Preparing for the Chunky Monkey’s Visit!

I’ve been a wee bit distracted lately. I’m preparing for my grandson a.k.a. Chunky Monkey, daughter, and favorite son-in-law (don’t tell him, but he’s my only son-in-law) upcoming visit!

The kids are flying in this weekend so I need to get a few things to prepare to have a baby in the house. I had my daughter send me a list of things to borrow: high chair, pack-n-play, rear facing car seat, and the like! Good thing I don’t work with people my age!! Thankfully my coworkers are supplying me with all the necessities both large and small.

Tonight I spent the evening learning how to use this contraption!

Don’t be fooled by its simplicity!

I did manage to get the Pack-n-Play open and stable so that’s ready to go! I don’t know if I could have ever gotten the car seat in place without help. I’m very grateful when my coworker offered to install that bad boy in my back seat. A gymnastic feat was involved in securing the straps. All that’s left to do is to buy some diapers, wipes, and a whole lot of Cheerios!



Guess who’s going to be a grandma?!

This week it is official after a visit to the doctor. My daughter and son-in-law are expecting their first child! Hubby and I are all so excited! We’re going to be grandparents!

Back when I was pregnant with my daughter, who is also my first born, you didn’t get ultrasounds unless there were worries. Nowadays you can get one on the first visit – at nine weeks!

Without further ado here is my grand-baby!

We’re still trying to figure out who’s side of the family baby looks like!

P.S. Thanks for indulging me!
