75% of the way there!!!! FINALLY close to the finish line

SO I jumped on to check my stats this morning because I am otally forgetting lately how far along I actually am. It says I am 30 weeks and 1 day pregnant, I have 69 days to go and I am 75% of the way there. I feel like doing cartwheels (not really but that's okay). Now is my time to freak out at the fact that Lilly will arrive in the next 8-10 weeks and she still doesn't have a bedroom to store her things (she has diapers though and that's all that truely matters, right?). I still have a bunch of things to get together and now am freaking a bit.

Oh and last night dh all of a sudden starts bringing up baby names...hello?...she's been Lilly for 4 years now. After me mentioning liking the name Apple he shut it Job done!!

Getting close now! It feels great to be this close, doesn't it?

BTW- I didn't have a room ready for DS until a week before he arrived. But he showed up 5.5 weeks early, so it wasn't ALL my being behind.

Enjoy the last few weeks here before you greet Lilly face to face. This time is so special between mama and babe.

His name is Charlie and he is a handsome guy. To bad the pic was short lived as I was just playing around while trying to get an updated pic of Lilly in my avatar. you can't tell but you can actually see her eye balls staring at you...kinda freaky!!

Ooh! I love dogs, but I like the new pict of Lilly even better!

Doesn't freak me out, but maybe it's because avatars are so tiny. I like that she's looking at the camera, so to speak. You can see her whole face in it. How sweet is that?

It's funny because we already know she has my nose and my dd's cheeks. The pics they did were just so clear (because they were looking for a cleft lip/pallet). The picture is only freaky in person because you can see the actual eye balls not just lids or dark circles, just never seen eye balls in an ultrsound pic before. I started to cry when I seen the picture because instead of looking like an alien she looked just like my dd in her pic so it made it seem more real.

Congrats on being so close to the finish line! Time really starts passing quickly now.
I remember hitting the 99 day mark and thinking "wow, thats still a long time" and now Im staring at the month marker going "whoa, what happened?"

with ds1 we didn't really have a room ready...his clothes were in one of our dressers and his crib was at the end of our bed...changing table between the dresser we were using and the nightstand. we were in a one bedroom apt. this time around we're pretty much ready, but there's still stuff left undone and if dh doesn't get on it he will only think he's seen crabby as of now!!!
