C/Karter's Eve

So tomorrow is the big day!! I can't wait! I have 12 hours until I need to be at the hospital and I'm not even close to ready! I haven't packed my bag, shaved my legs, painted my toes or showered, the baby swing is still in a box, the crib isn't even put together yet and I'd still love to pick up some more things around the house and vacuum. We'll see if that last bit gets done!

When I had Keaton everything was ready months before he was born! There are a few factors as to why I'm not prepared this time around. First being that we don't know the sex so there's not a whole heck of a lot I can do to the room anyway. Second is that we just moved in here and I've been working on getting Keaton settled in and his room finished before I work on my unborn child's room that he/she wont even use for the first month! =) I realized once I had Keaton that everything doesn't have to be perfectly finished and in it's place right when you get home from the hospital! The baby will be sleeping in our room at first and Kyle will be home all day everyday the rest of the week so he'll be able to get a lot done during the day. I'm just a lot more relaxed I guess! =)

Last night I told Kyle that this was the last night for us to tuck Keaton in as an only child since he's staying at my parents house tonight. We all laid down in his bed and we started telling him that C/Karter was coming out out of my belly and we'd get to hold him/her soon, wasn't that cool! He said, "YES!" and threw his arms in the air. He said he was going to give C/Karter kisses! He's just so cute and he's really excited! I can't wait until he meets the baby! He's going to be such a great big brother!

As for me I really can't believe it's tomorrow!! I can't wait! Please keep us in your prayers and I'll post the sex as soon as I'm up to it! =) My guess is boy! =) We'll see! Oh and my feet...they look like Professor Klump from The Nutty Professor!! No lie! Actually my right foot does, the left isn't tooooo bad but it's just unbelievable what pregnancy can do to a girl! =) I honestly have no ankles at the moment! Just 2 tree trunks! I really should drink more water as I hardly drink any but oh well, baby will be out tomorrow!

Here's some video I took the other morning of him eating breakfast. I love the stage he's at right now, the kid cracks me up! =)
