Well, I totally missed posting for #8, oops! Today is our 9th month of waiting for Emily. Several times a week people ask me how long we have waited and how much longer we have to wait. I enjoy answering because I get to chat about Emily which makes my heart happy. Usually after I tell people we will probably be waiting 30+ more months they get a look of horror upon their faces but I remind them of the incredible nursery Emily is going to have when she gets to us. Since I have already started collecting and have much longer than most moms I will be ready. My favorite is to buy things that are personalized. I have always been a big fan of anything with my name or initials on it so I am starting with Emily early. I remember when I was in elementary school there was a store in El Paso called "It's Personal". It was one of my favorite places to go. I remember having hair clips with my name on them, oh so fun!
For our 9th month of waiting though I skipped the gift for Emily or the nursery and gave myself one. I joined the Waco Y with a friend from school. I have been needing to get myself in gear for awhile and she was an encouragement to do so. For our first day we thought we would start with something light, Beginners Turbo Kickboxing. Ummmm, let's just say I hope I can walk tomorrow! I can't imagine how the regular class is, yikes! Cari, it might take me a few years to join you in that class :)
