Bump Update: Week 40

Holy Cow!

As I hung up the 40/40 this week I couldn't quite believe that we had made it. I've been trying to play it cool but knowing that LBL could join us any day now is too exciting.

At this week's appointment our midwife said that she likes to tell first time moms that you're pregnant for 41 weeks. No matter how many times I hear this and despite the fact that I know that's how it works, I can't help but be super antsy and eager to meet our baby.

To know that at any moment labor can start and we will be meeting our LBL so soon is exciting and overwhelming. When I envision our first moments with LBL I don't even think about the fact that I'll finally know if our baby is a girl or a boy, instead I think about kissing that sweet little head and looking at Jus and knowing that we created something new.

As part of the wedding vows I wrote to Jus I spoke about how on our wedding day we were creating something new that had never before existed in the world and had all of the potential in the world. I find this to be even more true as we count the hours until we meet LBL. The love Jus & I share has created a family and when LBL arrives we'll have the opportunity to continue to spread our love by teaching LBL how to love. I can't tell you how happy this makes my heart, we're so blessed to be beginning this journey.
