Rambling thoughts of a 38 week pregnant woman

Time passes more quickly as we get older. It seems only 8 years and 10 1/2 months ago I was awaiting the birth of my eldest child. I am now with a week of having my fourth. As I mentioned in my last blog that I had my "To Do" list and was quite successful in getting about 75% of it accomplished and now have a short "What really needs to get done before this kid gets here" list almost done I am nesting quite nicely. Well I would be if that laundry would stop piling up and those darn dished would stop getting dirty.( I won't even get into the stinky hamster cage)





I did have the opportunity of taking my girls to my last appointment so that they could partake in the experience of hearing their baby sister's heartbeat. They smiled and seemed to enjoy it. I took the advice of my husband and brought a long a delightful babysitter known as Ellie to help herd the children from my appointment to Kate's eye doctor to getting the car fixed. She was my salvation well worth any amount of money even though she tried to turn me down. They were for the most part well behaved but it makes such a difference to have someone sit with them while you pay bills and talk about what's wrong with a car or getting checked by the doctor( very important not to let them stay for that).





I am not sitting with all eyes on me and hoping that I will soon pop. I am glad Ben is more anxious than I for her to arrive and I finally had a baby dream last night and it was nice( by the way she a good eater and I was so content with just that so I hope it is true). It will be nice to move on pass the phone calls that begin with "Are you in labor?" thanks for all those who had read this far I just needed to ramble because it's more fun than ironing or cleaning the bathrooms (both on my list) Hopefully I will not have time to ramble again before the baby comes.

I love your babies almost as much as I love mine. It doesn't seem like things are quite finished until the fourth partner in crime shows up. You can tell yours that Isaiah is officially home and she has nothing to worry about she can be born.

I miss those little babies. All so sweet. None of their baby pics look very much alike to me but all still adorable.
