Getting excited.....

I am getting so excited to meet this new baby girl. How do I show this? By getting everything ready now! I have clean out and organized every closet in the house and the entire garage! Reese is displaying her Halloween costume in August and I have washed all the preemie clothes and some newborn in dreft (LOVE the smell of that stuff!!). Last time with Reese I was caught by surprise and was not at all ready and didn't have time to get to that "I'm excited to meet my baby" phase. So I started that phase early this time so I could really enjoy it!

Here is Reese being the character from one of her favorite books...the Grouchy Lady Bug! (I love her personality and can't wait to see what Maleah's personality will be like!)

What can you get for a quarter these days....

A little bit of pre-school heaven! I got that whole box of playdough toys for a quarter today at a yard sale! Reese loved it! But I have to admit my sister Kami beat me....she got a DVD player for the car, that works, for free! Now that is pretty darn good.

I am getting BIG!

28 weeks down, 12 to go! And I am the same size I was at 34 weeks with Reese! Yikes! I guess this is what happens when you actually eat while pregnant....last time I said no to the anti nausea meds and threw up most of the time. This time around I went in to the Dr at week 7 begging for meds! Things sure do change. While it is hard watching my body get bigger and bigger, I do know it is for a wonderful purpose. I was reflecting in church...thinking about what happened to Christ's body for all of us and realizing that I need to whine a lot less about this short time of giving up my body for one new life. Here is to 12 weeks of no whining!! :)
