And now, posted by popular demand, pics of Taylor's nursery...complete with glider, crib bedding, stuffed animals, musical mobiles, and even a little pillow for Buster... Now all we need is Baby Taylor, and maybe some pictures for the frames!
(I apologize for the quality...I'm still trying to figure out our camera)
So...what do you think? Time for baby? My body is starting to show signs that it is most definitely time for baby to join the world. I am still working at LSUHSC. I plan to continue waddling in to work until next Friday, at which time I will go on leave. So, my evenings currently consist of an immediate change into pj's and then parking my big belly on the sofa with my feet propped up.
And it looks like we won't have to wait all the way until October 11. That's right, folks, Taylor and I are currently scheduled for a cesarean section on Monday, October 5th! Of course, that's assuming Taylor is still breech come October 5! And, also assuming that she doesn't decide to join the outside world a little early! So mark your calendars...Taylor's tentative birthday is October 5, 2009!!
So, I know that everyone likes to think that their significant other makes the greatest dad in the world, but I think my hubby takes the cake. He is already doing his part to make sure everything is in order and ready for baby Taylor...cleaning house, hanging frames in the nursery, and folding onesies. And then, yesterday, I walked in to find Ray ironing a few of Taylor's little dresses. I thought it was adorable! On another note, I have had several people ask if my belly button has popped. Well, Ray and I have decided that I could set a record on the world's deepest belly button. That's right folks, at 36 weeks, my belly button still has not popped!! Crazy!?!?
Buster and Taylor have become dear friends. Every morning, at the sound of Taylor's first peep, Buster trots over to her bedroom door, waiting patiently for me to open it. He loves being the first to greet her when she wakes up. Taylor loves hugging Buster and rubbing his back. They play tug-a-war with toys, share treats with one another, and, occasionally, cuddle up together in the castle. Buster has come a long way these past few years, and, I think, he finally considers Taylor to be part of the family. :)
