The End is Near

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and it is getting brighter by the day.  Baby day is fast approaching.  We are scheduled to start the induction process in 26 days.  Wow!  I've had several dreams in the past week that involve me having a c-section (Yikes!) and last night I finally saw little Logan in my dream.  Unfortunately, the only part of the dream that I remember is him having dark hair.  We shall see if that holds true. 

We are very ready to meet our little guy, but still very nervous too.

Counting Down

My official countdown has begun.  I am probably starting a lot sooner than most, but I have to if I want to keep my sanity.  Ha!

We are scheduled to be induced eight weeks from today.  Unbelievable!  I am ready and not ready all at the same time.  I am starting to panic about having to be responsible for the life of a little person.  I question whether or not I can handle it..if I am meant to be a mom.  I have every hope in the world that I am meant to do this "job" and that I will do it well. 

Eddie is super excited and tells me everyday how ready he is to meet our little man. :)  Don't get me wrong, I am excited to, about meeting him that is, NOT about the actual process of delivery.  The thought of how Logan will enter this world FREAKS me out!  No joke.  I just keep reminding myself that thousands of women do it daily and many do it more than once so it cannot possibly be that bad.  I have always considered myself strong and able to handle pain...hope this experience is no different.

UPS Made My Day!

When I got home for lunch today I was greeted by a large box on my front stoop.  What was inside you ask?  Take a look...

Cuddle Buddy

Changing Pad Cover

Lumbar Pillow


We are still awaiting the arrival of window treatments, crib skirt, sheet and bumper.  The company has advised us that those items are scheduled to ship out sometime the week of February 18th.  So excited to get the nursery finished.  In addition to the bedding, we are waiting on a recliner that we ordered.  It is considered "custom" because we chose the fabric color.  I am learning that "custom" equals a LONG wait...not good for impatient people like me.  Lol!

Nursery Progress

We have finally gotten the furniture cleared out of the spare bedroom and are poised to start the transformation into Logan's nursery. 

Today we ordered the crib bedding and window treatments.  We are trying desperately to stay away from a themed nursery and have chosen a fabric combination of yellow and various shades of blue.  This color combination was Eddie's first pick and I just decided to go with it. :)

We went to look at furniture this afternoon and have decided to go with a "lifetime" crib which turns into a toddler bed, day bed and then full-size bed.  Rather than the normal "nursery" dressers we have chosen two pieces from the same manufacturer of our bedroom set.  This (hopefully) means that this furniture will last through high school.  That is our intent anyway! 

We are painting next Saturday!  I will be sure to post pictures of the various stages of progress in the nursery.  I am so excited that we are beginning to make progress and create a space for our little man..

Here are the fabrics chosen with care by Daddy:

Update on Baby

At our second anatomy ultrasound on December 23rd we discovered that what they thought was a baby girl at our December 2nd appointment is actually a baby boy.  It was clear on the screen that this baby is DEFINITELY a boy.  So, we will be welcoming our SON, Logan Connor, in late April/early May.  It was a bit of a shock to find out that our "girl" had grown a third "leg", but after some time to let it soak in we are both thrilled.  Best of all our baby is healthy!

We go back for another ultrasound and to see the doctor on January 13th.  Baby was breach and face down so they were not able to see his brain and both chambers of his heart as well as they would have liked.  Will update once we have that appointment.

I hope everyone had a VERY Merry Christmas.  As always, Eddie and I are BLESSED!!!!
