I am feeling ready.. The nesting instinct is just amazing! I have been running full steam ahead the last week or so, and yesterday got things together enough that I feel truly ready for labor to commence.
If you can believe it, we have names picked out! You will have to wait a bit longer to hear what it is, but I am hoping not much longer:-)
Our twelfth anniversary is on September 20th, and Susanna's fifth birthday is on the 27th. Baby's due date is the 24th, and while I would prefer he/she has their own date... I wouldn't hold off just for that! There are a number of other September dates we could aim for though: Mom and Dad's anniversary (today!! - Hey, that sounds good to me!), Uncle Ben-the-policeman's birthday on the 21st, my moms birthday on the 22nd...
I'll be posting more pictures of this and that, and some thoughts as my time draws near. This picture was MY sweet little yard sale find from last weeks excursion (50 cents). It just seemed right for this season, and I hoped there might be a perfect place to hang it near the baby supplies or something. For now I've been enjoying it by my desk.
When I thought of being a mom, I never dreamed of THIS! ~Five heart melting smiles ~never getting tired of midnight feedings ~having all the answers ~not minding dirty faces ~enjoying watching the boys eat! ~falling in love with pigtails ~appreciating overalls ~appreciating a washing machine! ~wanting to do everything better ~falling in love a million times
