preparing for BABY: part 2

These last few days I've been on a roll! 
I don't think I've ever been on the move so much in my life, and here's why:
I'm trying to finish EVERYTHING on my baby/Christmas/life to-do list in the hopes that my body will realize that all is taken care of, and therefore will just naturally go into labor early.
{Plus, my doc is going to check to see if I'm dilated at all during my next appointment, so it's game time, man. With Carter I was at a big fat ZERO, even at 41 weeks, so this time, that's not happening!}

I've heard of women going into labor early once they hit a deadline a ton of times, so I'm giving it a shot.
I call it the
such dash involves:

- 1 hour walks every single day -
{albeit extremely slow ones due to the good ole' braxton hicks}

- stretching like a madwoman -
{Carter gets a kick out of this, and tries to copy my stealthy moves}

- drinking TONS of water -
{I know you're supposed to do this the whole time, but I've brought it to a whole new level}

- a nightly bubble bath -
{this was in the hopes that everything will just chill out down....there.....but now I just enjoy those things! Last night I clocked 45 minutes in the ole' tub! Now if only I could just enjoy a glass of wine at the same time...}

and that's just the "BODY: EVERYDAY" portion of the's the layout of the rest:
 {...And this picture is a few days old! Now there are scribbles everywhere, check marks - thank goodness - and a million more things added!}

 {Here's our then-empty bassinet! Now that thing is filled to the brim with FOLDED girl/unisex/boy clothes separated into 0-3 months, 6 months, 9-12 months!}

 {I've been finishing up a few crafts for the kiddo's room - even though Babe #2 will be in our room for the foreseeable future, it doesn't hurt to spruce up the tot's dwellings just a little bit!}

 {...And another craft!}

Other things that we've done in the last few days:
{FYI: my brain is slightly fried, and I'm thinking about the unwrapped Christmas presents in the back of my car, AND I'm thinking about my OTHER to-do list which involves Carter's immediate-family-only second birthday party...Sorry, kiddo, this year we're going small!}

- the Britax B-Ready is making it's way to our doorstep as we speak! -

- I'm 99% done with Christmas shopping which is quite the statement, considering it's the 16th! -

- I have chosen which color lulu wrap I want! -

- I did 9 loads of laundry the other day! -

Man, that was quite the unload.
Here are a few other things we've been up to lately:

Have a WONDERFUL weekend!
