3 weeks

That's how much time is left until we become a family of 4!  I can't believe how fast these last few weeks are going, and while part of me is a bit nervous, I am mostly really excited.  I can't wait to meet our son, and at this point I am feeling like I would much rather have him on the outside than on the inside.

I feel very large these days and  am finding it more and more difficult to do simple things, like put on pants.  I'm having a lot more aches and pains and last night I hurt my back, but thankfully Rob was home to help me because I literally couldn't move.  It feels better today,  however, it made me realize I need to be more careful over the next couple weeks.

I've been feeling emotional recently that it won't just be Aiden anymore.  I know that it will be great for him to have a brother, but I know it's going to be an adjustment for him.  He's been especially sweet recently; understanding why I can't play on the floor, or always concerned when I groan getting off the sofa.  He's always asking me how I am feeling.

He's a very sensitive child, and it makes me wonder what his brother will be like.  I have a feeling they will be very different.  

But it won't be long til we find out, and we're excited!


  1. I hear ya, Jen. I remember getting nervous and almost sad that it wouldn't be just the 3 of us anymore (and really, feeling the same way when Lucy was born that it wouldn't be just Bill and I anymore). And I can say, 8 months in, I can't imagine like any other way. :) I can't wait to meet Brady!

  2. These pictures are so sweet! Can't wait to see you all in just a few weeks.
