Guess the Birthday!

So, Steve and I are putting together a poll to guess when our daughter will be born. Just add a comment and the winner will get the satisfaction of being the best guesser.

Her official due date is Oct. 8th. Some other information in case it might sway you: yesterday I had a 36 week check up and my doctor said she looked like she was at 37 weeks 4 days and I was 36 weeks 3 days. So, for whatever that's worth.

Happy guessing!

Nesting Part 1

So when you get to the last few weeks of pregnancy you start to get this question a lot, "So do you have everything ready for the baby?" Mostly, I don't really know what they're talking about because you can't really be ready to bring another human being into this world, as much as we like to try. But, I understand where they're going with the question. They want to know if the "nursery" is done. My answer is no. Up until this weekend our "nursery" was yet to be purchased or was in the gift packaging it was given to me in. I wish I had a picture of the before.

My family came up from San Antonio to help with baby stuff. When my dad saw the area we planned on putting baby stuff he said, "you plan on fitting a baby in here?" Yes, and now it looks like we can.

This is how things look now

We purchased the changing table that in the corner from a consignment sale. We also purchased a ton of other stuff from the same said sale, including a pak 'n play that's not in the picture. We have her clothes organized into baskets and we bought 2 large boxes of diapers. So, now if I go into labor there will be a place for her to sleep and a place to change her diaper and I will be able to clothe her without rummaging through boxes.

Thank you mom, dad, Bradley and Peter for helping me start to nest.
