Date with Baby Grey

We had our 'Targeted Ultrasound' with Baby Grey yesterday. First off, she is a doll, second, a little bit of a brat, and third, completely all Cory & Erin. I cannot wait until we meet her and get to know her little personality. So far, she is shy, stubborn, acrobatic, and adorable.

It's crazy to think that this little baby has a personality already, and I LOVE her. This morning we were resting before we got ready for the day and Chica was cuddling with us. I think Baby Grey could hear her and she started kicking Chica, of course, spoiled Chica started kicking back. Oh dear, this might be my new life!

Loves and hugs--hmmm....my new life, BRING IT!

Since we are going to cloth diaper...'They" say sun is the best bleaching agent for diapers...so naturally, I needed a clothesline. I was looking for a used one but everyone I found had clothes on it and CC wouldn't ask. This model will not take up my entire yard and CC can take it down in the winter! 
Loves and hugs--I cannot wait to use this new GREEN product!

Cory Land

CC's first Father's Day present from Baby Grey!
Bear Lake was a fabulous! Next year, Baby Grey, and cocktails!
Loves and hugs--My Heaven!

Never Been Blogged Before

Say hello to my little friend, Louie!
Shane, Zak, CC, and Erin took a trip in November...on the way home we past Saks 5th Ave. Yep, I went in dress that way, and I came out with Louie! Isn't he wonderful?

Loves and hugs--I think so too!

Much to do about nothing...

I realize I am due in 16 weeks (YIKES) and I have not read ONE book about childbirth. The logical side in me says, "Erin, you better start flipping through a few of those books that are sitting collecting dust." But the not-so-logical side says, "Erin, women have been giving birth for thousands of years, you'll be fine."

The reality is...I am tired, really tired, when I have a free moment, I should be reading text books not birthing books, I still have this degree to finish, we are still remodeling, there is a practicum site to be found, a resume to update, registering for baby Grey, birthing classes to take, doctor appointments, really, the list is ENDLESS!

Loves and hugs--Just do it!

Where does the time go?

OMG--I am six months--six months. I see why pregnant ladies talk in weeks, 24 weeks not so bad, 6 months holy cow!

In my short time being pregnant I can tell you the most annoying question:
"Do you have a name yet?"

Let me make a general statement--NO! Well, actually we do, but we are not announcing her name until she makes her debut. The thing about announcing your baby's name already, 1. Someone will try to take it, 2. They make some comment about your name, 3. They try to suggest a name for you, 4. It's not really your business--so back off!

While I'm at it...please do not touch me. It's wrong in so many ways! Are your hands clean? Do you want me to touch your belly?

Loves and hugs--Thanks for listening!

Big Day!

Yes, we are one of the lucky few that are going to see Harry Potter before the official release date! The best part about it is I have my nephew Tanner here to go with me. Until November last year I had not watch a single show...now I am well versed in all things Potter.

Loves and hugs--I know you are envious! :)

This is my worst pregnant day so far...I have not stopped whining all day.  Even I am getting sick of hearing it. Sorry friends...I am going to have a pity party for myself today!

-To start the day off I had to work early! BOO!
-I got CC's coffee on my new white sweater.
-My digestive troubles were at an all time high!
-I have TONS to do this week and no time to do it!
-There is more homework than hours in the day!
-Managing 60--14-18 year olds today for a summer program.
This really hasn't been my favorite day. I just want to go home and cuddle with CC. But...its shop night and his free night to drink beer (not nice!) and I am home cleaning and doing homework.  Poor me!

On the brighter side...I have 3, yes, 3 classes left and 600 hours of practicum and then I will FINALLY be finished with my schooling!

Loves and hugs--That news made up for a whining day!

New Chair

Baby Grey has a new highchair!
The coloring is WAY off but it is SO cute, its pink. 
(I know, I don't love pink but for the price!)

We will need to figure out a tray situation but who cares, its down right adorable. 
Loves and hugs--Swap meets and $5 highchairs are the best!

Someday in the near future...I hope I have time on a hot Saturday/Sunday to visit my Utah Heaven, Bear Lake!  
Loves and hugs--I hope it is before August 20th!

Cloth Diapering

Yes, Baby Grey is going GREEN! The hippie in me WILL make this happen. Once you see the stats Thirsties shares in their catalog you might consider it too!

*86% of their customers say they spend LESS THAN 2 HOURS laundering their clothe diapers each week! AWESOME!
*86% of their customers say that using cloth diapers is SO MUCH EASIER than they thought it would be! (How will we know unless we try?)
*46% of their customers say the financial savings are the #1 reason the are committed

Did you know that disposable diapers have a fine print? They do...
***IMPORTANT: Shake baby soil into toilet.*** 
(Raw sewage that is tossed into our landfills contaminates our water supply and breeds viruses and bacteria that are then spread to humans by insects.)

I assume they leave the last sentence out because people are too concerned with convenience not conservation. 

Loves and hugs--even a small gesture can make a difference.

P.S. I am looking for a 'umbrella' clothesline if you know of anyone in UT looking to get rid of theirs I WANT it! (The sun is the best bleaching agent!)

Composting is the coolest...all the cool people do it!
(This awesome product is replacing a plastic ice cream bucket.)
This weekend we went to Park City to World Market, this is my newest 'green' product!

Loves and hugs--Will you start composting?

She Knows

Picture this...Lady and The Tramp...the baby comes home and Darling feels left out.

Now fast forward to the the Grey's story...Chica knows! Her life is about to change--and she is sad.

I feel awful for her, doesn't she know she is our first child?

Loves and hugs--that doggie will ALWAY have a place in our hearts, she just has to make room for Baby Grey.
