whatever day it turns out to be will certainly be a day to remember.

lately, as i'm getting ready for bed, i think about the fact that in a few weeks i'll be getting two people ready for bed, and both of us will get our own pajamas. it's exciting and scary all at once, but i think mike and i can fake being grown-ups well enough that ninja won't really know it's all an act. or at least, it will take him a little while to figure it out, especially if i'm distracting him with toys and ticklings and stories and other things. that's my plan anyway. the trick will be getting the nieces and nephews not to give up our secret - i'm pretty sure they're aware of the fact that we're not really all that mature.

my co-workers threw me a surprise shower at work today. i sorta had a feeling something was up, but didn't want to say anything to ruin their hard work. they're so sweet, and ninja is one lucky little guy to get so much love! i'm going to have to think of something special to do for those who made me feel so loved, and who made my face about as red as can be!

we tried to find something "go bucks" that was small enough and warm enough for ninja to come home in, but didn't have too much success (the pjs we have are size 6M). so i decided to go ahead and pack this warm little sleeper from aunt angie. i'm also packing a onesie (from aunt tiffany and uncle eric), a hat, socks, and little mittens to layer underneath, depending on how cold it is that day. we also bought a soft, fluffy blanket to put over him in the car on the way home (if i can stop snuggling it myself). i'm basically packed for the hospital now, which should guarantee that ninja will NOT get here early.

today is the day to break out my new "fold a day" origami calendar. this was a christmas present from mike, and i have been patiently waiting for the new year to break it out.
last night we rang in the new year in low-key style over at doug and karen's house, watching football and hanging out. i had a celebratory bottle of cream soda and a pizzelle or two. at midnight we broke out a bottle of sparkling grape juice and clinked in 2009 with our silly glasses on. today i'm working on my list for the new year, including packing my hospital bag, getting things for ninja (bedding, clothing) washed and put away, and finding homes for all the new toys we got for christmas.
