Only 8.5 cm to go...

Today was a big day - I was off of work and we got to find out how I am progressing towards getting this baby out!  As you may have determined from the title I am 1-1.5 cm dilated, 50% effaced and the baby should weigh about 6.5-7 lbs, depending on how skinny/chunky of a monkey he/she is.  The doctor thinks we probably have around a week or so left to go, but at this point anything goes really.  Hopefully the baby will be more on time than his/her mother ever is! 

On another note - we finally FINISHED the baby's room! So here are a few pics...  

Jess' baby shoes
Window wall
Closet Wall
Crib wall (we made the sign)
I drew this for my grandparents in 1989. :)
Changing Table Wall
So we are pretty proud of ourselves, but the pics definitely do not do it justice! Hopefully lots of you will be able to see the room in person. :)

Baby Cake

Arnold sent this to me tonight and I thought it was too funny not to share - I'd say this baby and our baby are both about done cooking!

38 weeks...

I decided with the baby so VERY close to joining us in the outside world it might be a good time to start writing a blog so that everyone can keep up with the happenings of our new little family.  We are still trying to do all the last minute stuff to get ready for the baby, I have a "to do" list (0f course) that Jess has really enjoyed being able to mark things off of as we get them done.  I will try to post pictures of the baby's room sometime this week - it is SO close to being finished that I can hardly stand it.  We do have a doctors appointment tomorrow, so let's hope that this baby is heading on out!
