In just under four days we will be holding our baby! Gah!
I asked Scott if he’s ready for all of this and this was his response:
“Yes, I’m ready! I’ve been ready for a long time. It’s like someone says to you ‘Hey, you’re going to get cookies on this day’ but that day is like 9 months in the future. You want the cookies right now, but you’re like, ‘It’s ok, I can wait’. Then all these people tell you about their cookies and how good they are and what they did to get them. ‘It’s worth the wait!’ they say. ‘I baked my cookies at 350. I baked MY cookies at 355. You should bake your cookies at …. ‘ blah blah blah. Towards the end you don’t care about anyone else’s cookies, you just want YOUR cookies.”
Give the guy his cookies! … I mean, baby!
We are ready though … or as ready as we can be for something like this. I’m ready for the attention of it all to be off of me. I’m so tired of answering the same questions, “How are you doing? How are you feeling? Isn’t your due date past? Oh you’re having the baby this week? That’s probably good, because you are so big! You look like you could pop at any moment! Do you have back pain? Are you swollen? ….” And it goes on and on and on.
I know people mean well. I really do. And I appreciate how concerned and excited people are about this pregnancy, but when you hear this every single day, it just wears you out.
Four. More. Days. 🙂
Anyway, we got our maternity photos back this weekend and they are AWESOME! We had so much fun taking them. I also got around to taking photos of the nursery. I started to have some Braxton Hicks contractions this weekend, so I figured I better get on that! So, enjoy the deluge of photos. 🙂
And here’s the last belly photo:
We also were able to buy a car this weekend! I’m telling you, we got a bunch accomplished this weekend … which is probably why the BH contractions started. Baby G knows it’s go time!
So, the next post will probably be Baby G’s introduction. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Thanks for stopping in!
