A Girl Can Never Have Enough Shoes

We have been bringing Nia's clothes over to put in her new furniture including her rather large collection of shoes...

I Am So Proud Of Us

Melissa and I actually ordered and built an armoire for Nia, and if you knew us you would be impressed. Now we get to fill it with all her clothes, well at least the ones for the first 6 months, then well swap it out. 26 DAYS!!!

Onesie, Twosie, Threesie

Here are some other super adorable gifts from our friends...

Melissa and just did our Pilates for pregnancy workout and the mutual "partner" stretching exercises. We need to go shopping for some summer maternity outfits since it is getting hot in here even though shes only 32 days and counting. Nia and I continue our 3am poking sessions (that's when I'm snuggled up next to Melissa and I feel one of Nia's foot or elbow pushing against me and I feel compelled to tap back and see if she responds, even though the response is Melissa usually going "Really? Its 3am").

Further Adventures OF Zeva and Alex

Since we don't have Nia here yet we keep on practicing with Zeva and Alex... But there's only 32 days left so the countdown is really progressing now and we're really getting anxious and exited!

"So, next month..."

So Eric and I were at a friend's house this evening for Passover Seder. One of the other guests who earlier asked about our due date at one point said to me "So, next month..." to which I responded, "No, it's M...yeah it is next month". It didn't really occur to me until that moment. Wow. Next month, there will be this new person who will need us all the time for everything but at the same time give us more than we can ever imagine. We've started the discussions on choosing a pediatrician, and I have some preferences based on observations I've made during my pediatric rotations. The apartment is still far from ready, but I'm still optimistic that we just work better under tighter deadlines. Also, my mom is coming at the end of this month to crackdown on us for what we haven't done yet. I'm also becoming a bit anxious about the little bit of time I will have to be at home with Nia before I start internship. Orientation starts the middle of June, which cuts my time even more. She's not even born and I'm starting to feel guilty about leaving her. What eases my mind, however, is that she will have the bestest Daddy ever taking care of her. -M

Muchas Gracias

We wanted to once again thank everyone who has given Nia such wonderful things, I am in the process of taking pictures of them and will post them soon! We have made out thank you cards but apparently getting them to the post office is easier then it sounds...

7 Weeks (or 49 Days / 70,560 Minutes) Left...

We're right at 33 weeks now and we had another appointment with the midwife last week and everything is looking perfect. In fact the midwife actually said that Melissa wore pregnancy well and looks great, not that that is going to convince her to do it again. Right now we are cleaning up as much as we can before Melissa's Mother comes in this month to help us organize the apartment in anticipation of Nia taking over the space. Frankly, we just want Nia here already because we want to hug her and squeeze her and kiss her little belly. (But we're not calling her George, if you don't know the reference then you missed great classic cartoons)

I really wish that Gillian was here to experience all this with us since this is her sister. Hopefully she can come visit longer in the summer so they can spend time together. I am also exited that Nia will have little friends like Zeva and Alex here to play with.

Zeva Warrior Princess

Our friend Meira's daughter Zeva is about as cute as it gets and we love spending time with her and can't wait for Nia to be born so they can become friends. I am already thinking of the day we can take the two of them to places like the Zoo and the park. They are pretty much going to be a year apart, so Zeva will be two just before Nia's first birthday.
