39 Weeks Update ... Reflections On Adding To Our Crew


This is me yesterday. There's a baby in there!

(I always love it when I hear kids ask their mom about me, "is there a baby in her belly?" ... right when I'm feeling like the largest, most PREGNANTEST person in the world, and then the innocence of youth -- it's the best.)

I'm right around 25 or so pounds up, Baby Boy is growing perfectly, last heartbeat was around 138, and man alive are we anxious to see his face.

Will he come out bright-eyed, darker skinned and dark-haired like Camille?
Or will he be perfectly fair and snuggly from the start like Charlotte?

How can I balance three. How can I balance three!!!
I keep reminding myself, one day at a time.
And from the wise advice of a friend, we can do anything for a short amount of time. Anything. 

I just want to be a good mom, and a PATIENT mom, and a FUN mom, but I also know I have to cut myself some slack. There are going to be days when I'm running on about three hours of sleep, days where I am a little too quick to snap at the girls, but also days when I get all three to the park with filled water bottles, sunscreen on faces arms and legs, and I feel like I can conquer the goshdarn world. 

Big changes ahead ... sooooooon!
Any guesses on weight and length?!

  3. No matter whats going on on the inside, you make the outside look so put together! You're a great mommy and from the heart of a mommy of 5...after 2 kiddos-the rest is gravy! The hardest transition is from 1 to 2. Above that, 3 is the same as 5! You got this! I say 8pounds3oz and 20.5 inches and a fast delivery! Little boys are dreamy!��❤⚾️

  7. You look wonderful, and I'm anxiously awaiting your good news. Like Justine said, being a good mom looks different on different days. Some days it means "just getting by," and others it means "mom of the year." Praying for a safe delivery for you.
