I've been busy getting things ready for this baby that will be coming soon. As of today I am *almost* 36 weeks and considering that both of my girls came 1 and 2 weeks early, I could technically have this little one any time! I am all the things you'd expect to be feeling at this point before a new baby comes...excited, nervous, uncomfortable, scared, hopeful. You name it, I'm feelin' it. Here's a little peek at her closet...a good mix of old and new baby clothes. I am amazed at the amount of baby clothing we have accumulated in this house over the past 4 years! I am super sentimental, so I'm very excited for the baby to wear some of the same little outfits and sleepers that both of her big sisters wore and to be cuddled in the same blankets that we cuddled the "big girls" in. (I'm pretty sure we'll be referring to Payton and Gabby as the "big girls" once the baby comes!) And pink and brown are most definatley a popular color combo this season! It seems that almost everything new I've bought is pink and brown. Funny!
Anyways, there's still lots to do before we meet our newest little girl. Her room is all painted and ready to be decorated...my mom will be sewing her bedding and curtains and then I'll be able to work on all the finishing touches. Of course I want the room to be totally "done" before she comes but we'll see...I'll do as much as I can do. I can't wait to share!
Today has turned out to be a busy day. It started off with cleaning up puke in about 6 different locations around the house at 7 o'clock this morning and since then we've done lunch, play-doh, walmart and a little mini birthday party at Payton's friends house this afternoon. Whew! And my house is a disaster and I have 2 new magazines that are begging to be read. AAahhh! What to do? Oh, and top of all of that Graham is out of town till tomorrow night working so I am on my own. For some reason that always makes things a little bit more unbearable, hey? Oh, well...I suppose I'll survive!
Okay, off to start on some of that cleaning that needs to be done.
