This is my cute little cousin, Cassie. She text messaged me this picture today. I love it! It made my day! She's very excited about all the babies being born into the family. Thanks Cassie for the picture :)
So I am scheduled to be induced tomorrow! So unless there's a huge amount of women who show up tonight to have their babies, I'm good to go! Thank heavens! I went to the doctor this morning and he was almost suggesting I wait another week until my eyes filled up with tears. Then he changed his mind. Who says crying doesn't get you anywhere? I'm not a cryer, but you gotta do what cha gotta do!
I don't know who's the most excited for me to have this baby; Tanner, Greg or me? I was crazy and made 9 batches of strawberry freezer jam this afternoon so I'm not feeling anything but swollen ankles!
Today was a day of "lasts" for Tanner. We went to run erands and Tanner said, "This is my last day of running erands as an only child." We were eating dinner and Tanner says, "This is my last dinner as an only child." Needless to say, Tanner is excited! He probably knows more about pregnancy and labor than any other 11 year old out there. What a good sport and support he's been during this pregnancy!
I'm not sure if Greg is more excited to have the baby or excited about the fact he gets to take a week off of work?!? No, Greg is sooo excited! He can't wait for this baby to get here. He is going to be such a good dad!
Honestly, I have mixed emotions...I feel like I'm beginning another chapter in my life. I have LOVED the one-on-one time I've been able to have with Tanner. It hasn't always been the quantity I would have liked, but it has definitely been quality time! I just hope that the bond Tanner and I have will always remain strong.
I'm a little nervous to basically be starting over again. As I've said before, I go into Babies R' Us and break out into hives because for some reason the reality hits there!
This posting was really more a journal entry for me than anything. So if anyone is still reading to this point, wish us luck and include us in your prayers tomorrow :)
