It feels like all we've been doing since Halloween is waiting. November was a very hard month for Ryan and I - mentally, physically, and emotionally. December has proven (so far) to be a much better month - but now we are just ready to get the show on the road.
Today marks the 10-day countdown to our due date. That means tomorrow will be 9 days. As in single digits, people.
Things (with my bod) are happening and changing around here, so if I had to guess - it won't take until our due date for this baby boy to make his debut. With that said, I've never done this before and have absolutely no idea. So, hopefully I didn't just jinx us/myself.
'Cuz did I mention that we are ready to get the show on the road?
Ryan and I are truly blessed to have a huge support system around us - family, friends, and co-workers, who are all very excited and waiting impatiently for this babe to make his entrance.
- My Momma and little sister frequently call to check in to see how I'm doing (as if I would intentionally not let them know if something big was happening)
- My dad has been keeping track of how many weeks I am for some time (and gets very excited when he knows that Sunday's are the days that we bump up one).
- At the news that certain things were happening, my brother got Christmas-morning-excited and declared that he would not be going to work so he could wait in the waiting room. I assured him that he needed to calm down.
- There is officially no topic that is off the table between my sister-in-laws and I. Body parts, bodily functions - you name it and we've now discussed it. Something tells me these conversations are only the beginning of over-sharing (in a good way, of course).
It's an amazing feeling to know that not only are Ryan and I excited to meet our baby boy, but we are surrounded by people who are just as excited... And tired of the waiting.
He is so loved. And doesn't even know it yet.
Now, come on baby!
