The Galles have been very busy since the last update! We made it to Babies r Us to register for baby stuff, which is a lot different than registering for a wedding. Not knowing what half of the stuff in that store is used for, we muddled through and registered for what we think we're going to need! We'll soon see how we did...3 months to go! Of course, Chris' favorite part was using the scanner...so it's always fun to look back at what ended up on the registry!
The next weekend, we went to St. Joe's for our childbirth class (or, as Chris calls it, baby-hatching class!)...another new, eye-opening experience! The instructor was hilarious and didn't sugarcoat anything....she even imitated Bill Cosby's lamaze impression! So we watched childbirth videos (I'm definitely getting the epidural), practiced breathing, and practiced getting into different birth positions! Who knew there are so many ways to go about getting this baby out of me? Overall, I feel much more comfortable with what God expects my body to do in August!
In between childbirth class and registering for baby gear, we managed to get our crib and changing table put together with minimal stress (thank goodness for husbands who can interpret bad drawings and poor assembly instructions). The crib bedding was ordered this week and should be in soon, so when it's all put together, I'll post pictures and include one of me (that's for you, Amos).
Then there was Mother's Day and my birthday. Even though I'm not technically a mother yet, I've been a mother in my heart since I found out about Kate. So, I got birthday presents and a few Mother's Day presents (which were really for Kate). Thanks to Aunt GG and Aunt Cookie, we now have a pink onesie with a built-in tutu and matching shoe-sock ballerina slippers! We also have bunny slippers and a stuffed bunny to match. And I absolutely adore them (the clothes and my sisters-in-law!)!
In other news, there are only 2 1/2 weeks of school left and I can't wait for it to be over. It's been a great school year, but I'm ready to be home and finish getting everything ready for Kate's arrival. I feel very fortunate to have a job that allows me to be off of my feet and in the A/C for the last 3 months of my pregnancy. Leave it to yours truly to have 2 of the most important days in a woman's life (wedding and baby) during the 2 hottest months of the year!
That's about it for now...
We hope that this post finds all of you doing well and we hope to see all of you soon!
