~ A Vacation From My Vacation
As I write this title, I have to laugh because I know that most everyone knows exactly where I'm coming from on this.
We had a grand ol' time starting our road trip at 4:30 a.m. only to have my two year old have the 24 hour throw up bug, followed by our 12 year old, and than the 41 year old! But after that it was a nice time. It was great to see my grandparents and celebrate their 40 years of marriage, catch some sun, have breakfast with Elmo, and explore San Francisco.
Upon our return I had a NST appointment that my 16 year old sister came to and she got a kick out of hearing the heart beat and watching Liam squirm all over. Yes, she compared it to an alien. On Friday I have another OB appointment and I'm hoping that we might be able to set up a date for the C-section. I'm so ready to have Liam, as feelings of being anxious and excited increase as I realize that I'm almost in the single digit week countdown. I feel very bonded to Liam. I think this is because with each movement I fall in love with him. I did not experience this with Kathryn; it was more of, "How cool to have something alive in me." But after having Kathryn and than Mychaela, I know that I have to love as much as I can because I don't know how much time I will have (though I have faith it will be a long time for all of us) and so here I am already so much in love with someone I haven't met. I'm allowing dreams and hopes to form, a big risk considering what I have lost in the past, but it feels so good.
Here are some updated photos of our vacation and I hope that this finds you all well as you go through your own journey.
