Waiting for Emme

I'm 38 weeks!  I'm having a hard time being patient, waiting for labor to start.  At the same time I'm hoping she takes a bit because I have so much to do before she gets here!  Getting a little nervous about caring for a newborn, toddler, and keeping up with a 24/7 business.  Will Josh be able to adjust?  He's already burned out.  Will Carson have an utter meltdown since I will no longer be focusing on only him?  Am I ready for the amount of pain coming very soon?  Not to mention will our puppy freaking potty train before she's here!? My mind has been flooded with various thoughts.

However, excitement and peace are still the top ranking thoughts.  Peace that God will bring her out of my womb in his perfect timing.  Peace that the birth is going to be beautiful no matter what unexpected things may come.  Peace that she will perfectly fit into our lives because God understands what we need and what we can handle.

Now I just have to wait!

We had a scare this last week.  During my 36-week check up with one of my midwives, she thought little Emme might be breach and then asked me how I felt about a c-section.  Yikes!  Not what I wanted to hear so late in the pregnancy.  However, an ultrasound the next day confirmed that she is in fact head down!  HUGE relief.

Seeing my little girl on the ultrasound really got me excited for the birth, especially now that I can go on with the natural birth I have planned!

Mr. Social

Sorry it has been so long since I have posted last.  We have been very busy with the business, an active toddler, and a pregnancy.

Thankfully our schedule is going to slow down a bit so I should be able to keep up again:)

Carson has become Mr. Social.  He went through a shy stage that we thought was pretty normal.  Both Josh and I were extremely shy growing up so we thought he would be the same. Well Carson has seemed to grow out of it.  He now wants to say hi to everybody and I mean everybody.  Even people who don't want to say hi to him.  Which really bugs me.  How can you not say hi back to an adorable two year old!  The nerve of some people.  However, it is teaching him about the real world, it's just hard as a mom to watch.

This new social interest is also causing Josh and I to step out of our box a bit.  I don't think I've ever talked to strangers so much in my life!  Suddenly I'm striking up conversations with random people at the grocery store as I interpret what my son is trying to say to them.  Plus what he's trying to say is usually very two-year old oriented.  "Hi, HI, I have Lightening McQueen on my shoes.  He goes fast and my shoes light up...see...oh they didn't light up...sorry blows raspberry."  When I interpret these conversations people look at me like my child is strange.  Oh well, it makes sense to a two year old and I happen to find it adorable :)  I make sure to reassure Carson since I think his new budding social life is good for him.
