I'm 38 weeks as of yesterday and I'm ready.  I know it could be another month before baby makes its arrival but it could also be tomorrow.  I'm not holding out all my hopes there but that would be awesome.  I have absolutely nothing to do at work now which makes daily life go by sooo slowly.

I talked to the little one yesterday and mentioned that if he/she does decide to come sometime this week, I would be forced to love him/her a little bit more than his/her sister who waited until an induction at 42 weeks.  She'd still be in there if she could fit and just randomly reach out and ask for a new book.

A friend came and painted clouds in the nursery this past weekend so that's all done now.  Just two paintings to hang up but that's no big deal.  I even washed the newborn neutral clothes... something I didn't bother doing with Ziva.  Sorry kiddo.  Her clothes were all new, these are already worn and sat for 2 years.. plus our new washer and dryer are both awesome.

Ziva asks about the baby a bunch which is adorable. She was asking Mark in the car about her baby brother and he was trying to explain it could be a girl, we don't know.  She insists it's a boy, time will tell.  Last night when I was reading to her she stopped listening leaned up (not easy over my gigantic belly) and snuggled into me more and said I love mommy, I love baby, I love daddy, I love woofwoof.  I teared up and gave her squishy hugs and kisses.

We've settled on the names.  We've even settled on the Hebrew names.  Spoke to the Rabbi tonight - if it's a boy we'll do a bris and a baby naming for Ziva.  If it's a girl we'll do a joint baby naming ceremony which will be nice.  Funny that even though Ziva is hebrew he suggested a different Hebrew name.  I like the name though and the meaning so we're going with it.

That's about all.  I sent Mark out for ice cream tonight because, at most, I only have another month to get away with that.

Exciting :)

What's Ziva's Hebrew name? Or are you waiting to announce that? I love names, looking forward to hearing your new baby's name too when s/he arrives :)

I'm okay saying Ziva's since we've had the first name since birth but just added in the middle when talking about doing a naming for her. Zehava Chaya is/will be her Hebrew name, basically translated it means golden life which I feel like is very fitting and hope she leads a golden life.

Wow! So close(yet so far away, I'm sure it seems). I will say that my first was induced at 42 weeks, and my second came at 41 weeks exactly(and I won't mention how overdue my third decided to be....grrr). The first wait made me okay with the second, shorter, wait. I was even surprised when I did go into labor at 51 weeks on the dot, I thought I still had some time!

Good luck and I hope your transition from one to two goes smoothly!
