Getting Close Now

Thursday, March 12, 2009
Wholly Smokes it is getting down the crunch time for the new baby to show up. However, we are sitting on our hands when it comes to getting ready for the new baby.

I've been getting Alyce's new room ready so we can move Alyce out of the nursery. I've been painting the walls Purple Whisper or as I call it pastel purple. There will be new trim, outlets, and switches too. I remodeling the bathroom too.

Mommy has been getting ready for the baby where she can. Being 35 weeks pregnant makes it hard to do anything physical. But Mommy found all of the old baby bottles in the basement so we can clean them and she has been going through Alyce's baby clothes picking out the gender neutral and temperature appropriate clothes.

We've been getting Alyce ready for her new brother by reading her a book every night called I'm a Big Sister Now. She gets a kick out of it. Every time I say "big sister" while reading the book Alyce giggles and says "sister". I also ask her if she wants a baby brother and she responds with an uh huh.

We are still hoping to get Alyce into her new room by the time the baby shows up. While it isn't a necessity it would be nice to only clear one hurdle at a time.
