8 Weeks Left!

Today I'm officially 32 weeks pregnant! This 8 week mark brings so many feelings for me. For one, 8 weeks is still 2 months so it seems somewhat far away still. However, when I look at the 8 weeks in sections (like I go back to work in 3 weeks, have 2 weeks of prep work, then 3 weeks with the kids) it seems like it could fly by and that makes me excited/nervous/stressed/giddy all at the same time! I cannot wait to meet Max and I don't know how it's possible to be SO in love with someone you haven't even met yet, but everyday I love him more.

So in the next 8 weeks we have a few things to do around the house before we (okay, I) feel truly ready. The nursery is ALMOST done, but we need to put up blinds and the mobile and hand a clock and some frames. We also need to tailor the curtains some. I also need to wash Max's clothes and we need to assemble the swing, pack n' play, bouncer, etc.... I would love it if Ritchie would finish cleaning out the garage, patch, sand, and paint the baseboard downstairs, and we have to find room in the kitchen for bottles and bibs. Other than that we're feeling pretty ready. Going back to work brings a whole other list of "to-dos" that I'm not allowing myself to think about yet!

So, countdown continues and before we know it I'll be updating weekly on the plans for delivery!!! Since I have gestational diabetes they are watching Max's size carefully and will not let me go past my due date. So NO MATTER WHAT I'm having this baby within 8 weeks. I would prefer 6 or 7 weeks, but if he needs 8 to be ready then so be it!

I am so excited for you guys. It's so amazing to me to have known you for so long that in only 8 weeks (or less) you're going to be a mommy, and an amazing one at that.

I can't wait for more updates!!
