Nanas are Magical

...or at least, Olivia's Nana is magical!  Whoo, things have gotten a whole lot easier around here since she arrived on Wednesday evening.

She made us pancakes for breakfast and is currently scrubbing down the kitchen while I play with Olivia and her Strawberry Shortcake, Blueberry Muffin and Raspberry Torte dolls.  (Umm, let's just say these dolls are a lot different from the ones I had growing up, but they smell EXACTLY the same.)  I do sort of love that I get to do their hair in the Ooh La La Beauty Spa (from Fancy Nancy).  Mom's cleaning even inspired David to clean out the shower.  {Well, to be honest, I asked him to do it, but at least he said yes.}

We were able to go to Target on Thursday and then she watched Olivia in the afternoon while David and I ran errands {and I got my hair chopped}.

Yeah, I'm about ready to POP.

And, yesterday we made a trip to the library that was by far the easiest trip to the library we've ever made...I was able to actually browse for some books for me to read!  {Like I'm going to have a lot of time to read them in the next couple of weeks, but still...}

Yesterday, I was experiencing some serious cramping {which I was hoping was going to lead to contractions, but has currently subsided and we are showing NO signs of this baby making her way out anytime soon} and Mom took care of Olivia while I laid down and napped.  And, if that wasn't enough, she treated me to a pedicure while David took Olivia on their date night to Avila.

See, aren't Nanas the best?!

In other news, we have the Pack & Play all set up for Baby Sister to sleep in.  Olivia tested it out with some of her babies {two Cabbage Patch kids that used to be mine...just wishing I had kept my Strawberry Shortcake figurines too} and then decided to crawl in the bassinet portion of it herself.

No, the baby won't be sleeping in the bathroom, but that's where David chose to put it all together.

Hope your weekend is full of sunshine and hope ours is full of contractions!
Happy Saturday from the Central Coast!

I have loved every minute of being here. It would only be better if Poppy were here too. Olivia misses him and I do too. So Poppy get your stuff done at home and hurry on out here to us.

Now, new baby girl stop being so comfortable where you are. Nana and big sister are waiting to meet you.

Amanda, you look beautiful! I am praying for a safe delivery. Glad you Mom is there to help. Big hugs and kisses to Oliva.
