Good Grief

Ok, so again I have a lot of random information to pass on. It has been a pretty calm week for the most part. Virginia is growing fast and is getting chunky. But she is still cute as a button. She has her doctor's appointment Monday. I will be sad to see her get three shots, but excited to see how much she weighs. She has been a little more fussy than usual. So we decided to go up to Hickory Monday to this children's shop called Once Upon a Child to buy a swing. We dropped Virginia off at Reiggin's parents and went on our way. It was so nice to have some time where it was just me and Reiggin and no crying baby. We went to the mall and had Chick-fil-a. And then went to Game Stop where Reiggin got a new XBox game and I got a microphone to use on Guitar Hero World Tour. Later, I will be getting my early Christmas present and getting Animal Crossing: City Folk. I am super excited about the new game. I roped Lisa into getting it with me. So we can play and chat together. Next we went to the children's shop. Oh my gosh, it was amazing. There was rows and rows of clothes. And awesome toys. We found the perfect swing that matches the stroller and pack-n-play that we already have. And we also picked out some new outfits that looked brand new. I fell in love with this store. I wish I had known about it before I had Virginia. They had awesome deals. So we headed back home and luckily Virginia behaved great for the grandparents. She was pretty sleepy, thank goodness. But I must say the swing is a life saver. It rocks Virginia to sleep in minutes. Giving me time to eat and clean the house without having to tote her around. And it gives us more time to spend together during the night. 

Also, I have found a new eye doctor up here in Statesville. I hope it goes smooth. I am sure it will. But I needed to get the prescription and brand of contacts I wear. So I couldn't find an empty box. I called my old doctor and asked if they could tell me over the phone. Okay, I understand that they can't tell medical information over the phone. But good grief, all I wanted was my eye prescription. Anyway, it is all good. 

But to wrap up my week, I will be preparing for my sister Susan's baby shower. Hopefully everything goes well and my food will be great. I can't wait to see my sisters and parents. Also, it will be the first time that my aunt will get to see Virginia. So that is all. I hope everyone is doing well. Now Virginia is crying so off I go.

Looks like the swing is working like a charm.

Yep...that is exactly like the one I got at Julia's church consignment sale.

How did you survive without a swing??? Who am I kidding, Lila would have nothing to do with it, I had to wear her in the carrier just to keep her from screaming ;)

Good luck with the baby shower!
