Still hangin on!

So even though I started early labor 3 weeks ago... babygirl has stayed put and is apparently still comfycozy in her spot!  We'll keep everyone posted for sure, but for now - no real changes.  I'm doing good - a bit uncomfortable as the days have gone by, but soooo excited to meet her SOON.  We've been ready for over 2 weeks, with the nursery all set up, bags packed and by the door and the car seat in the car.  :)  

A few weeks ago, John decided to change his ringtone for me (which was previously Baby by Justin Beiber.  A little known fact about my husband... he's a Beiber fan) to this audio clip from Gone With the Wind (click here to listen).  Makes me laugh everytime it goes off.

Here's a current pic of me in my 9-months-pregnant glory!  Hopefully the next update pic will look a lot different, with our baby girl here with us.  

Stay tuned!!!

Cradle from Papa

My dad, who is quite the woodworker, made a beautiful cradle for us.  He decided to FedEx it out to us, so he & my mom wouldn't have to worry about traveling with it when they come for the baby.  We got the package yesterday and I was so excited to get it put together!  I asked my dad if the cradle could match our bedroom furniture, and he did so perfectly.  

I love having hand-made items from so many people who will love this baby dearly.  This will be a cherished item in our family for a long time...

Putting it together - my dad had the holes coded by number for us   :)

Last piece!

All ready for our little one
