I am 25 weeks as of today. I have a few months to get everything in order. Phew. There are a few books I'd like to look over before she gets here (breastfeeding books and baby sleep books and maybe a labor book or two). A few onesies need to be purchased. We need a carseat. I'd like to get a swing and a bouncy seat... Maybe a few more soft (pink!!) blankets... Some breast pump parts... Maybe a couple bottles (I'd like to try the Tommee Tippee kind! On a funny note, they really do look like a plastic boob, haha)... I need to figure out where this stinker is going to sleep (because, you know, babies do a lot of that :) ).. And the list goes on.
But!!! at least I have matching Big Sister/Little Sister shirts for the little princesses. I can check that off my list! :)

For Miss Charlotte
In pregnancy news, everything has been fine lately. Contractions have gone away, or at least have just become the regular ole BH contractions. Nausea is *finally* gone, PRAISE JESUS. I haven't blown chunks in over 2 weeks, that is a very big milestone for me. :) Of course, it has been replaced with indigestion that makes me WANT to barf, but I mean, beggars can't be choosers I guess. My belly has popped out over the past couple weeks (again, finally!) and I'm actually starting to look like I have a bun in the oven instead of just a beer gut (and I don't even drink).
Next week, Charlotte starts a Mother's Morning Out type program at a local church. It lasts for 9 months and its only for 2 mornings a week (8:30am-noon) and I am pretty excited about it, for both of us! Every time she is around little ones her age she just has a blast and goes wild so I figure this can be a fun outlet for her. And hey, the wordless-chatterbox (ask me how that works)-child might even pick up a few words! Well, at least I hope they will be good and edifying words. :) And I might even be able to get some errands done, like... Grocery shopping sans toddler! Or go to the dentist! Or go to one of my million OB appointments! Or have some 1 on 1 time with the babe when she gets here. The possibilities are endless. I am excited. :)
