I spent the better part of last thursday hanging out in triage monitoring baby Olive (and me). Nothing too alarming but better to have everything checked and go home than get into an emergency situation. This Mama’s got NO time for emergencies! So I’m ordered to just “rest” at home, kick my feet up, relax, drink lots of H20 (can you see my eyes rolling) and bide our time until this sweet girl wants to join us. That might not be until Thanksgiving week though so if our little turkey wants to keep on roasting I guess we just have to let her!
I can’t tell you how many people asked if I was a first time Mom! I don’t know why but that really makes me laugh. I kept repeating “she’s my fourth” like it was my job, to expressions of shock and amusement. Then I got to make it double fun by telling people she’s my fourth girl. Extra shocked expressions, ha. I’d like to think they think I’m a first time Mom because I still looked calm cool and collected (like I was blissfully unaware of what’s to come) and not dead tired, run ragged and completely drowning in motherhood already. Who knows.
Either way, all I can keep doing is organizing, arranging and setting up all the baby things. It feels so special to get to do it all one last time. Wash the bitty clothes, prep the diapering station and make sure my brand new pump is ready to go. The slings are all freshly ironed, diaper bag stashes are ready.

That’s all I’ve got for today. Send me all the labor vibes!
