Time Marches On...

The days are winding down...we are in the home stretch here. I had my 35 week appointment this morning and was reassured that if I were to have Lily any time from now on that everything should be fine. My hospital bag is packed, I am putting the final touches on my Birth Plan, an overnight bag for Jonah sits beside my own bag, so he can be taken care of at Grandma and Papa's house while we are "busy". I even packed his his Big Brother, so he can wear it to the hospital to meet his little sister for the first time. I have a list of things that need to be grabbed last minute, like a pillow, my laptop, and ipod. I just put Lily's car seat in the van today, to see how it works, and i am extremely happy with it.
At this point, it is a waiting game. I am working less, doing less around the house, and feeling plenty prepared for her. Well, I don't think I will ever be fully prepared, as I am always thinking of ONE MORE THING I need for her at all times. Right now, it is socks. Particularly the socks that look like cutesy little mary jane shoes, I found them at Target, but haven't bought them. I am also on the lookout for the same thing, but in tights. As well as leggings, in plain colors, though. We are also looking into an Easter dress for her, and I think I found one, just waiting on some info from the Etsy shop owner that I am wanting to get it from. I'll post a link to the dress once we decide on which one we are going to get. It is SO SUPER cute!
I find myself sitting in the bath...wondering when she will make her appearance. Will it be tonight? Next week? Next month? All of those time frames seem SO drastically different and so far from one another. So far apart.
I know she will come in due time, her own time. And I am okay with that. I know I complain about the discomfort and annoyance of being pregnant, but I so content and at peace with it all. I am so happy to be right where I am right now.

How exciting Jen. I would love to see how you look with your tiny little body and a cute prego belly. I bet it's adorable. I'll be thinking of you these next few weeks. Can't wait to hear the news!
