Okay, so no pictures because I'm absolutely exhausted! We've been working on the nursery (thanks a million for your help, mom!) and David's been working on the yard. Our house is an absolute disaster. There just aren't enough hours in the day. This coming weekend I have class (my last one!!! FINALLY!) in Hattiesburg, then the next weekend is my sister-in-law's wedding shower at our house, then I might have another baby shower the next weekend (Easter weekend and my sister and nephew will be here). Then we're down to about 3 weeks! Yikes!

We had a baby shower yesterday given by my parents' church---the church family I grew up in. We were very blessed. Definitely no more clothing or blankets, though, please! We got our AL diaper bag from my mother-in-law, our elephant bouncer/rocker, and a tummy time playmat...along with a ton of other items. April 1 is my shower that some wonderful teacher friends have put together for us at the school. At the risk of sounding selfish, I do hope we receive lots of gift cards or the last items on our registry. We especially need linens (crib/bassinet sheets), bottles for me to store (I think only women besides my husband read this) milk in when I have to be away from Hayden, toys/teething items/etc., diapers (always), and a few other things. Selfishly, I still want the mobile for his crib, the lamp (if not the whole thing, then the shade that matches and I can buy a base), his initials for over the crib, covers for the Boppy, a Bumbo, and other decorative touches. I really am amazed at how things have come together thus far. I'll work on getting pictures soon!
