four hundred and eleventy reasons we need to move...

As most of you know, Adam and I live on campus in a two story shoebox townhouse.  Or maybe you didn't.  But whatever.  It's really not that incredibly small for just Adam and I.  But there is no way that we could have re-signed our lease with a baby coming.  Why do these little turds have to have so much crap?! I mean, Adam and I are getting rid of our kitchen table and turning our kitchen into the "storage room" for the next few months.  It's okay because I don't cook we eat in the den anyways, so we don't need that space.  Seriously though, Presley already has so much stuff.  What can I say, we are spoiled by our wonderful family! We are so grateful for everything that everyone has bought us already, but I'm just wondering who's going to buy us the house to put all of this in.  Any takers? No?? But WHY!?

We do plan on moving, though.  Our lease here is up at the end of July, which is just stupendous timing since I am due at the end of July.  I'm going to go out on a limb and say that we will most likely move at the beginning of July instead.  That should be a fun time for everyone, I can see it now: Me, all large and in charge at 9 months pregnant in the deathly summer heat, bossing everyone around where to move or put things in the new place while they try not to pass out from heat exhaustion.  Good times will be had by all I am sure!  We have looked at some places on the south side of town, which I would usually not be too thrilled about because the morning and afternoon traffic down there makes me want to pluck my eyeballs out.  But, it's close to my work, Presley's day care, and my Grandparents house (which is important because they'll be the ones to keep her if I can't get off work when she's sick and can't go to school).  Of course I wouldn't really have to worry about the traffic because it's close to my work, but it would suck may-jah donkey butt for Toasty! Priorities change when you have a little nugget though! 

We will see, we may get lucky and find a house to rent that's better located for Adam and still reasonably close to my work and junk.  I know it's going to creep up on us though and then I will be all bat-$hit-crazy trying to find a place to live.  Hopefully I still have some great house searching abilities left in my from the good ol' baseball days! Oh, and just as an extra tid-bit in the oh-so-inneresting rant, we do not want to buy a house..renting only! We have no idea if we are going to say in Tuscaloosa once Adam is done with school, and we would hate to have to worry about selling a house in a few years..makes me want to puke just thinking about it- or maybe I want to puke because I just ate 1,400 grapes.  

I digress.

Anywho, so I know you all are just dying to see everything we have for the la nina, Presley.  I knew that because apparently once you hit the 6 month of pregnancy you become psychic.  So here I am to fulfill all of your hopes and dreams!

Just so you know, Adam and I are incredibly blessed with families who are willing to help a brotha and sista....and baby out! We haven't had to buy anything yet (except for all of the clothes I keep buying her).


1) Adams parents bought us the travel system.  We picked it out before we knew it was a girl & we picked one that we could use more than once, so if we have a boy next time we can hopefully still use this stuff! Wait, did I just say next time? "Easy L-Dizzle...you haven't even popped the first one out."
2) Here is a better picture of the car seat (you may have to click on the pics to make them larger).  We chose the Quattro Tour Deluxe Travel System by Graco.  It's the Maddox pattern. We will just make it look more girly by adding some pink accessories to it!
3) My Dad got us the pack-n-play to match the rest of the goods! This will be nice to take down to Florida when we visit Adams family!
4) I already posted picture of her furniture in this blog post.  Here are a few pictures of her bedding.  I bought it at the Pottery Barn Kids in Birmingham after looking at every other bedding website online. Wait, so that means I did buy something on my own.  Go me!





5) I just got our diaper bag this past weekend! My wonderful Dad drove down on Saturday for the day and we did a little shopping!  I want to get her name monogrammed in hot pink on her diaper bag, but I'm not sure yet.  It's a Kalencom diaper bag & is a water resistant fabric, so I'm not positive if it's monogram-able or not!

6) Also while my Dad was in town we ordered the glider & ottoman.  We got it off Walmart.com and it was much cheaper than everything else we were looking at.  It will be here by April 12th and Adam is pretty pumped about using it as his "Xbox chair" until July.   



7) Lastly, the swing! Oh snap, just remembered that I did pay for this too.  We actually got this swing from a girl my Mom used to work with.  She said her son only used it a few times, he didn't like it, so she sold it to us for $75 and threw in a free Bumbo! 



Ok, that's all I have for now.  Maybe I should've broken this down into several smaller posts.  Too late, I hope you survived this long sucker! I will post an update on my ever-growing uterus stomach tomorrow.  Swear!!!!
