Shopping...

As we near closer and closer to Samuel's arrival, James and I have found ourselves talking more about the things that we want to get for him. While pregnant with Liv, I had put off buying a good chunk of necessities due to wanting to wait until James was home for R&R after her birth. I figured we could go shopping for those items together. Plus, we were due to have a belated baby shower with friends and family a few months later, so I just stuck to what we absolutely needed right out of the hospital...I figured the rest could wait. Well, here we are in a similar situation -- 3 1/2 weeks away (or less) and the realization that he very well could make it is hitting us...

With talk of the necessities that need to be purchased, we've also begun looking into the things that we had wanted for Liv, but hadn't gotten around to getting yet...and if Sam makes it, we DEFINITELY want for him. For instance, one of those cute Pottery Barn chairs -- love those things! Not only would he be able to use it when he's a little older (I realize that as a newborn, it won't get much use), but I could take his monthly picture on it as he grows...


I guess we'll see how the coming weeks go -- if we get to bring our little man home. I still have yet to set up the room since I promised James that we wouldn't touch that until after he's here. It has been tempting, though. I recently gave in and bought the wall letters for his name and will soon paint those. Even with all of the fear (and there is a LOT of it!), it's hard not to try and let ourselves get excited. I'm half-tempted to order the little PB chair when we're in ATL next Friday...we shall see...
