Last week during a quiet moment, it hit me how much I already love this baby, and I cried. Maybe it had something to do with this beautiful lullaby shared by a friend, or maybe it was because I've been sick for over a week and am really lacking sleep. But probably it's just because my heart was going to burst.
It also hit me how there's so much left to do to get ready, and we've done almost nothing. Aside from a few clothes and a crib that should be arriving any day, there aren't many signs of a baby coming home. Time to get to work.
That's my bump at 29+ weeks. An old lady at church told me it looked like I was blossoming... that's a nice way to put it. Oh, and how sweet is the vintage rocking horse? My sister-in-law Kathryn refinished it and gave it to us for Christmas.
