A light...

There's a light at the end of the tunnel. I can see it and feel it. 35 weeks along and 5 weeks to go. And this has been a long journey. Though I know it has flown by so quickly, it has also drug on slowly. I don't know how else to consider this time other than a crazy timeframe that I will cherish forever.

Pre-Baby


We are pregnant!!!


It's a girl!


It's October, which means we are 22 Weeks along - 18 to go!


It's December, getting closer! Weeks 29-31


January!! Not too much longer to go...


Only 1 repeat shirt... haha. Can you believe how big this belly has gotten even from the beginning of January to now? My maternity shirts are almost not fitting anymore. Belly getting bigger means shirts getting shorter..  haha - soon enough I will get to wear a tent or something like that... haha.

And we are nearing the end - we have assembled all the furniture and baby gadgets - we are as ready as we can be. Her room is painted, put together and ready to go. I've got clothes in the dresser and categories in the closet. Her bookshelf is getting fuller and fuller as the days go by. All I can do at this point is wait for her to arrive.



My family and friends blessed me with a baby shower! I cannot even express how amazing and humbling it was. Just to be provided with almost everything that we need for Lorelei. Blessed is even an understatement to express how I am feeling.

I feel like this page has been neglected in a way because I have dove so deeply into preparing for her and preparing my family. I have been writing to her every week. We have spent a lot of time figuring out what projects need to be completed before she arrives and getting those projects done.

Soon and very soon we are going to meet her and I cannot wait to blow this page up with cutie little pictures of my girl!! Excited! There is absolutely a light at the end of this tunnel and as we chug forward quickly, I press the brakes a little just to take it to the end slowly. I just want to be sure that we are all healthy and ready. I have waited a very long time for this and I am okay waiting a couple more weeks to make sure she is fully cooked!
