We're excited!

Well, I am pretty sure my water broke this afternoon, but not a gush, just a trickle.. and I am not really having what I expect contractions to feel like, so it may still be a day or so until anything eventful! Hopefully we will get a good amount of sleep tonight and be able to head in tomorrow morning or afternoon.. Sleep.. really?? My Little Girl is Coming!!!
So far though, I couldn't ask for any more of a perfect situation.. My Mom arrives tomorrow afternoon, my friend who is a doula is available tomorrow to help me (& Ben) through this adventure & it is Easter.. Perfect!
Keep us in your prayers!

New Dresser

This is Kai's dresser that Ben just finished. A neighbor so kindly donated it to us and we thought we would have some fun with it. I think it turned out awesome & am so glad I have a handy hubby who happens to love color! :)

I am dying to get LG's room set up, but have to wait at least until this summer.. I don't want to have 2 cribs and for now Kai is still content to be in one - I'm counting my blessings every morning! All the nursery furniture is white, which will be sooo cute with the bedding we got for her, but for now, she'll just be in our room in a pack-n-play until I can't take it anymore :)

8 Days out..

I am still feeling pretty good, but definitely b-i-g and sluggish. Kai is just so much fun and adorable these days and I feel badly that am having a hard time getting on the floor to play.. actually it is the getting up part that I struggle with and the moving around actively once I am down.. I just want to lay down and watch him, but that isn't quite enough for our little 19mo old :)

I took him to the play area at the mall today so he could run around and the Easter bunny happen to take a stroll through all the kids while we were there. It was his first time ever seeing a large costumed character, he was curious enough to follow and look, but stayed a few feet away and just watched while other kids hugged and high fived the giant bunny. No crying though and after 2 minutes he wasn't interested anymore - the slide is much more his style.

Last night I packed my bag for the hospital and made a list for Ben of all the last minute things I think I'll need. We are still struggling on the name, but otherwise, I think both of us are ready for little girl to make her appearance. I am finally getting to that point, the get!this!baby!out! point.. I do think I will make it until my due date & am hoping for the 12 or 13th so my Mom can be here, but don't really want to go much beyond that :) I am already feeling like she may be too big for me to push out - HA!
