Weekend Ice Storm

On Friday we were hit by freezing rain, so instead of risking driving into work we decided to take a "sick day" and relax at home. I'm glad we did! By the time we ventured out for groceries Friday evening our car was encased in a 1/2 inch of ice!

The next morning we were met with beautiful landscapes - everything covered in ice and snow. Even the nearby stream created some interesting fog in the distance. Everything was so beautiful, and we had some nice mild temperatures. It gives you the illusion that Spring is just around the corner... a cruel illusion once you realize that there's still 2 months to go!

Baby Shower

On Saturday, my cousin threw us a baby shower. We had a great time with lots of friends and family, all of who spoiled our little girl rotten!

Only a few weeks to go before she gets to enjoy all the wonderful gifts!

Getting Ready for Baby!

After considering both scenarios, we decided to try the cloth diaper route rather than disposable diapers. The big tipping point in our decision was cost. So just before New Year's, we placed our order for cloth diapers, and we received them earlier this week. We ordered the largest kit they had - enough for full-time cloth diapering. We've since washed them and got them all stored away in the change table. We still haven't ordered the crib yet, but at least the baby bottom has been taken care of!

And, our heat-seeking cat found himself a nice little nook for a nap this week =)
