We are kicking ourselves now for not getting a picture of it (first of 123981092389 times as parents we will miss a photo op I am sure), but after I got her lotion on and in her jammies, I sat with her in the recliner and she layed on my chest completely sprawled out with her eyes wide open like she had just been through the most traumatic thing ever. We have a drama queen on our hands, I'm afraid. :)

Ready to go home!

And, since she is way cuter than me, here's a couple pictures of Lacey from last night....I came to put sheets back on the bed last night and found that she had made herself a little nest out of all the pillows AND somehow managed to cover herself with one...she is quite talented. :)
And, last but not least... Happy Engagement, Kyle and Elke! We really wish we could be at your party tonight to help you celebrate, we are so excited for you guys! Enjoy your night!

I have done every old wives tale you can think of to get her out (except castor oil....gross!). I have walked and walked and walked with the dog, I have had a ton of spicy food, lots of pineapple, I sit on an exercise ball.....you name it I've tried it. I didn't necessarily think any of it would work, but I sure was hoping! She has other plans I guess...oh well! We will be happy to meet her whenever she decides she is ready (or when my dr decides to induce me...we will see which comes first!)
Today is my dad's guess for when Claire will arrive, tomorrow is my mom's and Bud's guess. I sure hope someone is right!!! We have said since the week we found out I was pregnant that it would really be very cool if she was born on 10-10-10, so maybe, just maybe this little stinker will show up tomorrow for us.
Bud took my picture last night...you can see in the second one how massive my belly is. :)
The weather was absolutely beautiful here for a few days--we were able to turn the air off for 3 or 4 days in a row, which was wonderful. The fresh air in the house is so nice. Lacey has really enjoyed having the windows open so she can keep an eye on both her backyard and front yard--she has spent a lot of time sitting like this in Claire's room...
Time to go get my laundry going for the weekend....I am hoping that my next post will have pictures of our baby girl!

I am not presentable today, so I made Bud take my picture from the chin down, but I wanted to make sure you all got to see just how enormous my belly is....
(Also, you may notice that I no longer have ankles. My toes look like sausages!)
This weekend, I went grocery shopping to stock the shelves, we went to Sam's Club to stock up on paper goods and dog bones, I caught up on laundry, cleaned the kitchen, swept/mopped the floors, vacuumed, cleaned the bathrooms and dusted. We have plenty of new treats and bones for Lacey, we washed and vacuumed the car, my bag is packed and our friends are on call to come take care of the dog when I go into labor. All that is left to clean our bedroom a little bit. See, little girl?!? We really are VERY ready for you to come!!!
So, now we just keep waiting! I know we are on her schedule...so we are going to have to see just how much of our stubborness this child inherited. We could be in for the long haul. :)
