Getting Ready for Baby Ryleigh...6 weeks to go





Happy Week 34!!!
After a wonderful week off work I feel more "ready" for Mommyhood...
Washing her blankets, bibs, some clothes, and towels...
Learning how to use the "milking machine"...
Organizing and REORGANIZING her nursery...
Starting to pack THE BAG...

And officially getting no sleep at night. God has a funny way of preparing new moms for the lack of sleep they are about to experience. However, I just wish it was in a more comfortable manner. The back pain is atrocious and I am not sure how WE will make it through the next 6 weeks! I know it will all be worth it very soon.

On Saturday last week we had an ultrasound and found out that Ryleigh is 4lbs & 12oz! Her head and belly measured bigger (a week ahead) and her legs were actually a week behind (who would have figured she would have short legs??) She was head down and ready to go!

We see Dr. Partridge this Wednesday for our 34 week checkup and will hopefully finish all of our Christmas shopping this week too. Never know when she will come!

Ryleigh Kate Watkins 1.16.09 8lbs. 9oz. & 20 inches of pure joy!
