life is good right now.
it's autumn and i am 35 weeks pregnant.
i am not comfortable and it's getting pretty crowded in my midsection
but getting to this point means that i'm almost there... with a new baby in my arms.
this morning i woke up with an strange feeling.
just as i was waking up i saw her.
i'm not sure if it was a dream or just my imagination but i saw her.
it was brief but i just loved her little face.
a sense of peace and joy overcame me.
then it hit me.
i will have a daughter in 5 weeks or so.
in a month there will be a new baby in our house.
i just can't wait.
i can't wait to hold her.
to see her little knees and toes.
to hear her cries and change her diaper.
i can't wait for jake to meet her.
i can't wait to see my husband hold her.
it's a moment that has already brought tears to my eyes.
he'll finally get to meet our girl.
five weeks is a long time to be this eager.
my last experience showed me that this is the hardest time for me.
i'm in the home stretch of this pregnancy
but i know i still have too long to go before i can get impatient.
so i'm keeping busy.
we spent last weekend in maryland at a family wedding on a farm
and we got a real good taste of fall. it was blissful.
my husband, who has been drowning in too many things to do at work,
had four days off in a row. it was a treat.
as was spending time with my aunts and uncles and cousins...
being very loud and observing people's interesting dancing skills.
then there is my upcoming trip to lake placid next weekend
(remember last weeks post? doc gave me the clear to go on our girls trip!!)
my mom is planning a little baby sprinkle for me and the babe the following weekend.
after that i'll just have to fill my time for three more weeks.
(can you say: pumpkin picking, mum shopping, and halloween?)
i may easily get tired and uncomfortable but
i'm absolutely happy to have all these things to fill my time and my mind.
it'll make the wait for my little girl just a tad more bearable.
