4 Weeks...


I can't believe that in about a month our girl will be here. I know I sound like a broken record on my blog, but we are just so incredible blessed. 3 years ago, we were in a much different place. Now we get the privilege of having a little boy who hugs and kisses us everyday and a little girl who will be snuggling close soon. I am so ecstatic, but also scarred. I can't believe we are bravely going to juggle two under two. I am also freaking out over the fact that I have to leave Charlie for a few days while Evie is born. I have only ever been away from him overnight and three days away will be really hard. He will visit, but I am not used to being away from him that long. The next on my to-do list is to pack my hospital bag. This week marks the start of weekly appointments so I'll be updating!

Kick, Jab, Elbow!

Our little Evie is a mover! Charlie never moved this much and Evie never stops. I love that she is her own spunky person even before she is out in this world. I am still freaking out at the idea that she is going to be in or lives soon. We have nothing ready and I have no idea how I am going to do it, but yet somehow I am calm... Somehow all that I can think about is how grateful I am that our family is expanding... I'm not worried about her room because I know she'll always have a loving set of arms to sleep in and honestly, not much else matters...

We should however get some more clothes because I do fear that she'll be wearing only diapers or Charlie's out of season boy hand-me-downs...

Charlie is also AMAZING! He is learning so much and growing so big! He knows body parts (head, ears, nose) and follows simple directions (throw this away please). He has his father's goofy disposition and mine anal retentiveness. And did I mention how cute he is?

His chubby cheeks melt me.
He gives kisses and hugs and say "hi" and "uh oh".

I am so incredibly blessed.

I am also so incrediably pregnant.

Due date is March 1st - C-Section is scheduled for the 8th - I bet she joins us in February!
