88 Days to go…

Morning, sweet Baby!

We had another visit to the doctor yesterday. It went well and your heart beat sounded good!

We go to the specialist in 2 weeks and back to our normal doctor in 4 weeks…then after that…we’ll see our doctor every 2 weeks.

It’s going by so fast and it made me think about how fast time flies.

I remember being in Jr. High and couldn’t wait to get to high school. Jr. High was fun but I was still chunky.

Mommy and her BF Shauna in 8th grade!

I remember 9th grade and feeling all grown up as the two Jr. High’s merged and we met the kids from the other side of the tracks.

I then couldn’t wait to get into high school – and get to the REAL high school – where the upperclassmen were.

High school was fun!
The upperclassman I liked – yup – that’s your Daddy!

I loved high school and had a great experience. When, I got to high school, I couldn’t wait to turn 16 so I could drive. Then, after that, I couldn’t wait to be 18 so I could go off to college.

I went to college and couldn’t wait to be 21 so I could “go out” legally (we’ll talk about this when you get older).

Daddy and I – Freshman year at Texas Tech….ummm…I had one to many Kool-Aids

Then, I couldn’t wait to graduate from college at 22 so I could get into the “real world.”

Then, I was excited to get married…and then…everything from there is a blur.

Best. Day. Ever.

Life happens so fast. So much of my life, I’ve wished to get to the next part of it. Which now, looking back, is crazy because when I was IN the moment – I truly enjoyed every part of it.

For the first time in a long time, I want life to slow down. Don’t get me wrong, Little One, I can’t wait to meet you, hold you, love you…but I want to cherish each minute. I don’t want to wish this time away so I could get to the next step. Right now, it’s just me and you. Of course we have Daddy and the pups, but most of our days, its just the two of us. I get to feel you kick. I get to talk to you in my thoughts when you’re sleeping silently in my belly. We have conversations all throughout the day – and it’s just us.

I watch as Daddy writes to you, readies your room, works hard for the arrival of his new baby girl – and I try to capture every moment in my memory- because I know this time is limited before you get here.

Sweet Baby, I know you’ll be just like me and be excited about the next step and the next part of your life as you live your day to day. I just want to remind you to cherish the present because one day you’ll wake up and life will be happening all around you. Treasure each day, every second, and you’ll see the amazing things God is doing in this moment.
