35 weeks!!

So wow, we are 35 weeks pregnant today!! I cannot believe how time has flown by. This means that we have MAYBE 5 weeks left... O M G... then the fun really begins! I am to the "uncomfy stage" of this but it's all worth it!
We received the cutest, most thoughtful, NEEDED gift yesterday that we didn't even think to register for...

ISN'T IT ADORABLE!?? A co-worker of ours delivered it to Josh yesterday at work since she could not come to our shower and boy are we thankful! We had heard how much of a lifesaver the bouncer/vibration seat can be and it never crossed our mind to get one. Course, we thought, "hey, we've got the swing, it'll be good enough." Well since getting this little joy, we will have TWICE the fun! I put it together last night and it was not that difficult. Yes, I did have to re-do some steps, but it was overall, not that bad. Not like our Pack-n-Play or Swing was... UGH... the Pack-N-Play play-pen part was easy, it just pops open and folds up but the stupid sleeper attachment and changing station attachment almost made me and Josh have a come to Jesus moment! UGH it was awful! It took us almost 2 hours to put just those 2 TINY parts together! And the swing was not that bad but it had A LOT of little parts and directions and blah blah blah... Here's pics of what our stuff looks like:
The highchair WILL look like this eventually but to show the total package, I included a pic of it as well even though right now it's still in the box...





OH, and we now know that we need every type/size battery known to man! OMG! We need AAA, AA, C & even D batteries!! Come on?! Why not make all baby accessories take ONE TYPE of battery!? That's what I"d suggest! SO, we've got everything put together but the highchair b/c Shelby won't use that until she's older and got everything BUT OUR ROCKER/GLIDER, OTTOMAN SET that we need for Shelby other than a wipee warmer and Bumpo chair (we were told to wait on these items b/c 2 church members may get these for us). Ok.. here's the rocker/glider, ottoman story...

We went this weekend to get the stuff we needed for Shelby after all our showers including our glider/rocker and ottoman and ours was in stock, Yeah! Well we get ALLLLLLLLL the way home (an hour away from the nearest target) and find that they gave us THE WRONG ONE!!!! See, when u go to Target, if you have not experienced this, they don't have the rockers/gliders in the boxes under the displays, you have to take this little tag w/ the PICTURE, the ITEM #, BAR CODE, and basically EVERYTHING YOU'D NEED TO GET THE RIGHT ONE, to a clerk and they go in the back and get it for you, bring it to the check-out and load it up for you in ur car. Ok, well, here in Arkansas, it's been flash flooding, Noah-build-another-ark-type rain-storm the past 3 days (and Saturday happened to be THE WORST DAY of course) and so when they brought the glider w/ ottoman box to us, it was all opened up and I freaked and they said, "Oh we've been having leaks so we opened it and made sure EVERYTHING was ok and not damaged"...well OBVIOUSLY they didn't look TOO hard b/c RIGHT UNDER THE CUSHIONS ON THE TOP ARE THE WOODEN BARS AND PIECES THAT ARE NOT THE BARS/PIECES TO THE ONE WE GAVE THEM IN THE PICTURE FROM THE TAG!!! SEE, we want the white wood one, Target had the only WHITE WOOD one we liked that was under $200 ($159.99 to be exact). SOooo when we get home, Josh sees that the box says "CHERRY" under the color AND on the ticket said that the glider & ottoman THEY BROUGHT US WAS $199.99!!!!!! Josh and I about wigged out!! So, we got the glider/rocker w/ ottoman WE DID NOT WANT and PAID WHAT WE DIDN'T WANT and now have to go alll the way back to return it. We also can't go back until the 12th because Josh will be out of town and that is also when my next dr.'s appt. is so that's the convience we have. OH, AND when we got home, we got in the mail "10% off everything left on ur registry" coupon from Target so HOPEFULLY they'll give us that b/c it is still ON our registry!! So, when you go to get your big ticket items like this, MAKE SURE YOU CHECK your items, even if they "say" they've checked them and the box(es) are opened up, and don't rely on them b/c this could happen to u! :( UGH!! I now am reminded of this daily b/c it's in the back of our Tahoe and that's all I can see out of our back glass so it's a daily attitude adjustment for me! haha...
