Tomorrow is the Big Day!

I am so excited, I can hardly stand it…. BUT, I still have so much to do to get ready for Gage’s appearance! I have searched through our boxes, and I cannot find any 0-3 month clothes. No sleepers, no gowns, no outfits – nothing. The joy of moving 2 weeks before the baby is born, I guess. So, I’ve got to head out and get at least a couple of outfits for this baby to wear so that he doesn’t have to go naked the first 3 months of his life. 🙂 I need to pack the hospital bag. (No, I still haven’t done that.) I need to fold and put away all the baby blankets, bibs, and burp cloths that I washed. I need to sterilize pacifiers and bottles.

But most of all, I need to relax. And that seems to be what I’m struggling with most. I don’t know if it’s nerves about labor and delivery, since my last experience was so bad, or if it’s the fact that tomorrow, I will be a mom of SIX. Either way, I am a bundle of nerves.

I have to be at the hospital at 5am tomorrow. I doubt that I’ll get any sleep tonight at all, yet my husband will lie in bed next to me, snoring soundly. (How is it HE can relax right now?)

Hubby set up all the baby stuff yesterday – the swing, the cradle, the pack ‘n play, the car seat. Our house looks ready for a baby, so at least we have that much.

I will update you all just as soon as I can!

Enjoy the rest of your week. And stay tuned for lots (and LOTS!) of pictures!

    Oh, bless your heart! Sounds like you have a lot to do! I hope you get a little rest tonight. I learned with my youngest (after he was born) that REST was at least better than not resting at all, even if I didn’t actually sleep.

    Can’t wait to hear the blessed news and see your pictures.
