1/10/13 – 1/16/13

This week I took my last flight/trip before baby B {and for a while} to NYC and spent a few days enjoying the city that I love (and miss!) with Craig. I had a great time visiting with some of my Duke girls, who I also miss dearly.

We met with our baby nurse who will be coming from NYC {baby nurses don’t exist the same way in NC like they do in Manhattan, and believe it or not – it’s actually cheaper to have one come from NYC rather than hire one from an agency in NC!} Her name is Gale, and she’s originally from Trinidad. I loved when she asked us, “do you know anything about taking care of babies?”, in which we responded “no, not at all” and she excitedly responded “oh good, you’re the best kind, I can’t wait to teach you everything!” We. can’t. wait. either.
Gale will be living with us for a few months once baby Becher is born, and since we aren’t able to have my mom here to help us out, we feel so fortunate to be able to have her here with us {as well as my mother-in-law and step-mom [for a few days!]}, to teach us EVERYTHING!

Also this week, we received a special delivery from Pottery Barn Kids:
