Countdown Continues

Well ladies and gentlemen... the countdown continues. We had our 36 week check-up this past Wednesday and were told that I was well on my way to the big day as I was dilated 2 cm and 80% effaced... surprising news since I am yet to have a single contraction (braxton-hicks or otherwise). This news sent me into frantic nesting mode as I now found myself pressed to get Luke/Landyn's room in order (which was a complete disaster thanks to our amazing baby shower last weekend), wash every baby item I own and organize my kitchen. Thankfully, I was able to get everything completed and will probably now be not only anxious but bored as well until the baby arrives. :) As many have requested, here are some pictures of the nursery, now in a complete state. The lighting is kind of wierd as I had to keep the blinds shut in order to avoid wierd shadows... but hopefully you can get the idea. There are also a couple of pictures of the gorgeous snow we had this week (I know... bizarre!), my MCA baby shower as well as my most recent "belly shot". An enlarged photo of me and my mom that Angela had hanging up in the McKinney Performaing Artc Center Gallery (where my MCA shower took place)
