Baby Basics


Erick and I went to a class this morning called "Baby Basics" that the Navy offers for new parents. It was a pretty informative class, they taught us pretty much what the first month with a new baby is going to be like, talked about babies with colic and stuff like how to clean the umbilical cord and how to bathe a baby properly and and what to do if it's sick and stuff like that. I know a lot of that seems like it should be common sense type stuff but...i want to be as prepared has humanly possible before our little girl gets here! So off to the classes I go. We've got another on on Thursday that is about putting together a stable budget with a new addition and then next month I'll be taking a breastfeeding class and an infant/child CPR class. I'm also hoping to sign up for a birthing class they hold at the hospital I'll be delivering at, at some point during July if my schedule works out! Things tend to fill in for me fast around here!

For example, I'm going to girls camp for my church next
week! I'll be gone for 4 days with Erick at home by himself....that's a first for our marriage so...lol we'll see how he handles the house by himself! Hopefully I should have some fun pictures from that when I get back. And then, also at the end of next week Erick's mom and younger half-sister are coming out to visit and they will be here until July 6th! It will be good for me I think, I haven't spent more then a couple of hours with his mom, and seeing that our marriage was a little bit of a surprise for his family I figure this will give her a good opportunity to scope me out and see how she really feels about me. :) It should be good though...I'm a little nervous but...lol I don't know, I guess I'll keep y'all posted on that as well!



So there's the update for now. Here is a pic of my growing belly...still got a decent amount of growing to do but...atleast you can see what I look like right now at 27 weeks!

Love,
Jen

Do you Facebook? I would love to add you as a friend! I am actually on there more often than I blog.

...We need to get Nana to join Facebook. That would help motivate the rest of the family--its a great way to keep in touch.

But I think Farmington still has only dial-up. Ick. :-P
