I am 38 weeks this week...woohooo!!! To say I am ready is an understatement...BUT I am not ready till the 26th. I want to spend Christmas at home and not in a hospital AND it will be hard enough on Tucker to understand the whole "little sister" process without having a baby on Christmas. BUT of course we will take Saylor Kate anytime, it just works better after the holidays.
Speaking of Tucker, he is doing great understanding the whole little sister thing. He calls her by name, he loves her bedroom and kisses my belly often. What he isn't going to understand is how much pain I will be in after the C Section and when I can't lift him. :(  We have a great support team though and we will get through it!
How am I feeling. NO dilation as of my 37 week appt. I am having small contractions but nothing serious or too hurtful...they might even be major braxton hicks. I am nesting like crazy. My Christmas is all done and wrapped, my groceries are bought for holiday baking, Saylor's room is all ready and her bag is packed. I am ready. Bring on Christmas!!! And actually I am still feeling really good. I am not too tired and I still have energy to keep up with my house, shop and make dinner for my family (oh and work full time). I am not swelling this time (my wedding rings are still ON) and my shoes all still fit. With Tucker, I was so swollen you could have popped me!!

So, my last day of work is Thursday and after that is full fledged Christmas with my family, baking and resting. I have a couple dates planned for Tucker and I (and daddy) before Saylor comes also. OH, and I didn't forget about big brother at the hospital...he has a special gift from Saylor already and a special shirt to wear.

Look at that pretty baby..>I can't believe we will be doing this all again soon!!! Prayers are welcome

Not in labor.....

I am sure you guys have been calling every police station around wondering where I was? Well calm your little self down, I am here. I mean I know you can't imagine how busy I have been....

The Truth is I have been getting last minute Christmas shopping done and tidying up the house as much as I possibly can. I am almost completely finished with Christmas (and this included wrapping) so I am ahead of the game. Oh and not sure I have ever said on here but baby girl's room.....Saylor Kate getting closer. We have put the bed together with some finishing touches coming this evening and this weekend I am organizing and hanging pictures!!! A huge rock will be off my shoulders when her room is done. (also there is NO meaning behind Saylor's name....I just loved it!! It is different and I like different. I had to fight with the husband about it for a while, but we see who go her way. And Kate comes from Katherine my gma's name....actually we might lengthen it Katherine).

In other news...Tucker is really enjoying every part of Christmas. He is excited about Santa and reindeer and all the above. He doesnt' totally understand the whole concept but we are working on baby Jesus and such too. We have been driving around looking at lights and we have visited Santa in the mall once.....Tucker likes Santa but does NOT like to sit on his lap. :)

So here is to finishing up ALL Christmas and Saylor's room this weekend and then plenty of baking and relaxing. I have 2 weeks of work and then 4 days to prepare for baby and she is HERE!!! 3 weeks people...its NUTSO
