Our Days are Numbered...

So I did the math today (applause please) and if Olivia arrives exactly when she is due then we only have 26 days left until we get to meet her in person! I can't believe that it is so close. Koby's been on me to pack my bag for the hospital, but of course, I haven't. I'm pretty sure I have all the things that I need...I'm just procrastinating.

I've got to say that I think I've had my fill of pregnancy. I really miss the second trimester. If you are reading this and just found out you are pregnant, trust me, the second trimester is HEAVENLY! I really shouldn't complain though. It's been fairly easy. It's just that lately it has been really hot outside and I'm starting to swell...big time. The only shoes I can wear are flip flops so I have a brown pair and a black pair that I wear with my work clothes! It's quite a sight!

Speaking of a sight, I've got some pictures of the bedding and some other cute stuff! The bedding came in last Thursday so I washed it and put it on crib over the weekend! It's just as pretty in person as it looked on the website. I love it! The picture on the left is a close up of the sheets. I just realized that I think I might have put the bumper pads on wrong...does the design part go facing the inside or the outside? Maybe I should switch it around. :)

I've also been meaning to post a picture of these cute onesies that our friend Angela made for Olivia. I think I might use the one on the bottom that says "Olivia" as her coming home outfit! I washed all the baby clothes this weekend and realized that I've got LOTS of cute, cute clothes, especially onesies. Good thing she'll probably need to be changed often!

Awwww...I feel so honored! (Even for one of my outfits to be considered for the "coming home" outfit!) I'm so glad you like them!

The bedding looks great! To answer your question...I don't know if there is a "proper" way to put bumper pads on, but I put the pictures on ours facing in, to give the baby something to look at--and Norah has loved it. As she's grown older, sometimes I go into her room after a nap and I find her naming the animals she sees on her bumper pads.

I actually did our bumpers half and half. They were yellow on one side and sheet music fabric on the other, so I thought that it would be a little too stimulating to have all that black and white facing in. I recommend at least putting the back bumper with the picture facing in, so it looks good in pictures : )

I took Caroline's bumper pads out at 9 months b/c I was afraid she'd step on them to climb out - she uses just about anything to climb on when she's not in the crib, so it was only a matter of time.

I just have to say, I put a bumper pad on with the ties next to the mattress one time, and that was after I'd had babies for awhile. It looked pretty silly. We are looking forward to meeting Olivia. Enjoy your last few weeks to sleep. I haven't slept late in 2 years and 11 months.
