Baby update...

We have 6 weeks until the new baby Smittcamp is due. We don't know the sex of the baby, however I would be COMPLETELY shocked if this baby is NOT a girl. We are so happy either way, but nonetheless we would be shocked. I feel so strongly this is a girl, I have been debating on filling the closets and dresser with all Aubrey Rose's newborn clothes. I have yet to do that, but I really have considered it. Time will tell. God knows and we can't wait to know as well!

The nursery is all ready. The baby could come tomorrow and we would be ready. Actually I should probably get some diapers before then but other than that we are set. We moved Aubrey to a different room and set her up in a big girl room months ago, so the nursery has been ready since then!

I have told Blake multiple times this pregnancy, that it is completely unfair we can not split the duty of being pregnant. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing to complain about, but let's just say, for me, it is not the most comfortable thing overall. I miss feeling like myself and I also miss sleeping comfortably. Being pregnant with Aubrey Rose, I remember being able to sleep on my left OR my right side. This pregnancy, I am down to only my left side. Not my back, obviously not my front, not the right, only my left side. Again, I have nothing to complain about. Writing it on here, is really just a way for me to remember what this season was like. But, just like Blake told me on our wedding day...."You have to take the good with the bad." :) We can't wait to meet this new bundle of joy whenever God has planned.

Just a little snapshot of the nursery Aubrey grew up in and now her sister or brother will share the same crib. The writing above the crib says, "Sweet Dreams, Sleep Tight, We Love You, Good Night"

For Christmas, Mimi and Big Papa (Blake's sweet parents) got these adorable shoes for their newest grandbaby to wear.

BOY or GIRL...give or take 6 short weeks and we will know!!
