She is a dental hygienist so she always likes to give teeth gifts--which I think makes it even more special..and easy to remember who I got stuff from :) I wish I could some how get the feeling of the blanket to you guys---its like heaven!

Farmer's market

Stopped at the farmer's market today. They are much smaller here then they are in CO, and with a lot less options. But we got some nice fresh veggies.

New toy for troy and the car seat

Well with all this fluffy mail I have been getting I thought we best get something for Dad also....So today troy got his new toy. Its a new Calaway golf club--and yep he took it out for a spin already. :)We also decided to attempt to install the car seat. Not sure if we did it correctly because it just seems like there should be more to it then hooking the two LATCH system clips to the clips in the car. I have a voice mail out to the local car safety inspection people...we need to have it checked to make sure its in correctly. I think we will have to have them walk us though every type of instillation though since our rental cars change so much.

Harry potter and MORE fluffy mail :)

Tonight we caught the newest Harry Potter movie! It was pretty good overall...a little choppy here and there but overall I was happy with it.And I got me some more fluffy mail! Not diapers this time but diaper changing accessories! I got a changing pad, some diaper liners, two sets of baby legs (they are like leg warmers), an amber teething necklace and two wet bags. Wet bags you put your dirty diapers in. The little one goes in a diaper bag and the big one is a wet/dry bag---it has a compartment for clean/dry things and one for dirty/wet things and it can hang on a door knob.

Tub practice.

The midwife gave us our birthing tub at our last appointment and tonight we got an air pump and tested it out. This is pretty much the biggest portable birthing tub on the market-it has handles and a stool inside it and everything!!!!... Can't believe we are getting so close! And before you ask ---NO we are not leaving it there! LOL
