4 more days

Not until christmas... until Gwen comes. (That is if all goes according to plan. ha.) We've rearranged the nursery, cleaned just about everything including the carpets, and changed the oil. I'm feeling pretty good and ready for her to come now. It's amazing how much cleaning made me feel better about her coming. There's something to that nesting thing that people talk about. I just couldn't rest until the carpets were cleaned. And now that they are - I'm doing much much better. :)It's been fun doing things with Jonas these last few days. We went down to BYU and saw the MOA exhibit and then he danced to these singing Elmos in the bookstore. It's fun to see him grow up. He still looks pretty small to me - but I'm sure he's going to look so huge and capable compared to Gwen. I'm really excited for him to have a sister. This kid needs some more entertainment.

I've been kind of self-conscious lately that my belly isn't big enough. Ridiculous, I know. But people never believe that I'm almost 9 months pregnant. I'm not sure why... I'm feeling pretty big, but I've gotten it enough that it makes me a little worried. Do people just say that because it's supposed to be a compliment? Probably, but I kinda feel myself getting a little pouty and scared. "Really? Uh-oh. is that bad? Is she not big enough? Sheesh, maybe I'm not as far along as I thought. What if there's something wrong?" yadda yadda yadda. But my dr. says she's measuring well, so I'll just not worry about it. I think that it's just because I'm long waisted or carry in my back or something like that. I dunno. bah! Done worrying about it.

Speaking of babies - here's my cute niece playing Jesus in the manger for our family nativity. haha, such a cute little face. She had that scowl on for a while but she warmed up to it after a bit. (maybe warmed up a little too much because she had a blow out. oh boy, blow-outs... here we go again.) It's fun to see and hold her. It makes me excited for my own. But like Russell said - she's so cute that she's a pretty tough act to follow. i hope that Gwen's up to it.
