We have no plans for the weekend which is kind of nice. I do need to organize our dine with 9 group for church and get the ball rolling there. We have picked out our menu and look forward to having people over. Luis and I are also setting our first real budget for next month and we are both looking forward to that.
I think some coffee is in order for today so I will have to go make some to wake up, hopefully today will be a good one. (Just cold)

This morning Matias dressed himself with a little help from me. It still amazes me how fast children change and the rate they do it. It is different from baby changing, but all together so amazing. From pretending, to dressing, to potty training (hahahah! we are so not doing well on that but I am not too stressed about it) all in all it is really amazing. Again, I am so overwhelmed by "motherhood". I think the best part is the gift that a child has blessed us with, when I was least expecting it.
As we move into this next stage of parenthood, I am remembering to keep with my motto that I had with Matias, no expectations is the best way to go. I will not let myself build this new person up into anything that she won't be, and let her be herself. That includes how she wants to make her grand entrance into this world.
On a different note today is Ash Wed. I have been thinking about how I can make a big change in my life. I think my biggest weakness is eating out. So for 40 days none of my money will be used to eat in a restaurant. Here is to home cooking! Wish me luck, my supportive husband laughed for 8 years when I told him this so we shall see who comes out on top....

I have officially begun to freak out and nest! I cleaned out my clothing drawers and may have given most of my clothing away...but now I have room for the baby's stuff. Luis is busy finishing up the basement and we hope to move our bed and computer/craft stuff down in about 2 weeks.
Once that happens, I think we will get Matias a toddler bed. Which I have very mixed feelings about. He has not once tried to climb out of the crib, and the baby will be in the Moses basket for however long she wishes. and he knows how to open the bedroom door and come out. Which makes me nervous with us moving to a different floor that involves going down a flight of stairs. But alas, all the worry for nothing I am sure.
I was excited for only a few more Dr appts as well, but then I remember that after delivery I have to go on cumindin and see the hematologist. So that part is not really over yet.
Anyway I look at it I am so excited to meet this gal. We are heading off to my parents this weekend and I hope to get some stuff down here so I hopefully will feel much more ready than I do at this moment in time.
Oh and I must order some baby leggings!!

Second, M.I.A. at the grammy's WOW! I wish she had more of the spotlight because she is an amazing artist! Was a little undermined by all "energy" of the other performers. I love how no matter what she goes all out. She is one of those people that is so in turn with who they are and I envy that. I think it hard to be who you are, 100% all the time, but the fact that she able to do what she does well time and time again, is truly an inspiration to me.
