone call returner. Just putting it out there. I am sorry if I fail to call you back in a timely fashion. It doesn't mean we're in the hospital in labor. I'm much better at email. Don't know why. Just how it is.

Let me just say that I set the bar high ... you will also need to POST when you go into labor so that we know it is happening. Just do it in between contractions. Seriously, if I can do it, you can do it.
