BABY THURSDAY - 38 weeks - the last installment


I can't believe this is the last "BABY THURSDAY"! It has just flown by... seriously. I feel like I JUST announced that I was building a baby. Then POOF! She's gonna be here in 5 sleeps!


I'm so excited to meet this little girl... to watch my son become a big brother... to see how my family evolves from 3 to 4. I've been a little weepy this week thinking about all the amazing things ahead and saying goodbye to the things that will no longer be; the movements of a child inside me... the time my boy was an "only".


I want to thank all of you that have followed along on this preggo journey with me. You've all been such a support. xoxo


Catch you on the flip side - MOTHER OF TWO!
