A Bump & A Pup

We are down to 1 day left on our "official due date" calendar. Tomorrow, Friday will be 40 weeks that I have carried this little munchkin inside. 40 weeks of taking care of her while she grows and taking care of myself along the way. If she stays too snuggled in there I will be induced Thursday, November 20th. Either way we know she will be here in 1 week and my husband and myself are both ecstatic.

The house is very warm and all set for her. Her sweet swing stands in the living room where we turn it on occasionally to get the fur bur babies adjusted to the noise and movement. In all truth, I turn it on pretending Autumn is laying in it. :)

All of her teeny clothes, socks, mittens and hats are so soft and smell like Dreft, the slightest aroma of clean cotton. Our bags have been packed for weeks now and hanging out in the car beside her car seat.

We will soon be a complete family.. any day now.

Awaiting Our Little Munchkin's Arrival

It sure has been a while since I wrote. With all intentions I was hoping to be able to post for 100 days prior to the arrival of our little one but getting ready for our little munchkin took up all of our free moments, which I do not regret at all. 

With only 9 days +/- until she gets here we are so very anxious and excited.I must admit that the last month of pregnancy sure is quite different than the other 36 weeks of pregnancy. It's a beautiful experience carrying the little one in there, the kicks, the wiggles, the hiccups and knowing that you are taking care of something so delicate. 

However, when it comes down to the last few weeks all that you want is to meet your little one. We imagine what she'll look like, the shape of her eyes, her nose, her lips, if she will have freckles or hair along with all of the colors of her features. We want to hold her and hear her cries. We want her to wrap her fingers around ours. 

Everyone says to be patient, but when you are this close and physically/emotionally ready, no one unless if they're pregnant at that exact moment or remembers being pregnant can understand the anticipation at this moment in time. 

So here's to the next 9 days give or take.. hopefully sooner than later, we will meet our sweet little girl and announce her to the world.
