So today, I got a VERY large package at my front door! Guess what it was?

I'll give you a hint... I talked about needing one of these in this, this, and this post on my blog. After taking all of your comments and suggestions into consideration, I half pipe-dreaming-ly registered for it at Target. Since my wonderful friend Marsha is giving me a car seat and 2 bases, and I know it is pink and brown I decided that  this one would fit our needs best, and crossed my fingers hoping for a miracle--that someone I know has an extra $224 plus tax that they wanted to spend on this desperately needed gift. A great online friend of mine named Scott (but I know him as potato boyo) from plurk said he wanted to contribute to my baby needs. I gave him my registry link and now a week later, its here! Is the anticipation killing you because you didn't click on any of the 4 links in this paragraph?

So there it is. Beautiful isn't it? I am so happy :) We also ordered my baby shower invitations. If any of you would like to be invited, email me your address and I will mail you one.. but if you just want to see what it looks like, here it is... some of the details have been removed for internet privacy reasons, etcetera :) Or, I can send you a web invite via FB private events.

Also, do you remember that giveaway I told you all you should enter? Well, EVERYONE who entered won, which means you MISSED OUT for not entering... and also means, that I WON!!! What a great day for things falling from the sky.

Other noteworthy events of this week: I got the pack and play set up in my bedroom (you can see it here), which means I cleared enough room in there for it, and also got Joe to move in Eloise's dresser, and went through all the hand-me-downs I have received, organized them by size and put'em in her drawers. I don't have a whole lot of "newborn" sized stuff, but am not sure how long they really stay in that size anyway.. I have a lot more 0-3 and tons more 3-6. My Registry is not very big, but I am going to definitely welcome DIAPER contributions at my Shower.. since we definitely will need those!

Also, I lost my cell phone on Sunday. I cannot lie, I really didn't like that phone, but either way, I looked high and low, even cleaned in a dither to find it (and nest for Eloise) but to no avail. But Joe came home and surprised me with a new phone on Tuesday, and I love it. We are one great big Apple family now.

My last and biggest piece of news is that my Scarlett Paige FINALLY pooped and peed in the toilet FOR THE FIRST TIME today!!! Yes, I almost didn't believe it... but she likes to play with my new phone, and I downloaded a Super Why app, so I told her, "just sit on the potty and play super why until you go peepee in the potty." I went back into the living room (we have considered maybe she prefers to go potty in private which is why we have not had any success) and soon she came out, and announced, "I went poop in the potty!" Half not believing her, I walked in there, "well let me see" and sure enough, pee and poo! Joe brought her home a Rolos candy bar as a treat.She is wearing panties, and is trying to get acclimated to "snuggies" and how to pull them out by herself when they happen.
