No Easter Baby, but Christ is Risen!

The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: 'He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.' Now I have told you."

So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. "Greetings," he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me." Matthew 28: 5-10

Nesting? Really? Yep.

37.5 weeks

I've arrived at that time in the pregnancy when I can truly say, "any day now! or maybe 4 more weeks?!" There really is no way to tell. I'm having lots of "practice contractions," but those are also known as "false labor." For now, I feel fine - not too uncomfortable and not too anxious. Hypnobirthing has really been awesome - it has taught me to relax.

This whole notion of nesting doesn't really seem to apply to me because I feel like I've been nesting (which includes cleaning, organizing and checking things off lists) since I was born. BUT, that being said, I can't deny that I felt extra satisfied this past weekend when I got through my list of things to do which included:

1. Scrub soap build-up off shower rack
2. Install car seat
3. Plant Christmas tree (we got a live one that has been sitting in its pot, turning brown)
4. Switch glass doors with screen doors (it was 80 degrees on Sunday!)
5. Sweep front porch
6. Bring outdoor furniture down from the attic
7. Wash newborn outfits, baby blankets, and crib sheets
8. Hang shelf for diapers and wipes
9. Buy crib mattress

So now Baby Bosscher can really come anytime because the car seat is installed and the nursery is ready!
