Waiting.....

4:58 PM


Waiting. Pretty sure that no one really likes to do it. And yet there are times in our lives when we really do not have a choice!

For me-this would be one of those times!

Today I am 39 weeks and I am waiting.

I have the room ready for my little man and so now I am waiting for him to come so I can start using the adorable boppy pillow my friend mailed me, start dressing him in the insane amount of onesies people just showered us with (this kid seriously has clothes for like the first year of his life), start using that recliner our amazing grounds manager gave me to rock my sweet baby boy as I feed him...

I can hardly wait to start so many things-but, we are still waiting.

That is ok.

Because I am realizing that never again will my life ever be the same once this little man makes his highly anticipated entrance into this world.

Never again will it "just be" Jason and I.

Never again will I smile as he moves and twists and nudges me from inside. I love feeling him move and watching him move! Soon, I will get to see it in person. Never again will he be inside me.

Life is going to change.

Waiting for that change is hard but even this is just a season.

And you know what...even just writing this-I have realized that I am ok with it!

Yes, I would love to not be a beached whale, be able to roll over in bed, not waddle anymore....etc...but that is going to come soon enough. So in the meantime-

I am going to try my best to enjoy this time and make the most of these last few days before he arrives...while I am waiting.

  1. This last stretch is by far, the hardest. You can't sleep, can't breathe, can't walk, and take potty breaks more times then you would care to admit. But...it will be over so fast, your head will spin. I am ready NOW and still have 4 weeks left. LOL!

    Hang in there...it will be sooooooo worth it! Can't wait to meet your little man. :) Blessings! :)
