We are scheduled for a C-section 5 weeks from tomorrow. As long as Lilly cooperates (I've been having contractions....been to the hospital once and got sent home), we are scheduled on October 8th at 6:00pm. My principal is scheduled for one two hours earlier and my classroom next door neighbor (a 2nd grade teacher) is scheduled 2 days later....crazy! I'm very, very ready for the day to come. The discomfort has definately come. Not to mention, my maternity clothes seem to be the size of pre-pregnancy clothes and the only shoes I can wear are my black Old Navy flip-flops. Fun! With all complaining aside, I am so thankful to be pregnant and to have been able to have this experience. I'm just ready to hold our little girl now.
I've been trying to finish up the nursery this weekend. We still have a few things to do, but it's basically just decorating (I still need a crib dust ruffle, a tea set to go on top of my quilt rack, an area rug for the floor, and some things for the walls. Other than that, I feel like we're ready. We've installed the car seat, diapers are in the diaper basket, she has PLENTY of clothes, and all the details that we're supposed to have prepared (probably some other not so important things as well....since I seem to be OCD!). Now I just need to focus on getting my kiddos at school ready for our sub.
My grandma has made us a baby quilt, a bumper, curtains, and the cutest little burp clothes you've ever seen! Enjoy the pictures!

The dresser....I need to jazz up these walls.
Chris said he is jealous....she has a walk-in closet full of clothes, and he only has a little section of ours with a limited wardrobe...poor baby. :)
Can you get enough pink?
Lilly is all packed for the hospital....now to get Mommy ready!
The quilt Grandma made....I love it!
