39 weeks and counting!

Well, I'm still waiting! 39 weeks and waiting to be exact. I went to the doctor last Thurs., and I'm still dilated 1 cm and effaced 75%. No change... Dr. Edwards said I could go past my due date. So, my due date is this Thurs., June 3rd. I'm thinking she will come Monday or Tuesday. Zach says June 6th. Mom says June 10th, and Jarrett, Dad and Christal say Tuesday/Wed. We will see! No contractions or anyhing yet. I'm ready to meet Tate! Can't wait to see her little face for the first time!

The nursery is finally finished thanks to my mom and dad! Mom and Dad brought the furniture over after mom painted/distressed both pieces. This took a lot of time, sweat, and love from Mom. Thanks so much Mom!! Mom came over Saturday with my nieces, and we hung pictures, and put the final finishing touches on the nursery. You can't see it very well in the pics, but I stenciled two birds above the old window in the nursery. I can't wait for Tate to see her new room. I have 2 weeks and three days until her due date. I can't wait to kiss her sweet little face!!

I can't believe Tate will be here in less than a month. She is due June 3rd. I was looking at my calendar this morning as I do every morning. I usually turn to the next mo. or two to plan ahead, and see what I have ahead of me. I turned one page and there was JUNE!! This has really been a very fast pregnancy. I don't have anything to compare it to regarding time, but it has gone by fast to me!

Mom and Dad are bringing over my furniture that mom has distressed/painted next week. Thanks Mom!!! My crib and bedding are already in place. The monitor is ready to go. I'm packing my bags this Thursday night, so I'll be prepared if she comes early. I feel more comfortable about breast feeding since my sis-in-law Christal has helped answer questions, and I have read LOTS of stuff on the internet about it. I also tried out my breast pump the other day which is an huge EYE-OPENER, WOW! I guess all of this will be an eye-opener for Zach and me. Also, I wonder what she will look like. Zach and I look so different. Will she have dark hair with an olive skin complexion like her daddy, or strawberry-blonde hair with freckles and fair skin like me??? Zach and I both have brown eyes, but she may have blue eyes like her Pops (my Dad), Nana (Zach's mom), or my niece, Camryn. Maybe green eyes like my other niece, Jacey?? Hmmm....?? I guess we will see soon!

Jacey's First Swimming Lesson

Jacey had her first swimming lesson today at Gold's Gym in Vestavia. She did so good. She didn't act nervous or shy at all. I am so proud of her. She is growing up so quickly. She needs to slow it down. Camryn had a good time too, and can't wait to take lessons with her sister. I'm so glad I get off work earlier now so I can share these times with them.
