less than a month!

The baby is due in less than a month! Of course, I, of all people, know that this doesn’t mean the baby will be here in a month. (Ruby was born 14 days after her due date – which I can’t even think about right now.) But, it is so exciting to be that close to this little one’s arrival. There aren’t words for how ready I am to be done with pregnancy.

Ruby is super excited and completely convinced the baby is a girl. She babies her dolls and stuffed animals. I catch her rocking a doll, patting its back, saying, “It’s okay, you don’t need to cry.” and pretending to change diapers! We’ll see how it all plays out when the time comes, but at least she is pretending so sweetly.

Meanwhile, I’m busy bossing John around about what we still need to do before I go into labor, fretting about how Ruby will do with all the commotion, trying to mentally prepare myself for everything that is about to happen, and trying to find a more comfortable position on the couch.

  1. Lady! You could not have said any of that better…I’m going to show Adam your post too, maybe he’ll take comfort (as I have) that he (we) are not alone in the wonderful, complex, and stressful process of pregnancy and parenting!

  2. it sounds like things are falling into place as you await the arrival of the babe. It was great to hang out with you guys and Z’s been asking to go to Ruby’s house and play lately.
    It looks like your due date and my defense date are on the same schedule. let’s hope we both make it to the finish line without too much delay!
