It’s a boy! :)

July 22, 2010

It may seem a bit odd, but the hubby and I have had the two books above for about a year already (must have been fate, since we are only 20 weeks in, and we had no idea how soon we would need them).  We found them while shopping for a friend’s baby shower.  She was going to have a boy and when we picked up the baby boy book, I really felt like I wanted to get the set for our future kids.  Last Wednesday, we finally put them to use 🙂  We brought both books with us to the hospital for our ultrasound appointment.  I have never seen Y (I have just decided to refer to him as Y from this point on, since our posts are becoming more frequent, due to the baby) so ecstatic when we were told it was going to be a boy.  See the picture he edited below (and posted on his facebook account, no less).

It really is quite amusing to see the difference inY since we found out about our bundle of joy.  His usual policy of not making status updates on facebook/twitter, etc, is put aside for proclamations about his upcoming “buddy.”  Also, his aversion to shopping is now apparently gone, as he has arrived home a couple of times bearing gifts, like the matching baby mat and sleeper below in the photo below.  Aren’t they cute? 🙂


Here’s what works for me when I get stressed at the office:

1) A 10-minute Facebook break, going through my loved ones profiles (I especially love seeing old pictures of me when I was a kid looking so very happy with my parents)

2) Looking at gorgeous, gorgeous jewelry from my favorite designers/brands, Cathy Waterman, Gurhan, Yossi Harari, Temple St. Clair and Chanel.

3) And if you are like us, instead of just working on a necessary, my husband and I are actually applying finishing touches to our entire apartment.   I am finding shopping for things like wall sconces and door knobs really relaxing.  Here’s a door knob I really like from Emtek.

4) And if all else fails, I get myself a treat like a cupcake from the place beside our building 🙂
