Only three weeks left...
Everything looked good at my appointment yesterday.
And I am even feeling a little more prepared for the arrival of Baby Mac.
My mom and I tackled Cora's room this week.
I was SO hard to go through all her things.
Toys, books, blankets, clothes, hair clips...
So many of those things I hadn't really looked at since we took Cora to the hospital.
So many memories came flooding back.
I was so thankful that my mom was there to help me.
To cry with me when I found things that made me burst into tears.
And to help me just keep going.
I think I would have been tempted to shut the door and not face it when I really needed to.
Before we went through anything, we just cleaned the room.
I wanted to leave it just like it was and take some pictures.
I don't think I ever took any pictures of Cora's room when we finished it before she was born.
I had wanted to add blue or pink later since we didn't know if she was a boy or girl.
I wanted it to be perfect first, and of course it never was (at least I didn't think it was).
These were Cora's three favorite things.
And her dog book.
Joel read this book to her every night.
She would reach out and touch all the dogs.
And she would giggle and giggle when Joel made the dogs bark.
It was so cute.
I put these three things in a box along with some other special things of Cora's.
We even managed to get the bassinet sheets, blankets and burpies washed.
I think everything is almost ready.
I need to pick up a few things like diapers...
Otherwise, I think we are as ready as we will ever be.
Nothing like preparing for a new baby in one day!
Please pray for us as we prepare to meet this little one.
The past few weeks have been emotional for many reasons.
We continue to seek the Lord for renewed strength to get through each day.
How thankful we are for His unfailing love and comfort to us!
We wouldn't be where we are today without Him.
