In preparation for Baby Blythe we have,
-painted the room that is now the nursery
-painted the room that is now the grandparent suite
-replaced carpet in the front of our house
-added walls to Ryan's office that was open
-cleaned the entire house from top to bottom
-cleaned out every closet, the pantry, etc.
-put together furniture for the nursery and redecorated
I guess this doesn't all seem totally overwhelming, until I think about the fact that we started it all a few weeks into the third trimester. No wonder I just took a nap.

Relaxing in the glider to celebrate some paint swatches. Loooove this chair!
Walls painted, time for the crib...

A break from some cleaning with a visit from my friend, Allison Lee (Bradley) and her new little one, Avery.Last weekend the moms, after begging for a way to help us get ready, came to do a deep clean. This picture is not posed. They had a mini-planning meeting and made a "to do" list. Our house is so clean that even the hose that connects the dryer to the wall is lint-free. Love it.
So, I think other than that whole, "labor" thing, I can finally say that I'm ready for Blythe to get here. Okay, even with the labor, we are both thrilled to meet our baby girl! We're ready to take the next step in our married and family life. It's go time!
