Baby Shopping

Today we went to Wal Mart to use some gift cards that we got at our shower in Dallas. We had quite a few things left on our list. We knocked some of them off the list today.

While it's exciting to have done that, I discovered how much I really hate Wal Mart. Since I don't feel like totally reliving the experience, I'll make this brief. It was really crowded, dirty, didn't have some things that I thought would be basic for furnishing a baby room, and had really long lines. The only upside: a helpful woman in the baby section. Unfortunately, still not helpful enough. We did save about $80 because we didn't buy them at Babies R Us, but it's not a fair estimation because some of the things are different sizes: diapers, wipes, etc.

Tonight I packed the baby's hospital bag. I started packing a lot of stuff that I ended up taking out of the bag because I know that the hospital will have it. In the bag, I left: onesies, socks, diapers, diaper creme, and wipes.

I guess I could pack a bag for us soon. If this pregnancy goes the way that the other one did then I'll need my smaller maternity clothes for after the delivery. Unfortunately they're not for the right season. I might be wearing some baggy clothes on the way home.

The last couple of days I've felt something pointy pointing my belly. Without knowing for sure, I'm assuming that it's an elbow. It's possible it's a knee, but there's really no way to tell. Then tonight when I was making dinner I felt something move inside and put my hand on the belly. It was something small and softer than the joint I've been feeling. I'm guessing a hand or foot. I never got to this point in my pregnancy with Malachi and amongst all the unfun stuff I've been going through these last few weeks, it's been a lot of fun to experience these little things.
