The Countdown!!

I just have to point out that the countdown has now dwindled to THIRTY-TWO DAYS until Caleb's due date! Ahhhh!!! :) I never got too antsy and anxious counting down to Olivia, but I am absolutely dying for this little boy to hurry up and get here. I lay awake in bed last night thinking of all of the de-junking and organizing I have to do that I know won't get touched after he comes. So today while Olivia was at preschool the "Cleaning Fairy" (aka - me) went on a mad cleaning spree and got both of the kid's bedrooms spic and span and ready for baby. I was a mad woman - sorting and tossing and cleaning - I think I accomplished more in this one morning than I have in the last three weeks. (Sidenote: how on earth does a little girl accumulate so much STUFF in just four years of life? I threw away a large trashbag and two big boxes of stuff that she will never even miss because all of her drawers and bins are still plenty full. At least for now it's organized.) I just have to finish binding her quilt (yes Arizona friends - the same quilt I started cutting out and working on two years ago...) and then her room will be finished. Finally! Caleb's room is a work in progress, but it is slowly coming together. Even Cameron and my cute little sister got in on the cleaning action today and helped get things ready. (Poor Andrea - thinking she'd have a nice relaxing day at big sister's house and then ending up vacuuming and doing laundry. Thanks sweetie!)

Emily! I can't believe it's getting close. I hate the end, it seems to take forever. I am so excited for your little boy. Can't wait!!!
love, Rach
PS. Isn't it amazing how much you can get done when you WANT to clean??

I can't believe you are so close to delivering (although I'm sure it still forever away for you). You should post pics of your kids rooms. I would love to see them.
