It's Spring!

So there is still a few inches of snow on the ground, so what? At least it's sunny and above 30! That means the kids are outside!!!! Yippee! I hear we are to get more snow later this week, so I am sending them out while I can.

I tried to upload photos of the room (prepped for painting) but blogger doesn't want to cooperate. It looks pretty cool with all the bright blue stripes of painters tape. I HOPE we get to paint it tonight (it's been too cold to open the windows) or tomorrow and just get it done. Then, I will include pics of before and after. I am SO READY to have it all done. Nesting, nesting...

ALL I can think about is baby. With Sam, I was induced so I knew when he was coming and pretty much how it would all go and with Natalie, she came a week early, so I was caught off guard and didn't have this WAITING issue. This spontaneous labor thing is weird and a little annoying, I am afraid, to the people who talk to me often. My mom said to me the other day, "Your life is pretty much baby, huh?" Yep, that sums it up. I have 3 other kids. You would think I would have lots of other things to think about. Nope, just baby. I also think part of me is just ready to be NOT PREGNANT for quite a while. I only had a 6 month break between the last 2 pregnancies and that was not enough. I am going for at least a 3 year break this time:)

I go into the Dr tomorrow and let's all hope I am in labor and just don't know it:)

We're very excited for you! I've been thinking about the whole spontaneity of pregnancy thing myself even though I still have 12 weeks to go! I'm not too worried about the baby's room since he'll be with us for awhile since our bedroom is down and all the other bedrooms are upstairs. I do need to get in gear and buy some baby stuff. My friends are having a baby shower in April so hopefully we'll get some things for him then. We can't wait to see your new little girl! :)

Well here is to hoping. My kids are three years apart and at this rate the next one will be three years apart. We want to wait till we are out of my parents house (not enough room). Oh well. I'm glad you have the room preped for painting to me thats half the battle...I hate painting. Spring is on its way for sure. I can't wait. Kenny wants to go out all the time. He even walks down the walkway now just so he is out longer.

okay, I'll make sure I keep my fingers crossed for you. Can't wait to see the room as I'm sure you can't wait for it to be done!

I would say that your body seriously deserves a break. I hope you're in labor and that she comes as soon as she's ready! I totally hear ya on the just baby thought process. That's me the last few weeks of every pregnancy! Good Luck!
