Baby... this week... 3 days

Oh dear LORD I am having a baby this week! We are (hopefully) 3 little days away from meeting our sweet baby! It hasn't quite hit me yet. I've been keeping myself pretty busy doing my "reading camp" (don't ask) and keeping the house clean for this baby's arrival and family staying. I've run about a million errands of random things "I won't want to do after baby is born." Lately we have celebrated our 3 year wedding anniversary, Father's Day, and our last week of just being us two. So crazy. I am swollen and huge with all of this fluid retention I've so lovingly gathered the last two weeks. My flip flops make crazy indentions in my feet and I look like a chipmunk (you won't be seeing a 39 week bump picture... sorry!) I know parenting a newborn will come with its many challenges, but I am SO ready to feel like myself again, sleep comfortably (I know I won't be sleeping much, but at least I'll be comfortable when I do :) and to meet our son or daughter!!!
It has been an amazing 3 years with this guy. I remember wondering if I could ever love him more than I did on this day. I can honestly say I love him so much more now than I ever have, and I can't wait to see him be a dad. Sigh...

We had a fancy little Anniversary dinner at Coach House

What a great dad I have!  He has always been such a fun dad- constantly being silly and making us laugh. I can't even imagine how fun he will be as a grandpa!

I have such a wonderful father-in-law! I am so lucky that our baby will have such a loving "Ganddad!"

Thomas's almost-a-father's day gift!

For our last doctor appointment and ultrasound last week, the tech put it on 3-D for a minute. I almost cried I was so excited to see our little love. Are you a girl or a boy? I have no idea but I do know I already love this little one so much it makes my heart hurt. See you soon, sweet baby.
