Tell Me Your Favs!

Wow, I can't imagine how someone feels who is having a baby 7 or 8 years after another child. It's been 5 years since we bought baby items (baby #2 came so quickly that we never even put up the other stuff.) I'm not really sure what we need to replace or what is just so cool that we can't live without :) We are definitely looking into a slimmer infant carrier now that we will have to squeeze 3 car seats across hubby's bench seat. Anyway, any advice will be appreciated, so tell me what's hot and share your favs!

Dear Diary.........

I went for my 16 week check-up today (it feels like it should at least be my 30 week visit.) Baby's heartbeat was a little hard to find at first, but then popped up (exhale.) 150 beats per minute. I can't remember which way the old wive's tale says --boys fast and girls slow? Anyway, I have lots of fears this time that I don't remember having with the boys. I talked with my doc about the experiences I had last time with my spinal block. Kind of scary. He wants to set up a consult with anesthesiologist when closer to time. General anesthesia was mentioned and I feel myself being even more nervous. Are these fears completely irrational? I feel panic setting in....help!

Safari --Tennessee Style






Some friends told us about the drive-thru "safari" in Alamo, TN and we decided to give it a try this weekend. We had so much fun! The animals come right up to your car and you can feed them with feed bought at the entrance. Some were a little too close for comfort for me! An ostrich thought some interior parts near the steering wheel looked edible and he kept popping his head in the window. An over-eager bull that Ryan nick-named "Leroy" was a messy eater and had his whole head in the window, but other than that most were timid eaters. At the end, you can park and go up to the petting zoo where you can feed goats, a giraffe, camels and see monkeys and macaws. And, as always, there's a gift shop! If your interested in going, see there website www.tennesseesafaripark.com and check for 1/2 price days.
