Guest post from Ohio Mommy

Ohio Mommy is ready for the baby!

Ohio Daddy has been a bit busy lately, so I thought as the Mommy-to-be, I’d try to fill in and write a guest post!

I’m now 37 weeks pregnant and glad to be nearing the end. It gets difficult carrying around an extra 25 lbs. or so!

Ohio Mommy has a person in her belly.

As for preparations, I wouldn’t say we’re “ready,” but we do have some of the items we’ll need when the little one arrives. We have nursery furniture, some clothes and some diapers. The big thing we still need is a car seat, but we’re hoping to have that taken care of this week.

Over the past few weekends, we were lucky enough to have two baby showers! My best friend, Ashly, threw one and my sister, along with my mom, mother-in-law and aunt, hosted another. Both were fun for the girls (I didn’t make the boys suffer through it) and made me realize how much love this little baby already has! She’s also going to look incredibly adorable in her faux fur coat (thanks Tony and Tina!) and sunglasses (thanks Molly!).

Other than taking inventory of what we have and still need, we’re pretty much just waiting for the last few weeks to pass. My plan is to work through the week of our due date (Oct. 6). If all goes according to plan, the baby should be here by the second week of October!

Stay tuned!
