Today we took the plunge and bought some high-quality-yet-extremely-overpriced-because-it-is-imported-from-South-Africa baby furniture, specifically a crib and a changing table, and they will be delivered tomorrow or Monday. This is what we bought:
I also went to a UN spouse club meeting today for the first time since last March. All of the women in the club are in agreement with the majority of our blog poll-takers so far in that they are convinced that Simba is a boy (there are several women in the club from Indonesia, India, and Malaysia and apparently these women have extremely accurate instincts about these matters). I am trying once again to initiate a book club with the group, which may not be the smartest undertaking just before having a baby, but in the meantime I am doing a lot of reading so I figured there is no harm in trying again.
Anyway, it is good news that we are one step closer to having an official baby nursery in our house, and of course our surprise find last weekend of a rocking chair makes it even better. My increasing nesting instincts are very pleased.
