Still Waiting...but now with an end in sight

Well, I went to the doctor's office today and he said that I was 1 cm dilated and that things seem to be progressing. I was excited to hear that! He said that if by Friday she has not come, we will do an ultrasound to check her size and the level of amniotic fluid. At that point we will discuss the possibility of being induced. Soo, we shall see!

Here are some of the things that I have been doing around the house while waiting (let's just say I have been NESTING!)

Bags are packed (except for last minute things we'll have to throw in)

I labeled everything in my pantry --haha I kind of went nuts - but it was so much fun!
All of Maddy's laundry is is washed and folded.
I baked coconut macaroons to freeze for the holidays when family comes.
Brownie cookies...
Chocolate chip, pecan Coffee cake for Tim (he said it would help him through the end of his semester :)
Stuffed shells to freeze for a meal after the baby
Presents are all wrapped and mailed (to family in PA)
The tree is up and decorated!
The stockings are hung by the chimney with care... in hopes that sweet Maddy soon will appear!

Your tree looks beautiful! I always like the white lights but Nate likes the colored ones. I'm so glad that you had this time before Maddy comes so you can get organized!
