So far So good

So I am now 23 weeks pregnant or 6 months, same thing as far as dates are concerned. Matt says that I now look like I am actually pregnant and that it only took 6 months to get there. We've been collecting stuff for Natalie, mostly from Matt's mom, Christie, and I know there will be more to come. It is official Natalie will be sleeping in a castle, very exciting. We are getting ready to paint her bed room too. This morning I took a tally of the things we have for Natalie. So far we have 15 newborn onesies (mostly white, but we do have 5 pink, 1 black, and 1 yellow), 6 receiving blankets, 4 bibs, 3 bottles, 3 beanie hats, 1 pair of mittens, 2 pairs of socks, 1 headband, 36 newborn diapers, 1 diaper bag, 2 newborn seat belt pads, and then 8 outfits for when she gets bigger. Also after a week of being to tired to even get dressed, I have caught the nesting bug. I want to get the house clean and spotless ( I tell myself good luck with that), and everything decorated and in order. I am very thankful to my mother-in-law for helping with the decorating, it makes things just look and feel nicer to actually have color on the walls ( yes I have lived here for over a year and haven't really put anything up). I almost can't believe that I have 4 more months until my baby girl gets here! Time to get stuff done!

I remember making an inventory from all of the baby showers and gifts. That was a lot of fun to think of dressing her in all of it. I already made your baby blanket. I just might be making a hat for her, too. Your diaper bag is just so cute. Enjoy this time, it's going to get super busy soon!

By the way, nice loot! I'm sure there will be lots more to come. Congrats on the castle!!
