17 days and counting

The nursery is done, the tree is up and the presents are wrapped. It's 17 days until my due date and I'm feeling anxious for this sweet little boy to make his appearance. In anticipation and hope for an early arrival, we got everything ready as early as we could. As much as I'm looking forward to meeting him, I'm also motivated to have him to put the discomfort of walking, sitting and sleeping to an end. Bob and I are visiting my OB weekly at this point and she's reporting progress but not fast enough for me. In the meantime, I'm hanging out on the couch, reading and watching plenty of tv and coming close to tears everytime I see the "Having a Baby Changes Everything" ads. While my little boy may be the most obvious holiday gift this year, there's been another gift this year for which I'm grateful. My wonderful husband has watched plenty of birth videos, rubbed my legs at night and followed my directions for the household chores I can't do on my own anymore. He has been loving and supportive in his own quiet ways that show how excited he is for our little family to grow. I am blessed to have him.
