5 days or less

Well, the title is correct, I'm having a baby in 5 days or less! This lil' lady is being induced out of my body on February 24th if she doesn't come before then. Wow! That is exciting and scary to say at the same time. I can't wait to meet her and hold her in my arms and finally KNOW that she is safe and healthy. For now, and for the past 9 months, all I've been able to do is pray and rely on God. That is such an amazing feeling- no control at all. I hate it. I am just that kind of person. But I love God with all of my heart and I know that He is in control and that's got to be enough! So, lil' lady whose name you don't yet know will greet us all very soon. Her room is officially ready! Nathan hung the curtains for me last night and I set up empty picture frames! I love her room. It came together how I pictured it in my head and it's really sentimental for me. It is definitely a repurposed room! Her bedding was made out of some of my old bedding (thank you Melody!). Her furniture is new and old. Her dressing table which is being used as a changing table was my mom's when she was a little girl and then I used it too. My parents bought me a dresser to match and that's in her room too. We bought the crib and shelves to match. It's really nice to see it all together and know how special it is and will be for her to use too! Here is a picture of the room and several more are in our web album. We haven't hung the stuff on the wall yet, because her name is going to go above her crib!

We'll let you know once she arrives!
