I have exactly one more week of doing this whole pregnant thing. Then reality will hit. Holy Moly! I now need to take care of this baby that has been partying for the last 9 months in my tummy?!?!
I feel like a elementary school aged kid counting down to Christmas break or the last day of school. I catch myself telling Matt, "You know, this is the last weekend as just us?" It’s a week filled with lasts. I can say "it the last
fill day here before we become responsible for our child." Each day from now till the 5th is lasts and then we will be parents... Wow
CRAZY COOL FEELING
Heavenly Father is putting a whole lot of trust in us starting the 5th. I am super excited. Knowingly scared. Extremely anxious. I am a whole lot of feelings. Just a bundle of emotions.
Matt and I have been brainstorming how to keep track of our kid’s lives. I’m not much into scrapbooking....I never caught the bug for it. Matt thinks is too expensive. My dad, being the organized man that he is, has 3 ring binders for each of us and filled it with pictures and other keep sake things. He used clear page protectors that had individual spaces for 4 x 6 pictures. I feel confident I can do that. So we are going to. Or something similar. Matt also had the idea to buy a USB for each child to put in the binder of all their pictures as well for a digital copy. I like it. Technology these days is amazing.
I hope to be one of those awesome moms like my sister-in-law Tiffany that captures so many fun memories with her camera. I know her kids will appreciate it one day looking back. It’s my goal to do the same.
