Ready for baby

Here's another picture of our baby corner--the changing table with cloth diapers and covers all washed and ready to go, clothes organized by size, supplies, toys, etc. I think we are opting to forgo setting up the co-sleeper, which will eventually fit next to mom's side of the bed, at least for the time being. It will be very nice eventually, but it's quite large for our small bedroom and I think it makes more sense just to have the baby directly in bed with us. After talking to several families who have co-slept, at least during the first few weeks, I'm convinced that this is the way to go. Anyways, there are still little things to attend to, but we are pretty much as ready as we're going to be. The excitement is building!

Birthing Tub

We brought a birthing tub home from the midwife's last week. Here it is, the "Aqua Doula," partially set up. This past weekend, Drew and I decided to take it out of it's compact storage container in order to see how much time it would take to put together, and make sure we weren't missing any thing. It looks to be pretty straightforward and quick to set up, but as you can see, it's pretty big. So, we'll leave it packed up, most likely, till I go into labor. On another note, today is my first official day of leave, and it feels wonderful to be home getting things prepared for the homebirth, rather than travelling to Silverdale and spending all day at a computer screen (my time on the computer at home is by comparison, very limited). Only a few more days remain till my official due date of March 1st! No contractions yet...

39 Weeks

Here's mom: The pictures were just taken today in our "baby corner" --the area of our bedroom set aside for the changing table, baby clothes, etc. We are more or less ready. Today we brought home the birthing tub, so we are all set for a waterbirth. Mom has only 3 more days of work, and then maternity leave officially begins! She can't wait. The due date (March 1st) is just over a week away.

Barb and Adrianne through me a great baby shower for all of my work colleagues a few weeks ago (at 35 week). Here are a few images from the event:
