Earth to baby.

OK, little baby. So, It's completely up to you, but-no pressure-we are ready. You might like to know that your waiting family has the house prepared for you.

We've washed your bedding and organized all of your things.

There are fresh towels in the pantry and plenty of burp cloths.

And the rumors you may have heard about our bathroom/boy's locker room, well, your sweet daddy took care of it. It's sparkling, love.

Babysitters (and back-ups) are on call.

Hospital bag is packed.

We might even have a few names picked out, as options. But dad won't tell so don't even bother asking.

Since mom has been jumping on the trampoline and going for extended walks, but you still don't seem that interested in coming soon, we've even decided to liven up the house with welcoming decor.

And your brothers, to help you feel more at ease, have taken to running around in their "birthday suits." You need not worry about being under-dressed, dear one.

Like I wrote before, new baby, the decision is entirely yours.

Come when you feel ready. Feel ready soon, please?

We're excited, to say the least.

PS- I am loving this old post from right before we found out if our third baby was a boy or girl. The suspense is totally killing us this time; I don't think we could wait to find out the sex again! While shopping for decorations, I couldn't help picking up a little blue. But that may just be habit, who knows. Whatever you are, baby, we love you already.

I don't think I could wait to know the sex of the baby. I am not that patient. I cant wait to find out what you guys end up having. I wish you luck in getting through this last part of pregnancy. Hang in there!!
