Before I get too far into the post at hand, I wanted to take an opportunity to mention how much fun our vacation was last week. We went to Disney World as a family (mom, dad, Larisa, Trevor, Rebekah and I) for 6 days. It was the first time in a while we’ve gone as a family and the first time ever that we (as a family) stayed on site in one of the Disney resorts. It was a really fun and relaxing time… and yes, Disney does everything right!
So on to the post as titled – “It’s Getting Real.” The day after we got back from vacation (Tuesday) Rebekah had another doctor’s appointment… we spent more time waiting for the doctor (45-60 minutes behind) than we did in his office. And some wonder why I don’t exactly frequent the doctor’s office myself (still haven’t gotten a primary since they kicked me out of the pediatrician’s office). Once we did get to see the doctor, he asked some questions, answered some of Rebekah’s questions and even asked me if there were any questions that I had.
The coolest part of the visit was getting to hear the baby’s heartbeat. It took a minute or so to find, which he says is normal this early, and of course Rebekah had to laugh just as he found it. So Baby Hussak is alive and
On Friday, we went to a baby/infant consignment sale on the recommendation of the family Rebekah nannies for (you can see their blog, Six Small Hands, here). There was a ton of clothes that we chose not to take advantage of being we don’t know the sex of the baby yet, but we did get a really nice changing table, walker and some fabric books, bath toys, etc. Great prices, great quality and great value! Thanks Melisa!!
Today, after some yard work, laundry, and other stuff around the house, Rebekah and I went to Babies R Us to get started on picking out a theme for the nursery. I think we had previously settled on a Pooh Bear theme, but of course there are at least 6-8 to pick between. There are few few cute ones, but but we need some help deciding… here comes the interactive part of the blog… if you could help us by taking a look at the following themes and giving some feedback in the comments section, it would be greatly appreciated.

While we were at Babies R Us, we decided to start our registry… pretty much so that we could put some things on we wanted to remember later, or in the case of strollers, we wanted to read some reviews on etc. It’s not complete, and there are some duplicate items, but if you want to take a look and provide any input, here’s the link: http://bit.ly/dtg4iv
Thanks for all your thoughts, prayers, and well-wishes. We are getting more and more excited with each passing day, week and month.
