And the beat goes on...

Mike and I have pretty much finished up Kaydee's room and gotten completely ready for her arrival. People keep telling me I will start "nesting" soon (organizing, cleaning, etc...) but I have not had the energy to do much of anything. I feel so tired all the time. For the most part, this pregnancy has been fairly easy & I haven't had any issues other than the normal prego symptoms like swollen feet, ankles, & hands and then of course the occasional pains that go along with it. Time has flown by the past 9 months (I'll be 9 months Monday)and now that I am in the home stretch, time has SLOWED DOWN tremendously. This week has been such a long week & I can only imagine the next few weeks will only get longer & more drawn out. We are all so ready to meet little Kathryn & it's all I can think about. Of course it doesn't help that Mike doesn't get home until almost 10pm every night this week and I am stuck at home alone having to 'fend' for myself...something I am ashamed to say I haven't had to do in a long time. ;)

I have gotten all of the baby's things packed for our short hospital stay and I have gotten most of the things I need ready in case it happens any time now (Which my doctor has mentioned is a possibility).

My dad's family had our annual family reunion on July 24 and it this year it doubled as a baby shower for little Kaydee. We got great stuff! I swear, this little girl will NEVER run out of clothes until the time comes for her to buy her own! Little girl clothes are so much fun to buy and I think everyone seems to agree. :) I have a shower with mine and my mom's friends this weekend (August 1) and after that, Mike and I have decided it's time to go purchase the last bit of items we need to make things a little more 'manageable' when she does come...if that is possible. :)
