Cleaning and scrubbing will wait ’till tomorrow, but children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow. So quiet down cobwebs! Dust go to sleep! I’m rocking my baby. Babies don’t keep. – Ruth Hamilton

IT'S COMING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

With about a month to go my nerves are getting the best of me.  On Tuesday, my head wouldn't stop hurting-hurting so bad I had to call my doctor.  I was a little worried because I had preeclampsia with Avery and a headache with blurry vision is a sign.  So they got me in right away, but everything was fine and they sent me off with some prescription for my head. After talking to Mark, and my mom, I came to the conclusion it has to be how I am carrying stress.  I have so much to do!
My family is getting pretty tired of my stress level, but wouldn't you be stressing too? I know the baby doesn't need much-just love and snuggles. It's just hard to know that you spend so much time on the first and even the second arrival and then the third comes along and there isn't much to do.
I have my count down and my schedule around the house. Mark has been very supportive about getting things done. So far we have re-done our pantry to create more room, organized Mack's closet so he can share (it is HUGE), cleared out the garage, and cleared out a ton of things from upstairs. Who knew we had so much stuff-even after we have done this two times before!
Along with starting Little Gyms this week we did have a nice Wednesday surprise:
This is our third crib!  They all transform into full sized beds, so we couldn't give any of the other two up.  We want to thank my parents for this beautiful gift-we couldn't be prepared without you!

This weekend Mark, and hopefully some other help, will be painting this room (even though it will remain a guest room, I have a feeling it will turn into one of the boys).  Thankfully Mack and Avery will get to go to their Nanny and Papa H's house, so we can work.  You don't realize how much you can get done until they are out of the house:).  Thank you again for this support!!!!  Avery and Mack are pretty excited.

Having three babies under 2 1/2 is very stressful, but if anyone can do it, I think Mark and I as a team can do it.  So I need to calm down and let it happen.  The most important thing right now is my family of five (quoted from my mom).  Nothing else matters!!!!!  This post is my way of letting out a little stress as well as sharing our progress!
