Once I get her dresser filled then I will tackle her closet. It's not to pretty right now. Thanks also for the suggestions to separate her clothes by size. I'm embarrassed to say that I have done that. The clothes in her closet are size 9 months to 12 - 18 months. I know, I am out of control :) A lot of the clothes are hand me downs though. I am never one to turn those down. I love baby clothes! Plus I have been buying cute baby stuff for others for years and it's now finally my turn :)
I will say though for you guys that are much earlier in the process, if you can control your self try and space buying your baby clothes out. The reason I say that now is because I am still seeing Lot's of cute stuff I want out there. Now I am having a hard time though cause I know she will never be able to wear everything so I can't justify buying anything else. (Unless of course it's really cute!)

I found this cute video on you tube. It shows a travel group shooting their red couch photo. Can you say ADORABLE? I love how the camera turns to record the paparazzi. I bumming because by the time I get to go over the White Swan will be closed for a facelift. Oh well.
Thank you also for all of your crossed fingers. My ac coil just needed to be unclogged and of course some freon. Thank goodness!

If your still with me on this oh so exciting post, I decided to move my other dresser into her room. So I'm painting it tonight. Now my stuff is stacked in my closet but my girl needs the dresser more then me. She definitely has more clothes then me.
By the way my shelf is still hanging!
Six more drawers for Abby's stuff! I'm so excited :) Once all of her clothes and accessories are put away then I will finish her closet. Then with the exception of a few little things her room will be done. Now I have to convince Quackers that this is really not her room....
Signs that my Niece made for Abby's door. Did I mention that it is currently 80 degrees in my house right now? My thermostat is set on 65. The air con people are coming tomorrow. Fingers crossed that I only need Freon.

The Cat's Diary
Day 983 of my captivity.
My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep my strength.
The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet. Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates my capabilities. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a "good little hunter" I am. Bastards!
There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of "allergies." I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.
Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow, but at the top of the stairs.
I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog gets special privileges. He is regularly released, and seems more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded.
The bird must be an informant. I observe him communicate with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe. For now!

Turns out they make their own light due to some sort of special cells in their belly. These cells produce a chemical and a enzyme that combine to make the light. What I found even more interesting was that when the lightning bug is flashing they are doing so to attract a mate. When the perfect mate is found she flashes back to signal that she's into the mate. They then due some heavy flashing between the two of them (I guess their flirting with each other?) before they actually mate. It's true I'm not making this up. I read it here.
Anyhow...... I really didn't have anything to post until I saw the lightning bug. It got me thinking. Spring sure did fly by fast. Now if only summer will do the same. No offense to all of you summer loving folks out there, I just really want time to fly so I can get my referral :)
