5 Car seats!!!

Believe it or not we now have five car seats installed in my car. I guess if you want to be technical, it's four car seats and one booster seat (Abby just needs to gain a little more weight and she could join the booster seat category too). This weekend was the "get ready for baby" weekend!! My parents came to visit and we got out the bouncy seat, baby swing, infant car seat, etc. We cleaned up the stroller and my suitcase is officially packed. I've got most of the baby clothes washed and the kitchen is once again stocked with bottles. My mom has even written her substitute plans, so she can drop everything at a moments notice and come help. So in other words....WE ARE READY! I'm feeling so much better now that I've got everything in it's place. The only thing I need now is for my husband to quit traveling and stay put for the next month (He's in Massachusetts and Connecticut for a few days and this is something that has become rather common. I guess I should just be thankful he's within driving distance and that he didn't have to fly somewhere).

Unfortunately, I've got a terrible sore throat and my ears are killing me, so I guess I should probably go to the doctor. I know that there is very little they'll be able to do for me since I'm 9 months pregnant, but I need to get better quickly. Please pray that I get over this little bug and that none of the children catch it. Remarkably, all the kids are healthy right now and I hope it stays that way for months to come!!

I am so glad that you are ready!!! Now all you need is Baby McKenna!!! Are you part of the minivan club as well? I'm sure 5 car seats is quite a sight!!! YES - go to the doctor and get something to help get you over your bug. They aren't going to want you sick at delivery either!!!

Judy,
It sounds a little like Paul Revere's Ride. "We're ready to ride and sound the alarm to every Middlesex village and farm, for the country folk to be up and to arm." "The baby is coming, the baby is coming." I'm ready! Can't wait to hold that little pumpkin!
Love, Mom
