Baby thoughts...

We are having a baby!!!!!!!!! I can't wait....to not be pregnant anymore, that is. :) I just want to hold my little boy and tell him how cute he is and kiss his little face all of the time! I seriously can't wait to see what he looks like. I feel like that is what I have been craving the most...to see his cute face and study it...just stare at what my husband and I created. It is absolutely amazing the powers the human body has - to literally create another human! It is weird to know that I am holding a little human in my belly...feeling him move and anticipating meeting him - although he is LITERALLY a part of me.

Heavenly Father is such an amazing creator! He planned this all so perfectly so that we can keep life continuing on, hoping to teach these little people that we bring into the world all of the good things that we have learned in this life. And the crazy thing is that we have to hope we do a good enough job...whew...no pressure!

I am getting more excited since I went to my doctor's appointment today and it was the first appointment to check if I am dilating yet. I am 35 weeks and 4 days along. Well, she said that I am 1 cm dilated and 80% effaced! I am hoping this means that labor is just a few weeks away, but we will see what happens. It is just nice to know that my body is doing what it is supposed to, and a little more ahead of schedule than I thought it would.

This is all amazing, fun and scary...and I am SO happy it is MY turn to have children.  I can't wait to be called Mommy :) And I know that Clayton absolutely cannot wait to be called Daddy. Almost every day now he says he just wants to hold our baby, and he just wants him here already! Yeah, me too. Give me regular, unswollen feet any day. My feet are like balloons and my fingers are too swollen to wear my wedding ring...and I miss wearing it!

Soon...doc said a couple of weeks...let's see how right she is ;)

Yay! :)
