I am still pregnant. It is true. And I solemnly swear that I will not have this baby in secret and hide him until his first birthday.

It's funny because with 13 days until my due date, I am supposed to still be pregnant. Also I am not dilated or effaced and the baby is still REALLY high. Until he drops and engages this show is not going to be getting on the road. Poor Mac is incredibly anxious and wants the baby to be born NOW. It doesn't help that he will be taking 3 weeks off of work once the baby gets here. It is a lot to look forward too. As he described it, it's like waiting to go to Disneyland. Luckily things are moving along in other areas of preparation. The nursery is nearly done (I promise to post pics soon) with the dresser refinished and full of clean baby clothes and the art framed and hung. It was so cool (and strange) to drive to my weekly doc appointment with the carseat installed! I still need to get the hospital bag ready and do some cleaning but overall I think we will be alright if Gideon decided to come early.

Tonite the husbandit and I are going to the movies together and I am so excited. With all of the baby prep, most of our together time has consisted of baby shopping, nursery decorating, and doctor's appointments. I really like Mac and can't wait to spend some time with him that is not baby related.


  1. Yes that together time before baby is really important! For one it dose not happen very often after they come or on the other shoe you don't want to leave him. Just remember it is very important to keep your marriage relationship strong so that yall can be the best parents for Gideon.

  2. The nursery looks AMAZING. I'm not sure any photo could do it justice. It would win an award in a nursery decorating competition. I am certain.
