This is 36 weeks.
I'm all kinds of pregnant over here.
I have that pregnancy mask thing with two dark patches on my upper cheeks and the never ending tinkling problem. Sleep is hard to stay in, so I guess my body is preparing me for sleepless nights with Drew! Notice my rings missing in the picture above.. My hands and feet swell in the night so I am ring less in the mornings. The swelling goes away as the day goes on, but my feet... there is nothing pretty about them as it is, and now there really isn't.
Mr. Broome hung the curtains in the nursery tonight and I am just about ready to post the pictures of her room. I am so happy with how it turned out.
Drew herself has been growing and moving so much. I am convinced she chooses bedtime to squirm her way up into my rib cage, making good sleep... a far. away. dream.
Life lately has been so busy. We took a quick overnight trip to Weedowee last Saturday and I am thankful we did. One night away was all I needed to get myself out of work mode in our house! Mr. Broome said it would be our last time to go to Weedowee before baby. How very strange!
Some complete honesty for you..
I am scared to bring Drew home! I baby sat for years, but those weren't my kiddos! This one is and I hope I know how to take care of her. Mr. Broome is not worried at all of course. I feel like I ask a billion questions daily and I have an on going to do list on my phone. I hope I can check it all off before she gets here. And how about she could come any time now??
We hear that we're going to love you all there is in the world. It's hard to imagine loving anyone more than I love your daddy. Heck, it's hard to imagine that Betsy is about to take a back seat in our family. (Literally, I just had my car detailed and she's officially sentenced to the verrrry back seat.) We are so excited for your arrival and all of the new things you are going to teach us. When I get flustered preparing to bring you home and worrying about what it will be like, your daddy says the same thing each time.. "I just can't wait for her to be here and to see her face." Yep, looks like mama is going to take a back seat too. You are already loved by so many. Family and friends have showered you with some of the prettiest, pink things. I am overwhelmed with all of the love you have been shown already. My hope for you and my prayer always is that you would know your Father's love and make that the center of your life. Your daddy and I will do our very best to point you in the right direction. We can't wait to meet you Drew, red, blond, or brown hair and all!(Although your daddy says we need a paternity test if you don't have red hair!)
