Are you ready???

So, tomorrow is the big day....6am check-in to be induced. The biggest question I've gotten in the last few days is "Are you ready?" My answer is usually no Ü...I mean...can you ever be really ready to give BIRTH. A calmness has finally settled over me today. And I think several factors have contributed to that feeling.
First and foremost, I've been praying a lot...and I have a feeling that there are a lot of prayers going up on my behalf, too (esp since most everyone knows how petrified I have been!).

But also....because she is here:
And because we have all the material aspects taken care of. We've recieved so many gifts and so many clothes from family and friends!
I have his clothes all organized by size....just a big of my OCD showing thru, but it makes me feel comfortable! And now I know how much of each size I have, which is uber-nice since poor little dude doesn't have a nursery and we are busting out of the seams of this house, so no closet space either!
I got a sweet new diaper bag from Hot Mama Handbags. My cousing Ashley recently bought a bag from this chick and I was inspired! It's ginormous!!
Of course, I have no idea what to put into it! Which means, I've been the mom of 'older' toddlers for a bit too long. What the heck do you bring to the hospital?! Eek. So, I've shoved most everything in here...just in case! Seriously...you mom's who've just had this hospital experience...what did you forget that you wished you had?
I even found the time to do a bit of tie dying. Cause nothing is more cathartic than a bit of color.
A few things need to be done to feel completely "ready"....such as putting his bed together. I love this Little Hoot collection from Target and can't wait to see it all set up!
And my toes are still funky...but this should be remedied in about 2 hours, when mom and I head to the nail spa to get a bit of pampering! Ü Can't wait to see these yucky toes GONE!!

So, there you go...Yes I'm ready, but No, I'm totally not. I'm completely praying for an 'easy' experience tomorrow...I'll take a birth like Aube's. I'm just excited to meet him, I keep seeing his face in my mind's eye and he's just lovely people. Just lovely.

You are going to do amazing!! Have James give you a blessing if you need more comfort. And I don't think you really need much for the baby at the hospital. They provide diapers and those rags to wipe him with. I think you only need his take home outfit and another blanket if you want to put him in a different one than the one they give you. Oh, and don't forget his car seat:-) I'm so excited for you and I can't wait to see his precious face!! Good luck!!
