Getting ready for baby!

Well, it's just about baby time.  My due date is 2 weeks away and this baby's about ready to come.  The most important thing we had to do to get ready for baby was to get James sleeping in a toddler bed and I'm happy to say that it was a success.  He's been sleeping great in his new bed for about a month now.  It took a few nights of transitioning and eventually a lock on the door, but everything worked out and now he's sleeping as great as ever.  

He is also trying to get as much daddy time as possible.  I think he's definitely going to miss the attention from Hans more than he'll miss it from me.  We're trying to let him get his fill before the baby comes and hopefully we'll be able to still give him the attention he needs after.

Other than that, the crib is ready to go, baby clothes are washed and we have a plan in place for babysitters for the big day.  The only thing we don't have is a name.  Kind of important, I know.  We've narrowed it down to Hiram, Thomas, and Noah, but we can't quite pin one of them down.  We're both giving this a lot of thought and hopefully we'll have made a decision in the next two weeks.  Other than that, it's just a waiting game.  I can't believe how this time has just flown past and that James is about to be a big brother.  We are so excited and can't wait to watch our family grow.
