Road Trip

This morning I got up nice and early and got ready for a quick overnight road trip with my mom and dad to visit my brother in Alliston, approx. 3 hrs from home. When we arrived we went to ToysRUs for the first store and it was great. I purchased this great little booster seat (pictured below) that is completely portable, so we can take it around to restaurants and others homes when we have Kaysen, this way he will always have a seat no matter where we are and I know it will be clean. Seeing as i worked in restaurants many years, I know how clean the ones in the restaurants are...not really. It later turns into a toodler booster seat as well. My parents also bought me a great new play pen, unfortunately I couldn't find an online picture to show you but once I have it opened I will add it. The best part was the booster was 40% off and the playpen was 50% off. I mean how much better can that get. We had fun looking at all the toys and pushing all the buttons, my parents were as excited as I was. I can't wait for them to be grandparents again.

After being kids for about 1 hr we dropped by the mall to pick up some hot chocolate from Second cup as it's the best and we don't have one in Sudbury and then drove out to my brother for a great visit. It's so cute as my sister in law is just starting to show, she is approx. 4 mths now, they actually got to hear the heart beat this week. As I was sitting here discussing babies and pregnancy it hit me that my baby is probably conceived at this time. IF the time lines are correct and we are getting a referral in 8 months than he would have to be conceived which means that he has a little heart beat going of his own. I may not be able to hear it physically, but in my heart it's there and it's beating strong awaiting the day he becomes our son. If he is conceived at this point I would just like to send him a small message "Welcome to the world little guy, I hope you are cozy in your mommy's belly. Have fun in there and be careful once you come out, we will be there shortly after to bring you to your FOREVER HOME. Mommy and Daddy both love you lots."


So anyways that was my day and now i'm off to bed and back on the road in the am to get back to my husband and furbabies at home.

That's awesome you found some great deals, that seat sounds really handy and I love sales!! You made me get a little teary eyed at your letter to Kaysen, it's beautiful, what a great mommy you're going to be!

Natalie,
I'm glad you had a good time with your family and I hope that you get home safe and sound. Love the booster seat! AND a playpen...awesome! Even better getting both for fantastic deals!

My mom and her husband spoiled us this past week and sent us a camcorder for Christmas! I can record our referral, trip to Africa, etc. Too cool!

You know, I've been thinking. Even if I don't get through court before closures and it will delay our process...it could bring US close to travelling around the same time...wouldn't it? That would be AWESOME! There's a plus to everything, right?

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

That's the chair that Sofia uses everyday. I opted not to get her a high chair. It's been 7 months and no complaints! I'm glad you are having fun shopping for your son.
