Let's just make a list

Top ten things to do before Emma arrives.

10.) Take a picture of my feet which are looking more and more like Fred Flintstone everyday.

9.) Take one last picture of my belly and promise myself that I can get this weight off within a year.

8.) Eat as much ice cream as is humanly possible because right now it is guilt free eating. I'm pretty sure it won't be included on my "get rid of baby weight" diet plan.

7.) Pack a box or two because if I haven't told you, we have to be moved out of this house by the end of March and find a temporary place to live until our new house is finished. What does a stress free life feel like?

6.) Find someone to give me a massage.

5.) Remind myself that all of the torture I've been feeling the last nine months will TOTALLY be worth it in a couple days.

4.) Convince myself that just because I can't literally "birth" my babies does not make me a failure as a mother. I just have a very particular cervix that doesn't have an exit strategy. It's kind of like me with a grudge, it just can't let go, in which case surgery is a completely acceptable option.

3.) Have one last dinner out with my hubby.

2.) Hug and kiss Jake as much as he will possibly let me.

1a.) Apologize to hubby for how crabby I've been the last nine months. Sorry honey!

1b.) Wish for the last time that hubby could get pregnant so he would truly understand what it's like.

1c.) Get one last night of truly good sleep because it's about to get crazy up in here ya'll.


  1. You are a wonderful mother and your body has done a fabulous job housing your babies. Hugs and kisses.

  2. Well, that list is probably out the window now!! Congratulations on the birth of Baby Emma!! She is perfect, and oh so beautiful:) Best wishes to you and your family. I am looking forward to seeing more of her with her family in this great big world!
