Dec. 27th 38wks

Another week that I felt was necessary to be creative and come up with my own comparison! One site I was supposed to be a leek and the other was a pumpkin, which I've already been a small pumpkin for the week of Halloween, so a Christmas Present it was!
At my appointment yesterday there was no change in my dilation but I was 50% effaced, so maybe something will happen this week. I've been experiencing lots of contractions and just starting to get to that uncomfortable, I'm ready stage! I'm so READY to meet this little guy, but I remind myself daily that this is the last time I will ever feel a tiny little miracle moving around inside me and that's what keeps me going!
Corby and I had a talk and I told him I wanted to get through Christmas and then he was more than welcome to come anytime, so Christmas as come and gone, let's go Corbs! The bags have been packed for a couple of weeks and I got the carseat in the car yesterday, we're ready Baby Boy!
Charley was in a mood this morning, it took Daddy coming up to take the picture, 4 takes, baby Stella, and Brady holding her present to get this girl to smile!

Dec. 25th Merry Christmas

Christmas is so much more fun with kids to watch open presents! To see the excitement all over their faces and in hear it in their voices leading up to Christmas, talking about Santa, seeing Elf Woody every morning, and then for Christmas Morning to finally get there, its priceless! We remind our kids on a daily basis want Christmas is really about and remind them how truly blessed they are! I hope they will always remember the real reason for Christmas!
 All set up and ready to go!

 Here they come!

 I love Brady's face and Charley's is pretty priceless too!
