Baby Due in Six Days!

Laura here.

Baby Girl is due in six days. Nesting is taking the form of more or less keeping the house picked up and the laundry done, which takes almost constant effort when you have a toddler who is wild and still wearing cloth diapers (although partly potty trained, praise God!).

As of yesterday the baby's bed and car seat are all ready to go, the diaper bag is packed and my list is made of what to pack for the hospital, what to pack for Henry for Grandma's and what Neal is responsible for bringing to the hospital.

All the Christmas presents have been sent, delivered or wrapped and displayed where Henry can't reach them until it's time to give them.

At the end of my last pregnancy I made a bunch of meals and froze them, but I found out I don't really like thawed casseroles that much. I did make muffins and cookies to freeze this time, though. Those are always good... Right now I am pressure canning beans and meat (separately) to hopefully have easy, healthy and homemade stuff on hand that isn't frozen after Baby's arrival.

If you think of it, please pray that we avoid another c-section. All I want for Christmas is a healthy baby (and a VBAC is a close second).

Stay tuned!!
