Still Here & Happy...

I love looking at the countdown clock today and it reads a BIG FAT ZERO days left!! Today is one of my due dates and I'm still here and happy!! Other than some pressure downstairs, I dont have any more/less contractions than usual and feel relatively normal. I'm running errands like I'm preparing for a hurricane and will live as a "shut-in" for 3 months! You'd think a category 5 was heading our way. Lily is no hurricane, but I'm preparing for it like David, myself, a friend, a family member can't get us something if we need it. It's hilarious. It's part-nesting, part-ocd, part-lunacy!!

I will try to text to the blog with any updates if something happens and Jen will post pictures as soon as possible too once she is here. I can't believe we're even talking like this....when "she" is here. Our Lily will be here soon!

Will post, what will probably be my last, belly picture tonight. WOW!

I don't know when it'll sink in. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around the idea that I'm even actually pregnant!! xoxo

What a magical time you have had with this long anticipated pregnancy...you have literally soaked in every moment and it's been a joy to watch you change and grow! All of the "nesting" preparations are wonderful but just get ready for the changes in your heart...you know you love her now...just wait until you see her and know that your little girl is truly your heart and soul.

Dearest Kelly and David,

Many blessings to you and the next few days when little Lily will arrive. I'm keeping you all in my prayers and can't wait to visit when Jason and I return from Breckenridge. We'll see you soon and can't wait to cuddle your cutie!!! Big hugs, big cheers, and many kisses sent your way!!

Love, Janet

Oh, BTW...thought the "ticker" was cute. The one that said, "Okay. I'll admit I really liked it inside my mommy...." TOO CUTE!

Hey, Lily Grace come on out and play! Your mommy & daddy are the best! What a lucky Lily you are, to have such AMAZING parents!

We LOVE YOU, Lily! We can't wait to meet YOU! See you soon! :o)

I just read some of your story from the start - I cried. But, knowing that you have had a successful pregnancy, I cry with tears of joy and look forward to seeing your little white Lily and hearing all about motherhood!

Here I am said...

Thank you for your comment-- It looks like we're both waiting right now. I wanted to wish you lots of luck in your delivery and an easy labor!

Wow Kelly I can't believe the time is here. I know that you must be waiting on pins and needles. I can't wait to hear all about Lily's entrance into this world and see her beautiful pictures. She is so lucky to have you guys as her parents. I check the blog all of the time to see if there is any news. I am doing great. 8 weeks today.
