So close and yet so far!

Well here I am at 37 weeks!!! I can't believe I am so close, but at the same time it feels like it is taking forever for her to come. I don't really like to complain, but I am 100% done with being pregnant. I am very very uncomfortable all the time and my feet and ankles are just a joke. They are so swollen that Nate and I laugh about them all the time. I was thinking that I would put a picture up, but I don't think that my ego can handle it right now. I did have a doctors appointment last tuesday. My doctor said that nothing has happened and I'm not dialated. I was somewhat dissapointed since everyone at work has been telling my that everyone they know goes 4 weeks early! So I have another appointment on Tuesday and I am just trying not to expect anything.

We have been doing some projects to get everything ready for little Sadie. One project is that I have been putting together some baskets that are going to go on a baker's shelf in Sadie's room. I'm not sure if we know exactly what is going in them, but at least I think they turned out so so cute! Here is a before and after of the baskets. I found the baskets for $2.50 each, and the material was $2.00 a yard and the ribbon (which is pratically our bedding, Thanks Walmart!) was $4.00 for 10 yards. I am all about inexpensive projects. :)

Another project that we have been working on is getting another bed so that when people come and stay they will have a bed. We were looking into all of our options and finally came up with a solution. (Side note- My husband is the best and you will understand why in a minute) We purchased a KING sized bed!!! I had been asking for a King size bed for a couple of months since I am so uncomfortable when I sleep and Dodger sleeps in the middle of Nate and I. Even though he is a little guy (dodger), he will sometimes push you around. King sized beds are really really expensive, but we were lucky enough to find one at Sleep America that was on sale and extremely nice. Well, before we left the store, we had purchased it and the bed was scheduled to be delivered two days after that! So now, we have an amazing king sized bed that gives us both so much room. And now when people come to visit (that is an invitation to all ) they will have a really really nice bed to stay on. And of course, I made Nate get a cute comforter set for the both beds. :) (See I told you he was the best)

The rest of this post is going to be a shout out to Nate. It is Father's day and he is going to be a father soon enough. I can't tell you how excited he is to be a father. He has been so supportive through the entire pregnancy, even when I wake him up at 2:00 am with leg cramps. Or 3:30 am becasue I had a nightmare. He will go to Walmart to get milk and come back with 4 new outfits for Sadie. And Yes, they match and are so cute! Not only is he excited for Sadie, but he continues to provide for our family. He has an amazing work ethic and does what needs to be done even though it may not be what is most enjoyable. He is working hard to get on the police academy and is not giving up on his dream. He knows what he wants to do and is not afraid to fight for it. I am so lucky to have him in my life! I am so excited to be able to spend my whole life with him. I could not imagine my life without him. We have such a good time together and he always makes me laugh. Nate I love you so much and I know that Sadie is the luckiest little girl ever!
