The end is in sight!

So I went to the Dr. today and GREAT NEWS! I am schedule to be induced on Thursday around 6:00am. There is a chance I'll go into labor before then, but I do have a due date in sight! I am SO excited! And...a little freaked out. I am a bit more anxious and nervous this time around and I don't know why. Maybe it's because I know what's in store and that scares me a little. Cody's been at work since Saturday night and I've been spending every minute getting things ready. I have the bassinet all set up and the baby clothes all folded and ready. I even made a special little onesie for the little dude to wear home:

I even sewed a little flame on the back! So cute...

I've been cleaning the house like crazy and my hospital bag is all packed. I'm really scared that I'll go into labor when Cody is at work (that happened the first time!). Every night before I go to bed I make sure that everything is set in case I go into labor at 3:00am or something. I just feel nervous and restless...I hope it passes so I can get some good rest before the baby gets here!

My friend Heather is scheduled to be induced tonight! I am so excited for her. I made her some more burp cloths to match her nursery, so on Friday night Cody and I went out to dinner and then stopped by to drop them off. We ended up staying until the wee hours! It was nice to just sit and talk with Heather for a while...Cody was happy playing "Guitar Hero" with Heather's husband, Jim. They were hilarious! They were so into the game, it was awesome. Heather got some great pictures, I'll have to get them from her and post them sometime. You know, when she's not having a baby.

So now I'm off to sew some more onesies and burp cloths...I have turned into a sewing fiend - fiend I tell you! I'm all eager to start new projects and I've easily been to the fabric store more in the past two weeks than I have in my entire life. I'm hoping to get some onesies finished so I can sell them, so check back often! Of course, I may have to take some days off once the baby is born. You understand.

AHHHHH!!! That's coming right up! I know that anxiety of which you speak--no rest for the soon-to-be weary, right? Hahaha.

And, hi. That onesie is the cutest thing EVER!!! If you do decide to sell these, let me do a little plug for you on my site and at cre8buzz. Just let me know when you're ready. I've gotten to know an awful lot of mommy-bloggers lately who would undoubtedly EAT THOSE UP. Because they are SO FRICKIN' BRACKIN' CUTE!!!

I'm holding my breath for Thursday. I'm sure that in many ways it feels super far away, and in other ways it feel WAY TOO SOON! Hahaha. Can't wait for all the details!
