The 38th Week

We have made it to 38 weeks  with a singular road block. A massive head cold developed at week 37 weeks that has been less than cooperative in moving on which also coincided with extreme loss of energy.  Yikes!  I’m in rough shape over here. Poor Cale got to spend his last irresponsible birthday taking care of his sick and very pregnant wife.  He’s become an expert watermelon cuber… I’ve been eating at least one a week with no shame. Welcome to adult hood! Really though, we’ve been so so blessed to have an easy and uncomplicated pregnancy. And, while I really could have done it without the cold, can’t complain about anything. Albeit an easy pregnancy, I’ve figured out why there are 9 months of pregnancy… It takes that long to decide labor really isn’t the worst thing that can happen to you.  With days upon days of temperatures in the 90’s and a very healthy/large (or so it seems) baby on the way, I’m counting down the minutes until baby boy makes his grand entrance. We waver…

Coming Soon

I don’t think patience has ever been my strong suit. Thankfully, it’s normally only tested by cookies that take too long to bake and winter months that drag on and on and on. Lately though, my patience has been tried by seemingly every aspect of my life. Rather than boring you with the long list, I’ll skip to the cutest blessing I’m waiting for: Megan and Cale’s baby boy is coming soon! Our family got together in Colorado’s Rockies last weekend, and I got to spend some quality time not only with my amazing family, but also with my camera and a few willing models. I could not be happier and more excited for Megan and Cale (and for having another baby to nap with when I visit home). I’ll post pictures of the twins’ six-month-old shoot soon too…
