Well – we’re just about there! A little more than five weeks to go and we’ll have a little one in our humble abode! CRAZY! Kalyb is getting more used to the idea of a little sister (although still very verbal about his desire for a brother). We actually ended up moving to a house the first week in December so we have plenty of space now! We spent part of this break getting Kadence’s room relatively organized. We still need to put together her crib which should be arriving any day. But, other than that (and a car seat and stroller which have also been ordered), we are well on our way!
Josiah has been very verbal about his desire to have and hold this little girl since about month four. Just this morning I said, ‘I can’t wait until she gets here’ and Josiah mentioned that was the first time he’d heard me say that. I think I’m just finally feeling ready. The house is coming together, her stuff is ready for the most part, and I’m excited to meet her!
We are looking at changing care providers. We’ve been going to Birth Boot Camp classes (somewhat similar to Bradley Method) and after meeting with the staff at the hospital where I was set to deliver, I just didn’t feel comfortable. We found a birthing center that I really liked, but our instructor is kind of steering us away from there due to the Midwife’s reputation. So we shall see – I’ve got some calls to make to insurance and we have some visits to make. I know it will all work out.
We have LOVED this Christmas break and have spoiled ourselves by just staying home with our family. It has been so CALM and QUIET and RESTFUL. We’ve had several mornings where we’ve all slept in close to 11! (I know, I know – this kind of rest is numbered. So I’m soaking it up!)
Hopefully I can find the time to get on here once or twice more before Kadence’s debut!
