5 weeks left....

Well, I haven't actually scheduled the c-section date yet but we are hoping to have Katie on March 16, 2009. This is 5 weeks from today. It seems so close yet so far away. Things are finally coming together at the house and we just finished up with Michael's new room.

We are going to start working on the nursery this week. This should actually be pretty easy to decorate as we are mainly keeping things the same in the room. We have already gotten the bedding and need to change the toddler bed back into the crib. We are going to put some pink accents in the room and put Katie's name on the wall, like we had with Michael. I am excited to see how much different it looks with a baby girl in there!!

We have been extremely fortunate to have several people lend us baby clothes and have already been talking about how clothes will be the one thing this girl does not have a shortage of! There are such cute things for little girls to wear and I can't wait to dress Katie. I tell people that boys have the cool toys and girls have the cool clothes. Of course, this will probably translate into boys having the expensive toys later and girls having the expensive clothes later. Remind me of that in the teenage years!!

Your five weeks will probably go slow and fast at the same time! Yes, girls are such fun to dress and accessorize! And I'm sure it will become even more expensive when we hit teenage-hood!

You're going to love getting to do all the girl stuff now! It's so much fun.

Wait, if boys toys are cheap now, I'm in big trouble. Stupid Thomas the Train.

I can't believe you have only a month left!! That's too exciting! Are you going to post pictures of Katie's room when it's done? I hope you can get the 16th!!
