I guess I’m not so good at math

Based on the timeframes from my agency, I ballparked Devin’s arrival for early November. Well, I was off. Good for us — Devin’s coming home eight days from now. He’ll be jetting from Seoul to Tokyo to Detroit on October 19th! So now we’re scrambling around the house, trying to cover our butts in the baby-needs department.

We got a ton of stuff at the shower on Saturday (thanks to everyone — it was so much fun). Yet there’s still a lot more left. Thermometers, formula, diapers, sheets, blankets, feeding miscellany…you get the picture. Scott had to shop his little heart out tonight. Not an easy task for him at all. We do have one more shower this week. This one will feature at least a glass of wine so I’m sure I’ll enjoy it.

As for the time between now and next Tuesday, friends and family can enjoy the idea of Lori and Scott racing crazily around the house trying to get it all in order. It’s a pretty funny spectacle, I can assure you!

  1. Lori, I can’t express in words how happy I am for you, and my mom is too. She wanted me to tell you that she knows what you’re going through, and this will probably be the hardest week of all for you, and not to worry about getting all the stuff, you can figure that out later. Next Tuesday you will have your SON!!!! (sob, sob)

  2. Shopping…BAAAAAAD!!!!


    Thanks again for your offer to babysit when we are on our three-month tour of Europe. That is very kind.

  3. Wonderful! You soon get to hug and kiss him. Life is becoming a new adventure. I am so happy for you both!!!!

  4. NEXT TUESDAY?!?!? Wow – you and Scott must be totally thrilled…and a little nervous?? Don’t worry though, everything will fall into place.
    I’m sorry we’ll miss you at bookclub but I am most excited for you and the new adventure you are about to have. Best of luck to you all! You’ll love being parents.

  5. Patti and Lynne: Thanks!

    Molly: You’re right on the mark. We’re very excited…but I’m definitely nervous too. Although I guess that’s common for first-time parents. At least I hope so!

  6. That is great news! Yes, excited and nervous go together as the feelings new parents go through. It will feel awkward at first but you know instinctively what is right for you and go with it. I’ll be checking for updates though you’ll probably be busier than ever. Won’t it feel great to finally have him? Cheers!
