nesting and waiting......

waiting and nesting.


Actually, I'm done with the nesting.

I'm ready to get this party started!

The baby's room is ready. I think I have everything I need. I've had my carpets cleaned & windows washed & couches cleaned & lots of closets & cupboards organized, and if I could, I would wipe down every inch of my house with those Clorox disinfecting wipes (I love them!).
I got a fresh delivery pedicure yesterday & did a big Costco stock-up trip.
And I've been trying to give each of my kids some quality one-on-one time before they get ignored for a while.


But the nostalgic (and hormonal) side of me is really trying to soak this in & burn it into my memory.

There are parts of pregnancy that I love & this is such a bittersweet feeling to be done with......forever.......the amazing experience of feeling your baby squirming & kicking inside of you, or the exciting anticipation waiting for labor to start & heading to the hospital with your diaper bag with a tiny little 'coming home' outfit in it......and bringing home a new little family member.

This is it.

48 hours til I'm induced.

I felt much the same way with my last pregnancy

I am planning on coming to Az in June. Can't wait to see you and the baby!

I've been meaning to ask about the shirt (the ice cream shirt) Marlee had on in the pictures when she was coloring Easter eggs. That looks familiar!?
