a lil sneak peek

I know I promised a birth story and update soon but the stream of visitors has not ended yet and I havent had a chance to sit down. Grammy and Grandpa had to leave this past week and life is sure different without their help here! Jayden asked me to send them this quick video. Enjoy a sneak peek of this little man!

In Waiting...

I can't even tell you how good it feels to be settled in and not living in piles of boxes. AHHH! It's kinda weird now. I dont know what to do with myself. Work kept me so busy and then school was out and we were so busy packing. Then last week i put myself on bedrest to keep the little guy in. Now we are moved and I feel like he should be here. No more waiting. Because i have been worried for a month now that this baby is coming early, he feels late! And when i started trying to induce labor on my own and it didnt work i just got frustrated. Being full term is a mix of emotions. I feel:
scared out of my mind
wishing for just one more day with jesse as just the two of us to a minute later jumping off the couch hoping my water would break.
And all these emotions flow back and forth in a matter of minutes.
Its hard being a first-time-mom because you just dont know what to expect, what to imagine, what to dream about. What will it be like to delver a baby? What will it be like to look into his eyes the first time? Will he have blonde or brown hair? How can you really wake up every 2-3 hours for feedings? What will life be like for us as a new family of 3? In less than 48 hours i will know all the answers to these questions. Wow.

4th of July

We made absolutely no plans for today because i had completely expected to be in the hospital or just coming home. But nope, i am still here. The champagne sits on the counter and the baby bags at the door. I have tried every myth out there to induce labor and just so everyone knows...none of them work. The baby literally doesnt come until the baby decides he wants to come. This is a very frustrating thought when i know all he is doing is packing on the weight so he can be just a little bit bigger. I for one was very happy with his estimated 7lb 2oz self this week. oh well. Happy 4th of July to you all!
