I bought my first baby item!

Over the past nine years, I've never let myself buy anything for a baby. I broke down yesterday and bought a stuffed rabbit. It felt so good! Rob says it's girly because it has some pink on it. I don't think so. Even if it does, our kid is getting the stuffed rabbit with pink on it. You know that feeling when you think/hope you're pregnant and you go to the store to buy a pregnancy test? The anticipation and nervousness you feel? That's how I felt yesterday. And I guess in a sense, while I'm not pregnant, I sort of am. Except my pregnancy is without weight gain, stretch marks, and labor pains. But I am counting down the days until our baby is here.

We're waiting to hear back about our I-600A. We took our passport pictures this week (of course I hate mine), Rob applied for his passport, and I'll apply for mine in Watertown on Tuesday. I also took pictures of our house and we're still waiting to take pictures of us. It has to be done by Monday night so I can get them developed in Watertown on Tuesday. Good news, though...I bought a skirt that fits! Yay! I was in Penney's on Saturday and they were having a big sale. I found the skirt and jacket that match my one pair of pants that fits. The skirt was $7.50 and the jacket (regularly $60) was $15! Woo-Hoo! I am such a bargain shopper! Of course, then I went to Target and spent $160. We hadn't been to Aberdeen forever so I had lots to buy. To make up for the amount of money I knew I was spending, I bought Target brand toilet paper, soap...It better be good. I even bought my own hair color so I can stop spending over $100 to go to a salon. I'm not sure how this is going to turn out so I'm going to do it quick while Rob's gone. Cross your fingers.

Yay! Pretty soon, you're going to have to buy all sorts of cool things: crib, sheets, glider-rocker, car seat. I can't wait to hear about it!
