5 Days and Counting!

I'm very excited to get to Feb. 22nd. We go into the hospital by 5:30 am to be prepped for surgery by 7:30. Baby boy should be born within the hour, and I should be back in my room by 9 am. We're trying to prepare for those next few days in the hospital, trying to get schedules for the kids squared away and what not. We've got some awesome friends who are willing to watch our two older kiddos, and we really don't know what we'd do without them. Such blessings!
Other than that, I've been "nesting" as much as I possibly can these past few weeks. Honestly, it doesn't look like it much in the house since we've got to kiddos who like to undo all the progress I seem to make. My lack of energy in these last few days doesn't help either. I'm trying not to get overwhelmed with the amount of progress, or lack there of, on the projects I wanted to get to before baby came. Seriously, though, is it sad I haven't taken down the Christmas lights from around the windows?? I can't get to the boxes they go in so up they've stayed for the past two months.
We've gotten the computer room mostly ready to make the transition down to our den. We're waiting to see if we'll have easy access to internet down there, as Dylan may have to run wires, or call our provider to run them for us. Not too much is left in there once we cleaned it up a couple weeks ago. I think I took out 2 large bags of trash, filled our recycle bin to the brim and made a donation pile of stuff I knew we probably wouldn't use again. It's so nice to be able to walk in there!
Once we've moved the computer out, we'll be able to put furniture in there, including our rocker/ottoman set and the crib! Sometime after the baby is born we'll actually paint the room, since there's no way we'll have time for any of that before hand.
We've got his name mostly picked out, but are keeping a couple options on the back burner just in case he doesn't fit his name. The only other major things that need to be done is to find all our newborn clothes and pack the hospital bag. Both of those things will hopefully get done this weekend, along with any major cleaning I decide needs to get done at the last minute! Who knows, I might be up at 1 am cleaning the carpets or dusting the blinds.
Hoping to update one more time before the baby gets here, but don't hold your breath!
