a little update from me... ** I added some pictures :)
Well I now have less than a month until I meet this little baby! I am very excited and I think everything is pretty much ready! We redid the guest bed and bathroom for the birth since they are downstairs and it will be quieter for the sleeping kiddos. I have scrounged up a bag of baby girl stuff and a bag of baby boy stuff (pretty lame I already got rid of almost everything...) I had the midwife over on Tuesday for our home visit and that was really nice and exciting!

On a less perky note I currently have a sinus infection I had to get antibiotics for today :( never fun but hopefully they work quickly, I have already been sick for a week.

I also had to fire the photographer I was planning to use for my birth :( she had a hard time getting usable images in my maternity session because of the dim lighting. I have had the last two babies at home with candle light only so dim light will 99.9% be a factor and I don't really know her ability to use a "bounce-flash" since she has never used one at the births she has done. I didn't want her taking pictures and me being concerned that she wasn't getting the shots, I just really wouldn't have felt comfortable with here there.

We contacted the woman who took our photos last time at the birth and she is excited to do it again, however she will be gone from March 8-14th and I am due on the 15th. I feel such a great sense of relief knowing I am not going to have the other photographer there that I would rather risk not having anyone there. Since both of the other kids have been about a week past the due date I am pretty sure she will be back before anything gets too exciting.

Anyhow that's where I am at and again I can't wait to meet this busy little baby!

I wanted to add some pictures of the photo session I did with my husband :)
(None of the photos from the photographer were printable) :(

Congrats on getting everything together! That stinks about the photog issue but hopefully your other choice will make it to the birth!
I have just over a month and can't wait to meet my boy! We have pretty much everything together as well - just waiting on our shower for the last few things and the pool to be delivered in a couple weeks

Yay for getting everything together! I am sorry about the photographer situation, but at least you have a good chance of having someone there you know you are comfortable with.

I'm barely pregnant and already itching to get everything ready, I won't even get to meet with my midwife until June!

The waiting game is so hard! I am very glad I had time with this one though, it has been quite a process (emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical).

Your pictures are beautiful!! I'm trying to figure out the photography thing this time... it feels a little weird to go all out for this baby when we didn't have the knowledge and resources to do the same for our first. I wonder if anyone else feels that way?

I feel like each pregnancy is a completely unique experience. I have two very scary looking photos of during the birth of my first, then I took all the pictures after she was born and being assessed right next to me. I don't regret not having a photographer there because I didn't know what to expect and I just wanted to be as comfortable as I could.

Your photos are gorgeous! Sorry you had issues with your photographer. I would have hired someone else too. Our photographer did an amazing job and I cherish the pictures we have from dd's birth.
