...could you please grace us with your presence sometime soon? We are soooooo ready for you, or so we think right now. Mommy & Daddy even went out last night & bought a new car, just to bring you home in! It is your first car :) Baby Fleisch, we have a pretty low-key weekend plan, we just ask that you not decide to come tomorrow while we are baby sitting your first real girlfriend, Miss Mabel Jane Shiffer. You are welcome to come any other time this weekend & we would love it if you would.
...Eggplant parmesan, bumpy car rides, quasi-spicy food (which I don't like), sitting/bouncing on a stability ball all have not gotten this baby anywhere close to coming. So I thought maybe a nice heartfelt note from Mommy might get him/her going. It always worked & still does for me when I get nice notes from my Mommy.
Last night Matt & I went & checked out cars, again. I was pretty much done with the idea of getting a car before the baby arrives, but Matt found the Dodge Journey & we checked it out online. It looked pretty appealing to me, so 2 hours later, we were driving away with our new 2009 Dodge Journey. I keep referring to it as "fancy." It has so many great features, including seating for 7! Now we can have 3 more babies & still have room! JUST KIDDING! I do not want 3 more babies! But seriously, coolers built in to the floor, tons of storage compartments, dual climate control, & Matt's favorite feature, the Ipod jack, etc. It is referred to as a mini-van in a crossover/suv. Now I HATE to even compare it to a minivan, but it does provide that kind of space.
Well, let the weekend begin. I am 99.9% sure it will be uneventful, but one can hope.
I am very excited to break the news of this blog as well & refuse to do so until we have a happy, heathy baby in our arms. If when you are reading this for the first time, don't think that you have been missing out on knowing the blog address since June...no one except Matt & I know that I have been blogging all this time & no one knows what it says, except me :)
Above is a stock picture of our new car! Note this is the first major purchase that we have made/decided upon together. For those of you who don't know, Matt went on tour the day our house went on the market & I put a bid in on it (with his blessing) without him ever having seen it! The first he ever got to see it was the day before settlement when we did the walk through. I also bought the Honda Fit by myself when he was on tour (again, with his blessing).
