penciled in~

Calendarlike my big huge calendar?
i thought maybe it would help me with deadlines…um, turns out… it doesn’t take care of the deadline problem, but it sure looks cute! i got it from pottery barn… it’s huge, and it’s a white board and magnet board combo… all the numbers and months are magnets.. i can’t say that i am any more ‘on top’ of everything, but everyone adds theri stuff to it, and we can all see it… so it’s working out well!
here is a photo of me that cory just took! i am pointing at the 7th.. becuase i have an appointment to have a baby!
it’s the real deal!  eric just picked up the crib! so i will have somewhere to lay the baby down… that is good. and i got a pack of diapers! we are going to go out tonight and get a little boy outfit and a little girl outfit to bring that baby home in, and i am going to buy some cute pajamas!
one of the girls that babysits for me regularly called and asked if i wanted to go on a date with my husband before the baby came, and offered up her services! how cutie of her!

    Hi, I hope that you have a pedicure scheduled sometime around the 4th or 5th.. Holy cow, that’s this weekend. I’m so excited and nervous and everything. I feel like it’s me all over again. Aspen is seriously so excited, she can’t stop talking about the new baby. You should see her, she’s drooling all over about it! I’m seriously so excited. I feel like Aspen and I really need to be there, I can’t stand it! Missing you tons!

    Great calendar- and Quincy’s room rocks! I read your blog all the time- you are such an inspiration to me. I have an 11 week old son and just wanted to advise you to carve out some one-on-one time with each of your kids before the new baby comes (if you can.) I wish I had treasured my time with my daughter more. Now that the baby is here, I’m not able to give her as much attention. (And we both miss it!) I’m sure, being older, your kids will really enjoy having the baby around, but I know they’ll miss you for a while too, seeing as how you can’t help but be consumed by a new baby. So, if you can, do something special with each of them before D-Day arrives, because it will be a while before you can do it again! (Oh- and how about one last romantic meal with the hubby, too?) BEST WISHES to you!

    Hi Heidi..
    I just want to say that you look fantastic. Seriously! I wish you and your wonderful family good luck on your new addition!!! From what I can tell this baby will be very lucky to be apart of such a wonderful family. You cant beat having a Dad who paints beautiful princess rooms and a mom thats full of talent and obvious love for her family. Good luck and well wishes for a peaceful delivery.
    Now off to stalk websites looking for your new product 🙂

    For the love of everything….I have had my eye on that calendar…it was in the shopping cart online yesterday and Jer told me not to buy it….I believe I will take this as a sign from above that I NEED this purchase ;)I figured a calendar that big would keep me straight…say it will. I have already got the perfect place for it too….oh and by the way…you look way too cute to be having a baby in a few days! Hope you enjoy your date! We got your product in the store today…made me want to shut the store down and scrapbook. Alright, good luck with the delivery…you and the little one will be in my prayers! 🙂

I am sure that everyone will adjust just fine when this new cutie patootie arrives.

    Have a wonderful excited weekend; babies are so much easier to carry on the inside than the outside, but how incredible it will be to meet the littlest Swapp.

    Should I pack all the blue?
    ….or maybe some pink!
    I’ll settle for yellow….

    Daipers all packed…

    …bring it on now….

    …..she’s raring to go-
    Don’t keep us all waiting

    Congratulations on the baby, very pretty indeed. When my oldest son was born at the Wesley Hospital in Brisbane (almost 18 years ago)the night before the parents were due to take their child home the hospital nursery would “babysit” so that mother & partner could have a night out – great idea. Hope you took your babysitter up on the offer.
    Best regards – Cath G
