5 Weeks, 5 Days left! Seriously, I woke up really excited this morning. This is ironic because last night was an AWFUL night. But I'm not the "I can't wait until this misery is over" kind of excited this morning. I'm the "I'm so excited to meet him and love him" kind of excited!

With the exception of hanging a few frames, the nursery is pretty much done. There are still some things we need, but if he were born today, we'd have all of our immediate needs for him met. Usually, I'm always preparing last minute for upcoming events, but I can honestly say that I'm ready. I wish the nesting instinct would kick in every time I needed to get things done!

My wardrobe is shrinking as there are fewer and fewer maternity tops that will still cover my belly. I think they should label maternity clothes like they do baby clothes: 0 - 3 months, 3 - 6 months and 6 - 9 months.

I have two more showers and they're both this week. I'm so grateful for the people who have thrown them / are throwing them for us. I'm not sure what we would have done without them! I feel so blessed . . . not just by the gifts but by the fact that there are so many people out there who love us and will love this little boy. He has so much family and surrogate family that he'll never be lacking for love, advice or support.

Kyle and I bought a mattress for the crib on Friday with some gift cards. We also got to pick out some clearance clothing items. It seems like no matter how many clothes, it never seems like we have enough. I had a parent tell me yesterday that there are days they go through 3 - 4 sets of clothes a day with their newborn! I'm going to be doing a lot of laundry!
