Thankfully the shower was on Saturday instead of Sunday because it gave me the rest of the weekend to unwrap the many items from their packaging, put them away, assemble and wash them, and organize it all. By Sunday night, Kyle and I were heading to see Bob Dylan perform at UCF, and I was dead tired. It felt like I was moving all weekend into a place that was up 10 flights up stairs. I was utterly exhausted. There was no stopping me though! If I wasn't productively doing something involving Jack, then I wasn't thinking about it. The nursery isn't completely finished, but it's getting closer and closer to becoming officially ready for his arrival. Kyle keeps reminding me, "He's not getting here tomorrow!". Kyle is certainly a good balance for me to keep me a little grounded and not think so irrationally. [For example: We went to Babys R us this weekend to look for a glider. The design we wanted came in two colors. The color that matches Jack's room would have to be ordered so we would have to wait a few weeks to bring it home. The other one, that would not match at all, was in stock and we could bring it home that day. Overly-excited Jill wouldn't think rationally, and wanted instant gratification. I would've been kicking myself in the butt if we would've came home with that chair rather than waiting. Anyways, the moral of the story was Kyle talked me out of it, so we were saved from my crazy pregnancy drama...]
Also, today was our Baby Care class, which went well. We were the only ones in the class, so it was like a one-on-one tutoring session with the instructor for 2 and a half hours. We learned how to swaddle the baby, all about bathing, diaper changing, soothing a crying baby, sleep patterns, etc. Very helpful information that you can't hear enough to relax a new parent. I was feeling a little overwhelmed and down right freaked out about this whole "being a parent" thing the other week....but now, to be completely honest, I have a satisfying feeling that all things will be more than okay and that Kyle and I will be really great parents. I finally convinced myself of this, and it's a really great feeling. Don't get me wrong, I will still be a little nervous and have moments of terror, but as a whole, I know that it will all be okay, and I couldn't be happier!
