Today Rich and took the opportunity while Nathan was at pre-school to do a little shopping for those last few items we need to have before Trackie arrives. We ventured to the Babies R Us in Calabasas. It was a bit surreal as I had been in that Babies R Us a million times in preparation for Nathan's arrival....and then a million times more after he arrived. It's definitely much different this time around. This was my first real trip to any baby store for Trackie as most of our baby "shopping" has been done in our garage.
On the shopping list....a new carseat, baby shampoo, diaper cream, diapers, wipes, a new changing table pad, new diaper pail.....and that was pretty much it. I'm so glad I convinced Rich to hold on to all the old baby stuff. I'm sure we'll discover other things here and there, but it's great that we have most everything we need.
After Babies R Us we went across the street to the Commons for lunch. We had such a lovely time eating Chinese fast food alone together and realized that this would be our last opportunity to do something like this for a very long time. At the end of our meal I opened my fortune cookie. It seemed like the perfect image to represent today and the perfect message at this time in our lives.
