Were making progress!! Dilated to a 2-3!! They are either going to break my water soon or start a little bit of Pitocin soon!! But my contractions are consistent and intense enough that we might not need the Pitocin! I'm thinking it about time to get my epidural! Getting pretty uncomfortable!!
We are all checked in at the hospital an ready to go! I have gotten my IV in, just saw my Dr. and they are about to start my meds! Hopefully, thing go quickly and smoothly! Above all, we just want baby girl to be healthy! I'll keep you all updated as things progress!!

Maddox has finally started saying I Love You (pronounced: wuv you) back to us when we say it to him! It is seriously cute! I have no idea if he has any clue what it means but it melts my heart every time regardless! I will try to get it on video sometime to share!!

While we were gone my fabulous new diaper bag was delivered so that is super fun!! I absolutely love it and filled it up with all of Addi's stuff for the hospital as soon as we walked in the door!! Now that I have her bag packed, I think I am completely ready for her to make her grand appearance!! I know our families are really hoping she will hold out until her induction date on the 31st and I would love for them to be here when she comes but I have to be honest and say that I am SUPER uncomfortable these day and would really just like to not be pregnant anymore!! I am not sleeping well and I have to go to the bathroom literally every 30 minutes it seems. I am also having a lot more heart burn and when I do have contractions they are much more uncomfortable than earlier on in the pregnancy. Either way though, I know we only have 13 days max until she comes so I can make it even if she decides to wait it out!! We are definitely counting down the days now until we get to meet our baby girl!!

So, I saw this adorable onesie with huge flowers on the bottom at the mall and fell in love with it!! I really wanted it for Miss Addison to wear in her newborn pictures because obviously it is way too impractical to actually put on her to wear out...I mean the flowers would get completely smashed in the carseat!! The only problem was that it cost $40...which I felt was totally crazy. So off to Hobby Lobby I went to see if I could make it myself. I think it turned out so cute and I even made a matching hat!! AND the best part is all of it only cost me a total of $12!! Way better than the $40 price tag at the mall!!
There are still times when I have a hard time believing we are really having a little girl and freak out a little thinking what if she comes out a he...lol. But we are so excited for all the pink and bows that are about to be happening around here!!
At this point, I am still just having random contractions but every time I have one I wonder could this be the one that gets it all started?!?! Since we induced with Maddox I never actually went through the whole going into labor thing so it freaks me out a little that its going to happen at an awkward time or I'm not going know its happening and then have to rush to the hospital or something lol. Obviously, women do this everyday and it will be totally fine but its just a crazy feeling being this close...even the second time around!! I have no idea if she will decide to come before our induction date but I go to the doctor on Wednesday morning so I will find out if we have made any progress. I can definitely tell she has dropped and is pretty low but I haven't had any other symptoms telling me its going to happen anytime soon so we will see. I keep hearing that things typically go faster the second time around and you can go from nothing to having a baby pretty quickly so I'm just trying to be prepared for her to come at anytime!!
I updated a lot on here when I was in labor with Maddox and I am going to try to do the same with Addison!! It is so nice for me to be able to look back at that now and see how things progressed and be able to remember the experience because without being able to look back at it I know I would forget!! Stay tuned for an update from my appointment on Wednesday and then of course a full report when she decides to come!!

They got here on Wednesday evening just in time for dinner so we headed to Red Lobster. When we got to the house Maddox got to stay up past bedtime to play for a while with Kiki and Aunt Mo!!
On Thursday morning we loaded up and headed to the Denver Zoo. It was a really nice day outside and as usual Maddox loved it. His favorite animal this time was the frafs (aka giraffes)! We spent a couple of hours there and then headed to a delicious Italian buffet called Cinzetti's. If you are ever in Denver it is def a must!! Thursday night, we had dinner at Pei Wei and then my mom and sister joined in on a big surprise that I had no idea about but that will get a post of it's own later today or tomorrow!!
