34 weeks

B is officially 34 weeks today since the ultrasound moved the due date up to March 4th. She has 2 doctor's appointments this coming week, I don't really get the point of the visit on Tuesday but Thursday is with the OB. She will be 35 weeks then. We are really getting close now and it's wonderful and scary at the same time. B has decided to have the baby room-in with her for the 24hrs she's in the hospital and she wants Mark and I there as well. I wasn't expecting that but I understand. She needs to get to know her daughter a little before saying goodbye. She also said she wants the memories of seeing the baby being cared for and loved by us. I kept looking for the perfect gift to give her in the hospital and then decided on a digital camera. She's mentioned how she would love to be able to get pictures of her kids and how she's missing moments in their lives. So a camera seemed to fit. Nothing extravagant, just a simple camera.

We've got the baby's bag packed and most of our things gathered up to be packed. This Saturday is supposed to be pretty so I'm hoping to get the porches cleaned off and the Christmas lights down.

And on a different note, today makes 7 years since my first nephew Jacob was born still. I miss him and think about him every day.
