Patiently (or not) Waiting

Today is the DUE DATE!! But still no baby Vuong :(


Over the last week since my mom has been in town we have completed the following "nesting" activities (with Son's help too):


Moved all furniture & cleaned floors
Dusted - everything!
Re-organized and cleaned out pantry & fridge
Bought & hung wall & other decorative items in the house
Weeded front yard flower beds & planted new flowers
Re-organized cabinets in bathrooms & scrubbed every square inch of the bathrooms
Bought new throw pillows for our bedroom
5 million loads of laundry - Son & I have never had so many clean clothes in our lives!
Found laundry basket for baby room & sewed new lining out of matching nursery fabric
Painted, framed & hung wall decorations in baby room
Found & hung mirror in baby room over changing table
Covered nursing stool in baby room
Installed car seat base in both cars
Re-organized baby closet & assembled baby monitor & bath tub
Visited Collin's school so my mom could see where he will be staying
Gone shopping multiple times - at least 1x per day!


The only problem is that we have pretty much cleaned every inch of the house, bought/hung up every type of decorative item that I had been putting off getting for the house, and done anything we could possibly think of in the baby's room...so now that we are officially ready, Collin is still not cooperating.


I am thinking about even resorting to going to work for a little while tomorrow! Seriously - this is getting desperate!!


Here are some pictures of what we have been up to lately...

Our friends Jeff & Rachel stopped by on Easter Sunday! We were hoping that baby Collin would be here for them to meet, but they will be back in town again in May.
Yes, I realize that I look like total crap in this picture - but I had a terrible migrane the night before & only slept from about 8am until noon. I was super upset that I wasn't able to make it to church on Easter Sunday!




Here are Son & Beau relaxing after a hard day of work!
Son & De-de hanging the pictures that we painted for Collin's room - they did the hard work & I just sat on the floor saying "a little to the left, no, to the right".
Car seat installation - Son reading the directions (only because I asked him too - hey, Collin's life may depend on it!) & of course Beau had to help us. Then the finished installation in my car.
I have another doctor's appointment tomorrow afternoon - so hopefully we will see more progress then! Big numbers, please!

Be glad you are just now finishing...Ellie was due on a Wednesday, and since we were praying she would come the weekend before we had everything finished by then...so I had about a week and a half with just waiting! I know it's miserable! I feel your pain...or lack of it so far ;c)

Jeff and I were taking bets in the car on the way home. He guessed you would have Collin tomorrow at 534pm. I guessed Thursday at 1230pm. Can't wait for him to arrive!

Hi Julie
Just wanted you to know I was thinking and praying for you. Try to rest up because after Collin gets here - you won't get near as much sleep as you crave. Give your mom a hug for me!
