Time is fading, he'll be here soon!!

July 1, 2008 when I first found out I was expecting the joy filled my heart. All the emotions a mother feels knowing she'll have a little one poured from my heart. Then the thought of March 11, 2009, seemed so far away. Trust me when I say, the time has flown by. I haven't the foggiest idea where the past 8 months have gone.

Reality is setting in. There is another change coming for us in just a few, very short 35 days. Our little family of three will soon be four and I'm so anxious to hold my little boy. As everyone told me with the second you are more laid back, relaxed, not as worried (well, I'm still worried... but we won't get into that), but it's true. Tucker's bedding finally arrived yesterday!! It is precious, exactly what I wanted for my little guy. Clothes are in the dryer as we speak, and I have another load to start. All those little clothes, the smell of baby entering our home yet again!! Just makes me smile!!

I've been having a lot of braxton hicks, or I suppose that is what they are. I didn't have many with Carter, that I knew of, but this time something is cramping up in my stomach and I suppose that is what I'm feeling. My waddle, well let's just call me Daphne duck! Seriously!! By 5:00 each evening it has really set in and I waddle from side to side. :) My breathing, that is a joke all on it's own!! I huff and puff just to change the way I'm sitting on the couch. Walking, just ask my friend Renee, it takes every little ounce of breath within me. We went shopping yesterday and each chance I had I found the closest chair to where she was and plopped down!
35 weeks...

I had my 35 week appointment this a.m. and according to the doctor this is progress being made! Granted, it's only a whopping 1 cm. dilation, but progress is progress to a pregnant woman. Trust me! :) My little boy will be here before I know it. I'll be holding him, kissing him, and in awe of how awesome our God is once again! I'm ready to hold him. I'm ready to be a momma to two precious little cowboys. I can't wait. The room is ready, well I still have a few things to hang on the walls, but he can come home and have his own little place in this big world. His bag is packed, my bag is packed, and Carter's is 1/2 way packed. He keeps unloading some of the stuff I put in there. I suppose packing one bag last minute is better then three!!

Anywho, that's an update on me and my growing tummy. My ever changing world, ready for another change! Can't wait to see you Tucker, I love you!

Patiently waiting...
