Well Hello Monday!

Monday, January 9, 2012

Is it just me, or did this weekend just fly by at warp speed? I think my body was getting quite used to the 3 or 4 day holiday work week, and now that it's back to the normal daily grind, I guess I better get my booty in gear, too.
This weekend should be labeled "Jeff + Natasha Time". Friday night, we went to dinner to detox from the week's craziness and then settled in early...when I say early, I mean we were home by 7:15--our former selves wouldn't have had reservations until at least 8PM on Friday nights ;).
Saturday morning, we got up and headed to Baptist Hospital to begin our childbirth/infant care classes that we had registered for...yippee!! See below for more details. That night, we had Meg and Aaron over for a relaxing evening at home...treating ourselves to pizza, watching countless episodes of Shameless {which is hilarious!}, and catching up with great friends. 
Sunday, it was back to baby class to finish up... As a recap, we had no idea what to expect, but after 2 days of nonstop "baby talk", we walked away feeling excited, a little less overwhelmed, and a lot more knowledgeable about what to expect during labor, childbirth, postpartum, and everything associated with taking care of a newborn. We took a tour the labor and delivery floor where we'll be staying which made the whole process seem all the more real. For anyone pregnant, absolutely sign up for these classes--they were extremely helpful and a lot more fun than Jeff and I expected, too.

So now it's Monday, and we're back in the swing of things. I have to forego meeting up with friends tonight to watch the BCS National Championship game in exchange of an afternoon dentist appointment and Junior League meeting, but I have to admit that I'll be cheering for Alabama today...any reason to root against Les Miles is enough reason for me-- Roll Tide!

Lots of fun activities this week, too--bunco with the girls tomorrow night, dinner with Jeff and his work colleagues to celebrate his big sales win Wednesday, my 30-week appointment on Thursday, and then my first baby shower on Sunday...happy week indeed! ;)

  5. Sooo, I have been curious about those classes and trying to figure out whether Trey and will take them or not(we will deliver at Baptist too). Some friends say yes, some say not necessary....and I am back and forth....but you think it helped you guys feel more prepared?! Which ones did you take?

  10. You're a busy bee! I'm so happy for you! I'm a new aunt -- I was in the delivery room with my sister -- and it was an amazing experience! She didn't take any classes -- you are smart to do so and be prepared! All the best!
