Our little girl

Only 42 more days (and hopefully less) till we get to meet her!
Two weeks from tomorrow and she can come out any time.
The consensus is that she looks like Luke, but I can't tell from a sonogram.
I do think she's cute though. And check out those cheeks!

I suppose it's time

It's been quite a while since I posted anything. Not much is new.

We're still growing. Not as rapidly as before though, thankfully. I had a sonogram last week and when I actually remember to send my pics with Luke to scan them, I'll post them. They're pretty cute. She's got a little pug nose and chubby cheeks. And she has HAIR!! (Coming from someone who was bald for the first few years of her life, and hasn't been able to grow much hair since, hair on my baby is kind of a novelty.) As of last Friday, she weighed 3lb 13oz.

Only 49 days left!

I've been sewing a lot. The crib bedding is finally finished, the ties for the curtains sewn, and now I'm about 1/2 through recovering the glider chair. I'll be very excited when that is done.

I also sleep/rest a lot. Energy and motivation are seriously lacking. When I sit down, typically my only motivation to get up is because my back starts hurting. Going up (or down) the stairs makes me short of breath. In short, I feel pregnant. :)

I think it's begun.

On the way home from Michigan last weekend, I started to panic a little bit.
"Honey, we only have 11 weeks till Bridget is born! I had all these things I wanted to get done!"

And 5 minutes later:
"Honey, we don't even have any baby things! No crib mattress or bedding, a diaper bag, clothes, toys, diapers, a bouncy seat or a swing!"

So I made a list right then and there of all those things I wanted/need to get done. And that list includes cleaning out nearly every closet, drawer, and cabinet in the whole house.

Yes, this is me...the person who has no problem with shoving everything into a closet as long as I can shut the door and the house looks clean.

It's a little weird to have this overwhelming urge to clean out and organize, but I'll be making the most of it!
