Our laptop is having serious problems so writing and posting pictures is proving challenging. The home computer is just not convenient and does not lend itself to multi-tasking...
I'm not even doing a menu plan for this week... Whatever we eat will be simple, focused on fresh ingredients (peppers and tomatoes are prolific right now), and quick to make.
Today I ran around to get medical papers filled out and signed by the doctor and to turn in paperwork and write checks to our adoption agency. I also bought a carseat and stroller - Graco Metrolite. I hope we like it! I came home to find out that I won a brand-new baby-wearing sling/carrier from all the giveaways last week! I am so thankful and it looks similar to one of the ones I was considering - I will try wearing it and make sure it will work but it looks great. I love seeing how God provides!
Patrick had a wonderful party yesterday (grandparents, aunts, & uncles). He was so delighted to have everyone and felt very self-important. :) Pictures to follow - there were some really great ones! I made a cake for him - I didn't have much time but he was pleased with the result. :) He chose a strawberry cake and he even helped to make one of the layers - it was a highlight for him and for me. His favorite gifts were from Uncle Luke & Aunt Liz - a semi with a car that drives into the back and from Uncle Elliot- Mack truck with three cars. He literally screamed and jumped up and down when he opened the latter which is a ton of emotion for my shy boy. :)
Tonight we will focus on getting the house tidied up, clothes folded, and bags ready to go for the "in-labor" call. I'm tired today, but it was a great weekend! Oh and we do have a name...we are 95% sure but you'll have to stay tune for the blog birth announcement. :) Hope your week is off to a good start!
