37 Weeks!

I'm 37 weeks now and if baby decides to come now, it will be fine with me! It's been a hard last couple of months with a lot of pain. I didn't think I was going to make it past those last few weeks of work, but now that I've been home on maternity leave for a little over a week, I've started to feel a lot better. This pregnancy has become manageable. I even scrapbooked last night!!
It has been lots of fun being home with Grace. She is such a joy! And I love the long naps she takes every morning. One day she napped for four hours! I kept checking on her that day and in awe that she was still asleep. She's great!!
Now it's baby watch time. I went to the doctor this morning and there are no signs of labor at this point, so doesn't look like Caleb will be here within the next week. Which is fine, because my best friend shows up next Monday to help us with Grace. Hopefully, Caleb will make his appearance while she is here. I don't feel ready at all for this baby. It's funny how at this time with my last pregnancy, everything was ready, all was organized and set up, and clothes were laundered and put away. Nothing is ready...I've got what we need, it's just still in packages and boxes. We are getting a dresser this weekend so after that I'll tackle his clothing. The crib will have to wait to guests leave...sometime after Christmas. That's okay by me. Even though I am such an organizer, I need to take it easy and with experience, I realize that not everything needs to be ready when he's born. Just the basics!!
This is an old picture of me...from October 27th. My co-workers threw a baby shower for me. I was big...and bigger now!!
And here's our little princess...pretty in pink! She will be 16 months old on Wednesday. And boy is she a busy little toddler.
I can't believe Thanksgiving is a just a few days away. My how time has flown this year. We'll be spending it with some of my family locally. It will be a "healthy" Thanksgiving meal much to Jonas' dismay. Even though my sister asked me not to, I may have to cook up a couple of "Southern" style sides for my Southern hubbie. Any suggestions?
