The Countdown is On!

Yep, the baby is due in about 2 weeks. I can't believe how fast this pregnancy has gone. We had a little bit of a scare and thought that baby was going to come early, so we kicked into high gear (both mentally and physically) and got the hospital bag packed. Now I feel a bit more prepared... I'm ready to have this baby!

Now it's a bit of a waiting game and enjoying the rest of summer. We've been going to the splash park quite a bit which Anders loves and is good for me. We also have a couple of BBQs and friend gatherings which will be fun. And to be honest I'm starting to get excited about Fall... I know I should be probably living in the moment and enjoying Summer, but I just help myself. Fall is such a fun time for us... I just love the crisp mornings and fresh air. Opening the windows and cooking something hot and delicious makes me feel so content. And Fall is the start of our family's birthday season... we'll start off with baby, move into Derek's day, then Anders, Christmas, Anniversary, New Years, and wrap up with me . Thew!

Lots of good to look forward to!

Loving This Little Man

As the impending due date approaches I am beginning to think about how our little family is going to change. I know that I'm going to grow to love this little addition (already do) but I also know that my time with my special little man is also going to change. I remember my mom telling me that a couple of days before she had my brother she held me and just cried. I didn't really understand that until now. Every little moment with Anders is so special. Especially seeing him grow. I love all his hugs and kisses. I love how he says "hi da!". And most of all, I love those big blue eyes and special cuddles right before bed.
