I am nesting up a storm here at our house. It is amazing how much you think you need to get done before the baby arrives. It is like something just kicks into gear. An urgency to accomplish all these tasks-as if they wont still be there after she comes. I have been trying to pace myself (as insisted on by my loving hubby-who remembers the last time I did too much in one day-contractions till 1 AM-YIKES!). So, the necessities are top priority, then the rest of the list (which is 3 pages long!).
The kids are getting so excited for her to come. Moriah loves pretending she is pregnant too and often reads stories to my belly and sings to her. She reminds me often that she will be coming out in August and prays for her "baby sister in mommy's tummy" every night. Levi has taken to seeing my belly. It is kind of embarrassing when we are out and about. He likes to pat is sister in my tummy and give my belly kisses. He will just come up and lift up my shirt so he can "see" her. I think he is learning that he can only do that at home. Lord knows I do not want my huge belly exposed for the public!
Zack is just as excited as I am to meet her and snuggle our little girl. We have yet to 100% decide on a name though. There are a couple contenders that we are close to settling on. Some have given us a hard time for not knowing her name yet, but it is a big decision that she will be stuck with for the rest of her life-so we are ok with being sure before we announce what we will call her. We are open to suggestions if you have any! We are trying to pick something with great meaning, biblical, and pretty to say.
