It's odd to look in my rear view mirror and see this little baby seat! The fact that he is going to be here in less than a month is becoming more real each and every day!
A note to all mommy-to-be's (and there are plenty of you reading this!): Bring your car seat to your local police department. They will sit with you for an hour and review all of the aspects of your car seat, and even look up the rating of the seat you purchased!! Then, they will go out to your car and install it. Once you watch the install, you'll be able to do it blindfolded (please don't though!), and go home confident that your baby will be safe.
Very valuable bits of information I received:
1) Bring the car you are going to take baby home in for the install.
2) Typically, seats are installed in the MIDDLE of the back seat to keep baby safe. HOWEVER, have the police install the seat behind the passenger seat. Mommy will be very sore and achy, and will want more room in the back seat for the ride home. Once mom is situated in the house for a few days, immediately move the seat into the middle.
In the past month, I've seen the most generous side of my co-workers. My project team threw me a suprise shower after a meeting, and my core team threw me a suprise shower in lieu of me having to make a presentation (clever set-up)! I really am blessed to work with such amazing people, and can't wait to share the next chapter in my life with them.
Vince Neil, of Motley Crue, had it right with his song "Girls Girls Girls" ! Brady is certainly going to have plenty of girlfriends to hang out with - 8 to be exact! He'll also have three second cousins - all girls! With the exception of little Jack, I sure hope some of these little girls will enjoy playing in the dirt with G.I. Joes, and eating the occasional bug!!!
Well, Brady's shower was 3/26, and it was absolutely perfect!! A small gathering of family and friends was exactly what I wanted. Brady received so many wonderful gifts and so many beautiful outfits! He better grow up to be a Red Sox fan - he has a variety of sizes to get him thru the next two seasons!! (With Lee as his father, he won't have too much of a choice!) I already have two bins of clothing in my attic (6-9m, and a 12m+). The closet is full of NB-3m clothes, and also the 4 drawer dresser!! I have a feeling this little boy is going to be spoiled!!!
