Today marks 36 weeks for me and Baby. According to the ultrasounds we've had, and the way the baby is measuring, they have said all along I'm measuring about a week further along. So today could mark 37 weeks. And you know what? I hope they're right! As we finished up birthing classes, and we're putting the finishing touches on the nursery, and getting the car seat in the car, and washing all the baby clothes...it's all becoming very real. And I cannot wait to meet this Baby. I know I say it every time, but the closer we get, the more I want to meet this person! As the picture clearly reflects, my belly is a belly of a woman that is very pregnant. I feel it and look it. Why have I not posted any other pregnant pictures besides that of my belly, you ask? Trust me...you don't want to see them. Let's just say, the equation of 36 weeks pregnant + hot muggy summer weather = one swollen mama :) When I look down at my feet, which I can only describe as sausages, I remind myself to laugh and say "this is all worth it." Why? Because it is! If having to retain water and swell up like a balloon is part of bringing this most precious and adorable Baby into the world, then I say, bring on the swelling :) To my beautiful, energetic, adorable Baby: I love you I love you I love you.
So after the last post, all of you wrote back with the same opinion: pick the blue! And I couldn't be happier about that, because we did decide to go with the blue. And I'm so glad. It's beautiful! So now that we've repainted (well Nick painted, not me) we were able to get the crib up and the bedding washed and ready to go. So I thought I would give you a little peak at the nursery. We don't have the dresser up yet, but I thought you'd like to see how the nursery is progressing. Once it's all set up, I'll show you before and after pictures too! But for right now...here are a few pictures to wet your appetites!
