And it just hit me. I am having my baby tomorrow! I will be holding my daughter in my arms at some point TOMORROW! Oh, the feels! lol. I am excited, nervous, anxious, and so many other emotions all mixed into one big ball of mush inside my head. lol. We still have quite a bit to do here at home today. Our social worker will be here in about an hour (the one that comes by once a week and helps my husband and I figure out effective ways to cope with my oldest's outbursts), then we have the meeting at the school to dicuss our options for my son. I need to do the dishes, get all the laundry washed/dried/put away, make up Valerie's crib, take out all the trash, clean out the fridge. We still have to go by my husband's job to fill out the vacation paperwork for this week. Then, we're picking my oldest up from school so we can head up to my in-laws house for the night. We were just going to drop the boys off and come home, but my mil suggested we stay too, so we are. My in laws live a little over 2 hours away from us, and the hospital is in the middle. So instead of getting up insane early tomorrow to take the boys all the way up there and then back track to the hospital, we're all just going to stay up there tonight and head to the hospital from thier house. Plus, we're on a different time zone than my hospital (we are central time and they are eastern), so being at my in-laws puts us on the same time as the hospital, so it's less likely we will forgot to convert the time, etc. I feel bad about not having the boys there while I labor, but I think it may be easier on them to be somewhere that they can run around and play instead of being cooped up at the hospital all day.

We also took the boys to the mall yesterday. My husband and my oldest picked out a bear for Valerie at Build a Bear. It is a birth day gift from her bubbies and we are going to give it her tomorrow when they meet her. It was my oldest's idea and is incredibly sweet. He is so excited to have a baby sister. We also got the boys "big brother" gifts from Valerie. They already have possession of them, but we told them they were from Sissy. My oldest got a tin Ironman lunchbox and we got my youngest a stuffed Ironman beanie ball. (They each picked out their own gift.) We've been spending a lot of money on baby things for Valerie, so we thought it was only fair to get them something to help them feel more included.
