So close...... yet not quite

Everything is starting to happen in our house. The UPS man has been here pretty much everyday with 2 more boxes expected on Monday. After that we will have everything we need and want for Baby A. Which is a good thing because my doctor let me know that she is "locked and loaded" and it could be any day now. I am hoping she holds out another 30 days, but who knows. Apparently Baby A has her own agenda. With Jack and I as parents I shouldn't have expected anything less. haha.

The donut puts us at 2 different numbers (for two different dates). We are either 58.8% done (our latest date) or 68.5% (the earliest date). I would love to go with the earliest date, of course. But either way we are moving along.

Okay now on to the pictures. You will notice Little Man has resurfaced in a lot of pictures. Having him gone for the summer was tough. Never again.

Day 89 - Monday September 19th
Little Man snuggling. Too cute

Day 90 - Tuesday September 20th
Lots of packages for Baby A
Day 91 - Wednesday September 21st

Day 92 - Thursday September 22nd

Day 94 - Saturday September 24th
Baby A's dresser and my project for the weekend.. updating her baby book
There is also an appearance by Kobe... that is rare. haha

So that's a quick update on life here. Just waiting on the rest of our little family to get here so we can be whole again. Not much longer.

Hope all is well with everyone!

JMS - Miss you so much. I love you!!

Over Halfway Done!!

Yup we are over halfway done with this thing. Pretty excited about that. Its all down hill from here.

Bentley is finally home! Yeah!! He flew in with my sister on Thursday. Right now he is currently snuggled up next to me as I type. I love that. He really is a good little dog.

Only 6 weeks left till Baby A gets here! Craziness huh? I think we are almost ready. My sister and I are going to go to Babies R Us today and get the last needed things that we didn't already get so we are set just in case. I get nervous hearing about all these babies coming early. Just want to make sure we are prepared when she comes.

We had a baby celebration yesterday with friends. Its was great and of course Baby A was spoiled. She is one lucky little girl. She has some great people in her life.

Now I will get to the pictures of the day.

So close.....49.4%....

Yep...49.4% done. I would love for it to be 50% but not quite there yet. Almost.
So I decided to do a 10 on Monday. I fully know it doesn't quite work but I am okay with that. I figure its my blog so I will do it how I want.
1. I have been a super lucky wife lately. Jack has called me a lot and I even got to see him on Skype the other day. Definitely was amazing.
2. Our goddaughter had her first birthday party this weekend. Hard to believe she is one already. Wow.
3. For that matter our neice is 9. When did she get that old. She was supposed to stay little forever. Apparently she didn't get that memo.
4. Baby A is coming.. soon. Its crazy that now we have less than 7 weeks to go. Seems like time is flying by.
5. Little Man comes home this week. I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about this. I missed my dog.
6. I am dogsitting now and this dog is not even close to the cuddle bug that my little guy is. Maybe cause this little dog is throughly intrigued with Kobe and Kobe is not wanting anything to do with it.
7. This week is the craziest busy week and I am totally okay with it. I am excited to be getting a lot accomplished.
8. After this weekend Jack and I will have a plan to buy whatever else is needed for baby A and her room should be done before next weekend.
9. Putting together baby stuff is not my area of expertise. I am not good at it. Good thing my husband is more mechanical than me and has good friends that help us when I can't figure it out.
10. Apparently I can't sleep enough. I sleep all the time now. Its a fun time. Unless I am up to talk to Jack I am generally sleep at least 10-11 hours a night. So different from what I am used to.
So yeah, thats my quick update.
Hope all is well with everyone.
JMS - I miss you and Ilu.

Almost Halfway

We are close to being halfway done!! So excited about that. So much is happening in the next few weeks. We have less than 8 weeks to go before Baby A should make her appearance. So much to do to get ready.

Lets see a quick update. I got to see Jack today via Skype. It was amazing. I can't even begin to tell you. This was the first time I got to see him since he left. I can't even begin to stop smiling.

My sister is coming to visit next week and she is bringing little man home! I am super excited about that. I successfully installed a new bigger gate to prepare for his arrival. I was all proud of myself seeing as how the installation involved using a drill.

Next week starts some crazy business for me. Monday at least I have off for Labor day. Tuesday is the dr and Wednesday I meet A's dr. Thursday Jody and little man come and then Saturday is my FL baby shower. Sunday we get maternity pictures done and the following Monday is my hospital tour. Craziness right.

We are close to having everything ready for baby A. Just a few more things needed. We are defintiely blessed to have such amazing friends and family who have given us such generous gifts.

So now I will update the pictures of the day.

JMS - best thing ever to see you today. I was so happy. I love you insanely much and I miss you more than you could possibly know.
