What a great day!

We had a great 4th of July. It started when I woke up at 8:00 and the nursery was painted!! Chris had gotten up at 6:30 and put the first coat on. After breakfast he put the 2nd coat on. I really love it! It's a bright, fun color:



The weather wasn't looking good so we went to the movies (where I devoured a bag of popcorn!) and saw Hancock. It was pretty funny. Then we went over to the in-laws and hung out by the pool. That's where we got some exciting news!! Cathy really wants to babysit. I am so relieved. I had a very good/reliable sitter in mind for daycare, but NOTHING could beat my mother in law taking care of Baby Burns. She is the most amazing person, very patient and easy going...the baby is going to be very lucky with her! And I think it will make going back to work much easier on me knowing that someone I love is with the baby while I can't be. 

She also ordered the crib today! It should be here in just a few days. Our dresser came in just 4 days and I can't wait to start putting it together. We are on the ball! I'm happy to be getting all this done while I have the time and energy.   

So overall it was a fantastic day. Happy 4th to everyone!

Awww....so excited! My MIL will watch little lamb too--isn't it going to be great? After a while we'll probably put her in daycare but I didn't want to do that before she can talk and start walking. Daycare's great but not for when they're really little--imo anyways!
