it's almost time

At my doctor's appointment today she gave me "my papers"...you know those papers you take the hospital when you're HAVING A BABY!
I don't know why, but my mind has not been able to keep up to my body the past 9 months. Somehow getting those papers made it all sink in.
This baby's due date is in 17 days.
So, on the way home I picked up some onesies, diapers and soothers, then I washed all the baby clothes {while having contractions...just in case the papers didn't bring me up to speed} I think I'm ready.

We are so excited to meet this new little baby, but I am also a little sad that I won't be pregnant anymore. I know it sounds crazy- I feel a little crazy typing it out...being sick, tired and sore all the time is no cup of tea, but when I think about what a miracle it is to be able to have a little baby growing, moving, kicking and hiccuping inside of me, all of the aches and pains are overcome by such an overwhelming feeling of gratitude. So, even though we are anxious to kiss those little cheeks, I am trying to remember to enjoy these days when it's "just the two of us"

Woo! SO exciting Amy! I know exactly how you feel. My mind hasn't really been able to keep up with my body either. But, believe it or not, there is a baby in there and you'll get to meet her soon! :)
