Yeah! We finally have the nursery all ready for Baby Lilly! (Except for the table topper I still need to hem). Hopefully she'll be joining us any day now!

Well, here I am at 38 weeks pregnant. Don't let my smile fool you...I'm not very happy. These doctors, they just toy with your emotions. One week they tell you "the baby is probably going to come early" the next week its "you need to start thinking about how long past your due date you want to go." Why would you say that to someone whose shoes are making puffy lines in her feet!? In case you haven't guessed, I had a doctors appointment this morning. It was not encouraging. That's ok though. When they told me the baby might come early I knew that she could still be late. So whatever happens happens. The good thing is we are a lot more ready for her to come than we were a couple of weeks ago. I even have our bags for the hospital packed. While the waiting game is no fun we are trying to enjoy our last few baby free days. One things for sure - they're going to include a lot more long walks and spicy foods!

To our new blog! I have great hopes that this one is going to be a little more user friendly. So for the real updates...I am 38 weeks today and we are making lots of progress on the baby front. Matt got lots of baby gear put together and he & Dakota took the stroller for a test drive around the kitchen. Slowly but surely the nursery is coming together. Hopefully by the end of the week it'll be picture ready. We have even kind of settled on a name but are going to wait until she gets here just to be sure. Sorry...no hints! I attempted to install the car seat but it was all wrong so that is next on the list. Pregnancy is still going well. I've had a few restless nights and my feet have started to swell but overall I'm doing good. As far as baby development goes it has pretty much been the same for the past couple of weeks. She is packing on the lbs - about 1/2 lb. a week and producing more surfactant - the stuff that keeps the air sacs in the lungs from sticking together once she starts breathing. The produce of the week is that she is as long as a leek. I'm pretty mad at the dr. who told me she would probably be early because we're starting to get impatient and so I'm sure she'll come late now. I think Matt is feeling more impatient than I am but that'll probably change the fatter my feet get. Yesterday some of the people Matt works with had a baby shower lunch at the Cheesecake Factory for him. It was lots of fun and we got some really cute things! Well, those are all the updates I can think of for now. Hopefully the next time I get so far behind will be because I'm having a baby!
