I finished your nursery today. I have your crib and dresser, and a changing pad on top of your dresser. I also put away the last of your shower gifts. Everything is waiting for you to come home.

Physically, I feel tired. My belly is HUGE, and I finally have the pregnancy waddle. The midwife said you are head down and your head is pretty low, which means you are getting ready to come out into the world, probably in the next two weeks. I am ready to meet you whenever you are ready 🙂
