Busy, Busy, Busy

I'm ashamed that I didn't prepare to be a part of "What I Learned This Week", but we have been so busy. Hopefully, I'll participate next week.

We had a fun, family day today! We started out at the NC Museum of Natural History where the highlight was the escalator. After two hours there, we were off to the NC State (a.k.a. NC Steak) for lunch and people-watching at The Brickyard. The Muffin kept her eyes on lookout for Mr. Wuf, but he must have been busy with classes today. We walked over to the student bookstore and bought a few things (pom poms!!!) since today was the last day of a BIG sale. Muff was exhausted, but we went by the State Farmer's Market and walked around a little more. We were all tired when we arrived home six and a half hours after we'd left.
Today was a great day and everyone behaved! Thank You, Jesus!!

Big Daddy will be busy doing a few things the rest of the week, so Muff and I will do our usual: Storytime, grocery shopping and visiting with friends. We also need to get Big Daddy a little gift for his first day at the new job.

I'm hoping to finally receive my detergent order so that I can wash all of my (bumgenius) cloth diapers this week. I can't wait to use them! This will be a new adventure for us, so I'm excited even if it is about pee and poop! I'm also hoping to wash the first batch of baby clothes and get a bag ready for both Baby Ellie and me to take to the hospital. I realize that I'm a couple of months early, but I like to be prepared. I'm keeping in mind that The Lord sometimes likes to surprise us, so there will be gender-neutral clothing in the baby bag. I'm hoping that he sex is confirmed at he 36 week ultrasound, but I'm going to be ready just in case. And it's because of surprises, that I'm packing our bags. In case something happens and Baby E doesn't bake for the full 40 weeks, I want the bags to be packed the "right" way.

What do you suggest hat I pack in my hospital bag??

What a fun day!

As for hospital bag- all I pack are clothes (for me and baby) and toiletries (including brush and lipgloss). I never touched my bags when giving birth. I plan to pack one little duffle bag with room for the extras that the hospital usually gives out.

Don't forget your camera, camera batteries, cash for cafeteria, list of people to call (usually in cell phone anyway), and your own pillow!
