30 Weeks

It's here...the final 10 weeks. I cannot believe I am at the point where I can say I'm 30 weeks. It seems strange saying your in the 30's. This whole pregnancy has seemed to go by fast and slow all at the same time. It's crazy to think that at this time last year I wasn't thinking to much about babies, but of course now, that is all our talk seems to be about.

According to the pregnancy book, Olivia Kate is about 17 inches long and weighs about 3 lbs. It's crazy to think she weighs more now than my brother did when he was born. It's even crazier to think we only have ten weeks left. I am in no way trying to rush her, but I am so excited for her to get here. I cannot wait to hold her in my arms. We want her here but praying she stays there until she's ready to come out. We just want a healthy baby girl.

We're wrapping things up in preparing her room and our shower is a weekend away. There are a lot of people coming that I haven't seen in forever and I am so excited to get to see everybody. Of course, I also cannot wait to see what Olivia Kate gets. I am anxious to make sure we have everything we need for when she gets here. Right now my main concern is not labor or anything, I'm more worried about having everything we need. But, like my mom keeps reminding me, it will all work out.

I owe a great big thanks to my friend Amy. When she came over to help paint last Thursday she brought me three boxes of clothes and diapers. She just had her daughter Matalie last March and luckily had a bunch of winter stuff for 0/3 months. Everything Matalie wears is adorable and luckily since our friend Sheena found out she is having a boy, the clothes were past down to Olivia Kate. Thanks to Amy, Olivia Kate will be a stylish baby!

These are just the clothes that Amy brought me!!!
The rubbermaid container at top is full of 6-12 month clothes. This girl already has more clothes than me!

I have gone crazy with little boy clothes. I keep telling my husband that he better be glad we're not having a girl because I would have been even more out of control. Baby clothes are irrisitable and I'm glad to see someone else who has tons of baby clothes like I do for mine!!!
