We pretty much chilled after arriving on Saturday evening. Yesterday, they went to church while I took one bed apart, moved it out of my (the guest) room... and put together the daybed we brought. Also went to Babie's R Us for their crib mattress & bedding. Partially rearranged the living room upon our return - then after dinner, they put together the stroller I gave them for the shower.









This morning, Britt took Delilah for her first grooming & these were the results:



While D.dog got groomed, Britt and I rearranged their master bedroom & then went to her OB appointment. I got to meet her awesome doc, and tour the birthing center.





Britt's blood pressure was high at first check (had not happened before) so they waited five minutes & tried it again; was back to normal. She is 1.5 cm dilated and 50% effaced! I told her last night, that we should be packing her hospital bag & the doc confirmed that - LOL

Sounds like a good week you are having. If she is 1.5cm and 50% effaced, you sure you are going home?? Her little one will be here before you know it.

She'll love that car seat/stroller combo. My kids have that one and it is so easy to use.

I know Karen! I told Britt, I hate the six hour drive (it's just two hrs. too long) and I don't want to turn around and come right back.... so better plan accordingly - LOL

Gals can walk around for weeks at 1-2 cm.... but ya never know.

Doc said if the BP is high next week, she's going to order bed rest. Said if she goes into labor from here on out.... she would not try to stop it. Even the doc said she doubted she'd make it til June.

We tried to chill a bit today (well Britt - miss swollen feet) needs to anyway - LOL

She watched Asher & he is quite entertaining...... she sorted all of her IL shower gifts and I washed bebe clothes and bedding. We did a bit of work in the nursery, mostly just deciding where furniture will go & unpacking the necessities.







Little craft I made for baby Jeremiah's room - as seen on Pinterest - te he





When she took Asher home, we went by Big Lots, Tuesday Morning & Walmart. Got an area rug for the babies room, curtain rods, drapes, etc.

AC went out while we were gone & it was miserable upon our return 7 pm and I was cooking dinner, sweating my buns off while Britt put her swollen feet up Finally it's cooled down now & we're all about to crash.

More nursery work tomorrow.

The safety pin art is cute. Love her green dresser. We're going to get confused now when you talk about Jeremiah.

LOL I know Jen... I've asked Britt how we're gonna know which we're talking about. She said she'll probably refer to her bro as Uncle 'Miah. I have a feeling I'll say bebe 'Miah for my grandboy.

Jeremiah could just be 'Miah. I'm sure a nickname will come about.

Let's see... it actually went well with Britt watching the two kids yesterday. She said the 11/yo girl was on her best behavior because I was here

I put frozen chicken breast & salsa in the crock pot in the a.m. and did a little laundry as well. When the little guy laid down for his nap, I ventured out on my own to do some shopping; which was nice, except it was chilly & raining. But I returned some dresser handles that didn't look right. Went to TJ Max and Target.... got a shower gift for Sunday & more groceries.

We hung a new rod & curtains in the nursery, then their friend Wes came over to cut the carpet (rug) to fit into the closet.



In the meantime, I had shredded the chicken in salsa, and we had tortilla rolls for dinner - it was delish! After dinner, miss energizer bunny Britt, wanted to do her DIY headboard (as seen on Pinterest) LOL

Mostly she directed me.... but between the three of us, we got it whipped out and put in place in no time. Turned out quite nicely.

aww - thanks Steph! I was not a fan of the whole "owl thing" until of course, she chose this bedding (LOL) now I think it's kinda cute. The bright green chest, that Mark and I got at an auction for $10, basically determined the nursery colors. Britt redid the large grey dresser herself (five mo. preggers) and we've just chosen the hardware for it and may pick those up today.

Mallory made the rag-flag (that's what I call it) for her IL shower (it's hanging over the closet) and we got that large rug at Big Lots for $49.99! We have a tree decal which matches the bedding & will probably put that up tomorrow. Also ordered a vinyl of Jeremiah 29:11 and will put that above the crib

I'll try to get pics of the final details before I leave on Monday.

so happy to come here and see you are soon to be a grand mommy! My grand daughter is now two, we moved in her town just so I could see her most days and babysit whenever the opportunity arises... Get ready for a life changing event. Many have tried to explain what it is and yet there are no words for it.... so happy for you all!
