Now all we need now is a baby.
Officially we are six weeks away from today for my due date, but my doctor thinks I'll go a little early, like I did last time with Emma, so I'm hoping for about a month. I have been WAY more uncomfortable with this baby over the last few weeks, I can't believe I still have to make it a month. Even with the discomfort, we are super excited.
We are going to try and go to an Olympics hockey game next Friday. We bought the tickets over a year ago before we were expecting, and now I just am going to keep my fingers crossed that my doctor still says its ok. If not, Shane will be finding a friend with a passport to take with him on the adventure.
Things I'm grateful for lately...
Shane has only looked at me once and said, "Wow, you really are looking pregnant...wow". For his sake and mine, thankfully he only said it once.
Emma is as excited about this baby as I am. She asks me daily how the baby is and what he's doing. She loves to feel my tummy. I feel bad her world is about to come crashing down around her...
Lots of family and friend support. I forget how much I rely on my wonderful siblings and parents to help with Emma (& future Recklingcito). She's lucky to have so much family around that loves her.
The gospel, my sweet husband, and our home. It's nice to know that I have my own little piece of heaven in my life here.
I must say this--I am SO looking forward to being on maternity leave. I'm sick of working, running around and dealing with our crazy schedule. Can't wait to be cooped up in the house all day with Emma & the new baby. It will be a nice break from the chaos of our life, or at least a new kind of chaos to deal with. Either way, I'm looking forward to the change.
