December?!

Baby is due one month from tomorrow! It's hard to believe time has gone so quickly. We are anxious to meet the little one, and we look forward to his or her arrival more and more as the days pass. I have definitely been nesting. Example: I decided a few days ago to attempt to make my own baby wipes. If we're going to go with cloth diapers, it only makes sense to use cloth wipes too, right? So I cut up an old fleece blanket into 8x8 squares and am sewing around the edges to give a little character and keep the wipes from fraying. I'm not sure how well fleece will do as wipes. I've read that flannel is best, but fleece is what I had available. I've tested them out as face wipes and they work as that! :)

We had a great Thanksgiving. Tim and I enjoyed a meal at the house and just relaxed all day...actually, all weekend! It was nice.

We are in the middle of decorating for Christmas. :) I put up the nativity scenes last night, and we need to do the tree at some point today.

Tim started a blog of his own yesterday. Check it out - there is also a link to it to the right under "Blogs I Follow".

We don't really have much going on here until the weekend. The church is hosting a baby shower for us on Saturday afternoon. Then Saturday evening, we are having a few people from church over for dinner. It will be a "thank you" dinner for the worship team that leads music once a month at the church. Tim is going to grill chicken for that dinner. Mmmmm!

I thought the whole idea of disposible wipes was to not deal with "poopy"-sounds interesting though. This month will seem like it lasts a life time. All those frequent trips to the bathroom at night are to prepare you for baby!!!
