Makes a world of difference! With only 4 days left –
Yes, only 4 more days until Lilly Arrives!!
– I have been moving more and more slowly every day. I wake up several times a night to go to the bathroom, or move to my other side, because I’m so uncomfortable. My lower back hurts all the time, and Baby Lilly has grown so heavy that just getting up off the couch and walking across the room is a chore.
This morning, I prayed earnestly for God to relieve the pain in my back, and I followed up that prayer with some Tylenol (the only thing I can take), and I feel like a new woman!
My friend Katie came over with her camera and took a ton of maternity pics for us. We had such a good time. I want to work on some of them in Photoshop, but I’ll let you see a few raw ones here.
As you can imagine, we’ve been getting things ready for Lilly to come, and preparing the girls’ bedroom is part of the process. Since they both will share one room, we’ve had to make some room in the closets (thankfully, there’s two) and the dresser. I also finished these plaques last night, so both girls will have their names displayed in their bedroom.
While we’re making the room a welcoming place for Lil’ Lilly, we’ve also been making it a better room for a big girl as well. We got this toy chest at IKEA, and we’re going to use it to put books inside, and I’m going to cover the top with a padded fabric, to make a little seat for Maggie to sit and look at books. This will be their little reading nook!
