New Picture, New Car
Here is a picture at 36 weeks. I feel so big and uncoordinated and just about every part of me is swollen (see Natalie, it did happen:)) As of today we have exactly one month until our little William Christopher is due but I'm hoping I don't have to wait that long! And according to my mom, I won't. She is wagering my little one will arrive on Mother's Day and I would be perfectly fine with that:)
I now have weekly doctor's appointments and am getting anxious about being ready for our little guy. I feel like there is so much to do and not enough time to do it! I am also starting to feel a little nervous about both labor/delivery and the fact that I'm going to me a mom...A MOM! I've taken care of siblings and babysat on so many occasions that I couldn't even begin to count up, yet the idea that this is my baby--my responsibility wholly (and Chris's too)--is overwhelming. So don't be at all surprised if my blog turns into an "I need advice" blog in the near future:)
The title also states that Chris and I got a new car so I should probably mention that or Chris would be thoroughly disappointed. We actually won the car in an online poker tournament and are now worried about paying the taxes on it...............totally kidding! Chris and I have been saving our pennies and dimes waiting for an opportunity to purchase a new vehicle. We both feel a lot better about toting around our baby in this new car and have been very pleased with it so far. We feel so blessed to have the job we have, the (new) car we have, the apartment we have, and to be bringing a baby into this world. Life is pretty darn good and it's all too easy for us to forget how fortunate we truly are. We know that we owe all of our blessings to our Heavenly Father and His son, Jesus Christ.
Anywho, we will be sure to keep you all updated on baby news and hopefully you'll hear from us sooner rather than later:)
