Baby Prep to Do: Hospital bag is packed, car seat is installed, and nursery is complete…so this week there is not much to do.
Highlight of the week: I somehow managed to get Tim to clean the baseboards in the entire house…my nesting is rubbing off on him. Is it weird I feel so relaxed now that I have clean baseboards??

Anything else worth mentioning?  Started my weekly check-ups…as of today I am a big fat ZERO centimeters dilated so looks like we still have a few more weekly blogs ahead.

Side table from Garden Ridge and we replaced the knobs. Lamp ruffle shade was made by Amie Taylor...love it!
