I’ve had this MAJOR yearning the past few days to hold my baby boy!! I really can’t wait for him to come!! So many mixed emotions going through my head. I can’t believe in just a few days/weeks it won’t be just be the two of us anymore. In some ways I’l miss it..but at the same time we’re both so excited. I know life is going to change so much for the both of us. I think the funniest thing so far is hearing people discuss what our child is going to look like. If it’s going to be brown or white-if it’s going to have Ryans nose or mine..haha!! Obviously I hope he’s cute but I really hope I get a funny child. Everyone always says this kid is going to be super hyper cause of me! I don’t know if that’s a good thing or bad.
I feel SO lucky that my kids going to have an Aunt like my sister. She seriously is the most giving, selfless person I know!!! I hope Luke grows up like that! She is always thinking of others..No matter what is going on in her world she will stop everything to make sure someone elses needs are taken care of. She has been buying all this stuff for Luke. He’s already being spoiled by his aunt and he’s not even here. I also hope he gets her great sense of style (in a boy way of course)! So this year has been alot more relaxing..Us siblings and my parents made a deal with each other we wouldn’t give each other gifts! I know once kids come we won’t be able to resist…but it was nice this year not worrying about what to give or spend money on. We all decided we would just spend money on doing things for those less fortunate or our own spouses…So guess what Ryan got me??!! Eyelash Extensions!! I have been talking about them for months!! I wanted to get them before the baby came because I already know I’m not going to want to go through the hassle of putting on all that makeup…but I do want to feel pretty in some way and my eyelashes are a big deal to me…BEST GIFT EVER!!!! I am trying to soak up all the time I can with Ryan. In a way I’ll miss it just being us two..but we are both so ready for our son to get here! He’s already changed us in so many ways. He makes us both want to be better Christians. I feel SO BLESSED that Ryan is going to be the father of my children. If our son turns out to look, act or live like Ryan…I will be even more lucky!
I’m 34 weeks pregnant now…I have NO idea when this kid plans on making a grand entrance. My mind is so clouded. I have no idea what to expect. haha Anyway if there was ONE piece of advice you would give me for these last few days/weeks leading up to Lukes birth…what would it be??
