37 weeks... And so the waiting game begins!

"I can't eat, I can't sleep, but I can do a great impression of a beached whale"

 Yesterday, I was exactly 37 weeks along.  Hannah is "allowed" to come any time now! Words can't express how happy I am about that!  Ryan and I can't wait to meet our little girl!  We're also enjoying the little time we have left where it's just the 2 of us.  We spend less time watching tv & more time just talking and doing things together.  We go on dates atleast once a week.  Last Friday night we went to Buy Buy Baby and got a book and a belly casting kit.  We're trying to find time to do the cast, but with Ryan's crazy work schedule & us trying to get our house in order and get all our pre-Hannah projects done, it's been hard!  We also went to Build-A-Bear and built Hannah a bear!

Meet Banana.

In other news, I'm in the process of packing our hospital bag.  By "packing", I mean that I have little piles of things everywhere in our house.  In Hannah's room. In the den. In our bedroom. It's stressing me out like you wouldn't believe.  Since I've gotten to the stage in my pregnancy where I can't do much without having to sit down & rest, I've lightened up on my "neat freak-ness" A LITTLE.  But only because I don't have much of a choice.  Where it used to take me a day to really clean the house, it now takes most of the week.  Because it takes so much longer for messes to get cleaned up in our house, I'm more impatient about things just being left laying around the house - so my piles of things to go to the hospital are beyond annoying.  My grandma is coming into town to play Bunco tomorrow and is staying with us, which gives me even more of a reason to get my house back in order & get those little piles dealt with!

Our "To Do Before Baby" list is getting smaller & smaller!  We just have a few things left! We still have to:
  1. Pack Hospital Bag
  2. Deep Clean House - Thank you nesting instinct.
  3. Get Rocking Chair from Ryan's grandma
  4. Fix drawer in nursery
  5. Get extra base for carseat
  6. Install carseat base - We haven't looked at the base once since we got our travel system.  We were too excited about all the other stuff!  Hopefully it's not too hard to install!
  7. Clean out Ryan's truck
I also have a whole list (and so does Ryan) of things that we want done in the house (and outside in Ryan's case) before she comes, but it's not a big deal if we don't have them done.

Random question -
I bought 2 hanging ferns for our front porch the other day.  I, for some reason, thought we had hooks already on our porch on which to hang said ferns.  We do not.  What do I need to get? Are they hard to find? Where do I get them?  These poor ferns are currently sitting on my porch "floor".

More random -
I'e had this song stuck in my head for 2 days. Thought I'd share it with everyone.  Enjoy!
