40 + 2 weeks. Max, you are late. Please come soon, mom isn’t handling this well.
Memorial Day weekend at the beach with my big and little hermit crabs.
Full term, and more ready than ever. Well, aside from packing my bag. Feeling tired, sluggish, and a good amount of pressure. JB and I have been trying to do little things together to enjoy the weather and the remaining time we have before Max is here. Sunday morning we ate breakfast at the park. the combination of sun, small kisses, and fields of buttercups was really refreshing. Monday after work JB planted me a garden outback where a picnic table will go for the summer. Aubrey and I painted the flower pots and placed them through the flowers, chaotic looking but perfect.
I really can’t express how entirely lucky I am to have the relationship I have. There isn’t a thing in the world that could make me feel differently than that. I have never loved so intensely until I loved you Jay, and dwindling down to the last days before I have such a small yet tremendous piece of you is almost mentally debilitating. My emotional capacity is on overload, but I’m ready to love more.
Mother’s Day was wonderful, and although I am technically an almost mom, I was spoiled anyways.
The girls and I took a trip to the beach together. Despite being 37 weeks pregnant and incredibly uncomfortable, it was so much fun. I am so thankful to have all of them in my life.
By time I got home James Bryan had cleaned my car, gotten me two cards, and bought me my not so diaper bag diaper bag.
Later on we went to see JB’s family. It was really sweet to receive a VB bangle that says mom on it, and matches all the moms in his family’s bracelets.
Getting more tired and more excited with each day… Dad and I are ready for you Max!
