Waiting Game...

To pass the time during these final week(s) I'm staing busy and doing a bit of the following...working, going to lunch and dinner with girlfriends, shopping, cleaning and enjoying every moment with Steve as just the two of us. Everyday we find ourselves talking about the changes that are about to happen in our lives and I don't think we'll truly know how to process/embrace these changes until we're faced with them. The main thing we talk about is how we will soon be 100% responsible for another human life - we're both very independent so it's a lot to take in, but we're ready. The question now - is Raleigh ready? I had my weekly appointment this morning and he's apparently a bit too comfortable and not ready for this crazy world...yet. My next appointment is on my due date - April 21, exactly 40 weeks so we'll just wait and see what happens. My guess is that he'll arrive on April 23.

We're sort of dying to know what he's going to look like so we've gone through our old baby albums and pulled out a few photos of us as kids. As with all parents we hope he's healthy, but I also hope he's as handsome as his dad.

You will be the best parents. Since there's no way to fully prepare, it sounds like you are spending your time wisely. Enjoy your last 'week' as a party of two :)

Love the pictures of you two kids. I am so excited for you and anxiously awaiting the news! If you have any control over it (which I know you don't), please have your baby boy before April 22nd so I can meet him on my layover. xoxo

Thinking of you two, can't wait to meet the new little one. You will be a wonderful mama. And Steven Dean will also be a precious papa. I love you both. Carter and Nolan are excited for the arrival of their new friend.
