One month to go!

Well folks I am down to my last month. I am officially a month away from my due date (August 28th). As we all know, babies do not usually come on their due dates so it can be earlier than a month or later than a month. I vote for earlier in the month! We are getting excited around here and are eager to become a family of four!

I have been organizing and going through all the cute girl clothes I have received from my two sister-in-laws who both have daughters. It is fun to picture Eliana in little dresses and bows and wonder rather she will have red hair like her mommy. Of course, she might have bright blond hair like her older brother. As I look through all the clothes, I am amazed at how small they are and how quickly Ethan grew out of those clothes and is now in Big boy clothes. I am looking forward to having a newborn in the house and all that having a new baby brings. It has been such a joy to watch my little boy as he grows and changes and learns new things. I can't wait to do it again! Of course, Josh and I remember the days of little sleep but we also remember those days did not last long in the grand scheme of things.

I will be going in for non-stress tests on a weekly basis until Eliana is born. My doctor wants to keep a close eye on Eliana to make sure she is healthy and to ensure what happened to Ethan does not happen to her. I went in for a test last week and all is well. I will keep you all updated as the day draws closer.

I'll give you a little piece of advice that a friend gave to me (she has 5 kids all 6 years old & under). She told me this when I had Evan. She said, "8 weeks. . .just remember 8 weeks. Something happens at 8 weeks and everything is ok."

For Evan & Jaxon, that rang true. I remember it being so hard to adjust to 2 kids, but I just kept thinking "8 weeks". . . it was so true! I'm not sure what happens, but something does!!

I hope you have an easy last month!! YAY!!
