The stork has filed his flight plan
Everyone says life changes dramatically after children, and they also say that even if you think you're prepared, you can't appreciate how dramatically until you experience it. So I'm curious to see how much it changes. I suspect that it will change a lot, and yet not be quite the 180 degrees different that folklore tends to suggest. It's the dramatic stories people like to tell, not the ones about the night(s) that their kids slept all night long and never woke up once. Ask me again in two months and I'll let you know!
We are pretty close to ready. We have a ton of baby clothes: lots of friends randomly gave us things that they found at a garage sale this summer, plus we had two baby showers; one from our church and one from Debbie's sisters. We need to finish painting the changing table, and paint the dresser. My mom and dad sent us the cradle I used as a baby, and for which we only need to buy sheets. The swing is set up (and our dog Striker seems to be okay with it), so we're pretty well ready. Poor Debbie is certainly ready, and she still has six weeks to wait.
My baby girl will be here on or about December 12...
