Other preparation activities taken care of: Cora has officially moved into Louisa's room, although she still naps in her old crib for it's quietness and darkness. But at night they are sharing a room, which has created two giggly sisters. Closets are organized and the baby has tons of wonderful hand-me-down clothes from my sister, Sarah and friend Amanda, who both had two boys and feel fairly certain that two kids is plenty!

Today I bought little gifts for Peter to give to the girls and a "zero" candle so we can all have a little birthday celebration together at the hospital. Speaking of celebrations and preparations, Nate and I had a wonderful double date with our friends Brad and Karen on Friday night and then on Saturday night, my friend Tina hosted a "pre-baby girls' night" for me. There were six of us and it just so happened that five were pregnant. The only non-pregnant one was gracious in letting us talk about pregnancy and birth before and after watching and laughing at a pregnancy-centered romantic comedy, Away We Go.
We're ready for you, littlest one!
