I can’t believe we are still at home. The babies are holding on tight. Today we will have our last nonstress test. If they are still staying put, Annie will have blood test done at the hospital on Wednesday. Our scheduled C-section is going to be bright and early on Friday. It’s crazy to know that whether or not we are ready, the babies will come on Friday at the latest. It still feels very surreal even though our house is looking more and more ready for the babies to come home to.
We got our maternity photos back. I printed out three of them and hung them on the wall next to the window. One of them is very sweet: Annie and I were sitting down with my hand on her belly and both of us looking at her belly. These pictures look great on the wall. And then last night, Bob and I spent a long time doing this:
The lighting is a bit off because the pictures were taken at night. In the morning you should be able to see that the walls are beige/yellow and the wall decals are gray and yellow. We are very pleased with how it turns out. We had to literally stick each piece on one at a time. It really took patience, and it pays off big time. I love how this looks in our nursery.
We were supposed to also put this bible verse right above the dresser/changing pad, but I was too tired after applying the elephant and the giraffe, so it will have to wait.
Annie has also been doing some work. She put together two baskets; one for the OB’s office and the other one for the hospital nurses. Inside the baskets there are homemade caramel corn, Baby Ruth, double mint gum, Sour Patch Kids, and Hershey’s kisses. She also included a card with a picture we took at our professional photo shoot. I thought that was very thoughtful of her. And it tells you how good she has been feeling, that she has the energy to do all of that.
I have been calling this past weekend a bonus weekend since I really didn’t think that we’d have it all to ourselves. It was quite heavenly. I did a Tar.get run and bought a bunch of essentials. We enjoyed lunch and dinner at two of our favorite restaurants. We even took a nap on Sunday just because we could. The babies are allowing us to enjoy some down time before the craziness begins!
If all goes according to plan, Bob and my mom and I are going to fly out on Wednesday. We will spend some time with Annie and her family on Thursday. T-4 days! We can’t wait to see our babies face-to-face.
