The Big Day is Here!!!

So in a few hours we will be heading to the hospital to meet our newest family addition via a scheduled c-section!

Poor Cynthia is about to explode and she can barely move any more. Just shifting from one side to the other makes her whole body spasm in pain, literally bringing tears to her eyes. I have to hand it to her, with everything we've gone through in this pregnancy, she has done an AWESOME job!

It is going to be quite the transition for all of us from a family of three to four. I can't even imagine what it's like with two kids and even though it's only been four years, I can't remember what it's like to have a tiny baby in the house. I guess I'll find out soon enough and I'm sure it will be great.

Kiki had been handling it pretty well, considering she has been the focus of all attention for the past 4 years. She knows today is the big day and probably because of that gave us a hard time going to bed last night. Just wanted to test us a little before she crashed around 9:30pm (2 hours past her regularly scheduled bedtime).

We're as ready as we can be I guess. All the tiny onesies have been washed, folded and put away in the dresser. The baby swing is ready. Baby car seat will be installed later today. The changing table is back up and ready for action. And I even figured out how to put the crib back together even though I couldn't find the screws and nuts anywhere.

I ordered a replacement hardware kit for the crib but apparently the manufacturer (Bellini) can't figure out how to order one. Their playing "Where in the World is Carmen Hardware-Kit" with it. Is it in China? Or maybe Italy? I ended up going to Home Depot and buying loose parts instead. If they ever find the kit and ship it we will just sell it with the crib sometime in the future.

So anyway, that's it. Kiki will spend the night at Sophie's and I will pick her up tomorrow and take her to the hospital. We're going to get some lunch on the way and cupcakes and celebrate a birthday. We have gifts from everyone to everyone else and it's going to be great.

I can't wait to meet her!!!

Stay tuned for more updates (and first photos). I will probably cross post here and on the Dekel Daily Blog, so check either one.
