It's a Date!

Thanks to my dad for re-gifting his Scotts 20yr club tickets for dinner and movie. This may be the last date Brad and I get for awhile. We saw 'Something Boworred' at the Arena Grand Theatre and then walked down the street to Buca Di Beppo.

This may be our last photo as a family of 3.

Hope everyone had a lovely Mother's Day!

I know I did! We had a family get together at my mom's and the weather was fantastic. Then we got to see my nephew play soccer in Marysville. He was great and they won! I'll have some pics of that to share later this week.

Preggo Update: 38 weeks. I never thought I'd still be pregnant and quite frankly I'm really tired of being pregnant at this point. I'm getting HUGE and it's uncomfortable. I can't sit or stand for any amount of time without my legs/feet swelling up to elephant-like size.

We're ready here at the house (I think). Everything is set up and ready to go.

Emotionally I'm not sure I'm ready. Those old guilty feelings are coming back. I am sad that these are the last few days alone with Dane. He's so excited but I'm worried that I won't be able to provide the same level of attention and care and that he'll feel slighted. I worry that I won't be able to love the new baby the same way I love my first........I'm sure that's normal......right??

Regardless, We're about to embark upon a new adventure around here!

Wish us luck!!


  1. Life is crazy...that's what makes it so great!

  2. Let's try this again...

    Yes, it is totally normal to worry you won't love the second as much as the first, but I promise you will! Just when you think you don't have any more love to give, it's like your heart grows bigger.

    And no, you won't have the same time to devote to Dane, but that is totally normal too and nothing to worry about. He'll be too concerned with taking over the big brother role and being your little helper Just look at you with your siblings - You guys are all so close to each other.

    All that being said, I totally understand those feelings and am starting to have them again myself. Sometimes I wish I was going to have more time with Lincoln before the new baby comes since he is still pretty young, but I know things will all work out and fall into place just like they did when he was born.

    And last but not least - You don't look huge at all! I look like you do in that picture, except I still have 2 1/2 months left to go!

    Can't wait to meet your little girl :)

  3. Thanks girls, I appreciate your support, I really do!
