waiting, waiting

Yes, I am still at home, and yes, I am getting very impatient!!! I have had many contractions in the past 5 days that have made me think we might be ready, but unfortunately, they always stop! I'm to the point where I'm just ready to be done. About last week, Wednesday that started. Up until that point I was feeling great, and the baby was just fine where it was at. I no longer feel great, and I CAN'T WAIT to see if it's a boy or a girl!!!!! I'm so happy we waited to find out. What a great reward in the end after a LONG 9 months!

Eliott has been doing great, and I'm wondering if he is starting to understand a little more what is going on. I did get him some books about being a big brother, and new baby. He really likes the Little Critter New Baby book. That's always one of the 3 he chooses to read before nap and bed. I hope he does well with s/he. We will find out soon enough! He had ECFE again last night. He really seems to enjoy it. We get lots of screams (happy) when we tell him he gets to go to school. He loves to paint, and do playdough, and is really starting to like circle time too, where they sing songs. Even though he's the youngest one there, he seems to fit in just fine!

I need to post some updated pictures of Eli and the baby's rooms. The problem is, is that the camera is packed in the hospital bag, which is in my car. Maybe tonight I'll dig it out. My parents came over last week, and we had my dad very busy haging things up. We finally got Eli's name on the wall. My dad also re-painted an old rocking chair, and brought that over last week. To fit it in the baby's room we had to do some re-arranging. I'll try to update later.

I do have another appt. today, so we'll see what happens. As of last week I was dialated to a 3 and 80%. Hopefully there has been some progress!

Thanks, Amy!! I'm getting soooo impatient! Yes, I am still teaching, and it's getting a little harder each day! My kids are pretty good, and I have some wonderful helpers in my room, so that's a benefit to me! Thanks for checking, I'll be sure to let you know!
