Dominic's mom is buying lotsa stuff...

Okay, so I've bought a lot of stuff for Dominic this week.

But, hey, who blames me?

A local school district was selling discarded books from their library... for a quarter each (some were a dime each) and then on the last day they were $2 a bag. I, um, spent $20 on books. Gotta get his library started, and who can beat the price? They were nice books :)

Problem is, I don't have any bookshelves for him yet!

I also found some great stuff at my favorite cheapstuff store: Gabriel Brothers when I went shopping with Carrie & Co. the other night. (Bill kicked all of his women out of the house so he could do yardwork and take a nap!)

Lots of socks and onesies, plus my two favorite buys: a tiny little blue polo shirt and this little striped cap that reads "Mr. Sherriff" on a star. Mike was working very late Friday night, so I went to bed before he got home, but I set the two pieces on his desk. He said that when he saw them... it really sank in--we're having a kid and soon he'll be wearing those tiny little clothes! :)

Today, our church services were outside at a lake. Our small congregation has folks of all ages, but in the past five years or so, there's been an absolute explosion of little boys. And there's only one little girl! So there were quite a few folks rooting for us to have a girl--especially the pastor's wife and the mother of the lone little girl. However, this was not to be.

And it did make me a little nervous today when two of older-little boys (Rachel - one of them was your youngest brother!) emerged from the trees covered from head to toe in thick, dark mud... trying to hug their moms! My friends just laughed--see what you have to look forward to? they all said.

Scary!

Oh, and after today's little outing--despite me sitting in the shade pretty much the whole time--I am a tomato. Yup, bright red nose & arms. When will I ever learn to wear sunscreen?

It's so much fun shopping for baby stuff, isn't it? The problem is, once you start it's really hard to stop!

PS - you can never have too many children's books! Especially since most of the little ones that I know seem to like chewing on them before they can even read them. =)

Okay. I think I have it figured out ,Amber.(that is, how to send a message to you). Books are good. You can start reading to him now. And play some classical music. That is supposed to do something for their developement. I loved buying baby stuff. Don't get anything small. By the looks of that ultrasound picture he is not going to be a little guy.
