Complete Vintage Cradle

We're down to the final two and a half weeks until my due date. I still can't believe I'm this close to delivery day. This pregnancy has zipped by so quickly, I almost feel like I need a bit more time. I said almost! We've been so preoccupied with house stuff and the possibility of moving, that it was hard to get into baby-readiness mode. Now that we know we'll be staying right here for at least another month or so, I've switched modes and have begun preparing for the arrival of our sweet baby.

Preparing this time around is quite different from our previous births. Rather than packing a bag and thinking through what I'll need to take to the hospital, I'm setting things up for our first home birth. Yesterday, we did some rearranging in our bedroom to accommodate the cradle and a table for birth supplies. I also washed all the baby linens and the car seat cover. I still need to pull out the neutral clothes and get those washed, but other than that, we're ready.....I think!

For those of you who may be interested in keeping up with the progress of my labor, I am going to try to live blog the event. I thought it was very cool to read the labor/births of Stephanie and Kim C while they were happening, so I'll do my best to post as much as possible, or at least have others post for me! This will be really great for family and friends who are far away. I'll zip out an email when I go into labor with the blog link. We'll see what happens.....

If you think of us, please keep us in prayer as we approach the big day. We thank God in advance for this gift and pray that He will allow us to have a safe and wonderful delivery at home!

  1. We've been praying for your house situation! How is it looking for getting the new house?

  2. Kim, so far there have been several delays on the new house, which has been to our advantage since we have not yet sold our house. The new one won't be completed until mid Jan.

    So......we're still just patiently waiting for a buyer.

  3. Wow, how exciting to be getting ready for your first homebirth. This may be the first of many! I will keep you in my prayers!

  4. I'll certainly be praying for a quick and easy homebirth, and anxious to hear about it. Give Janet my love!

  5. I will look forward to reading about the labor...what a blessing for us so far away! Love you
