All Things Baby

I am now 38 weeks pregnant. When the baby is coming and how much longer we have to wait to meet her is pretty much all consuming on my mind these days. I am trying to keep the house cleaned up now that the rush of the holidays are over. So I have a lot of time on my hands now to just wait.

Here are some belly pictures from last week. Everyone I see tells me how small they think I look for being as far along as I am, but let me tell you, I feel huge!

37 weeks

This is one of my favorite pictures. I had seen a lot of these after I had Thomas and knew I wanted one like it whenever I got pregnant again.

Here is Thomas helping to paint the baby's room. He actually did pretty good trying to help us. The room is a really bright orange that matches the bedding that I am making for her room. It has taken a little getting used to, but I think it is going to be really nice when the room is completed.

This is the bed skirt I sewed for the crib. I still need to make a sheet, bumper and matching window valance, but I am not sure if I am going to work on them before she gets here or not.

I am having a really hard time focusing on much else these days. I am so anxious to meet her. We finally decided on a name - Olivia Louise. Louise is after both my middle name and my mom's middle name. I am sort of hoping she comes on my mom's birthday, which is the 21st, but I am getting really impatient. I know I potentially have two weeks or more to go. These last couple of weeks just seem to creep and crawl by. Plus I am anxious to see how this birth will be different from Thomas' birth. It is all so exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time!
