Well, the baby's room is now empty and blue, thanks to my mom arriving yesterday! I wish we had taken a "before" picture - surely they give awards for "most stuff cleaned out of one small room" on some TLC program!! The new paint looks great, now we just need to fill the room with baby things - YAY! Tomorrow is our garage sale (what else could we do with all that junk that used to be in the baby's room, but sell it!!), and we're hoping it will stay cool and cloudy - but not rainy - until the sale ends. Mama also inserted blue ribbon into the eyelet bassinet cover she made 13 years ago (!) when Mary Kathryn was born. It used to have green ribbon, but this situation really calls for blue : ) So she worked hard last night making it just right, and it is really beautiful. Things are coming together, and I think it's possible we'll be ready when the baby decides to arrive! Thanks for all of your prayers and support, it means so much to us. Who would have thought we'd be preparing a room for a baby the week before our 39th and 44th birthdays??? I'm thankful that God in His sovereignty knows what's best for us (and when), because we surely don't!
