Preparing for the Big Day

Although Stella's official due date is not until February 17th, now that she has passed the 37 week mark, she is considered full-term and able to come at any time. With Porter coming 12 days before his due date, the chances are pretty high that Stella will also make an early appearance.

Getting Ready for Stella's Arrival

Whether Stella comes early or not, Brian and I have been working diligently over the last several weeks to make sure we're ready for her arrival. At this point, her nursery is complete, her clothes are washed, folded, and in her dresser, her portable crib is set-up in the master bedroom, her car carrier is installed, her swing and bouncer have fresh batteries and are ready for use, the laundry is done, the house is in order, the blog has been updated, Porter is packed for a stay at his grandparents, our hospital bags are packed and in the car, and our Akron General pre-registration paperwork is complete. We're ready! Now we just need our little girl!
