6 More Weeks

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 .


  1. oh i almost pulled a Julie and cried.

  2. That is not even funny Kell! Someday you'll be like me and cry easily too.
    I was just going to say I got choked up reading this post. But apparently that's not a surprise. But it was really sweet.

  3. I inherited the cry gene too and teared up just like Julie. I can't wait to play the Aunt role for your new little guy!

  4. How sweet! I can't even begin to express how it feels to hold that little one in your arms for the first time! I'm so excited for you!

  5. I can't wait to see both of you as parents! Deeds your going to be an amazing mom!

  6. you BOTH are going to be awesome.

    I can't wait for our little one's to be BFF's, and i can't wait for our future trips to disneyland.

  7. i really wasn't kidding about the crying thing. thanks mom i already have most of that gene.

    (ps i didn;t want to switch off of my moms cuz then it would have deleted it and im to lazy to retype it)
