Last night my sister arrived! She will be here a little over a week - and hopefully bug will arrive during that time. She hasn't even been here 24 hrs and she has helped me (ok, I watched) clean, sweep and mop our bedroom, go through all my clothes, assemble our bedframe, and set up the bassinet. Who needs a nesting instinct when you have sister bootcamp? For the first time in weeks my inner monologue is not, "Come on, baby! When are you coming to meet us already?" but rather "Just stay put another day or two...we have a lot to do out here!"
So other than whipping the last loose ends into shape - we are waiting. My due date is the day after tomorrow. Oh, how sure I was I was going to go significantly early. Oh, how little control we have over these things. Oh, how swollen my feet are. (I couldn't get FLIP-FLOPS on this morning!)
Leo is happy happy happy with both Uncle Daniel and Aunt Lissa under our roof. The house is not feeling as claustrophobic as I had anticipated with four adults, a kid, and a dog. Bring on the newborn and additional family!
