Out of Contact...

It's been a while since my last post. I guess you can say that I've been a little preoccupied with the holidays, family and trying to get ready for my daughter's arrival. We had a terrible stomach bug hit our house... Yuck! It got my 3 year old first, followed by my hubby and 1 year old. Knock on wood, my 8 year old and I survived it's wrath! Thank goodness.

My mommy threw me a Baby Shower this past Saturday and it was wonderful. She had it at our church's Fellowship Hall and it was so nice to be surrounded by family and friends. My daughter received such adorable gifts, from beautiful blankets to outfits. I went from having zero girly items to a closet full of clothes for her. It was such a blessing! I'm very grateful.

After church on Sunday, my mommy went with me to buy her bedding, extra sheets, cubbies and fabric drawers for her closet. She was a great help to me!

I washed all of her bedding and some clothing, bought her crib mattress and made her bed yesterday. My mommy even stopped by and took the majority of her clothes home to help me wash all of them. Isn't she the best!

All I have left to do now is go buy baby hangers because the ones we had left over (a ton!) were sent to storage and send out my "thank you" cards to everyone that attended my shower. I'm running out of time! Mia will be here sooner rather than later. I started getting some Braxton Hicks the night-before-last and I have what my Nurse Practitioner says will be my last prenatal visit tomorrow. All of my children have come earlier than their due dates. My last baby came almost 3 weeks early! My children's great-grandmother in Virginia predicts that I'll have my daughter on December 13th, so we'll see!

Enjoy the rest of your week and stay tuned for the post on our newest arrival... ;)
