I cant believe I have only 6 more weeks until my due date. Sometimes it seems like a long time and sometimes (not often enough) it seems very short.
Lately I have been doing what I can to prepare for our baby's arrival. The nursery is almost finished, just a few little details left. The baby's clothes are all washed and put away. My hospital bag is getting packed. I am trying to wait patiently.
Sometimes I think about the excitement of the baby (and try not to think about the scary stuff like labor) I think about what it will be like to hold my baby in my arms for the first time and to see Travis hold him. It's weird to think I am going to be a mom. As long as I can remember I have always been the Aunt, a role I have loved playing! I am sure I will love playing the role as mommy even more!
I can't wait to see Travis with our baby boy and see him as father. I have seen Trav in so many different ways. I have seen him as a best friend then as the high school crush to the high school boyfriend. I have seen Travis as the boy I fell in love with (and still am in love with) to the boy that fell in love with me. I have seen him as the boy I married and as the man who was sealed to me in the temple. Now I can't wait to see Travis as the father of our baby!
The cradle was given to us by Trav's mom .
