Only 6 weeks left! Ahhh- so crazy, we are counting down weeks not months here. Six weeks seems like no time at all considering how fast my weeks usually seem to go by. I mean, it's already Wednesday. Crunch time I suppose. We are almost done painting the nursery and I just need to find a rug, some curtains and a chair cover that I like and that don't cost a fortune. I tend to have expensive taste and I completely blame that on my mother (thanks Mom)! As far as "stuff" goes, I have everything I need or at least ordered that I wanted to have before she arrives, except the pack n' play which my mother inlaw is buying us. I ordered a few things that I have been putting off today- new tubes and shields for my breast pump(glamorous, huh?), a miracle blanket(our Godsend with Aubs) and a nursing nightgown for the hospital. I'm not usually a nightgown kind of girl but I want to take the hospital gown off as soon as possible and pants/shorts aren't very convenient when you have midwives coming in and checking out your area every 12 hours or so, TMI?
Other than having everything ready, I'm really just trying to mentally prepare for this. Not that I even really think that it's possible to mentally prepare for something like this. I guess like I said before, my biggest worry is how Aubrey is going to handle such a huge change. I hate that I might be the one who is responsible for her feelings getting hurt. I kind of want to delete that last sentence because it sounds so stupid but I really don't know how else to word it. I guess I just have to keep reminding myself that the adjustment period will pass and in the end Aubs won't be able to imagine life without her little sister.
