The waiting game...2 weeks to go

We woke up this morning to a blanket of snow. It actually started snowing late yesterday afternoon. We haven't had a decent snow since Dec. '04 so that means the meteorologists are having a hay day! Sadie loves the snow and was very frisky.

We got another awesome surprise on Friday. Jeremy's work gave him a surprise baby shower. He really had no clue. His boss has him pegged. He gave the baby a pair of overalls with little tools all in the pockets...a mini tape measure, mini screw driver, pencil, etc. It was so funny! Jeremy loved it so much that they are currently hanging on the doorknob of the nursery closet. He works with some wonderful people!

On Saturday Jeremy and I had a date! Woo Hoo! For Christmas and for a baby gift, Leigh and Chad gave us a gift certificate to a really nice restaurant in town, L&N Wine, Bar & Bistro. Although I didn't partake in any wine (and they have one of the best wine lists in town), we both had a wonderful meal over great conversation. I think it will be a long time before we will have another night like this. Thanks Leigh and Chad for a wonderful gift!

The nursery is just about finished. We hung shelves that Jeremy made this weekend. The nightstand received its final coat of finish tonight. There are some things I still want to put on the wall, but that probably won't happen until after she is born. We are going to put her name in block letters on the wall (can't do that yet since we don't have her name) and framed pictures of her on the other wall. I'll post pictures soon. Just tonight when we were eating dinner Jeremy said, "I just like to sit in the nursery." I asked him if it was because it was new and he said, "No because of what it is...her room." We both get excited thinking about her and all the memories that will be made in that room!

Some lovely comments said to me lately. Once again, what am I supposed to say in response?:
*Wow, you're huge, you must be due soon!
*You have to have that baby soon!
*You're still pregnant, huh?

Still no change in the labor and delivery department...literally. I have had the same thing told to me the past three Fridays. I am hoping that this Friday will be different. We shall see. Jeremy's sister predicts the baby will be born on the 20th (her daughters are the 10th and 30th so it is pretty appropriate) and his mom says the 21st because it is a full moon. The due date is Feb. 27th...2 weeks! Any predictions?

Who knows when she we will get here? Jeremy and I are getting so excited and anxious to meet our daughter!

Right after Jeremy walked in. He was truly surprised.

It has been amazing to watch your journey. I don't know what I would do without your updates to guide me for where I should be next. I can't believe how fast it has gone for you. This little girl is going to be so loved. I think you look wonderful. My prediction... Feb. 26. I think you will be one day early. Enjoy these last few days!! Praying for a safe delivery and healthy baby girl!
