remember to breathe.




All of a sudden, things around here are pretty wild. Looks like we're going to be parents a little bit sooner than expected! I'm getting induced (for health reasons) early next week. Thankfully all the excitement and anticipation has left little room for nerves at this point...

For now I'm scrambling to wrap up a few work projects and prepare as much as possible. It's quite hard to focus when all day I'm imagining what she will look like and what it will be like to finally have her here with us and how we're going to adjust to a new life. Eeep!

p.s. Another shot of my 38-week belly. It's out of control but I'm going to try and enjoy it these last few days.

  14. This time last year I was put on bed rest. My baby was due the 12th, but she didn't come until the 18th. It was so exciting and scary at the same time... you almost feel like a ticking time bomb.

  29. so thrilling! i'm really excited to meet her on the interweb. good luck with everything! and kate shouldn't be so modest because i think she has the name pinned down. yes, we discussed what you're going to name your baby. choose to be flattered rather than think we're cuckoo.
