The Final Stretch

Four more weeks to go!
We finally have everything we need,that I can think of for the little one. I am sure I will think of more things once the baby is here.
I am so happy we were able to switch over to the Birth Center. I was feeling really depressed after we went on the hospital tour,and not at all looking forward to laboring there.
But now I am really looking forward to having the baby at the birth center. I have heard nothing but great things from other mamas who have given birth there. It has all the comforts and freedom of a home birth, but then you also have the luxury of staying afterwards and being able to rest, and have people feed you and clean up the mess. I have heard Free standing Birth Centers called "The Bed and Breakfast Homebirth."

Caftastic Thanksgiving Break

Sophie had a week off of school for Thanksgiving, and she kept me very busy crafting the whole time.
I saved a few big boxes from our new dresser to make Sophie a playhouse. A plain brown box is still her favorite thing to play with. So we made a castle,and of course we had to paint it too. Sophie had the idea for the curtain and the built in curtain rod.
We also made a ton of paper snowflakes to hang from our ceiling. Then she picked out some soft yarn for a new hat, she insisted all the other ones I have made for her in the past were to itchy. Sophie also helped me make a belly cast. Sophie was born 4 weeks to the day from when I made her cast, Let see if this baby follows the tradition. I will post photos of it once I decide what to paint on it.

The puking pumpkin, Sophie's idea.
