Tomorrow-Only a Day Away

It's finally here! Tomorrow, I am being induced. I am 37 weeks, but due to mild pre-eclampsia my doctor has ordered an induction. I cannot believe we will meet baby Theresa tomorrow. I have so many feelings right now; excitement, anxiety, nervousness.
I think we have everything ready for her, for now. Diapers, Wipes, Clothes, Car Seat, Pack and Play for her to sleep in our room for the first little while...(below is a picture of the pack and play cradle, her car seat and my hospital bag!)
I still don't know where the past nine months have gone but one things for sure, I am so excited to welcome our daughter into the world!

34 Weeks

At the beginning of the week, I couldn't believe how quick this pregnancy went. I cannot believe I am 34 weeks! Looking in the mirror, I begin to believe it a little more!
I still feel there are so many things to get ready before baby Theresa arrives! But, for some reason the saying "ready or not, here I come!" continues to run through my mind.

April 27, 2000. 4:59 p.m. A little girl was born weighing 7 lbs, 20 1/4 long.

I cannot believe it has already been 10 years! This little girl has brought so much joy to my life. At times she was my strength, other times she caused me panic (breaking her leg at 18 months old)....One thing is certain, I couldn't love her more.

Today my little girl turns 10. She is growing and maturing into a beautiful young woman who I am so proud of. I cannot wait to continue to watch her grow over the next 10 years.

Happy 10th Birthday, Elizabeth! I love you so much!

For the Love of...Shoes

I blame this completely on "pregnancy brain." Week 30. I have been reading about possible body changes, I was thankful my feet haven't gotten bigger or swollen.

Then, I went to put on a pair of flats I wore yesterday...the shoe wouldn't go on! I tried and tried and finally got my foot in the shoe, but it was really uncomfortable...I couldn't believe my feet grew overnight.! Then I realized I put my right foot in the left shoe.

Home Stretch!

28 Weeks! I am in my third trimester and there is an end in sight!

This also means she is going to be here before we know it, and we need to start getting ready!

This past week I decided to get creative and make things.
I made baby blanket (sewing a silky edge on a blanket Elizabeth picked out for her sister) and painted wooden letters for her wall. I had originally registered for letters, but painting my own was much more fun!
