Things have been busy busy at our house. We are frantically getting ready to meet our little one. We have exactly one month left until she is scheduled to make her arrival.
A few weeks ago I was able to have a baby shower with friends and family. Sadly I didn't get any pictures, but I think I can track a few down. We are so grateful to the friends and family that came and spoiled our little girl rotten. Here is a picture of her nursery so far. I have everything put together and almost everything is ready to go. I have to put a few things on the walls, but I have no idea what I want to do yet. Oh well, I'm not too worried about that part.
I am also frantically trying to get my house as clean as I can before she comes. I am definitely in the nesting phase. I have been able to cut my hours down at work to 10 a week and it has been nice to have extra time to do things around the house and spend time with family. Especially since my swelling is in full force so I have to take breaks often. Otherwise I look like an elephant in my legs and feet. I have to keep telling myself that this has been the worst part of my pregnancy and I am blessed because it could have been much much worse. Still, I am excited to get back to my normal size and actually be able to see my ankles again.
Dru is working away out at MFC. He officially finished training a few weeks ago, but is waiting on the rest of his clearance to come through before he can actually get to work in his facility. His should be good to go in about a month. He has to have the highest clearance available so it takes some extra time.
We are anticipating the 4th of July Celebration (it's my favorite holiday). I am trying to focus on being excited for that so I don't keep thinking about how ready I am to meet this little girl. But I guess she will be here before we know it. It seems like just a few days ago I looked at the ticker on my blog and I had 100 days left, then only 50, now we are just about to 30. We could not be more thrilled and are excited to see what this little one will look like and how she will act. I can already tell you right now from the way she acts inside of my belly she is going to be like her daddy!
