Well the countdown is on!
I am being very patient and am rather curious about how and when labour will start and what our birth story will be. Our neighbours have been stopping Steve to ask if we've had our baby...soon he tells them. Steve is excited, he is so attentive to me and the Baby P and we finally settled on names for the baby. We'll keep those under wraps until baby arrives. It's like the Witness Protection Program around here! Haha. We are both happy we don't know the sex of our baby. The curiosity alone is going to make me work at labour!
I get a kick out of my belly button!
The baby dropped last Thursday as you can see.
This is the baby's change station in our bedroom. Set up on my Grandma Dodie's Dresser.
Baby P's Co-sleeper - it aligns with our bed.
Baby's layette has found a spot in our room too!
HOW DO I FEEL?
I have experienced a HUGE ENERGY BOOST in the past three days. Every woman I talk to who has had a baby says ... that's the sign the baby is coming soon! I have been taking advantage of this energy by cleaning the house, dusting and vacuuming before baby P's grandparents get here to visit, I raked all the leaves out of the back yard (you're off the hook for leaf removal Sue) and today I am heading out to add compost to our gardens and plant our veggies and flowers from seed.
The tulips and daffodils I planted in the Fall for baby P's spring arrival are blooming this week as is our Dogwood. The Azaleas and Rhododendrons are just beginning to pop pink buds. The Mourning Doves have made a nest in the Holly Tree just outside our kitchen window, two fat copulating bumblebees nearly flew into my head yesterday .... new life is all around us. Soon our new baby boy or girl will be here. We can hardly wait!
