30 days... and counting!!!

Today, I have officially 30 days until my due date -- Lucy, this means you need to start packing your bags! :) We are getting very excited for her arrival, especially now that my sister's baby, Sallie was born this past weekend. She was 7 lbs. 15 oz. and 20 inches long -- such a tiny, precious baby! She looks just like Nathan did, just with blonder hair and it's a little more curly. Nathan was so sweet to his little sister when he first saw her. He immediately wanted to hold her and kiss her and when she would cry, he would say "It's okay, Sallie. It's okay. I'm here!" He is going to be such a caring big brother. I wish I would have had a big brother -- she is so lucky to not only have one, but have a GREAT one!

We ate lunch at MaMa & Pop's house today since they were keeping Macie & Mollie while Kacie worked today. It's always such a nice treat for me to get to go over there for lunch, not onlyh for the good food but because I get to see Chris for just a little bit -- anytime I get to see him, it makes my heart smile! I really have the best husband in the world!! Macie's getting so much more talkative and when you ask her who is in my belly she says "Moosie" -- I guess she can't say her "L's" yet? Mollie's been pretty fussy lately...she's teething pretty heavily. It's so unlike her to be fussy though -- she's usually the happiest baby on the block!

Chris & I had our 35 week appointment today. They did the strep test and asked if we had any questions, and then we were out of there. We'll find out next week if I passed or not. He also said he may start checking me for progression next week, but he may wait until the week after. It really stinks driving 45 minutes over there for such short appointments, but delivering at The Medical Center with this group of doctors is worth it!! They are all so nice and I've really enjoyed my experience with them so far (as much as you can enjoy an OB-GYN, I guess... ha!)

I've just this past week started feeling VERY pregnant. I've enjoyed this pregnancy and feel as though I've had it pretty easy, but my energy levels have dropped tremendously and I'm starting to ache all over from just any little activity. I have started having to sleep in my La-Z-Boy recliner. I sleep much longer stretches and much more soundly. Christopher very sweetly sleeps in here on his recliner with me. He said last night that he plans on doing that every night that I have to, no matter if it's every night until Lucy gets here. He says Lucy is worth all of the sacrifice and knows that I am sacrificing so much so that he's just doing his part! :) Such a sweet husband!

Thank goodness everything is ready for her so I don't have to be worrying about doing that now. Her room is complete. We've had it painted and pretty much arranged the way it's going to be for a long while now. Just recently, we've added a chest of drawers to the closet and a glider in one corner, causing us to have to do a slight rearrangement. Everything is now perfect! Last week, I washed all of her clothes and got out the Newborn & 0-3 month clothes and washed them, as well as her sheets and the sheets and comforter that is going on the bed in there. I then organized them in the closet the way I wanted them, or for now, think they should go. I also made a last minute trip to Babies R Us to get a diaper caddy for the changing table to hold the wipes and extra diapers and such and some extra parts for the breast pump. Unfortunately, the monitor we ordered from this one website was taking forever to come in -- nearly two months! -- so we cancelled the order and are having to get Memaw pick it up for us from Babies R Us and bring it to Milledgeville next time she visits.

After we left the appointment and got back in town, Chris & I headed to Flooring America to pick out some flooring for Lucy's/the guest bathroom. We couldn't decide between two colors and just picked one we thought would work the best. Now that it's in there, I can't make up my mind if I like it or not, so Cindy is coming over to help make the decision. She's so good at decorating.

I made pork chops for dinner -- such a yummy meal! Chris is cooking green beans and corn for sides (our usual). And, now I'm resting for the rest of the evening!
