getting there


It's hard to believe that we've arrived at the final weeks of this pregnancy!


At this point it seems everything is in order...

the house is clean, fridge and freezer stocked, bassinet assembled, the carseat installed, back-up bags are packed

...now we wait!


 And waiting isn't one of either of our strong suits!


While I spend my days wondering the house finding little projects to occupy my mind, Dan's mind is racing with a long list of things he hopes to accomplish before the little one arrive.


I'm thankful for this time, time to just be and enjoy the moment.


Time to prepare mentally and physically for the most dramatic change in our lives to date.


We are so eager to meet you little guy!  But for now we're content with watching you roll around in my belly, singing to you, and dreaming about your little personality!  See you soon!

@ 36 weeks.


marveling at the size of my belly - and wondering how it's going to get any bigger!

counting down the days to schools end/summer break/maternity leave

rereading this book and this book

napping in the hammock

dreaming about what the little man will look like

washing loads of baby clothes

prepping tons of cloth diapers

organizing every inch of this house like it's my job

eating massive salads for lunch and dinner

enjoying strawberries straight from the garden

drinking cup after cup of red raspberry leaf tea

filling the freezer with delicious meals

sleeping with the windows open

falling asleep to thunderstorms

packing hospital bags for baby and I - just incase

soaking up every moment with my hubby
