I've been busy building my nest....or cleaning it rather. With about 2 weeks to go until my due date, I'm just waiting curiously to meet the little man. Knowing that it could be "any day now" I feel as though I can't get the house clean enough. Moli and Alex have no clue what is coming there way! Moli has found that she loves napping on the changing table. Alex, impressively, has not touched any of the stuffed toys sitting around the nursery. Our fingers are crossed he's already learning what toys are the baby's and not his! I'm sure Alex and baby boy will be best friends before long!

What do you do on a rainy Sunday when your husband is out of the house? Of course you go shopping for baby shoes! Yes, the baby that has yet to be born. I wondered into the kids shoe section at Dillard's to find baby Sperry's, baby Keds, and adorable Stride Right tennis shoes. I have always loved Keds since I was a little girl and have always said I'd put them on my kids. So I decided on a pair of teeny Keds and headed to check out. I casually mentioned to the sales lady that I really had no idea what size to get and she gave me the "worried face." Then a customer who was buying shoes for her children sat up and said, "you are buying shoes for your baby? When are you even due?" I said I'd like to just buy a pair of shoes for when he might start showing interest in walking for stepping. She basically told me I was crazy for wanting to buy shoes for a baby with laces and also one that wasn't even here. Apparently, you MUST have you baby "measured" for shoes at Stride Right. I said I didn't think I'd put shoes on him until he started creeping around. The customer then corrected me with a worried tone, "you will put shoes on him in the winter, right?" I said yes, and told her that I had the Robeez section covered for then, but I wanted "shoes" for when he started creeping or making strides at taking steps. Just when I thought I was somewhat on track for preparing for baby, someone will kindly remind you that first time moms really have no idea of what they are doing. I just wanted a pair of Keds for the baby! However, on this rainy Sunday, that was bigger battle than I had anticipated or was up for. I left without buying any shoes!
