We're to the point where we need to start gathering the supplies for our homebirth. I received my order from Baby Birth & Beyond a few days ago. So exciting! I still need to get things together around the house - towels, baby clothes, wash cloths, laundry basket, back-up phone list, etc. There's a lot more preparing for a homebirth, but it's completely worth it.
This is the first pregnancy that I've taken belly pictures. I never wanted to showcase my growing waistline before, but I figured it's now or never. This one was taken last week. When Leighton got home from work yesterday and I went to welcome him, our bellies hit before our lips. He laughed and said, "There's no denying there's a baby in there." Nope, baby and I both are definitely growing.
The kids are very excited about the New Baby as well. Jake has had a countdown going the past month or two. Since we go to my parents' house every Friday, he'll say, "Only ___ more times going to Grandma's until we get the new baby!" He's also told me that he can't wait to watch the baby come out of my tummy, like it's going to crawl out my bellybutton or something. I can ensure you, he won't be watching.
So, that's where we are on this baby journey. Pretty soon our house will show signs of an itty-bitty one again. We're getting close!
