Fall Visitors

Kurt and Nero are discussing the visitors we recently had outside the apartment.

Kurt: "Hmmm.... roasted, fryed, broiled, baked, grilled, frikaseed..."

Nero: "let's ask Erica, what do you think?"

Kurt: "there are a lot of them, we could try lots of different ways of cooking them."

The Baby's Room

Here are some pictures of the baby's room. I covered the lamp shade with some fabric I had, isn't it cute?

Getting Ready

We have been getting the baby's room ready, I don't have any pictures to share yet because I just haven't taken any. :P I don't want the whole world to see my disaster area. I have some Curious George stick ups on the walls. We bought a cabinet to keep the diapers and other paraphernalia in. We have a stroller, 2 car seats, a changing table, a bed, some clothes, and a couple of bottles, oh yes, and 22 pacifiers. Think that's enough? Funny thing is that we haven't actually bought any pacifiers!

We are registered at both Target and Babies "R" Us. Both of which have online access to the registry, isn't that nice? I like it because I can get on and add things or change things without having to go to the store. After the couple of baby showers we'll figure out what we still need and then make mad dashes to the stores.

We have met with the birthmom a couple of times and we really like her. We are very comfortable with our relationship with her and look forward to getting to know her a whole lot better. I will be going to the ultrasound with her on Thursday Oct 19. I am really excited about that.

6 weeks and counting!!!

Pacifier Soup

We have been chosen to be the parents of a little girl who is due December 6th! We are floating up in the clouds. We chose the name Autumn Grace for her. We will get to bring her home from the hospital so we are getting a very new baby. We put up the bed this weekend. We are not going with the traditional crib but with a baby hammock. I researched it a lot before we decided but it should be a really good bed for her. If anyone wants to know more about it check out We are also collecting things from friends who have baby stuff sitting around. This weekend we went to Target and Babies "R" Us and started registeries. Know that they are not complete and I'm sure that any veteran parents out there will know exactly what we forgot to put on there when they look at it. We didn't put many mulitples of things on as we didn't know how many of things to add. We figured this would be more of a way to get started and ideas of things we want and need. So have fun with it. We only have 2 months to get everything ready and already we realize that we are going to be scrambling but it will be fun scrambling and we'll be smiling all the way.

Here is my pacifier soup. Doesn't it look yummy?
