Time is winding down!!!!
I am happy to report that my little border has finally turned! He is now upside down which is exactly where I want him to be! WooHoo! His head is firmly locked in heading toward the light. Who knows when that journey will actually begin, but I know that it's coming. Sometime in the next three weeks we will be heading to the hospital as a family of 10 to come home as a family of 11. As a little side note, I have always liked the number 11. Maybe because my birthday is on the 11th. Brian and I were married on 11/11. It seems fitting that our little family will rest on the number 11. (at least for a while! :0)) Anyway, this little man will have a birthday and a name at some point in the next three weeks. I must admit that this has kind of caught me off guard. I have been very unprepared for this baby, which is pretty embarrassing seeing that I have done this about a million times. Life has been going full speed and I haven't had time to just sit and think about having this baby. I don't mean the actual giving birth of him, but I mean actually having him as a new little tenant in our home. What will he look like? How will he change our normal? Will he like us? How big will he be? What in the world will his name be? As my pregnancy winds down, I have been thinking more about these things. His clothes are washed. His bed is set up. I have bought some teeny tiny diapers. I have dug out my sling and nursing cover. Everything has been washed and readied for him . I have finally gotten all of the Christmas decorations down and put away. (Although my husband has re-decorated my entire living room in preparation for the super bowl with Steeler's paraphernalia.) I am "ready" for him in the practical sense of the word. I just need to get "ready" for him in the psychological and emotional sense. I am ready to hibernate and wrap myself up in a new baby cocoon! I can't wait to have him here to snuggle. He has deliciously chubby cheeks, which we saw in a recent ultrasound, that are just begging to be kissed. I can't wait to have nothing to do but sit and nurse him. ( Ok, so obviously I will have more to do than that, but that's all I'm going to do!) I am ready to get ready. I just pray that he doesn't decide to come during the Super Bowl next Sunday or Brian might cry!
