Caroline Paige is coming

So I have a scheduled c-section tomorrow. I will be going in at 9 am and come home a few days later with a precious baby girl. Hopefully bringing baby no. 2 into the mix won't be too hard. Luke likes babies so far, but he also really likes Mommy's attention. So good luck to me and here's to a good night's sleep.

This Valentines Day went pretty well. Luke made Daddy a valentine (coloring a page and adding stickers, until he decided to repeatedly peel the stickers off.) I got Greg some chocolates and some zhu zhu pets with battle armor, is for fun. He got me some dark chocolate truffles and a little hello kitty toy. We gave Luke some little trucks and a fireman costume. I'm pretty sure I've mentioned that he is obsessed with firemen. What a cute little valentine!

Baby Shower

Last night I had a baby shower thrown me by some friends in the ward. First of all, it was at La Madaleine, one of my favorite restaurants. So many people showed up and Caroline is really set up with the cutest outfits. I was excited to receive so many dresses and bows! They did an activity which everyone made a wish for Caroline and/or Mommy about the incoming newborn. Basically I got to hear 15 friends say nice things about me, wishes of good mother daughter relationships, hopes for rest and everything going smoothly. I have attended one shower before that they did this same activity, but it is a classic. People don't get sick of hearing good things wished upon them or nice things said about them. Thank you everyone for coming!

I made this bow holder and it is basically filled up already. The main reason is because Lesley Larson alerted me to Halo Heaven's black friday event and I stocked up. In my defense, I had just learned that I was having a girl and this is how I acted upon it. Oh yeah, and I got the stuff at a good price.
This is me at 37 weeks. I was at the OBGYN's office yesterday and she asked if I was feeling pressure. I was like, heck yeah, and then she said that the baby was head down and descended all the way down. Then again, I wasn't dilated at all, so right now it looks like I will just be feeling pelvic "pressure" until my c-section Feb. 22. Awesome.
