A Taste of Spring

 Brandon took Elora for a walk while I was at my OB check on Monday.  This is what I found when I got home:

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous for the past few days, and we've done our best to get out and enjoy it.  


The high for today was 76°F.  We went for our walk in short sleeves, capris and sandals, and we opened all the windows in the house.


Brandon found this little playground the other day when he went for a run, so we went to check it out.  It's way at the back of our housing development (and I mean waaaaaaaaaaaay at the back) so I strapped her in to the umbrella stroller instead of letting her walk.  It was fine on the way there, but she was not happy about getting back in it for the walk back.  Oh well.
I'm really excited about this little play ground.  I just ordered my double stroller today, and I can see myself bringing the girls out here together often this summer.  Perhaps I'm being too optimistic in thinking that I can handle seeing to the little one and playing with Elora, but darn it, I am going to try!  

We're coming down to the wire, when it comes to this baby.  As of Sunday I have only 3 weeks until my due date.  Things are coming together, though.  The car seat got here yesterday, and along with the stroller, I ordered a dresser and crib mattress pad today.  I still want to get a bouncer and a new changing table, but those things can wait.  A little at a time, right?  It will be a huge relief just to get the dresser in there, and all filled up.  They should be here in a week, I can't wait!
