Today is my first day of maternity leave at work. It sure was nice not having to get up and drive an hour to Kirkland this morning. I still woke up at my normal time, though. I still had a few things to do today and I don't know when I would get another chance to do them. Who knows...I could go into labor tomorrow.
I finally feel like the nursery is ready. My mom and I went out to get the last things on my list. This was the first time she and I went baby shopping together. While working I only had Saturdays free and that day she has church duties which take up the whole day. It was really nice going together.
I've decided to go back to my original due date: April 3rd, but I have a doctor's appointment on Wednesday at which point we will find out when this baby wants to come out and play.

It's getting down to crunch time. A little over two weeks to go and I am not quite ready. My co-workers threw a surprise shower for me and I also had one with my family and friends. This baby sure has been spoiled! Chris and I are have been so blessed to know such great people. Thank you everyone!
One of our biggest gifts we received was the travel system that my work bought. I've got it assembled and practiced pushing around the stroller to get the feel of it. Being tall I wanted to make sure I didn't have to lean over any to push it. (Don't laugh). Now I just need to figure out the base and the carrier and how to strap it into my car. I wasn't old enough to drive when my nieces and nephews were babies so I don't have experience in that department. Something I did notice the stroller is super heavy. I don't know how mothers lift this thing in and out of their cars.
