thirty eight weeks

we saw dr. peakes again tuesday and they hooked me back up to the monitor. you’re heart looks great so we’re still a “go” for inducing next week. i can’t believe you’ll be here in a few days. i think a lot about how it’s going to go in the hospital. what you’ll look like. what it’ll be like when we get you home. i’m honestly gonna miss you being in my belly. i mean, there’s a little human in there. i could sit and stare at my belly for hours just to watch you move around. being pregnant is probably the neatest thing i’ve ever experienced and i’ve loved every bit of it.

i feel pretty prepared for your arrival, but everyone keeps saying how different and difficult it’ll be adjusting to having a baby and lack of sleep. everyone keeps telling me to enjoy the quiet and time to myself while i’m home now. i think if i have to hear that one more time i may scream. i know everyone means well, but i’m getting so antsy already being at home all day, it’s really the last thing i want to hear. i want to believe this is the worst it’ll be and i’ll be so overjoyed when you arrive that the sleep deprivation won’t even be a factor. i’m sure that’s crazy talk, but a girl can dream!

daddy and uncle ric were talking about you coming last weekend. he said he’s really looking forward to the birth and excited to see what you’ll look like. he’s even not afraid of the sleepless nights, which doesn’t surprise me. it’s crazy to think we’re having a baby. WE are having a baby. who’d have thought 7 years ago we’d be married, much less having a baby. i love your daddy so much. to think we made you out of that love is just incredible. i’m really blessed to have him.

my crafty side is coming out this week. guess that’s what being stuck in the house with nothing to do does to a gal. i made a bow holder for the gazillion bows you have and tomorrow gigi’s bringing me a sewing machine so i can tackle curtains for your room. i’m going to attempt these ruffle curtains i saw online. eek!
