and so we wait in anticipation

We have been preparing for 'lil miss' to come and I failed to post any updates so here are a few of our first painting days a long while back. We decided on a khaki wall and pink border (not pictured yet).
We had some great helpers...Honey came one night

Alex was really wanting to help
...or just pushed the roller around the house
The room is coming along. I still have little things to deal with and finish up like the curtains (don't get me started). I will post the latest soon, promise.

I went to the doctor on Friday and had an ultrasound. I was very very excited for this. One, I get to see our precious lil baby and two, I find out if my fluid levels are normal or not. This is important because with Alex I had high fluid and that is why we induced. Even though it is not a good thing to have, it was nice to have the birth all planned out. So, I was just anxious to know what would be the plan- would I have to wait and have a "normal" labor or induce. So, the good news, my fluid levels are normal. Bad news, now we wait. This makes me so nervous. All that good stuff like "Where will I be?" "When will it happen?" "How fast will it happen?" I am torn because this will be more exciting than Alex's planned birth, but it was sooo nice to know and plan it all out.
I am just ready to have this big girl out! They estimated that she is already over 6 lbs (and I say, growing by the minute! eek!). With one month till my due date, I really hope she decides to join us a little early! or I might cry! :)
We did get to see her quite well...makes me all the more anxious to hold her in my arms.
oh, and we think we have a name picked out....hallelujah! because this has been a struggle! But no telling ;)

Little Miss Isaacson is such a cutie! Those 3D pictures are always amazing. I know the waiting is hard but try to enjoy the last few weeks with just Alex. Can't wait to hear the name!

She is already super cute!! You guys are so good being able to keep the name a secret. Hopefully your labor will be as quick as mine but with drugs :)

Brandy said...

How exciting! She'll be here in no time :)

Jenny said...

She is darling! And oh cassie, I am so excited for you! I have been thinking so much about exactly what we were doing a year ago and as much as it is nice to have it all planned out, if I had to do it again, I would do it just as it happened, really, it's much more fun this way, you will be SOOO fond of these moments you couldn't predict, I cherished them!

How fun you got to see her so many times through ultrasounds! But I know you can't wait for the real deal :) And let the countdown begin! I know mine has :)

What an AWESOME ultrasound picture! Those are so neat. And Lauren is totally Lindsay, I'm convinced :) I think when we go out in public, people think that she belongs to her. She looks nothing like me, it's kind of neat, ha! I can't wait to see pictures of the finished baby room.

I agree with Jenny, looking back and thinking my water broke in a restaurant... oh the memories! We always get a good laugh when we drive past Pappadeaux!
You will love the memories it brings... Can't wait, can't wait!!
