“Now we are ready.”
This is what we have been saying to each other for months now. After each little achievment we would make that statement…yet I realize that we will likely never be ready. And I am okay with that.
Birth class done.
Read the right books.
Car seat installed.
Diaper bag packed.
Met with a pediatrician.
Birth plan – in progress.
And countless other events that accumulate into “being ready”.
I am savoring these final days of my belly. I have enjoyed most every moment of this journey and I am over the moon excited to move into the next chapter. Baby still doesn’t have a name, but we are not worried about making up our minds when the time comes. He is incredibly active and I love to watch and feel him roll around. My energy isn’t what it used to be, but having summer break to relax and spend time with my husband has been a blessing. Patrick is going to be an amazing daddy.
This was our final day of birth class.
My fabulous husband also snapped a few photos…
Due date countdown: 5 weeks
My very talented friend Kelly Bauer met me and Patrick at Pike Place a couple of weeks ago and took some fabulous shots. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to pose for my friend. Thanks Kelly!!!
You can take a look at her work on KRB Studio’s facebook page.
My dear friend Brianne is expecting a girl in mid August, as well as bringing a girl home from Ethiopia
any day now at the end of the month. We are so excited for her and Eddie. I was graciously invited to her baby shower in June. I was unable to make the trip to Florida, but sent a gift instead. I saw a pin on her Pintrest board that inspired my gift to her growing family.
Love you Bri!
Headed east across Washington on I-90, then south through Yakima, we journeyed into Oregon. Washington Family Ranch was our first destination to visit with friends we haven’t seen in 7 years. After a few days we traveled to Portland to drop off Daisy the dog with my aunt and uncle. Then our gastronomic adventure began. Overall a great 4 days in Oregon.
32 weeks and 5 days.
Patrick and I are in full summer break mode. We spent the 4th in central Oregon at Washington Family Ranch with some friends. We’re now in Portland eating our way through the city.
