Well, here we go -- Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. That's it! Only 4 more days to put up with a big belly and kung-fu going on inside of it! There are those convinced I will go into labor before Friday but so far I'm just not seeing the signs of it. I'm at peace with knowing the Lord is in control, whatever the outcome. Any guesses on baby size? I don't have a specific guess, but Madison was 8 lb. 5 oz. and, if I had to guess, I think I'd go with bigger vs. smaller. We'll find out!
Aside from counting down to the new birth, Madison hit 19 months last week. Was it really that long ago we were going to the hospital having her? Wow. She went from infant to toddler so fast in just the past few months. Matt & I also celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary last week. I've been joking with Matt, "Ready for a sleepover getaway next weekend?" Of course, a weekend getaway at the hospital isn't the most romantic of vacation destinations.
This past Saturday was a special and almost bittersweet day for us. We were actually home together as a family all day (for probably the first time in a month), and it was just a sweet, relaxing time. It was a little bittersweet though because it was the last time we'd spend a full day together as our little family of 3. We eagerly look forward to welcoming the new arrival but at the same time, it will change the dynamics of our family and never quite be the same again. So we treasured the time together.
