BABY #3

October 2005- Bought my first outfit for a baby girl coming the next June.

October 2009- FREAKING out that I have yet to even buy diapers for a baby I do not know the gender of coming in 2-3 weeks.

Until now, I didn't realize just how convenient it was to know the GENDER of the baby. If I have the baby at the same time I had Parker, it will arrive next Sunday. SUNDAY! I have yet to find the 0-3 months clothes for Boys and Girls, because my husband has stacked them under everything we own in storage. I'm not going to lie, there may be a bit of silent thinking that if I don't prepare, it won't happen so soon. My Parker is still my baby right now. As much as I know I will love the new babe, I hate that Parker is now taking back seat. He had so little time being the baby. The fact that I will have two children with whom I cannot communicate with, have to clean dirty diapers and constantly carry in my arms is kind of scaring me to death. Not to mention all of the horror stories people are so willing to talk about when they find out the age gap. I feel like I will really need to rely on the Lord the next few months. I am not one who comes by patience easily.

We will make it.

I will live.

Now where the heck is my nesting INSTINCT!!

Carrie, take a deep breath...
I totally feel your pain, although mine were never that close in age, but I can relate to the last minute preparations (or lack thereof). At least you're not in the process of moving!! Newborns don't need much - get the diapers, dig out the clothes and you're set.
Don't forget, getting surprised with the gender is SO FUN!! You'll be OK!

You WILL be fantastic! While there may be days that are hard, the age difference will be great for the kids. When your labor starts not knowing the gender brings even more excitement! I have baby girl clothes handy and even some little guy stuff, only a block away! No worries...

Well, if you need any help getting stuff ready, just need a break from your current kids, or need help after the baby gets here, I am pretty close. Just give me a call and I will be there.

Carrie, I have never known you to take anything lying down. You are a fighter with a smile on your face. You will do just fine because you are a wonderful wife and mother. The Lord and Loren are both on your side and looking out for you so where can you go wrong with that? Miss you guys !

Oh Carrie,procrastination is one of my traits also. i am also opptimistic, so I will just remind you that: even if you don't get everything done before the baby comes, they have diapers at the hospital and you have a sweet hubby who can dig out all the clothes for you (not a bad idea). Seriously, good luck, i know that you will do great! We are coming home for christmas so I can't wait to see your cute little baby
