That is how I am starting to feel anyway. The reality of having a baby seems to be getting further and further away. I know my widget (floating baby) is missing from my sidebar, but, I am still not to my due date (Due Feb 2nd) So, I guess I am being a little hasty, but, I had high hopes! After all, Wade was 10 days early and this baby is BIG and ready to come on out. She has been working on it for a while... (contractions everyday that never get close enough to time but are persistent enough to a-drive me crazy, b-make it so I can't sleep and c- make me feel the need to get everything "ready" to leave the house d-the answer is all of the above)
So, I have now cleaned my house for the 3rd time.. Yes, the THIRD TIME. All the bathrooms all the floors, dusting and all the laundry.. for the LOVE, CAN'T I JUST GO INTO LABOR?
I have not had a full nights sleep in two weeks.. Between having to go to the bathroom (every HOUR last night) or having persistent contractions that are JUST uncomfortable to keep me up. And now, I am so run down, that I have a dirty rotten head cold. No amount of Emergen "C" has been able to knock this puppy outta the park.. so, here I am... head cold and all.. still waiting.
I guess it has given me time to be more "prepared" maybe little "K" just was waiting until I finished her Initial for her room.
I got one of those paper mache letters from Joanne's and covered it with the fabric from her valance and soon to be dust ruffle.. Of course that is not done! It probably won't be until I officially move her in.. After all, Wade is inhabiting her room right now, and it is unclear as to when that transition will take place.
I also got her diaper bag ready. Is this not the CUTEST DIAPER BAG? Made by my one and only MIL quilter extraordinare! (Really she is) I got to pick out the fabric and VOILA, she delivered it on her last visit. SO cute, and just what I needed to carry K's stuff in.
Here is her bag all ready to go.. I guess all I need to do now is get her an invitation!!! I have head flower: CHECK! Go home outfit: CHECK! Booties from my SIL: CHECK! Super YUMMY ORGANIC SWADDLING BLANKIE from the sweet blogger Kelly. (She is so thoughtful, seriously, we have never even met in person!) She checked out my registry and SURPRISE! It showed up on my door step. Seriously sweet. The bag has a few other items. Chargers, Cameras, etc.
Now, ALL WE NEED IS BABY.
This belle is ready for the BALL! Clean bathrooms AND ALL! So, come on little baby.. come on out!
OH! I have given you a little Poll to entertain yourselves (some of you are checking my blog just to see if I have gone into labor yet.. checking my tweets... You are lovely, thank you for being excited for me) so, now, when you come to visit and find that I am STILL HERE, at least now you can VOTE... (You might as well have something to do while you are here, right? ) ENJOY!
