They Must Be Excited To Be Grandparents

I need to send a thousand thank you notes to my parents. Since we were running out of time, they have driven the long trek to our house twice in the past week to help with Babybird’s room. They have helped move furniture, rip up old carpet, clean, paint…..and basically anything that we needed to have done. Dad put down hardwood flooring with Birddog's supervision while Mom and I rearranged a few things in the kitchen. We even got the crib put together on Saturday.

I simply cannot say ‘thank you’ enough. I am not sure what we would have done without them. Birddog still isn’t supposed to lift heavy things from his back surgery and I am in such a ‘delicate state’ that the grocery store bagger won’t let me carry my gallon of milk to the car. Everyone acts like I am going to break if I lift a finger. The only thing left to be done in the baby's room now is to paint the baseboards. This is a huge relief because my Kentucky baby shower is this weekend.

The ladies at my parent’s church are having a brunch for me on Saturday. How cool is that? I have never been to a baby shower brunch. I think that they are going to have coffee cake, fruit, muffins, quiche and all that yummy brunch-y food! I am looking forward to the food as much as the shower!

I am also super excited to see some people that I haven’t seen in a while. ShortyMom is coming and I haven’t seen her in a LONG time….I am so glad that we got back in contact through blogging. My friend Laura is going to make an appearance and we haven’t seen each other since she moved home from Nashville. I also can't wait to see all the family members that I haven't seen in a while.......and I am sure they can't wait to see me with a baby-bump.

I am sorry that I haven’t blogged in a while. I have been on a mad dash to get the room ready before this weekend's shower. I hope to have some baby shower pictures up after this weekend!
