I'm officially letting the world know that I'm done with being pregnant and ready for this baby to come!!!
I am in no way proud of this picture but it's one of those things I felt obliged to have done before this baby comes. I remember when I was expecting my first I excitedly took a picture of my growing belly every month. I think this is the first official "bump picture" that I've taken this time!
I think in true baby#4 fashion our focus has been on a million things other than actual baby prep (like all those great house projects). I finally got around to setting up baby equipment and tried to remember what to pack in a hospital bag this past week. Wrote instructions for Grandmas. Made arrangements with schools. And generally did all the prep work that I normally would have done 3 or 4 weeks ago.
The one area that we have completely failed at is being prepared with a name for this little lady! We've always had our kids pretty much named by 20 weeks into the pregnancy. Not this time. We've spent more time pouring over books and websites and negotiating favorites than ever before. And we don't feel like we're too much closer than we were 9 months ago. Hopefully something magical happens and this baby comes with a name stamped on her forehead to help her slacker parents out a little!
Now to enter the days of OCD when there's no real goals or to do lists but the house always has to be clean...the laundry caught up...every dish done...just in case!
Until there's news...I'm over and out...
