Is this what they call nesting?

Well, 15 days to go and I'm not sure we're as ready as we thought we were for this new little baby. It's a little too late for that, though. C-section is booked.
We don't have a name picked out yet. But then I always remember Trina and Erick who took the full 7 days to come up with Shole's name. I'm having a hard time thinking up boy names, because I'm still convinced it's a girl (so much that I've packed a cute little dress for baby to come home from the hospital in). Girl names are a little easier, but then we've got to find something that both of us like and that goes well with Michel for a middle name (That's the only part of the name that I know we want to use).
I'm making up the meal calendar for April and going through the freezer to see what's ready to go to make things easier for Chris and Ryker. Normally my meal calendar only includes dinner, but I think this months needs to include breakfast lunch and snack. that way I know Ryker will get to eat no matter what. Lucky Chris gets to do the grocery shopping on his own.
I have no idea how Ryker is going to handle the new baby. some days I think he'll do great, other days I'm not so sure. It will be interesting to see. It's hard to prepare a 2 year old for a new baby.
As for our renovations...they continue. the cupboards are all in (and wonderful!) and the flooring is done in the kitchen/dining room/living room (we even got a nice area rug for the living room). Chris is working on the hallway (painting and flooring), then they'll get a door/wall put up in Ryker's new room on the holiday Monday. After that it's time to paint Ryker's room and put curtains up in our new room. then we're ready to move in. it's cutting it close, but renovations will never be done, so we'll take what we can get.
If you haven't figured out the date yet, the baby will make it's appearance on April 1st. I didn't choose this day, but we just do what the doctor says.

Oh yeah... the infamous name debate for Shole. That was so funny... we would call every day, "so does the baby have a name yet?" He was "The Baby" for a week... it killed me. Hopefully the renos continue to go well and that your section goes well too!

I can't wait! I hope its a girl cause I so want to do a girl quilt!!! Any color choices? As for names, we had the same problem with Talyssa, I had to take the papers back in, just before the deadline!! lol Have fun with the name picking and the renos (I feel for you)
Miss you!!!
