Who Has Time to Blog?

The last two weeks have been very busy. Leslie went to the Dr. about two weeks ago and the Dr. was a littler nervous because all signs were pointing to Leslie having the baby early. At that point she was 32 almost 33 weeks so the Dr. wasn't too concerned about the baby being born too early, but she really wanted Leslie to try to make it until 36 weeks. With that being said Leslie is on Unofficial Bed Rest. She is still allowed to go to work and move around a little, but the Dr. really wants her to stay off her feet as much as possible, which means after 3 years of marriage I have officially been house broken.

Leslie does not like being told she can't do anything, but I have been doing the cleaning, laundry,cooking, grocery shopping, and all that other fun house stuff. She is almost 35 weeks and still no baby so we are doing things right so far. We really want to get to 36 or even 37 weeks and then at that point Leslie will continue to move around a whole lot and try to get that baby out. At that point I will need to go on bed rest.

We have had two baby showers in the last two weekends and our friends and family have been very generous. We now feel like we are ready to bring this baby into the world. We have the nursery ready to go, the car seats, stroller, hand carrier, bouncer, rocker, pack and play, high chair, bottles, pumps, clothes, burp cloths, toys, baby monitor, and 1,000 other things that will hopefully make this little baby happy. Our house used to be neat and organized, but now we are struggling to find places to put everything! I thought we had a big house until recently.

We have our hospital bags packed, and hopefully have a good game plan for when the day comes. Even though we are trying to keep that baby in it is possible that Baby Sterling could come in the next few days, although I don't think he will. I predict early August, but who knows? Knowing our luck it will be September 1st and Leslie will still be pregnant. I will try to update the blog as much as possible, but with me being a domestic husband, it's hard to find the time.
