R-E-A-D-Y

Ok, now we've even put the carseat in the car- we are r-e-a-d-y. Hurry up baby William! He was so patient to wait on my good friend Polly (see pics of Polly below with me in paris as a "chaperone" last year..she needs her own blog because she's a travel guru) to return from Sweeden, now she's home, what is he waiting for??? I asked my nephew Eli (who's 3) when he thought baby William was coming and he said "probably Christmas day"..hmmmm......


I'm not sure if I posted this earlier or not, but our babysitter backed out on us- it was a strange situation. I have been frantically looking for someone and we've finally decided on someone- she's great, sweet, and only keeps one other baby (a 6mo old). I think it's going to be great. She lives about 5 minutes away and it's affordable!!!!- the second most important part! I think we've hit the jackpot!


The sewing room has been cleaned up and packed up- at least for a little while. Look at the link on my blog and you'll find a blog with great projects and great directions- thanks to Callie for sending it to me! (By the way, welcome to the blog world Callie :-) I finished William's last project- the yellow sleep sack-thing (I don't know what to call it- Chad doesn't like the word "gown") I'll wait and post a picture of him wearing it soon :-) And a quick picture of me and all of the belly. (How did it get sooo big???)....I must be crazy for posting this :-)


Maybe the next time I post it will be about a baby...... or me just still waiting for the baby to get here!

I dont think you look that big at all! Someone just asked " When you gonna have that thing?" Seriously people.

I am gald you found a good sitter. They are so hard to find, especially affordable ones. It is a nice feeling. Are you going back to Vanderbilt in the fall or did you get the job at the school?

You just look full of baby, but in a regular way, not an "OMG!!!!!" way. Like Kate from Jon + 8 Hate Kate. SHE was OMG!!!!!

Go get a pedicure. It'll be nice to have pretty toes once you can see them again :-D

thats quite the belly you have there, i can say that because i am your sister :) you looked good though, all baby belly. we loved those "sleep sacks" jeff didnt like the word gown either and he didnt like them at first, said they looked like a dress, then came to appreciate them a 3am changing a diaper...better than buttons in the dark! eli still thinks christmas would be good for baby william, but he says friday will be okay.... a new baby for your weekend...
